Terms & Conditions:

Full details of our terms and conditions.

Wilderness Camping

Our wilderness camps provide a nice escape from everyday life, great views, and good service. Some people may refer to it as “glamping.”

 

Our local bedouin support sets up the campsite during the day, so everything is prepared when you arrive. Upon arrival, enjoy some time to sit down, relax and have some bedouin tea. Then when dinner is ready, our bedouin support will reveal the locally made feast.

 

We provide private or 2-person tents depending on your preference. In the tents we provide foam mattresses and sheets. So no sleeping bags are needed unless you want to bring your own.

Bedouin Camp

This is the other way to spend a night in the desert of  Wadi Rum.

Those are Bedouin-style campsites with all facilities and entertainment.  Beyond that, you’ll be still able to walk around the camp to witness the Desert in all its vast, silent beauty, but with all the comfort!
