Wadi Rum Quiet Village Camp

Wadi Rum Quiet Village Camp
Guide introduction
 
Saleem is a highly experienced desert guide holding the licence of the Wadi Rum Protected Area Authority. Being a Bedouin himself, who grew up in the desert, he knows every inch of it.
 
Saleem has a camp of his family, where his family used to live some two decades ago. Unlike the numerous big and developed tourist camps catering for at least a hundred people each, all located outside of the Protected Area one after the other, this Bedouin camp lies within the boundaries of the Protected Area, in the very heart of the desert, in a remote shelter of beautiful sandstone rock formations. Saleh camp will be most appreciated by those desiring a first-hand experience of the real desert world and who take interest in getting an insight into the true life and traditions of the Bedouin people. At this enchanted site, silence will gain a new meaning for you. A night under the starlit desert sky will undoubtedly be the right cure to relax any strained nerves.
 
 
We as Bedouin tribes we are quite picky with the sites we reside, thus we have chosen the camp site to be suitable for man needs and safety. The camp is located in the western side of a great mountain to protect from wind and give stunning morning sunshine, as well as the centered location among touristy sites and climbing zones.
As we believe in the beauty of the Bedouin life, we kept in mind the needs of tourists and difficulties they may encounter living here; we constructed some modern facilities in the most Bedouin style we could achieve like toilets and hot water sources, all to go along with the Bedouin food, coffee, and tea we serve.
 
 
 
 
 
2If you are short on time, you can choose a two-hour trip and see some of the most important sights, though, you are advised to allow 4-5 hours for the various trips. Naturally, full-day or several-day trips can also be arranged. You will be introduced to the most impressive parts of the desert including historical and cultural sights (i.e. two-thousand year old Nabateus rock carvings) as well as sights of natural beauty (sandstone towers and bridges) etc. For a change, you can try camelback riding. Do not miss the chance to loose yourself in a wonderful desert sunset. Your desert night experience will start out with a traditional dinner, followed by Bedouin songs and dance. You will be spending the night in Bedouin tents, or - in the summertime - under the starry skyGuide introduction
