My partner and I visited the Azraq reserve. Nice small walking paths around the wetlands. Whilst stopping in the hide for 30-45 minutes we were lucky enough to see 6-7 water buffaloes following each other for a brief period of time. Lots of birds as...More

This place is just a shadow of what it used to be and even the little bit remaining is just enchanting. Jordan is water hungry and the influx of millions more people is putting even more stress on the country's resources. Taking care of Azraq...More

That is a shame for the government and the people of this country. It should be closed immediately, despite the fact that you will see nothing here and will keep on hearing excuses that you came on a bad time, and that you should have...More

On the drive from Amman to Azraq, you wouldn't believe that there was a wetland in the middle of the desert. Once upon a time, there was a vast wetland that attracted bird life from far and wide on their way to various parts of...More

I have rated this "excellent" because people should really see this ecological disaster ! There is a display room showing that this area used to be like Africa, teeming with luscious plants, wild animals, birds and fish. Now there's virtually nothing. The amazing thing is...More

Azraq Wetland Reserve was once a flourishing oasis; home to thousands of migrating birds from Europe, on their journey to Africa. Now that the water has largely been depleted from over pumping there is little nature left among the handful of water buffalo that you...More

We visited the Wetland Reserve at dusk after a long, hot day of castle-hopping in the desert. The kids loved running around the boardwalks and spotting birds. The set-up is lovely, shame that the wetlands are drying up and there aren't many birds to spot....More

Astonishing if you think about that it used to be a wetland.....devastating when you realize that it was destroyed by us. But good to see that it is still possible for birds to live in this region.

This is a wonderfully peaceful place worth a day trip from Amman. Can be also visited with a small kid and a buggy. The RSNC lodge that is close by provides great lunches if you book ahead.
