Camel Rides and Tours in Wadi Rum
We offer four camel ride options. The shorter rides make a great addition to a jeep or hiking tour, giving a slow-paced view of the desert, just as people have experienced for thousands of years in this part of the world.
The camels in Wadi Rum are well-treated and they have gentle natures.
All camel rides are accompanied by a guide.
Please note: On the 4-hour and full-day camel tour options the camel guide will also be riding a camel instead of walking alongside. To cover this cost there is an additional charge of 45JD per group.
