Insider's View

Experience the Bedouin life, slightly more luxurious though!

Insider's View

For supper, request 'zarb', best described as a Bedouin barbecue buried in the ground. Makes the meal a little bit more exciting!

Description

En route to Wadi Rum Desert Camp, you will have the chance to visit all the sites of interest within the Wadi, this includes Lawrence’s springs, Khazali Canyon and the Rock Bridge. There is plenty to see before the most dramatic views of Wadi Rum appear as the sun sinks below the horizon. Camping in this mountainous desert, under a blanket of stars, is an unforgettable experience.

Inside the en-suite tents, there is a fixed bed with comfortable, yet simple bedding. The camp has its own dining tent with low-rise tables offering a sumptuous BBQ with salads, mezzeh and soft drinks.

You can venture into the desert landscape by camel, jeep or simply by foot. Wadi Rum is home to stunning mountains of sandstone and granite with narrow canyons and fissures which are particularly beautiful in the morning and at sunset.

The camp comprises of eight double tents and two two-bedroom family suites. Although the camp enjoys fantastic views of the desert from the front, it is important to note that there is a much larger camp very close by. The camps do not share facilities, however it may impact how 'exclusive' your experience feels.

Location & Directions

Wadi Rum, Jordan

The Wadi Rum Desert Camp is in the heart of Wadi Rum, easily accessed from the main Wadi Rum road and village. 320 km southwest of Amman, 120km south of Petra and only 60km north of Aqaba.

When to go

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.
