Our New camp
Our new camp opened on 10th June 2018
Four years ago we started a small Bedouin guide business here in Wadi Rum, taking visitors out into the desert on jeep and hiking tours. We show them the spectacular sights, answer questions about our culture, and let our visitors experience the quiet and vastness of our desert.
Later we built a small "cave", a low-walled enclosure in the shelter of a mountain in the Um Imgur area. We made a fireplace and that was it. Nothing else. A simple "5-billion star hotel". Hundreds of visitors from all around the world have come to Wadi Rum, toured the desert with us, sat around the fire in our cave, shared a cooked dinner, and gone to sleep directly under the stars. And "sleeping under the stars" at our cave remains as an overnight option.
Our new desert camp
Last year we decided to take on a new challenge that would provide more comfort and convenience for our guests. We started to build a new camp, a permanent desert camp with sleeping tents, two bathrooms, a big dining tent, and solar electricity and hot water. We chose a beautiful location, 12 kms south of Wadi Rum village, deep in the Wadi Rum Protected Area - it's a place that is famous for its spectacular sunset views.
Our commitment to welcoming our guests, providing excellent service, great tours, delicious food, and an unforgettable Wadi Rum desert experience continues after the opening of our new camp. Just as before.
We continue to welcome small groups of two or three, who have been our most frequent visitors over the years of outdoor overnight camping.
But a full-facilities camp can provide for even more.
We are more family-friendly. Parents generally prefer bathrooms close at hand when they have young children, and a bed to tuck them into at night. Our family tent has five beds.
We are also able to accommodate larger groups. With ten sleeping tents we have beds for up to 22 overnight guests.
In our dining tent we can seat and cater lunch for day tour groups of 10 to 30 people. Guests can enjoy the magnificent desert views as they eat a delicious lunch, relax for a while, refresh themselves, and then continue on their day tour.
