Hospitality is an important part of Bedouin culture. Whether you arrive at the camp after a day tour in the desert, or straight from Wadi Rum village in the late afternoon, we try to do everything possible to make your stay at our desert camp comfortable and enjoyable.
We will take you to your sleeping tent, show you around, and provide a welcoming cup of tea.
You can explore our camp area, sit on the sand hills not far from the sleeping tents, climb a small mountain to watch the sunset in the quiet, or relax in the shaded area outside the big tent.
Evenings at our camp
After dinner, we sit around a fire, and talk about our life in the Wadi Rum desert. In summer, the fire is outside in the warm open air. In winter, the fire is inside the Bedouin tent. We will answer your questions about our culture, and maybe sing a song or two.
As it gets dark the awe-inspiring night sky of the desert, filled with billions of stars, gradually appears. You can relax by the fire and gaze at the shooting stars, the planets, constellations, and the Milky Way. With clear views to the north, our camp is in a great location for time-lapse photos of the stars circling Polaris, the North Star.
When you are tired you can retire to your sleeping tent and a comfortable bed for a good night's rest in the silence of the desert.
Staying overnight before a tour the next morning, or with no tour
For some visitors it suits travel plans better to arrive in Wadi Rum in the late afternoon or evening on the day before your tour.
We ask you to arrive about an hour before sunset, at the Wadi Rum Rest House in Wadi Rum village, where I will meet you. From the village we transfer by jeep to our camp 11 kms into the desert, so that we arrive at our camp in time for you to explore our beautiful location, and watch the sunset. So the meeting time depends on the seasons, usually about 4pm (in winter) and 5pm-6pm (in spring and summer); we will let you know what time the transfer leaves Wadi Rum village. We do not provide transfers to our camp after dark.
Price: 30JD per person.

Sleeping Under the Stars
All our full day (or longer) tours, that include an overnight stay, have this option of sleeping directly under the stars. It is an amazing experience, and our visitors always tell us how much they love and will always remember it.
Price: 20JD extra per person per night for sleeping under the stars, as an add-on to your tour and overnight booking.
It is a back-to-basics experience - there are no tents, and no bathroom or toilet facilities.
We travel to this site after dinner and evening around the fire at our main camp.
We provide mat and mattresses and blankets and you sleep directly under the stars. You are welcome to bring your own sleeping bag if you like.
In the morning there is the chance to watch the sun rise. Afterwards we return to the camp in time for breakfast and then we take you back to Wadi Rum village for your onward travel.

What to bring:
