“Best Camp in Wadi Rum”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

I stayed in Captain's Camp per a good friend of mine's suggestion. She had been living in Jordan for two years and had frequented this camp at least a couple times a month. I figured that if she lived in Jordan and was still going so often to this camp, I couldn't go wrong...I am SO glad that I trusted her recommendation! This camp was perfect. We took a jeep tour through Wadi Rum and we passed by some other camps, even stopped in one for coffee...and none of them were even close to the charm of Captain's Camp. The accommodation's are cute, the service is 10/5 stars (yes, 10 out of 5!), especially Mahmoed..he was beyond helpful. The wonderful owner, Rafiq, was very helpful as well! And the dinner was incredible. Much more than we were expecting. It was absolutely delicious. There is no doubt in my mind that this camp is the best value at Wadi Rum. Amazing all around!

This is my third time at this camp and willing to be back again
Spending the last hours of my day on the desert watching sunset is a seen I love to have every day
The jeep tour with the camp staff is always a pleasure
The food -Ask for ZARB- is a unique taste
Tents are comfortable and spacy
Toilets always clean
If they missed something and got a comment the staff runs very quickly and solves any problem
Tea from wood fire is something !

Captain's Desert Camp is the most special campsite I have ever been. In the middle of the famous Wadi Rum Desert. With cozy tents, great food and the friendliest staff. You can enjoy a Arabic tea or coffee ceremony, listen to live bedouin music and listen to the silence of the desert. We took a Jeep tour and a camel ride to see the sunset (beautiful!!). The tents are basic, but clean. The shower area the same. I recommend this please to everyone. If Laurence of Arabia had lived, I am sure he would stay at this campsite while traveling trough the desert.

our stay at the camp was amazing! the owner of the property who was there with his family, went out of his way to accommodate our special requirement and the staff was so very freindly and helpful! i would highly recommend a visit! the stay comfortable, service great, food excellent and location was superb, would love to visit again :)
we stayed for 1 night but we wished that we could have stayed longer!

Room Tip: its a camp, right in the middle of the desert! the desert safaris can be arranged by them, a must do...
