The Rock is located on top of a deep canyon overlooking spectacular sunsets with strange rock formations as the backdrop The camp is run by three brothers with the occasional help from their sister. We were the only occupants, mum, dad and adult son, and we were treated like king, queen and prince. The hospitality was genuinely Bedouin, as was the food and the live music that we enjoyed in front of the camp fire. Advance notices were posted by e-mail about the set-up, what we would be charged etc, so we were well informed about what to expect.
