Our group of four (all in their 60's) really enjoyed our day and overnight stay with Mehidi.
Five star it isn't but then it doesn't pretend to be and a certain level of fitness is required. We all slept in the tents on good mattresses and all slept well. The food was amongst the nicest we had whilst in Jordan. The booking proceedure was done most efficiently including our pick up from Petra..
Mehidi was very flexible to our needs and age. We did just as much as we wanted and enjoyed his knowledge of the desert. We have ridden camels in the past so didn't bother this time and travelled around in Mehidi's old Toyota that he loves with a passion.
I would recommend Mehidi and the serene Emily to anyone of any age with a sense of adventure that doesn't have to travel 5 star..

- 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
