Dana Nature Reserve

Dana is Jordan's largest nature reserve, measuring 320 square kilometres. The reserve comprises deep wadis and rugged mountains, which are home to a variety of flora and fauna. The reserve is still home to a number of local communities, dwelling in small camps and villages. This is a great opportunity to get more off the beaten tourist track and enjoy fantastic trekking and amazing views.

Dana Nature Reserve

The best way to explore the reserve is to venture through the wadis and along the craggy mountain paths following one of the many trekking trails on offer. Whilst the wildlife is not always easy to spot, the reserve is home to some 190 bird species, 37 mammal species and 36 reptile species. Some of these species are very rare, such as the Syrian wolf and sand cat.

Dana Village sits at the top of the reserve, and archaeological evidence suggests this area has been occupied since 4,000 BC. The reserve also has some of the oldest copper mines in the world, some of which can still be accessed by visitors.
