To be honest I thought It'll be a bad experience but turned out to be one of the best. It's nothing fancy (you're in the middle of the dessert) I liked the road since you ride pickups and have a real Bedouin experience. My family went to watch the sunset but I haven't they said it was amazing. The food... More

Camp is located on a massive levelled out car park, right next to 4 or 5 other camps, just 2 min off of the main road which was very disappointing since we expected a true "desert experience" a bit more remote. We had the most unwelcoming greeting upon arrival. He didnt even say "hi" and I even had to ask... More

This place was great for our limited time in Wadi Rum. Comfortable camp site with basic but roomy tented accommodation. Shower and toilet facilities are basic, but exactly to be expected whilst camping. We booked a 4wd trip into Wadi Rum at sunset - great value for money and an excellent tour guide was used, we had a lot of... More

Being in the desert for night camping was a dream I wanted to make it become true with lots of fun. Captain Camp made my dream come true successfully. Wonderful sky amazing location and very friendly staff, And of course clean and delicious food. We arranged 1 hour camel ride in the next morning and we loved that experience. This... More

A great stay in a wadi rum desert camp, comfortable ensuite tent(lockable) ensured we slept well and that night we were cooked a genuine bedouin underground bbq with lamb chicken and vegetables, a feast fit for a shiek! The 4wd safari was exceptional showing us the wadi rum desert formations and we also saw the 'martian movie crew campsite' as... More

We have had the best night to remember in our life in this desert camp. Very amazing night views and the camp itself was very busy with other tourists and they manage to accommodate the entire groups with excellent services, very nice tent and food in the desert was among all other locations very unique and delicious.

I went to Captain's camp for an overnight trip with my parents. It was amazing! The staff were so friendly and made us feel very welcome. The camp can host up to 200 people but at the time there were only around 40 of us. We were served tea and coffee all night and morning (the mint tea is the... More

I visited the camp as part of a business trip but it's fantastic for adventurers, couples and families as it offers something for everyone. It's in the middle of the Wadi Rum desert and the sunrise is incredible as it breaks across the sand dunes, well worth waking up at 5.30am for! The lodge rooms are very 'desert chic' and... More

The camp has very nice private rooms with modern bathrooms and lots of blankets to keep you warm (although no heat). The biggest mistake was checking in on a night when there were no other guests. The staff did their best but it was ultimately very boring. Mostly staring at a fire all evening. I would definitely check how many... More

Amazing mountain surroundings, great helpful staff. We were there when it was practically empty, but they still made great meals and had amazing music. Not a party place, which I think is good. Very modern and fresh bathrooms!
