Yasmeen Gedeon, manager of the Wild Jordan Center, discussed in an interview with Jordan News that the center has several departments, including The Nature Shop,  The View, The Trail, The Hub, and The Tree Room Workspace, which features a dining area and a study spot. The center also has meeting rooms and a family café, a favorite hangout spot for families, designed to engage children in activities that teach them about Jordan's reserves and environment.

The center’s Lodges are long-term, environmentally friendly units-for-rent with basic, modern atmospheres. Each space includes a bedroom, a bathroom, a living area, a balcony, a small seating area, and a kitchenette.

Supporting the socio-economic development of local communities, The Nature Shop sells handicrafts, accessories, souvenirs, home decorations, herbal teas, soaps, and other locally made products.

Gedeon added that, “Wild Jordan Center provides meeting rooms that can be utilized for any sort of workshop. RSCN has recurrently used these rooms to hold nature-related lectures and handicraft workshops.”

The center’s menu is inspired by Jordan’s colorful cuisine. Among the most popular dishes on the menu is the center’s Jordanian breakfast.

Wild Jordan Center, according to the manager, offers a seasonal menu for lunch and dinner that includes a wide variety of healthy selections to satisfy all preferences.

“There are also vegetarian and gluten-free options, as well as fresh cocktails and smoothies, in addition to weekly specials and kids’ menus,” she said.

As a popular tourist destination, Wild Jordan Center was impacted by the pandemic and has witnessed a decrease in activity. Gedeon mentioned that, due to lockdowns, opening hours, and other restrictions, the center’s facilities were disrupted. The pet-friendly area and the market space are also temporarily closed.
