    Hi
    My name is Salman I live with my family in Wadi rum, we are Bedouin Family and we have our traditional, culture, we like to meet a new people and exchange many things with them, also we have a small bedouin traditional camp in wadi rum desert.

    We are small scale, family-run business that provide authentic Bedouin experience to our guests. All of our guides are son of the Bedouin, borned and raised in this desert who are always eager to share with you, the way of the desert-dweller and the best spots hidden within the vast desert. Be it an epic adventure that you are looking for, a cultural buzz, or just to enjoy the warm breeze, the timelessness and serenity, there is always something for you in Wadi Rum.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The travellers can learn many things, they can learn a lot about the bedouin live. Who are the bedouin? The bedouin culture and how they live in the desert. How was the old bedouin life in the desert? What kind of animals do the bedouin rear? How do they choose a place to stay in the desert during the summer or the winter? All this and many other things .

    We are looking forward to learn something from the experience of the volunteers. We do not force volunteers to do more than they can afford. We see our volunteers as friends and they can join some of our activities, like spending some time with our friends, playing some games...
    As a volunteer, you can experience the bedouin life and the desert and you can go with us on adventures (like sleeping under the stars or climbing sand dunes) and learn about the nature of the desert. We love fun people!!
