    Description

    Hey guys!

    I am Ahmed, a Bedouin guy living and working in Wadi Rum. I run a desert camp with a friend for already 5 years.

    The Wadi Rum desert is an awesome desert of 700 square kilometers where you can discover many landscapes and rock formations.
    Tourists come from all over the world to discover it through jeep tours, camel riding, hiking and climbing.

    Our camp is set in the desert and you can enjoy astonishing and peaceful landscapes and also experience sleeping outside under the stars, around a campfire and bedouin songs.

    I am fond of travelling and discovering new people and cultures. I have travelled in many countries in the world using Couchsurfing and Workaway

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will benefit everything the tourists benefit, but also you are going to live with us and share our lives, go climbing, swim when we have free time.

    The workawayer will experience the life with us and we can teach some arabic and share our bedouin culture such as traditions and cuisine. We are also expecting the workawayer to share his culture with us. Any talent is welcomed! If you play guitar bring your guitar, if you sing you can sing. We would be pleased to share cultures and happiness!
