“Only disappointment in Jordan”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

I booked one night at this camp several months ago having studied the web carefully. Sadly we did not receive a particularly warm welcome . We took a camel ride and were led by a local boy who spent most of the 4 hours plugged into his music system! The jeep ride was OK but as was the whole stay, terribly expensive. The website is misleading re. costs. There is no mention of having to pay 35 JD extra to take a guide on a camel. The camp was dirty and there was rubbish everywhere. We were not offered a drink on arrival after a day of camel and jeep rides. There was a large crowd of "important" Jordanians having a feast at the camp who seemed to be the camp staff's main priority. Their children were allowed to run riot and scream and shout and ride bikes everywhere and this meant we were unable to appreciate the silence of the desert.They finally left the camp in their enornmous 4 wheel drives at about 2230 hrs! We could not leave the camp soon enough.

Wadi Rum is no doubt a beautiful area , but we felt that the numbers of jeeps and tourists roaring wildly all over the area are endangering it.Plastic bottles and bags are evident everywhere.

Perhaps we were just spoiled after the most magical 6 days trek with Yamaan Safady from Dana Village to Petra?

My husband and I were introduced to Mohammed Difallah by one of our drivers. He offer to take us on a jeep tour of Wadi Rum. He spoke great English and it was an wonderful, breath taking experience. The thing that struck me most about Mohammed is home much he loved the desert. He had a passion for what he was doing.
After the tour he invited us to spend the night at his "Bedouin Cave Camp". We ended up coming back a few days later for this experience. Let me tell you it was truly amazing! The camp was clean and relaxing. Bathrooms and water worked. The food was traditional and delicious. You had the option to sleep under the starts or in a tent. Mohammed made a fire after dark and told us lots of stories about the desert.

I highly recommend his camp if you want a true desert experience from someone who deeply loves his desert.

I spent a day at this camp in September and very much enjoyed my time there. The scenery of Wadi Rum is beautiful, and it’s just a very peaceful place. The family who runs this camp is extremely nice and accommodating. Their service made this experience fantastic! The food is good, and lodging is comfortable. I’d definitely recommend visiting here!
