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. Please note that the desert temperatures can drop significantly at night time, even in the summer months. Therefore we recommend bringing a jumper with you.

A small, exclusive camp located in the heart of the magnificent Wadi Rum, Bespoke Hideaways Discovery Bedu has just six tented suites. Ideal for those in search of adventure combined with utter comfort and luxury, this camp is rather special.
The Bespoke Hideaways Discovery Bedu camp in the stunning Wadi Rum provides six tented suites, four of which have double beds and two of which have twin beds. The spacious suites also have a private deck and an en-suite bathroom with a hot shower, meaning you don't have to compromise on comfort in order to experience the wilderness of the desert.
As well as being luxurious, Bespoke Hideaways Discovery Bedu is eco-friendly. With power provided through solar panels, the camp does have electric lights, although the main areas are mainly lit with lamps and candles in the evening to create a more authentic atmosphere.
The central tent is handmade by the Bedouins and serves as lounge and dinner area. Dinner is an occasion in itself, with traditional Bedouin cuisine served either inside the main tent or alternatively a table can be set up under the stars. You can enjoy breakfast on a sandstone hill beside the camp, looking out over the incredible desert panorama.
The sofa area at the front of the camp provides the perfect spot to enjoy a glass of wine while watching the sunset. For more privacy, there are also two day beds, perfect for lying back and watching the incredible night sky twinkle above you.
The camp is made up of six tents, consisting of four doubles and two twins. All of the tents are en-suite with copper sinks, hot showers and a private loo. The decoration is simple, yet high quality, with touches of Arabian style including embroidered cushions inspired by the colours of the desert. There are also electric lights within the tents, providing an extra level of comfort.
Children are welcome at the camp but there are no specific facilities for them.
Dinner is served at the camp each night either in the central tent or on a table set up under the stars. The cuisine is traditional Bedouin fare served family-style, meaning you can try a variety of delectable options.
Due to the use of solar power there are electric lights throughout the camp and within the tents, and there are also oil lamps and candles available to create a more mystical atmosphere.
Explore the magnificent natural beauty of the desert either by camel, jeep or on a trek. Wadi Rum has been used as a background setting in a number of Sci-Fi films depicting alien planets, which testifies to its unique colours and geography.

From the warm welcome waiting for you upon arrival at the Bespoke Hideaways Desert Camp, you know you are in for something special (if the drive through the spectacular desert hadn't already given it away!).
The tents in the camp are comfortable and spacious and the bathrooms are very well done, with lovely toiletries. You do have to wait 5-15 minutes (depending on which tent you are in) for the water to run hot, but that is to be expected as the solar power-heated water comes down through pipes from a hill.
Although there isn't air conditioning, the window flaps and door to your tent can be left open as they are protected by a mesh which keeps out the sand and is also opaque from the outside, maintaining your privacy but giving you a nice breeze!
The service is immaculate, and it feels slightly surreal sitting on the camp's sofas, toes in the sand, being served chilled glasses of wine and snacks as you watch the sun go down.
Dinner is a wonderful occasion. It starts with the chef revealing his surprise cooking techniques and then you can enjoy your meal family-style, helping yourself to the variety of delicious dishes on the table in front of you.
Afterwards you can go back to the communal sofas or retire to your tent's terrace, where you can take in the magnificence of the starry sky above you.
