Wadi Rum Nature Tours & Camp
We offer Two types of accommodation depending on your preferences and the size of the group.
The first option is to spend a night under the stars, and is our most popular and our personal recommendation for your stay. We will take you far into the desert, away from the light of other camps and the village where you will be surrounded by the beauty of the desert. It is here that you will spend the night under the stars, where you can clearly see the milky way on moonless nights and a billion stars light up the desert night. We can visit several different locations if you stay for multiple nights under the stars and enjoy the night with candle light as the ancient Bedouins have done for generations.
The second option is our permanent camp which features goat-hair tents for sleeping, and a shared tent for meals and entertaining. At the permanent camp we have bathrooms and kitchen facilities. Campfires are present at both camps to keep warm on cold nights, for cooking, and simply for making tea.
It is your choice to sleep under the stars in the open desert just like the Bedouins have done for years or to enjoy one of our modern tents. This is best suited in the warmer months, but can be done at any time of the year. In both camps we provide blankets and mattresses, however you may bring your own sleeping bag, although it is not required. There is no electricity in the desert, however we have lanterns and candles for the evening. This makes for a real authentic Arabian Night!
Price for overnight camp stay: 35 JD per person
Price includes: Transportation to and from the camp, dinner and breakfast.
Authentic Bedouin meals
All of our meals are cooked fresh with local, quality ingredients. Our breakfasts typically include eggs, cheese, jam, bread, fruit, and tea or coffee. Lunch is served during our tours and typically consists of cooked vegetables, salads, tuna, cheese, fruit, bread and tea. Depending on the tour, a box lunch may be provided if there is no opportunity to cook. Dinner is served at the camp and may include chicken, Mansef (meat with rice on top of bread), Zarb, barbeque, rice, soup, vegetables, bread, fruit and tea or coffee.
Zarb is a local dish and is made in a unique Bedouin oven. It is constructed by digging a hole in the sand and building a fire inside. Once the fire is burned down to the coals, the meat and vegetables are covered and placed over the embers. Finally, the meat and vegetables are covered and buried in the sand and left to slow cook. The result is a delicious, tender, juicy meat. If you have any special dietary needs please notify us upon booking so arrangements can be made.
