Per camel, along with a guide, you visit various places and end the tour at our camp for overnight. Accommodation in private tent and all meals are included in this package.
Our representative will meet you at the Wadi Rum Visitor’s Center and assist in your transfer to Rum Village to start your camel tour with one of our professional camel guides. Each of our local guides, all members of the Bedouin tribes indigenous to the area, has a personal and professional knowledge of the reserve and its sites. Although our camel guides are not fluent English speakers, they have a deep understanding of their profession and their animals.
A full day’s tour crosses the red sand desert of Wadi Rum and covers the sites below. Lunch in the desert and an hour of rest time are also included:
• Lawrence’s Spring – a serene mountain spring from which Lawrence is reputed to have drunk
• Khazali Canyon – a deep fissure in the red sandstone Khazali Mountain – decorated with a variety of ancient rock art
• Al Qattar Spring – across the valley from our fixed camp, a short walk up from the desert, the spring at Al Qattar Mountain affords fantastic desert views
Your tour ends in our fixed camp, where you may watch the sunset, go for a wander or relax around the campfire, before enjoying a traditional Bedouin dinner with tea. After dinner, conversation often lingers late around the campfire, as we gaze up at the magnificent night sky. Our camp staff can sometimes be convinced to share traditional Bedouin music and stories…
After a traditional breakfast, we’ll escort you back to Rum Village for transport to your next adventure!
