Discover biodiversity in the Ajloun forest

Leave Amman for a relaxing weekend in the Ajloun Forest Reserve: 1,300 hectares protected and managed by the Wild Jordan Nature Center.

Head to the ancient city of Ajloun, in the north of Jordan, 70 kilometres from Amman. World famous for its 12th-century castle, which you should not fail to visit, it also hides another treasure, green this time: a huge and dense forest of oak, carob, pistachio, and strawberry trees.
A nature reserve since 1988, it is managed by the Wild Jordan Nature Center, a branch of the Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature, whose mission is the protection of sites and endangered species. The woods have been repopulated with deer, wild boar, martens, jackals, and grey wolves. You can see many of these on the many hiking trails that wind through the lush nature. Or, better yet, from a small, comfortable, log cabin that you can rent for one or more nights.
