The highlight of my trip to Jordan.
On a stop-off during a 4 hour camel trek we visited Khazali Canyon with beautiful Nabatean carvings. Arriving at the camp just after sunset we ate amazing food (v accommodating - catering for vegetarians) and Tasir gave me an Oud lesson before lots of dancing and singing :)
The second day after a jeep trek at break-neck speed we climbed Um Ad Dami, the highest peak in Jordan with views of Saudia Arabia. After, we drank lots of Bedouin tea and ate the best humous and baba ganoush I think I have ever tasted.
Mehedi and team are lovely people and wonderful hosts. I would heartily recommend Bedouin Directions to anyone. When can I go back?!

- Enjoy some dinner, the stars and the night in the desert. This Bedouin camp is in the white desert in a unique and beautiful location, secluded and away from any other tourist camps well within the protected area of Wadi Rum. We have simple desert bathrooms which have showers and toilets (Western). We have a comfortable main tent with a fire for sitting and relaxing in. Guests sleep in Bedouin tents which are supplied with bed frames, mattresses and plenty of blankets. Guests also have the option of sleeping outside under the stars while staying at the Camp. Or for the intrepid we offer Bivouac camping in the wilderness area (no tents). ... more less
