    Description

    Hi and welcome my friends!

    I am Khalid, 32 years old and I run a Bedouin camp in the Wadi Rum desert since 2019. We belong to a Bedouin family from Wadi Rum where our ancestors lived for centuries. We enjoy living in the desert and would like to invite you to our homeland and share this experience with you.

    My camp is located in a peaceful and quiet corner of the Wadi Rum protected area, far from the light pollution of the village so we have an amazing night sky. There are 12 tents in the camp and a big dining tent in the middle where you can enjoy the breeze from the mountains and the incredible view of open desert. I have a local employee who helps me with organizing the camp, cleaning the tents and cooking.
