A vast natural valley dotted with sandstone and granite cliffs, Wadi Rum Protected Area presents a dramatic picture of desert beauty, accessible to visitors for tours and activities. The area is inhabited by Bedouin tribes, some of which still sleep in traditional goat-hair tents. The natives also run much of the local eco-tourism economy--research ahead to book a hiking, camelback, or jeep tour with them. Experienced climbers may also be interested in checking out rock-climbing options in the wadi.

A wonder in its own right. Beautiful dessert that releases the adventurer in us all. And at night, the sky provides a gorgeous view of the stars. Highlight of my time in Jordan. more »
spent a night here under the stars and did the jeep safari, the place is just out of this world, perhaps why they filmed Martian here! a must see place if you're anywhere near Jordan more »
A must do trip at least once in a lifetime. One has to hike the mountain next to the camp. The panorama cannot be described because the English dictionary is limited when trying to explain such a remarkable experience. I'll try my best though. The experience was subliminal, astounding, and breathtaking. أجمل من قطعة أرض على المريخ.
Amazing camp to stay for the night. The guide and the host is really kind and welcoming. We did the desert tour with this camp and it was really fantastic. I recommend totally. They made a homemade food in bedouin style and its incredible to learn this culture. Go and enjoy
