Al-Naimat stated that desert tourism has become a main pillar of Jordan’s tourism industry, especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic that shattered the foundation of the tourism sector. He added that recently organized trips have contributed to increasing the number of tourists during this particular period of the year, which is characterized by moderate weather, making it an ideal time for such activities.
