Camping in Wadi Rum

Print

le-tende-degli-ospiti In the heart of Wadi Rum legendary red-sand desert, rightly described by T. E. Lawrence as "vast, echoing and God-like," our Campsite. The facility has been designed as an eco-friendly campsite, in harmony with the towering red sand dunes, the moonscape rock formations and the millennia-old Bedouin tradition of hospitality to travelers.

Comfortably rustic, the camp area is illuminated only by candles plus the famed glories of the night sky over the desert.

Far away from lights, noise and pollution, the camp offers you the opportunity to relax, refresh and recharge, under the blazing spectacle of the "million-star" light show of the bright stars.

Each 2-person or family sleeping in tent is furnished with beds, sheets and blankets, luggage stands, dresser and candles.

Two Bedouin tents offer a chance to enjoy a meal, conversation and games.

A campfire, of course. Choice of Arabic seating or tables and chairs at mealtime.

A convenient communal blockhouse with toilets and showers.

Great religions, grand enterprises and unshakeable traditions have been formed against the minimalist canvas of the desert landscape...it's an experience not to be missed.

Our camp manager, from the Bedouin tribes of Wadi Rum, can organize camel excursions, hiking trips or jeep tours of the area.
