The professional incentive and conference organiser is always looking for new, innovative, interesting and exciting destination's. New destination's are not always immediately apparent and when they are discovered they normally lack quality hotels and other essential services, including both an understanding of our specialised market and the need to provide a reliable service.
Jordan not only has an abundance of fascinating options to equal any of the world's great incentive travel destination's, it also surprisingly has the infrastructure to ensure your clients experience the high standard of hotels, transport and cuisine that they have come to expect.
Interest abounds, from the world famous hidden rose-red city of Petra, to Jerash - the best preserved Greco-Roman City in the world, the experience of a Desert Camel Race or a Treasure Hunt, a Four Wheel Drive Desert Safari and the abundant night-life in Amman. Karma House's imagination can also provide you with a 'BARBECUE BELOW SEA LEVEL', when you relax on a secluded Dead Sea beach, dressed in a specially monogrammed dishdash (a floor-length shirt). Or enjoy the unique sensation of floating in the Dead Sea and a meal served under a genuine Bedouin tent, including a non-obligatory after-dinner smoke on a Narjileh (water-pipe).
Experience travelling in the 'FOOTSTEPS OF LAWRENCE OF ARABIA', ride the Hidjaz steam train in style, including a full breakfast or open-bar onboard. Take lunch on the platform of Jiza Station or amidst the ruins of an old Ottoman fort. On your return, the train can be 'ambushed' and everyone taken by 'force' to enjoy Arabic coffee and tea to help wash down the fresh dates and Turkish Delight or worse still, an 'enforced' champagne stop!
Karma House Team has been formed to help establish Jordan as one of the major incentive destination's. They guarantee to provide you with a custom-made programme to suit most budgets.
The reaction from those incentive and conference organisers that have experienced Jordan is one of total surprise at the quality of every facet of the Jordanian product and the understanding of the needs of the incentive organiser by all suppliers.
It was all summed up in the simple statement 'How has it remained such a well kept secret for so long?' Now you can share in one of the best kept secrets in incentive and conference travel.
Contact us and be both surprised and delighted.
Let us be the planner for your next meeting or event.
Incentive Travel - The reasons are infinite...
Only a few places in the world offer you diversity of options when it comes to your incentive travel programmes and conference locations. Whether you seek adventure of a different kind, or simply seek a modern venue to host your next corporate meeting, Jordan is the place for you. With programmes regularly updated to add excitement to your group’s experience and fully equipped banquet halls able to accommodate thousands at once.
Jordan has always been a safe haven. We believe that it is one of the most unique destination's in the world, from the hospitality of its people, to the rich biblical and historical sites.

Arrive at the Turkish train station, Al-Jiza, located next to the airport. Luggage is transferred seperately by baggage van to the airport.
This is a city of many faces; the Citadel Hill affords a panorama of the old city with the Roman amphitheatre nestled among urban sprawl in the valley below. A visit to the amphitheatre in the heart of the city is a must; you can also visit the Museum of Popular Tradition and the Folklore Museum. Amman is a perfect base from which to explore the fascinating sights Jordan has to offer.
PETRA - THE ROSE RED CITY
This is the most famous attraction in Jordan. It is literally carved out of craggy rocks and is fortified behind a narrow, deep siq (gorge) that slowly winds through a massive rock wall. As you emerge into the sunlight, Petra appears suddenly in front of you as if out of a story book.
Situated just outside Amman is one of the best preserved Roman ruins to be found anywhere. There is much to see, such as the great oval forum, outlined with dome columns approached by what is now termed the Street of Columns. There are two public baths, three theatres and a hippodrome.
Overlooking the Dead Sea, this is where you can see the scenes where Moses sliced the ground to bring forth water. The Church at Mt. Nebo is believed to be built over Moses' burial site.
KAN ZAMAN VILLAGE
The Village dates back to 19th Century, offering the opportunity to wander through the cobbled alleys and experience the typical Jordanian culture, craftsmanship and cuisine.
The route T.E. Lawrence and Sherif Hussein took in World War 1 when fighting the Ottoman armies. Made famous by David Lean's film Lawrence of Arabia, this stunningly beautiful area is still patrolled by police on camels rather than horses or jeeps. Wadi Rum is a perfect place to visit or explore in 4-wheel drive vehicles, to share the experience of the desert with several Bedouin tribes that still live here.
The Dea Sea offers a scenery of unique natural beauty which humankind did not create, but can constantly enjoy. Take a swim where it is impossible to sink; why not read a newspaper while floating on the water?! The Dead Sea is the lowest point on earth at 400 metres below sea level.
AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 MINUTES

