In order to the Jeep and Camel tour of the Wadi Rum, you must first go through the Visitor Centre, the gateway to the protected desert area. The Centre requires an admission fee (5 JD per person), but if you have a Jordan Pass admission is free. After the Visitor Centre, continue onward for about 6km to the Wadi Rum Village where I will greet you. From there, I will take you to the Wadi Rum Rest House for a cup of delicious Bedouin tea. We will chat with you about plans for the tour and outline them on a map. Once we finish with tea, we will set off into the desert.
Our first stop is Lawrence’s Spring and then Khazali canyon where you can see some Nabatean and Thamudic inscriptions. The tour proceeds to the Red sand dunes, the Anfishiyyeh inscriptiones, and Lawrence’s house which features some beautiful landscapes and mushroom rocks. Later, succeeding a stop for a traditional Bedouin desert lunch, the tour will proceed to an amazing sand stone arch known as Burdah Rock Bridge, followed by Khashaba canyon and then Um Fruth rock bridge.
After watching an amazing sunset, we return to our Bedouin camp in the middle of the desert for a feast on ‘Zerb’ – a traditional Bedouin dish of meat and vegetables cooked underneath the desert’s sand, and a night in Wadi Rum under the bright desert stars. Please note, If you are vegetarian, vegan or have any other dietary requirements, we can still provide you with a delicious meal.
After dinner, we sit around a bonfire, converse, drink tea, and our guides may perform music for you with traditional Bedouin string instruments, the ‘ooud’ and ‘rababa.’ For your accommodations you’ll be given a private and spacious Bedouin tent woven with black sheep hair with all the necessary furnishings for a comfortable stay. All camps come equipped with clean bathrooms and kitchens where we prepare your meals.
The next morning we start with an early breakfast. We shall then commence a a three hour long camel ride back to the Rum village. Camel riding offers the most authentic way to experience the natural wonders of the Wadi Rum.
If required, we will happily organize transport to your next destination!
Please note, that if you wish to add or change anything in tour this can also be easily arranged.
