Traditional bedouin campsite
Discover the legendary Bedouin hospitality.
Wadi Rum Bedouin Campsite & Tours is located in a quiet spot in the Wadi Rum protected area close to Khazali canyon. You can reach our camp be by either jeep, camel or foot (guided only). The campsite offers excellent desert views. And you can climb up the rocks next to our camp for even more spectacular views.
As our camp is located in the heart of Wadi Rum, it is the ideal base for exploring our desert. The sand dune, Khazali canyon and Little bridge are all within walking distance, and other famous sites are within a day tours reach. A multiple day stay at our camp offers you the opportunity also to explore the lesser visited, more remote areas of Wadi Rum.
Your bedouin home
The camp offers many tents for accommodation: tents are twin, double or triple, hot water shower and vanity. Each private tent has regular beds fitted with a mattress, pillow and blankets. We have a shared bathroom facility with hot water showers and toilets. Our communal tent has comfortable seats and space for everyone around the fire.
The communal tent and outdoor sitting area
The communal tent and the outdoor sitting area form the heart of our camp. These are the places where it all happens! Here we welcome you to our camp, we drink the famous Bedouin tea and eat our meals. It is also the place where we talk and share stories and where we play traditional music and dance.
Our spacious, nicely decorated communal tent has a huge bench with thick mattresses and camel saddles to lean on, tables, stools and a buffet. With windows all around you can enjoy the mesmerising panoramic views from everywhere. During the wintertime, we close the windows and heat the tent.
Next to the communal tent is the outside sitting area. Like the communal tent, the outdoor sitting area is equipped with a huge bench with thick mattresses and camel saddles. Here we spend the long, sultry summer evenings under the billion star sky. During cooler evenings we will lit the firepit to give us warmth and atmosphere.
We have a modern, clean, shared bathroom building. You have two showers with dressing area, two western toilet and two wash basins at your disposal.
The sleeping tents
Our goat-hair, cabin-style, sleeping tents are located on the sand dune. We have ten 2-persons tents and two 5-person tents. We left extra space between the tents to grant you privacy. The tents are elevated and have wooden floors covered with a carpet. The 2-person tents have two windows for ventilation, and the 5-person tents have three windows. Further, the tents have everything for a comfortable stay in the desert: a light, beds, a small table, hooks and a trash can. Also, we provide pillows, bed linen and big, thick blankets to keep you warm and comfortable throughout the night.

Traditional Bedouin campsite
Discover the legendary Bedouin hospitality
Our camp is located in a wonderful place in the protected area of Wadi Rum, with tents for one, two, three and four people with a bathroom outside tent.
We provide a large tent in a traditional Bedouin style for eating and seating, a fireplace with Bedouin music, where we serve traditional cuisine like Zarb or Magloubah with bedouin tea and water.
If you like to enjoy the pure nature and silence, you can always sleep under the stars, and admire the surrounding majestic landscape.
Sleep under the stars alternative
Bivouac camping is a unique opportunity to feel like a real Bedouin in Wadi Rum desert. A unique opportunity to sleep at the bottom of a cliff in the desert. Spending the night in the “cave” is as close as possible, as the Bedouins spent their nights traveling with their camels. And as nowadays, Bedouins love to spend nights in the desert.
All meal included ( breakfast, dinner, and lunch )
