Spring is an amazing time in the Wadi Rum desert. The rain in the spring makes the desert partially green and blooming. Camels, sheep and goats can be seen grazing, and spring is a very important time for these animals, which live in the desert environment all year round.
Mountains and large sand rocks can sometimes collect rainwater and direct it to a single point. When it rains, if you're lucky enough to be in the right place, you can see waterfalls in the mountains. Rain in the spring is crucial for the survival of animals, insects and plants, that inhabit
Water collected by waterfalls creates small green areas in the desert where animals can enjoy. If you go to the desert in spring, you can see these green areas and many animals in them.
The Bedouins, the original nomads of the Wadi Rum desert, have been depending on rain for centuries while grazing their camels there. Although there are natural springs in the desert, rain is also essential for humans. During the ancient times of the Nabateans, water that came in spring was collected in large natural containers located in the rocks and mountains. With that water inventory, it was possible to settle down and build permanent homes in the caves. Today, you can still see inscriptions made by the Nabateans who lived there thousands of years ago.
Spring is a great time to explore the Wadi Rum desert. During the day, it's not too hot, and there is plenty to see. If you thought that there is no life in the desert, you will witness the real diversity of the natural environment of Wadi Rum in spring.
