We spend one night at Wadi Rum. Our first night in Jordan with 3 young children. Our guide Mamdouh welcomed us upon arrival in the village and took us to a great spot for sunset. The camp is well located and offers a stunning view of the surroundings. Watching the stars at night is an incredible experience ! We also... More

We spent one night in this camp. Our host really looked after us. He cooked an excellent meal and entertained us round the camp fire. It was great to eat under the stars by candlelight. The tents are fine but you need a head torch. The facilities are basic but quite satisfactory. The stars are wonderful - no light pollution.... More

We spent one night here. A peaceful, well equipped camp with good freshly prepared food. Amazing views and more stars than I ever thought possible.We had an adventurous ride across the desert in the camp jeep and out guide sprinted to the top of a sand dune putting us to shame! Thoroughly recommended, just remember to take a torch.

This place should not be regarded as a Hotel, but like an adventure place. It is ideal for groups of young people who would like to spend a night in the desert or for active families. During the day you can do various excursions into the desert, a MUST, by Camel, Foot or Jeep. The Food was great, really tasty... More

An absolutely stunning place to stay. We had a wonderful Bedouin guide, Dahi, who sang us beautiful Bedouin songs as we went through the desert. The food was delicious and Mehet made every effort to make sure we had different delicious dishes each night that we stayed whilst Abdullah, Salem and Amahdu made us feel so welcome that we extended...

We spent a very comfortable night at the Milky Way camp. The beds were comfortable, the tents clean and spacious, the linen clean (towels forgotten/not provided in our tent). The food was tasty and the service at dinner fine. The toilets were clean in the evening, though by morning there was no water left in the wash basins and 2... More

We had a marvellous stay at Milkyway ecolodge. It was all, and much more, we could ask for a perfect overnighting: such humorous and kind service by the guide, wonderfully comfortable and clean facilities, super-tasty meals made by Mathat and the unbelievably captivating scenery. They were willing to fullfill any of our needs at any time. Only one way to... More

This stay was a highlight of our tour of Jordan and Israel. We visited in August - with a group of 11. We arrived at the camp to lunch on the "terrace" which was a very cool place to chill and then went off for our jeep tour, with a variety of stops, ending in a place to watch the... More

I am familiar with several camps in Rum, and this one as well as being a pioneer of the quality camps, is still the best by far. I expect this is because of the meeting of east & west: Anne, who is French, and Matar, who is Bedu from Rum. Tents are clean and crisp. Toilets are cleaned daily. Showers... More
