“Best part of our Trip to Jordani”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

My wife and I recently visited Jordan for nine days. We decided to spend two nights camping in Wadi Rum. We selected Rumshines Camp because it was listed in Lonely Planet and had a very thorough website. We found the staff to be extremely friendly and welcoming. Not only did they tell many Bedouin jokes and constantly supply us all with tea, they also led a nightly dance party. The cook provided a deliciously wide variety of food for dinner--easily exceeding our expectations for camp food. The flush toilets and shower facilities were exceptionally clean. We took a seven hour 4wd jeep tour with a member of the staff and had a once in a lifetime experience. We even hiked through the Khazali Siq with his encouragement and guidance. The location of the camp in the Sunset area is actually located in the Wadi Rum protected area. Also, the views from this particular camp are sublime .we highly recommend this camp.

The desert of Wadi rum.....unforgettable.....
I wanted to share our positive experience with fellow travellers:
We stayed with "Rumshines" for 3 days, doing a combination of jeep and hiking.
Our guide "Salem" was a great beduin with a lot of knowledge about the desert! The food was delicious, the tents spacious and clean, the service was perfect and the staff caring and fun.
The location of the camp is amazing, hidden inside the desert,in the Sunset place .
I can still picture it in my head with the fire, the beduins, the sand, the atmosphere... unforgettable....
I really advise you to contact "Rumshines Camp". they really made our trip!
