We looked at a few other Bedouin camps, but once we saw this one we knew we had found what we were looking for.
The Bedouin guys were really friendly and the food was lovely. We sat round the camp fire at night having a laugh.
We climbed the mountain near by to watch sunset and it was beautiful.
We also got a discount on using the Turkish baths in Petra town, which is just what you need after a long day exploring the Petra ruins.
The camp is only 20 minutes from the main attraction in the area: Petra ruins - I advise that you give yourself 3 days and only do 6 hours per day or you will wipe yourself out, there is SO much to explore.
