“Relaxing getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014

I have spent time with Ali on three separate occasions. I have sent all of my friends to the sunrise camp and will continue to do so. Ali is like family now (and he even knows my family)! Its great food (according to my sister the best chicken she has ever had, lol), great company (especially when we start singing, jamming and dancing), and very simple but clean facilities. I can't wait to go back in the spring.

Room Tip: Sleep outside under the stars. That is the best room in the camp!

This year i've spent for the second time a fe days in the sunrise camp with Ali. For me, it felt like coming home. Ali and his family give you a good feeling. During the day, we made some trips with the jeep and walked a lot. In the evening we went back to the camp and spent the evening around the camp fire drinking tea. The nights at wadi rum are amazing and ali gives you the opportunity to enjoy these nights completely by letting you sleep outside the camp in the middle of the desert (i did this the first time and it really was something i will never forget. This time it was too cold to sleep outside, but we wonderded the stars while taking a night walk). The camp is very clean and the food is very good. We spent New years Eve at the camp and it really was a special one underneath the thousand of stars...
If you are going to wadi rum, make it a real wadi rum experience and discover it with the people who lived there all their lives. Wadi rum is a wonderfull place and Ali takes care you enjoy it for 100%.

Ali and his family couldn't have made our visit more welcoming or easy. We were contacted with minutes of sending the query. Our plans were vague in terms of activities we wanted to do, time of arrival etc. This was no problem at all. Ali made suggestions and arranged everything including those not listed on the website ie hot air ballooning and accommodating my dietary requirements.

We arrived earlier than expected and were welcomed into his home, including given lunch which we were not charged for. The day of our departure was very early in the morning (for the balloon) so Ali allowed us to stay at his home that night and got up early the next morning to take us to the departure point. Nothing was too much trouble.

Whether you liked fixed and structured or loose and flexible travel plans (we were the latter) I have no doubt Ali will make your Wadi Rum experience on you will never forget.

We felt like we were visiting friends or family not paying for a tourist experience. I could not recommend Sunrise camp highly enough.

Spent the last 2 weeks with a friend climbing in Wadi Rum and we stayed at Ali's place recommended by fellow French guides. Ali and his family are very nice and always helpful. They can arrange everything for you from a taxi to collect you at the airport, to any trip in the desert. We had a great time with his family. Always nice, checking all is well all the time. Not many tourists and/or climbers although the situation is safe in wadi rum. Will definitely come back to Ali's family next time. Feels like you are part of the family. And cosier than staying at the rest house.

We stayed at Ali's house and camp for the last 2 weeks. We had a great time, great food and a lot of fun. The camp is not too big which is a real plus. You really get to experience the desert in the best conditions.
Visit Jordan ! It is totally safe and Jordan people are really friendly and welcoming.
