Contemplating adding Jordan to itinerary - independent or tour/package?

Jump to last reply

I am planning a trip that includes a visit to Egypt, a safari destination (realtically Kenya or Tanzania, or Kenya and Victoria Falls), and I would like to add Jordan to the trip. I would fly from Cairo to Amman, and then from Amman to ? to begin the safari.
I am aware there is a ferry from Egypt to Jordan, but I have read many bad things about delays, the ferry terminal's conditions, etc. I would prefer to fly.

I would have about 7 or 8 days to see Jordan, but I can spend less time there too. I would like to know if it is better to arrange a private tour in advance where hotels/tours are prearranged or is Jordan easy to travel around independently? I am particularly interested in Wadi Rum and Petra.

Are there any companies fodorites could recommend for Jordan?

Thank you.
