A small Bedouin style camp in Wadi Rum desert. There are a total of 15 well-maintained clean tents, (also a family tent) each with a couple of beds and although there are no en-suite facilities, the shower and toilet block (towels are also provided) is clean with running water - solar powered showers and external lighting. The main Bedouin tent, partially open to the skies, is where meals are served and the tasty local dishes are cooked under the sand in deep pits. Beer and wine are available at an extra cost. The views are spectacular and there is an open terrace set under the cliffs where you can sit and enjoy the surroundings. Another big advantage of this camp is that it is small and so absolutely no loud blaring music which people seem unable to live without these days. The sunrises and sunsets are spectacular and the night sky is amazing and so clear; I have never seen such a clear Milky Way - the camp lives up to its name!
The camp will arrange desert treks - walking - 4x4 or on camels, which ever you choose, and provide a trusted guide together with a picnic lunch. We did both a camel trek (takes about 2 hours from Wadi Rum village) and a full day jeep tour as well as walking in a gorge or two and climbing sand dunes. The owners answer e-mails promptly and are very helpful.
