The Space


**If the days that you wish to stay have already been booked by another party, please contact us directly. We will be happy to set up a separate tent for you**

The Wadi Rum desert is a truly awe-inspiring destination. Uniquely shaped mountains rise vertically out of the pink desert sand, separating one dark mass from another in a magnificent desert landscape of strange breathtaking beauty.

The Bedouin people have lived in Wadi Rum and the surrounding area for centuries.The village of Rum has now grown as the only permanent settlement within the protected area, but there are still some Bedouin who still live far out in the desert. They move wherever the grass grows to provide food for their livestock.

I am a Bedouin who grew up in the desert, but I now live in Wadi Rum in order for my children to go to school. My mother is also no longer nomadic and lives in her tent about 8 kilometers away under the desert stars. Her tent has four separate spaces as well as a kitchen, toilet and animal pen. It is in walking distance from one of the most popular sites in Wadi Rum, Lawrence Spring under the shadow of the great Jabal Rum.

We invite you to spend a night with her, listening to her stories and drinking tea around the fire and watching the sunset. She enjoys hearing about other countries and learning different languages. You will share a hearty traditional meal with her before viewing the starry sky. The room in her tent can sleep a family of 6. With many clean mattresses, blankets and pillows you will be very comfortable and warm. Once you awake and enjoy breakfast you can go see the goats or perhaps she will teach you the old Bedouin game of Sije.

This is a unique opportunity not only to sleep in the desert but also to learn about the traditions, culture and daily life of a Bedouin.

Guest Access

Out here in the desert life is fairly simple but at our camp you will still have access to a clean bathroom and toilet and new, clean bed linen as well as clean mattresses, pillows and blankets.

The thing you will really like though is the food, dinner time is sacred here and we invite you to share with us a delicious meal, perhaps cooked in the Zarb (an oven beneath the desert sands!) or even a traditional Bedouin BBQ.

Interaction with Guests

Of course throughout your whole stay you will be accompanied by the gentle Bedouins. If not me personally then by my Mother and the rest of my family. I'm sure you will find it easy and enjoy the Bedouin life. However, you also have the freedom to explore the area on your own if you desire.
