Did the desert experience at Wadi Rum when I visited Jordan in December and this camp was a real highlight. The staff were all very friendly and informative, and there was a great welcome. The buffet at the camp was superb, especially the flat breads made in front of you

Don’t be thinking hotel here. This is sleeping and eating in tents in a wind-blown desert. Be thinking experience. The food is amazing – authentic Bedouin. At night, as the desert sky fills with the brightest stars you have ever seen, the tent comes alive with traditional music – drumming and dancing. We did the jeep tour which is interesting... More

There was music after diner and we were lucky that the night was fresh without insects. Sunset on the desert was amazing as was sunrise in the camp. Mohammad,... More

This was most appreciated as I require to use a CPAP machine at night. The toilet block was reasonably basic but had hot water for showers etc. We were not too keen on... More

Lovely setting done really well. We got a jeep tour from the camp and it was great fun sitting on the back of a pick up. The food at night was superb and a big surprise on quality, being at a camp. Didn't use the showers as they looked a little rough but the facilities were very good for a... More