ON THE RIGHT TRACKS
Enjoy a full buffet breakfast, open bar or afternoon tea on one of the original steam trains of the Lawrence of Arabia era. Why not stop off for lunch or dinner on the deserted platform of Jiza station or amidst the ruins of Dabaa, an Ottoman fort that housed the garrison who protected the railways. On the return be waylaid by a hoard of raiding Bedouins and be taken back to their tent in the desert to enjoy Arabic coffee, dates, Turkish delights and cool sparkling champagne.

Taste freshly-baked shrak bread prepared in front of you by a Bedouin lady while listening to the sound of a flute being played by an old Bedouin man.
DEAD SEA BARBECUE
Do you know how to swim? Well, we challenge you to try it in the Dead Sea!! Experience a new sensation as you float on the water's surface at the lowest point in the world. After showering, sit on cushions around a low Arabic style table under a Bedouin tent, set on the seashore. An assortment of salads and mezze are served on the table while our chefs are preparing your selection of meats on a charcoal grill. Accompanied by the sound of the oud (similar to the bouzouki) and the tableh (a local bongo), the possibility of a camel ride presents itself too.
For the strong at heart, puff away at an arjileh (water pipe), while sipping our freshly brewed Bedouin coffee.
CLASSICAL CONCERT IN WADI RUM
Arriving at the so-called home of T. E. Lawrence, we are greeted by the Bedouins and their waiting jeeps to take us inside the desert to areas which history and nature have played a great role in forming. Experience the different magical sand colours, as the sun sets over the majestic rocky mountains.
In this beautiful setting, a Champagne cocktail is served by waiters in bow ties and white gloves as the sun sets for the night. Bidding the sun farewell is the Jordanian Army Philharmonic Orchestra, comprising of about 25-30 members, The guests will be seated on mattresses covered with oriental rugs overlooking the orchestra and the high mountain behind.
Special lighting will be directed on the mountain behind the orchestra bringing out a magical view of nature, surrounded by the natural echo of the music. The lighting system is computer controlled and is changeable according to the music played.
The classical concert will entertain for about 60 minutes (or as preferred) with pieces from Strauss, Bizet, Mozart, in addition to a couple of local or eastern classical pieces.
The concert will be followed by a sumptuous dinner, fully catered by the accompanying hotel of your choice. During dinner, musical entertainment will be provided by a hi-fi system playing an array of musical pieces.
DINNER AT BEIDAH
Imagine … You arrive at the entrance of a path, lit only by candlelight and are taken through an especially-constructed wall of rugs and then lead you to a special area, where you can see a beautiful Nabatean monument, brightly lit against the darkness of the night.
Music and cocktails are served, as are deliciously-prepared canapés.
The sound of the flute from amidst the rocks captures your attention as a flutist greets you.
You make your return via the same route back to the place you entered … only to find a complete set-up of tables and chairs on special carpeting, with waiters bidding you to be seated for a finely-prepared seated gala dinner. Leave all the intricate details to us to take care of and to ensure a most memorable evening under the star-lit skies of Jordan.
To end the dinner, what better than a magical display of fireworks, just above your heads, lighting up the skies of Petra and Beidah!
