We spent two beautiful nights in the desert staring at the stars. Mzeid's bush camp is incredibly private and quaint. We saw quite a few and this was by far the best camp we came across. We were guided by Rashid, Mzeid's son. Rashid is young and new to guiding however he was extremely sweet and attentive. We were taken... More

I had a totally different experience from the previous poster. The desert camp of Mzied Atieg was recommended to me by Rania at the Mariam Hotel in Madaba. I was unsure about staying at a camp as a single woman, having read of some unhappy experiences, and when Mzied answered my e mail and told me that I would be... More

We arranged to meet inside the desert, near his house. We went for the tour with his son. We were expecting some stops in order to admire... More

Built against a sandstone outcrop, it looks right over the open desert. Some guests and children would climb the rock for a bit of fun. The camp is now a couple of long... More

The night we stayed was a big night for the family as one of the men from the family had gone to ask permission to marry a girl from another village so we were taken out on the jeep safari by Mzeid's son. His son looked after us really well, he took us to see the sights and at each... More

This tented camp consists of a long, rectangular black tent such as those used for time immemorial by families and caravans traversing the Middle East deserts. The exterior may seem austere in today's world, but inside the larger tent is divided into rooms (open above about 5') within which are four man "pop tents" where guests actually sleep on foam...
