This is my second time at Captain's Camp and I only have wonderful things to say about it. The camp itself is so beautiful...I'm not much of a camper but you can even have a tent with its own shower and toilet and the furnishings are beautiful. The food is excellent and the staff are so helpful, courteous, and generous.... More

we stayed only one night after visiting Petra but this is something i definitely recommend. We had the chance to meet the owner and were very pleased with everyone that we interacted with. We did a tour in SUV, and the sunrise camel ride (both i recommend). Food and service were also quite good. Truly a happy campers

I'm not the "camp" type, but I had a "de luxe" tent with my own bath and shower. So it was ok. The mix of colours in my room hurt my eyes though...guess it has to be that way in an oriental tent.The water in the shower was cold. Apparently the deposit is far away and you have to let... More

I stayed here with a large group of young adults for three days in February. What can I say? We experienced the highest level of hospitality and friendliness possible. The interaction of Captain's staff with our group was unbelievable and truly memorable. We danced, sang, played ball, and interacted in a genuine and intimate manner. The touring of Wadi Rum...

What I should mention is that I didn't expect to find so comfortable place in the real desert! I mean, it's untouched nature around and a toilet with a flash in a camp! The camp by itself is very clean, unlike some others we passed by. The Bedouin-dressed owner (or administrator?) and stuff are very friendly, always help and try... More

Such a charming place to discover Wadi Rum through Captain's Desert Camp. Very comfy and convenient rooms with several categories to chose from. The staff arranged us a camel ride to watch the sunset which was beyond beautiful. They are very particular of the spots they chose to show you around and give you the best desert experience; from camel... More

I've stayed in this camp twice now, as a solo traveling alone in Jordan -- in last year and again in this year and i will be back again this April too Hard to beat a night in traditional Bedouin tent firming part of this authentic campsite. Watch the stars, grab a BBQ by the camp

Hard to beat a night in traditional Bedouin tent firming part of this authentic campsite. Watch the stars, grab a BBQ by the camp fire and then retire for the night under piles of blankets (we visited in the off season, winter, when temperatures dip to the 40s during the night). While there I ran with a friend in the... More

Visited Wadi Rum through Captains Camp on my families recent trip to Aqaba and had a fantastic experience. Our driver Mahmood (ask for him if you can) really knows what he is doing showing you around and although there are many tourists there he made an effort to take us away from the crowds and feel that it is just...
