The situation for disabled people in Jordan

Jordan, through its attitude towards the different situations of a disabled person, offers travellers a completely satisfying and appropriate comfort zone.

Something to really take into consideration

The Jordanian government, working with several associations, is doing everything to best respond to the needs of its disabled population in terms of infrastructure and accessibility. Whether it's in the capital or the more rural towns, the roads and pavements are quite well adapted to allow for circulation without causing problems for people with reduced mobility. During your trip to Jordan, if you ask a specialised agency you will be able to use an adapted vehicle and the services of a trained and experienced local guide. The hotel services are also completely satisfactory and will guarantee you a safe, problem-free stay.

Tourist sites

Accessibility to tourist sites, particularly to the majestic necropolis Petra, is completely possible and very well considered for any disabled person. The visitor centre offers amongst other things visits in horse drawn carriages for people with reduced mobility, an original and charming way to discover this exceptional site. It's also possible to explore the site on the back of a camel or a donkey: an epic and idyllic experience. In the same way, all cultural or natural sites are accessible with no problems. Whether its Mount Nebo, the Dead Sea, the Wadi Rum, nothing is impossible during your stay in Jordan. It is however recommended to gather information before leaving and to do a little bit of organising to benefit from the best services and the most suitable guides.
