  • Description

    Description

    Hello everybody! My name is Deifallah, I'm a bedouin and I run a camp in the Wadi Rum desert with some friends. Our camp is situated in the middle of Wadi Rum. The camp offers a great experience for everybody who wants to spend some time in this picturesque desert. We organize a lot of activities and love spending time with tourists as they always share and teach us something new about their culture.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    First, since you'll be living in the camp with us, you'll get a look into bedouin culture, you'll experience our customs and traditions. Plus, you'll share meals with us, so if you want we can teach you some traditional Bedouin recipes and you can teach us yours. Of course, joining our camp is also a great opportunity to improve or learn Arabic, and we'll be glad to learn about your culture as well!
    The volunteer will meet many tourists and will be able to share some quality time with them, sharing and learning from their culture.
    Next to that, you can go for beautiful hikes and climbs up the mountains and you'll have a good chance to see (baby!) camels.
    Last but not least, the desert offers an amazing view right when you wake up and open your tent, you can wake up early to see the sunrise and enjoy the sunset in the afternoon; also, looking at the starry sky at night is absolutely unmissable.

  • Help

    Help

    I mostly need help with Internet. The volunteer will help managing the official website of the camp and advertising on social media.
    Secondly, we need help wth the tourists, which means welcoming them when they arrive, showing the rooms, telling them the story of our camp and making them have a great time. For this reason, the volunteer will help us organising activities, checking the bookings, etc.
    We're always trying to make the camp better and to offer the tourist a great experience, so feel free to share new ideas and different opinions.
