A very enjoyable and unpretentious evening at a Bedouin camp, in the desert.
These guys know what they’re doing and laid on one of the best meals of our “Discover Jordan Tour” and it was cooked in a pit. It’s easy to be sceptical of the authentic experience but the camp is unassuming and didn't appear to be “dressed up” for the tourist and the food is tasty enough to warrant the excursion on its own merit.
