  • Description



    My name is Zidane and I am an experienced guide and climber in Wadi Rum. I was born and raised in Wadi Rum with my family and I’ve spent my life exploring this magical desert. I have ten years experience as a guide, where I take travelers climbing, scrambling, on 4x4 jeep tours, hiking and outdoor camping.

    I work as a guide with a larger company but I also take tourists on my private tours and am building my own company.

    My English is good enough to communicate without a language barrier, but I need assistance with writing. I've had volunteers before who have helped me with my websites, helped in the camp (cooking and basic cleaning) and also as photographers on my daily tours.

    Right now I am looking for volunteers who can help myself and my Brother. You can stay with either one of us. We need help with our websites (Wordpress), advertising, photography, answering emails/texts from clients and in general working with a laptop online. I am working on making a new campsite in the desert so I am now also looking for volunteers who have engineering and building skills. Its going to be made out of concrete and rocks from the desert so if you have experience building with these materials you are very welcome to come and help me out.

    You can come with me on any tour and will spend a lot of time out in the desert and with my friends and family.

    I would like help with editing my website.
    Previous experience isn't a must, i want you to see it as a good learning opportunity too. Replying to e-mails, editing pictures on my social media and giving me advice about my webpage is also something i need help with.

    Next to computer work you can help at our camp with cleaning/translating for the tourists and come with them on the tours, asking them to send the pictures from the tour to you etc.
    I am starting to build a new campsite for tourists to camp in the desert, so I am looking for volunteers with engineering and building background. The materials are mainly concrete and natural rock from the desert mountains.

    When you are not helping out we can hike in the mountains together, explore Wadi Rum by jeep and camp outside together. If you don't have any experience with the primitive life I'd be glad to teach you how to scramble, climb, make a fire, prepare Bedouin tea etc.
