Before we went to Jordan it wasn’t my intention to sleep in the desert. I only wanted to visit the desert in a daytrip. But my mam with whom I was travelling she wanted to stay in a camp and sleep in a tent in the protected area in Wadi Rum. On the internet we found the website of Khaled’s Camp and after getting some information we decided to stay for one night.
Khaled himself picked us up in Rum village. With a jeep we made a tour through the desert. He told us a lot of the life in the desert and the habits of the Bedouins. He made a stop to make a sweet tea for us. After a four hours drive we arrived at the camp which is at a beautiful location. This is the place to be if you want to go to Wadi Rum. This camp is a great location because it has the right size and it is very clean. It is the perfect place to stay. To see the sunset in the desert was amazing and also all the stars in the evening. The dinner was excellent and afterwards we were sitting around the camp fire. Omar played games with us. We had a wonderful evening. The next day after breakfast we left the camp and we were sure we want to come back to Wadi Rum and to Khaled’s Camp again because we had a great time in the camp, we loved the hospitality of Khaled and Omar. And for sure just one night is too short to enjoy life in the desert
Tip: take some sheets and towels.
