We arrived in Wadi Rum after two days walking around Petra and three days diving in Aqaba so we were a little worn out. Nadjah and Mohammed met us at the rest house for coffee before we took off on our hour camel ride which is just the right amount of time on a camel. Afterward Mohammad met us for the 4WD part of our tour. He could sense that we were tired so he allowed us to go at our own pace. Wadi Rum is beautiful and Mohammad was a great tour guide! He joked with us, took great photos, and showed us a great desert sunset before taking us back to the camp. The tents are clean and comfortable, with enough blankets to keep us warm in the cold winter nights. The camp has ten tents, to accommodate up to twenty people. We met in the mess tent for tea, music, and a delicious dinner. The next day we hiked up to Umm Adaami with Seleh to great views of Saudi. Afterward we shared a great lunch with a group of British girls who we had met at the top. We relaxed and chatted for hours before heading back to camp. It was a great couple of days! I highly recommend Wadi Rum Green Desert. Nadjah is very professional, hospitable, and always concerned about our satisfaction. He was also very prompt in returning my emails (in excellent English!). The camp was so quiet and secluded with amazing moon and stars at night. Good food, clean bathrooms, nice people. Wonderful experience!
