We expected more from our stay at Ammarin Bedouin Camp. Instead of having an individual Bedouin tent similar to what we experienced in Qatar, we slept on the ground in a large Bedouin tent that was partitioned into separate sleeping quarters. As a result, you can hear everything within the tent. The toilets and showers were basic and located in a separate bath house.
The biggest problem was the lack of lights and electricity. The electricity was turned-on only from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. So, if you wanted a hot shower, you had to schedule it in the evenings -- but it still was only warm. And, if you wanted to read at night, you had to resort to using a flash light.
As for the food, it was a real disappointment and lacked in variety and quality. We had better food prepared by our guides as we trekked from Dana Biosphere Reserve to Petra. Also, the food was served in a Bedouin tent that was candle-lit, which made it difficult to see what was being served.
Because of its remote location, if you don't have transportation to the surrounding communities, there is nothing to do at the camp. You are isolated.
