It is a vast valley stretching across Jordan from the Desert Highway to the Dead Sea. The reserve is located within the deep Wadi Mujib gorge, which enters the Dead Sea at 410 meters below sea level. The Mujib Reserve is the lowest nature reserve in the World, with its spectacular array of scenery near the east coast of the Dead Sea.
It is one of Jordan’s many natural reserves and much like the Siq in Petra with small rivers running through it and waterfalls. Several endangered species of fauna inhabit this nature reserve as do Ibex, Arabian gazelles, leopards, foxes, wild boar, a variety of fish, and birds.
