Stay here!! The campsite is perfect. Completely secluded. In the jeeps you'll probably drive past far inferior campsites with small tents, all out in the open without much protection - but Mehedi's camp is fully surrounded by rocks and you feel cosy and safe. We had a fun scramble up some of them and took a good shot looking down on the camp, as shown here. There is one Arabic toilet, one Western toilet, one shower and one sink. Shower was only tepid, but it was very hot when we visited (early May) so the shower was the perfect temperature - I washed my hair and everything without trouble! Definitely take a torch for seeing around your room at night. Night toilet trips had no need of a torch - the moonlight was so bright :) Beds and bedding cosy and comfortable. Tons of blankets provided although we only used one. Food and drink were brilliant, really tasty. Really nice atmosphere in the communal/dining tent in the evenings - warm, lamp-lit, chatting to the other visitors and listening to the music/songs by Mehedi and his gang. Our actual jeep driver/guide was extremely quiet, but very courteous. We did a jeep tour of the sights on one day and a climb up Burdah Arch the next - a very fun scramble, recommended! Lovely cooked lunches and two-hour sleep/rest afterwards; also a few breaks with Bedouin tea and snacks. The desert was awe-inspiring and wonderful, and you will never know peace like it when you're out in the middle of it; we went to busy Aqaba for 5 days afterwards and I wished we had spent a night or two longer doing things in Wadi Rum. It was a real highlight. If you're hesitating about the desert and staying at this camp, let me dispel any fears - it was an amazing and really relaxed experience. Stay for a couple of nights.
