It's really bad experience, the food was less than what you can find in refugee camp, the entertainment is basically the same crew "reception, waiters and chief " dancing with bad singer , Room with dirty sheets . Room too hot without fan or ac or even clean bathroom I waste 200$ there for service less than homeless shelter offer

We decided for Wadi Rum Captain Camp because it was clear that Osama Ali as the main organizer can flexibly make the stay exactly as we want. And we wanted the combination of jeep tour, camel tour and some hiking in mountains on border of Saudi Arabia. From the first moment everything was going on as it should be. I... More

While the camp is cute and the food well done, the "tent" was absolutely uninhabitable in summer. Mosquitoes ate my wife alive (see pics). This was after we sprayed the tent, sprayed ourselves and used the mosquito nets. Neither we or our private guide got any sleep. To add insult to injury the staff was loud and noisy at 4... More

Visited recently for one night. Camp is well situated under interesting cliffs with pigeons roosting in crevices. Food and entertainment was good. Hot shower was appreciated. The tents were a disappointment. Feathers on floor in tent which suggested pigeons have access to them. Sheets on bed had grit/sand in them. Luckily I had my own silk inner sheet. Mattress was...

Wadi Rum is a very beautiful location, unfortunately marred by what looks like a Beduin camp that is most deceptive. On closer inspection our room was made of concrete block with only a door and no windows or any means of ventilating the place. After a lovely meal and it was very nice indeed, we made our way to our... More

Couldn't have asked for much more really. It is easily accessible if driving (even when I wasn't sure where to go I rang the Camp and was given perfect and simple instructions). Tents themselves are great, as are the bathroom/shower facilities. Very sociable place with a huge central area to relax in. Absolutely excellent food, and hugely helpful staff. The... More

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
