Wadi Rum: Saleh's Safari Camp -- for wadirumtours

Cabin -
6 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 16
Wadi Rum Village, Wadi Rum, Al Aqabah Governorate
First have a look at Saleh's wadirumtours web-site -- you will see why Wadi Rum is one of the most special locations in the world!! Then notice how many 5*-star reviews Saleh has been awarded here on this site. Now you know why you must reorganise your visit to Jordan so you can stay overnight after a memorable day touring in Rum. You're also choosing to make a difference! Not only is this the most cost-effective luxury bed-and-breakfast in Jordan, but it's also pioneering, community-tourism with a wonderful bedouin family! The money you spend goes directly to them.
Your accommodation is quite simply a luxury bedouin tent -- a careful blend of the traditional and modern. It's like stepping into a Lawrence of Arabia movie, settling around the camp fire to the passing sounds of camels! and eating fresh from the bar-b-...

Interaction with guests
Saleh will meet you when you arrive in Rum village, with bedouin tea and hospitality; he'll discuss how you wish to shape your personal, individual visit and will then take you touring or to his luxury small camp in the heart of the Wadi Rum nature reserve. You can leave your bags and your vehicle, if you have one, at his house in the village, before you set out on your adventure. Unlike other guides in Rum, Saleh and his wife Alia provide an authentic bedouin family experience, giving you the chance not just to visit this special place but to share another way of life, in harmony with nature.

Additional Rate and Availability Information
It's worth having a look at Saleh's own web-site (wadirumtours dot com) before you book -- he gives details there of tours as well as accommodation.

Most people just stay for one or two nights. That's fine (and the price even includes breakfast!)
Contact us to reserve your dates; pay in advance here for the first night and then pay for additional nights, any extra meals and any tours of Wadi Rum when you arrive.

About the neighborhood
Rum village itself is nothing special. A typical collection of concrete-block houses, each with its own busy back-yard for keeping chickens or goats or camels, or maintaining and repairing aging Toyota Land Cruisers. There are a couple of very local restaurants and supermarkets and an air of constant activity.
But the glory of Rum is the location, set in what Lawrence of Arabia called 'this processional way greater than imagination. . .[the walls] in crags like gigantic buildings' -- for more descriptions see our own web-site below.

Wadi Rum beyond the village is, to many people, one of the most special places on earth. It is somewhere just to be and to experience and to develop a relationship with nature and human transience that is impossible almost anywhere else. It is a...

How to get there
from Europe to Aqaba Otherwise you can fly to Amman, the capital of Jordan (daily from Heathrow) and combine Wadi Rum and Aqaba with other top-level locations, including the Dead Sea, the Baptism site, Jerusalem, Petra, Mount Nebo, Jerrash, Makawir (Herod's Castle), etc etc.

Or you can travel south immediately for a warm and relaxing holiday in the splendour of Wadi Rum and on the shores of the Red Sea at Aqaba.

It is possible to fly internally in Jordan, or to travel by express coach from Amman to Aqaba; and after that to use local taxis (we have a very reliable taxi-driver in Aqaba) which are not expensive.
The best way to explore and enjoy Jordan is to hire a car and again we can help with that.
Wadi Rum itself is about 40 minutes drive from Aqaba, off the main desert highway tha...
