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...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!!

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-q. Next door, camouflaged into the rocks is a newly-built small shower and WC block, with ceramic tiles, a proper sit-down loo and running water (though please do not use too much).
There are three sleeping areas, each with beds and lots of fleece blankets
You have a choice. Either one of the small cluster of romantic, bedouin tents in the heart of the Wadi Rum protected area, (9 kms or so from Rum village but still within mobile-phone reach), or there's a more modern camp within Rum village itself, more sheltered and with an open fire, high-speed wifi and extra insulation.
In either case, you will have the chance to sample the wonderful food cooked by Saleh's wife Alia -- this is unique in Rum, many of the other camps use imported, non-bedouin cooks; it's not the same! Saleh and Alia are running a family-friendly family business!
To enjoy your visit to the full, you should be interested in other cultures and other ways of life. . . with Saleh and his family you won't only be exploring one of the most special, tranquil places on earth but you will experience bedouin culture, hospitality and history. Please don't waste water (though we do have proper showers and bathrooms); move around quietly and respectfully and share your thoughts and responses with Saleh and his family.

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.
What an experience, all day exploring the desert, followed by a night at Salah's camp. His whole family made us really welcome, including some traditional, delicious food prepared by misses Salah.
I fully recommend doing this trip!!!

My teenage son and I spent a day and a night with Saleh's family. I only wish we could have stayed longer. Saleh's son Moazz took us to some beautiful spots in the desert and gave us tips on sand boarding. He is great company....More
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 perfect ...
the best way to get to wadi rum is by rented/private car.
