Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

For a small country, Jordan has an extraordinary range of climates. The best time to visit climate-wise is in spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November), when the daytime temperatures aren't too extreme. April is probably the best month, when temperatures are warm and wildflowers are in bloom. March can be cold and rainy in the north but is balmy by the Gulf of Aqaba and the Dead Sea.

Description

Wadi Rum Night Luxury Camp is set in the remote Jordanian desert, where guests can sleep under the stars of the Wadi Rum as the Bedouin people have done for generations. Their unique ‘ Full of Stars’ bubble tents reinvent the desert camping experience.

The 25 tents of the Wadi Rum Night Luxury Camp are located inside the Wadi Rum protected area of the remote and rugged Jordanian Desert. Each of the luxurious tents is equipped with comfortable beds, air conditioning and sumptuous linens, with views of the Wadi Rum mountains and the rolling dunes beyond. The jewel in the crown of the camp are their ‘Full of Stars’ bubble tents, a collection of stark white structures perched amongst the sand of Wadi Rum, with transparent walls and ceilings offering uninterrupted views of the night sky and the breaking dawn. These unique dwellings house an en-suite bathroom and a king size bed, with the option to draw up the shades should the powerful desert sun become too much. Elsewhere in the camp you’ll discover the communal dining tent, decorated in the traditional Arabic style, where you will enjoy delicious, hearty Jordanian cuisine amongst the unique desert surroundings. The camp’s private chef prepares fresh cuisine and hand-baked breads to satisfy even the heartiest appetite. After waking to the magical desert sunrise, the days are yours to explore the desert as you wish. Perhaps you’ll decide to ride a camel across the sand dunes, travelling as the Bedouin people have done for centuries, or opt for a more high-octane mode of transport and tour the desert in a 4x4. Sand boarding and Jeep adventures area also on offer, along with visits to traditional nomadic tribespeople that make their home amongst the sands of Wadi Rum.

Accommodation

The camp’s 25 luxurious tents range from the more traditional Bedouin-style tents, with Arabic furnishings, draped white cotton and beautiful views of the desert, to the almost intergalactic ‘Full of Stars’ bubble tents. These otherworldly dwellings offer endless views of the Wadi Rum mountains and desert from their transparent walls and ceiling, allowing you to fall asleep under the vast blanket of desert stars and wake to the sun rising over the dunes. En-suite bathrooms feature in all the tents, including the Full of Stars bubbles, as does air conditioning for the hotter months of the year.

Activities

Wadi Rum Night Luxury Camp can arrange a variety of thrilling adventures amongst the desert sands of Wadi Rum. Experience a camel ride, up the ante with a 4x4 experience or Jeep adventure, or sand board down the vast desert dunes. For a more sedate and authentic experience, visit the local nomadic tribespeople and learn how they exist in this arid, unforgiving environment.
