My girlfriend and I arrived to Amman on Sept 7th, Obeid arranged to pick us up at Amman to start our 3 day tour. The first day we visited Madaba, Mount Nebo and Kerak Castle. The desert road to Wadirum is incredible! The scenery is breathtaking... When we arrived to Wadirum we thought we came to another planet. Obeid himself picked us up at the main entry of the visitor center. He speaks english fluently what made the communication very easy. Obeid is a very genuine and easygoing person. He and his sons made our stay a memorable and unforgettable experience at the desert. That evening Obeid took us out from the camp to a strategic location to see the sunset. After we came back to the camp, they have prepared us a traditional beduine dinner and after a delicious meal they had set up some carpets outside with the fire for us to contemplate the sky which was fully covered by stars. We have never seen the sky so beautiful in our life. We also saw 2 shooting stars... Salim and his cousin sung very nice songs with a drumb. We had a lot of fun. When we went to rest at our private tent, we found our bed done... I was not expecting that!! My girlfriend and I could not believe it. We had the commodities of hot shower, flush toilets and comfortable mattress in the tent ready for us to rest. All these in the middle of the desert. The day after we had the jeep tour and camel tour on our way to Wadi Musa Petra.
We had an awesome experience at Obeid's camp and we will definitely go back and recommend it to everybody. This experience at Obeid's camp is a must when you visit Jordan!!
