Cox & Kings has launched a one-off escorted botanical tour to Jordan from April 18-27, 2013.

Led by English garden and landscape designer Paul Hervey-Brookes, the ten-night tour leads in at £2,195 per person, with a single supplement of £395, and includes flights with Royal Jordanian, transfers, excursions and breakfast accommodation.

Jordan has more than 2,500 plant species, of which 100 are endemic, and the tour includes visits to Dihbeen Forest, Dana Biosphere Reserve, Wadi Rum desert and the Royal Botanic Gardens, where it is possible to see some of these.

The archaeology of Jordan is also explored; including the ruins of Iraq al Amir, the desert 'castles’ of Qasr Amra and Qasr Kharanah, and Petra, which next month celebrates 200 years since its rediscovery.
