One visit is never enough
Jun 2021
It's not easy to pick a "favorite part". The 4*4 tour? Sunset? Stargazing?

Although it's not my first time here, I still find it breathtaking every single time. You need to book a 4*4 sunset tour to see an unforgettable sunset. Once you're back, it's time to unwind and watch the stars, so do book a "stargazing" tour with Abdel Hadi Abdel Hadi.

Turn off your phone there. Enjoy the darkness, the silence, the hidden treasures of desert nights, and listen to what it teaches us about the universe. I am sure you will come again, especially if living in cities stresses you out!

Must-see for everyone
Oct 2019
One of the most beautiful places I;ve ever been to. The tours / excursion have been standardized a lot and everybody sees roughly the same points, but scale of tourism is still relatively modest. Looking at other places of Jordan, like the Red Sea and Jerash, this will probably not last forever.
At this time the place is still breathtaking, locals are still being paid fairly and nature is still taking care of (but you will see an occasional plastic bag in the middle of the desert...).
There are a few high-end camps to stay. Avoid them. The low-end ones are much more fun; I can highly recommend them.

MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACE ON EARTH
Oct 2019 • Solo
The Wadi Rum is by far the most beautiful place I have been, so many different types of rock formations and if you are part of a tour they will take you to some spectacular places.
Please read more about my trip in my blog.

Rum Horses - Atallah Swillheen
Aug 2019
I did a two-day one night horseride with Atallah Swillheen by myself.
His stable „Rum Horses“ and his horses are from the highest standard, Atallah is a trainend Rider.
You have to be an experienced rider and he will check you riding skills at his stable first before starting the ride.
He is easely reached by mail before the trip and by phone when entering jordan.
I arranged the trip from home widely in advanced so there were no surpises.
With us came Mohammed his assistant. He drove by car and organsied all the personal belongings, cook all the meal, brought the water und the food for the horses. He met us at the rest areas and arranged the camps for the noons and the night.

My horse was break in well and behaved impressively calm.
I got a perfectly safe helmed, as well all the needs for sleeping outside (mat, sleeping bag etc.).

I‘m a woman and went by myself. I felt nothing but safe during the whole time, Atallah took the best care of me and the horses.
He recalculated the route according to the weather and condition of the horses and me and was during the ride in connection to Mohammed, in case of emergency.

Because I went by myself the price for this trip was 350JD. The price just covered the costs and is widely undercharged. The price included the whole packge starting the trip 6am and done by 6pm the day after, with 3 rich hot meals, tea breaks with fresh cookies, breakfast with fresh made bread, local cheese, sweets etc., the working hourse for Atallah and Mohammed, and of course the care of the horses.

Besides the extraordinary ride, they told me a lot about Wadi Rum, and we visit historic sites.

As well, when finished the tour he made safe, that my trip back to Aqaba was safe as well.

I deeply can recommend to conntect with Atallah when planing a trip by horse.
He is the only adress you should conntect when you want to have a safe, legal, well cared trip.

Spectacular. Period.
Jan 2020
At 280 square miles, Wadi Rum is bigger than I expected. Vast. Incredible. Awe-inspiring. A special gift from God. Like no place else I’ve ever been. Spectacular. Period. I’m so glad we stayed one night in a camp (I wish it had been two). A four-hour jeep tour allowed us to see the major sites, but I wanted more. A word of warning: the ‘jeeps’ are re-purposed pick-up trucks with open air seating. Good thing we had packed warm clothing because our January ride was chilly. The question is not if you should visit Wadi Rum, but how long can you stay.

Serenity of the desert
Apr 2019
Maybe I'm familiar with the desert and it's not much different than what I already saw many times in the Egyptian deserts especially in Sinai but still it has its own taste. The serene desert with its sand colors, carved mountains, camels, Bedouins, ... It always improves your mood and gives you a moral boost and a good environment for meditation. Maybe the safari cars are not new and heavily exhausted, but it's even more realistic with the space around it, and the Bedouin drivers know where to go and what to see, and will show you the best spots to enjoy the sundown before you leave.

Spectacular!
Dec 2019
Wow, what can you say about Wadi Rum? Spectacular scenery; wide range of colours; remote and desolate; an experience never to be forgotten. In the middle of nowhere therte was even a tent selling souvenirs and offering local tea!
