We did not sleep at this camp. We (a group of 30) only had our lunch there after a 2 hours desert 4x4 trek. It is basically a village of tents. They will accomodate groups such as ours for lunches. The meat (mutton) is slowly cooked in pots buried in the sand. Otherwise you have the same food as in... More

We stopped here for lunch after a four by four vehicle ride through the desert. The food was plentiful and delicious. We were each given a plate piled high with rice and chicken and then there were other dishes to share. It's not often that I can't finish a meal, but this had me beat.

This is the most amazing desert experience. The tents are comfortable and there are plenty of blankets if you are cold. The food was great and the entertainment was very special with the camel and wedding party. Our hosts were wonderful people who made everyone welcome. We travelled into the desert by jeep and this was a thrilling experience but... More

A friend and i stayed in Jabal Rum for a night and it was amazing. First of all it's a camp so don't expect 5 star luxury, take it for what it is and just enjoy the experience! The tents were small but comfy, the camp itself was nice they had a central dining area where everyone gathered to eat,... More

We three were the only visitors out of a possible 600. The service was amazingly good. We spent two hours driving to various amazing locations.Visiting a Bedouin tent where we were made a fresh shay (tea) and entertained by an old man playing a single string goat skin instrument. We stopped and lit a campfire to make more shay and... More

We spent here the last night of the year. It was bitterly cold but we were given three blankets and so we manage to keep us warm enough. The Camp is big and well run. Tents tend to be fairly small and without bathroom, this being a negative detractor overall. Three years ago we were in Akakaus, Lybia and we... More

This is the place to stay in Wadi Rum. The tents are basic but comfortable, 2 soft beds and that's about it...but it's all part of the experience. 5 star tents with en suites are available at a price. Communal bathroom have private showers, hot water and are clean and very neat. Marble tops, tiled floors and a short walk... More
