We had a very nice time at Al-Nawetef camp. If you want to go to the Nawatef camp don't go and expect luxury. The place is basic though very cozy, has a really nice view, very very good food, nice atmosphere and friendly helpful people. The rooms have a bed and that's it. The facilities; shower, toilet etc., where clean... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. Facilities were basic but adequate. There was no electricity during our stay so the camp was lit by paraffin lamps, though I understand that their generator was broken. The shower wasn't particularly powerful but hot. The camp staff are very friendly and helpful and it's a great place to meet other travellers, as you... More

If you come to Jordan and you do not stay at least one night here, I feel sorry for you. It is one of a kind camp located on the edge of a valley. All the tents/houses have a fantastic view, and if you are up early like us, you might catch the clouds rolling in beneath. The food is... More

We stayed one night at this beautiful camp before starting a multiple day hike from Dana to Petra. The camp is beautiful situated with a stunning view over the valley. We enjoyed the sunset while we had the place to ourselves. The goat hair tents are surprisenly warm and comfy. The food was very good and prepared with love. The... More

My husband and I (late 20s) stayed here for two nights in very late August. We loved it! The goat hair tents are small and basic but clean and functional. They have real beds in them, pillows, mattresses, blankets and all. We slept well, although there was a dog barking all of the first night which was annoying. Other than... More

I was not into camping but after staying here I am a convert! Watching the sunset whilst sipping on tea was an amazing experience. The dinner was delicious and freshly cooked. You have the option of a Bedouin tent or a little 'house' with just a bed in it. We opted for the house which has it's own small balcony.... More

We just come back from Jordan and stayed at the Al Nawatef Camp one night in May. Even if the camp is rather rustic, it is very clean. Great views with very nice sunset. Ali, the boss, can organize some hiking with local guides who know each stone of Dana reserve as they were born here. We had good time... More
