Stayed only for a night, but a great one. Our tent/ cabin was clean and comfortable, and we were given more than enough blankets one could have. There's no light in the room apart from a candle, which adds to the whole glamorous camping under the stars experience. Toilet facilities are good and clean, much better than what we had... More

We stayed here for one night and the experience was a very memorable one. Even though we were in the middle of the desert,the tents were good and comfortable. The staff were very cheerful and lively and helped us a lot. I would surely recommend this camp to everyone who wishes to enjoy in the Wadi Rum desert!!

We did enjoy the camp but it needs some upkeep and maintenance. The hospitality and our guide Mamdoo were excellent. The desert is a great experience! In this time of the year it can be quite cold but extra blankets were provided. Views are excellent and the jeep tour was great with a nice sunset spot. The Toyota jeep was... More

After a long drive through this magical high desert, watching the sunset sitting by a fire of sagebrush scrub made by our driver, we arrived in the gathering dusk. The cabins are cosy with many blankets to keep the evening chill at bay and the welcome to a seat by the fire,to relax and drink and just absorb the utter... More

Wadi Rum has quite a few camps but this is one of the better. Try to arrive in daylight or early dusk for an easier settle in. Also if on a longer holiday try to leave main bags with driver and just bring overnight kit for this one.DO NOT forget a warm coat for night sky gazing as the Wadi... More

We loved every second of our stay. The welcome was warm and friendly and the tea flavoured with sage was delicious. Our guide kindly drove us out of camp for a better view of the sunset before returning to camp to meet the other guests. A great night had by all around the fire sharing stories and a very snuggly...

A wonderful desert camp . The tents were lovely and more like cabins that tents . The toilet facilities were good and plenty of hot water . The scenery is out of this world. The Cook makes a traditional meal buried in the sand . It was the best meal we had in Jordan sitting eating with a campfire and... More

We loved staying at the Milky Way Ecolodge. The location was stunning with some fun places to hike around. It's a great spot for kids and the staff were excellent. I would highly recommend this camp site.

We loved the experience of staying at Milky way. Both the guide and the cook were helpful and we did a tour in wadi rum which was interesting. Then staying in the desert at night is such an excellent experience. The tents are very nice, the bathroom is clean and there is hot water. It exceeded my expectations. Having dinner... More

This a nice camp to stay and enjoy wadi rum. It is not luxurious or fancy, but friendly, well located, clean and with good food. Enjoy the silence of the desert and the stars. It was very hit during the day, but fresh in evening. Don't forget a torch.
