Over 20 years of experience
We have been the explorers for generations
Zaman dates back to 1998, with its name deriving from the Arabic word for epoch or era. Given its close proximity to Petra, the awe-inspiring capital city of the ancient Nabatean Kingdom and one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, the name was an obvious choice for this family business. Despite thousands of years passing, Petra has not lost its charm and magnificence, making it a powerful experience for visitors. The fact that archeologists believe there is still much to uncover only adds to its excitement. For a travel company with an adventurous spirit, there is no better place to begin than here, and thus, Zaman was born by Mohammad Farajat.
