“Fantastic evening”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

This was included as part of our Jules Verne Discover Jordan holiday, and we are so glad that we it was! An evening out not to be missed. An authentic meal in Bedouin tents away from the world. Beautifully cooked traditional food, good music, very friendly people and a wonderful atmosphere in amazing surroundings.

“The best meal we had in Jordan”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

It was dark and cold when we visited but we were welcomed with coffee and a wood fire. Our group of 5 were the only ones there that evening. The cold starters were excellent followed by lamb roasted in a traditional Bedouin way (in a hole in the ground!). I am vegetarian but even I had some and it was delicious. An atmospheric and memorable evening.

“Great initiation into Bedouin culture and Arab hospitality”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

Great initiation into Bedouin culture and Arab hospitality. Had not been in an Arab country before but this was very good. Was reasonably busy and the atmosphere in the camp was very friendly even with other guests. A very early start was needed for Petra but this was a great place to be based.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

We stayed at the Rock Camp last week and it was wonderful. The location is beautiful. The tents and bed are lovely and comfortable. They went out of their way to provide us with a vegetarian meal. We were the only guests that evening and had a wonderful time sitting around the fire drinking tea with our hosts. Really recommend it.
