  • Description

    Description

    This is Belal from Petra of Jordan. I have my own business and I'm looking for new volunteers working with us , it will be lovely experience as usual. Eight years ago I began building this desert camp by hand and it is now a well established site for many tourists from all parts of world. Also many local people come just to relax, smoke sheesha and get away from the city atmosphere. I am still working on my English so your experience here will be a full cross cultural experience. Their is a decent size functionable kitchen where we prepare all the meals for our guests and share the Bedouin lifestyle. Campfires, tea and local music. We happen to have the perfect view to watch the local goat herders pass by.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    They can learn the Arabic language and a lot of things from our culture, local experienice, camps, arabic cooking, caving in little petra, hiking , business, tourist trip, and many other interesting things to do. I can also show you around different places to see in Wadi Musa. my home and family to exchange culture, experience, jordanian food, and making a dinner party as i always do. Most of the activities outside of the camp are financially dependent upon you but of course when there are group campouts you are very welcome.
