Obeid's Bedouin Camp is an excellent choice for you stay in Wadi Rum. Obeid and his family or cordial and supportive of all your needs. They made our entire trip smooth with fair pricing. They also have probably the best Bedouin Whiskey (chai) in Wadi Rum! We coordinated with Obeid via e-mail and WhatsApp, which was very easy. He facilitated...

Great people, wonderful location near the north end of the Wadi Rum protected area. Big sky overhead, sand under your feet. Cozy "tents" have comfortable beds, and plenty of blankets. The walk up to the bathrooms is part of the charm of the place. Tasty Bedouin food and good conversation make meal times delightful. If you have an interest in...

We spent two nights and it was pan amazing experience, one we will never forget! It was very cold, so layering and extra clothing is a must in the winter. Salem made sure we were taken care of, warm and well fed! He made sure we were enjoying our experience. We did the sunset camel ride and we felt like...

Glowing reviews and a high ranking of the camp made this destination a 'must stop' for us. The booking & pre-arrival organisation by Obeid was professional and clear, and our host was waiting for us at the police check point as agreed. We were running 15 minutes late as our drive from the Dead Sea via Petra had not been...

We enjoyed our stay - arrangements were super easy and the food was delicious! You get personalised service at a very affordable price and a visit to Jordan is simply not complete without stopping in Wadi Rum and spending the night

We were treated to an absolutely smashing New Year's Eve celebration followed by an amazing 2 days at the camp. Here is my review: Camp rooms: clean, warm, and spacious. There are plenty of blankets to keep you cozy on a cool winter's night. Food: outstanding. The food is prepared by one of Obeid's cousins and he is a great...

Obeid's sons Nial and Salem were great hosts and we had a lovely time - they took special care to make sure that we were warm enough as it was a very cold night. The jeep tour was also a wonderful experience! Just a note - make sure to arrange to be met by one of them at the wadi...

I can really recommend staying here. The camp was in a great location with clean and comfortable facilities. The owners/hosts were very accommodating and friendly. Definitely number one on Trip Advisor for a good reason. Thanks Nial, Salem and Mohamad we really enjoyed our stay!

Arranged everything with Obeid on WhatsApp. Very simply done. No problems experienced. Everything very smooth. I wish all of my travel arrangements could be this easy. Food was very good. Wadi Rum was very beautiful. Obeid arranged my travel from Petra to Wadi Rum and from Wadi Rum to Aqaba which met my expectations on times of travel.

Obeid’s Bedouin Life Camp was great –– I stayed at his camp a few months ago. There’s a bunch of camps you could potentially stay at in Wadi Rum and we ended up picking Obeid’s camp simply because it was rated high on TripAdvisor, and suffice to say we weren’t disappointed. One of his sons picked us up from Petra...
