Our beautiful and modern camp is located in the heart of the Wadi Rum Protected Area. We have a selection of single, double, family, and group tents with everything needed for your comfort, from Bedouin blankets to modern bathrooms. During the day, we offer a variety of services to enable you to discover this beautiful landscape the way that best suits your skills and desires. To this end, we offer day trips involving camel rides, jeep tours, and hiking excursions. If you are feeling adventurous, we invite you to try rock climbing, trekking, and backpacking. After a day of adventure, we invite you to come watch the sun set over the spectacular canyons of Wadi Rum. After the sunset, we will take you to the camp to eat Zarb, a traditional Bedouin meal. We will then entertain you with traditional music and dancing under the stars. In the morning, we will serve you breakfast before taking you on another day of adventure in spectacular Wadi Rum.
