Welcome to Wadi Rum, Jordan! My name is Mehedi Saleh Al-Hewaitaat and I run a small Bedouin Guide, Tours & Accommodation business for couples, families, friends & single travellers to visit and discover this beautiful desert, where I was lucky enough to be born.Our aim is to help you to have a wonderful un-commercial adventure exploring Wadi Rum in the way that suits you best. For you to feel comfortable and connected with our desert, us as people and our Bedouin Culture! We offer Jeep Tours, Hiking Tours, Scrambling Tours, Camel Treks, a beautiful and simple Bedouin Camp to stay in, and Bivouac Camping - sleeping under the stars.I work together with a small group of very experienced Bedouin guides, who all have their own strengths and skills. We are family (brothers, cousins) &/or from the same tribe &/or friends. Together we have been guiding tourists as Bedouin Directions since 2008. All of us have worked with tourists for many years before this time, and between us we have more than 60 years experience!We offer a wide range of programs to suit every age, interest & fitness level. We can cater to your needs from 1 hour visits to 5 day programs or more! I also specialise in writing Tailored Tours for people who want to do something different!We have built a simple Bedouin Camp in an exciting location in the desert. It is a bit different to the usual Camps in Wadi Rum! A secret hideaway in a unique canyon in the beautiful white desert. We aim to strike a balance between a Camp that will be comfortable for our guests (you!) and experiencing a taste of Bedouin life. We also offer Bivouac Camping in the desert ('Camping under the stars'). Many people enjoy completely escaping into the natural environment of Wad Rum, and for them this is a great option.My administration aim to respond to all e-mail & contact form enquiries, promptly, professionally, clearly, in good English!

A full day tour by truck with our guide A'yid was fascinating and we saw the beautiful colors of the dessert both morning and late afternoon ending with a wonderful sunset. Great for the photographer! A'yid could not have been more helpful and as well as preparing a delicious lunch from scratch-lighting the fire,cooking the food and serving it he... More

First and foremost, I have to say that the website for this camp was as easy as ordering from a menu. You can easily pick activities within any level of comfort and challenge, and the Q&A section should answer any of your inquiries. Mehedi, the proprietor, was easy to communicate with via email. We got there earlier than we should've.... More

Magical experience doing the day tour/overnight camp with Bedouin Directions. Highlights: 1. Dealing with Mehedi in arranging the trip. Mehedi is very clear in his communications so you know exactly what to expect on the trip. He was very professional ensuring a high level of service and very attentive. 2. Mohammed - our driver. A very mature 20 years old,... More

He was very professional, had excellent English, was very flexible and accommodating to our travel requirements. He gave a lot of help and suggestions in creating an itinerary that best suited us. And the day before we made our travel we had to... More

The tour was tailored exactly to my wishes and as a solo female traveller I felt perfectly safe with Mehedi and his guides. I strongly recommend the bivouac camp, it was amazing to sleep under such bright stars!

My college-age daughter and I (her mother) put together a great trip to Wadi Rum, and around Jordan, thanks to Mehedi. I took the red-eye from West Coast USA to Amman, met up with my daughter and headed to Wadi Rum thanks to a driver arranged by Mehedi, then embarked on a 3-hour camel ride in to the camp at... More

From the planning stage Mehedi was helpful and professional. When we arrived until we left we were well taken care of. We were afraid that the tour may become boring as it was so many hours long- but at the end we wished we could stay longer! Him and his team of drivers made our trip to Jordan amazing!! Thanks...

We looked at several options for 1-day tours at Wadi Rum, and this tour offered best value. Mehedi communicated early and clearly, and his brother Sulleyman led the tour for me and my wife. While Sulleyman didn't have best stories to tell (we passed by a few other tour guides who shared more stories behind landmarks), he was very flexible... More
