    Description

    Hey! I am Majed.
    I'm a bedouin and I live in the beautiful desert of Wadi Rum village in Jordan.
    I was born and grew up in Wadi Rum desert where I also live with my family
    I'm already working here for a long time now as a tour guide in Wadi Rum, so you can enjoy with us our culture and lifestyle

    The desert of Wadi Rum is a protected area and we have a camp in the desert for tourists. The landscape is breathtaking and beautiful.
    We offer Jeep tours, camel rides, hiking and of course overnight stay in the desert.

    You can decide to sleep under a bedouin tent in a camp, or outside in the moonlight, you can decide if you prefere to visit Wadi Rum by jeep or by feet, I will adapt my tour to everyone, because each one has his own rythm, each one have different wishes

    I am sure you'll spend an unforgetable moment with us in our desert of wadi rum.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The Wadi Rum village is populated by bedouin from the Alzalabeh tribe which have lived in this area for generations.Many of the villagers speak English as we have many tourists that visit our desert, and everyone is friendly and easy to talk to. Its a great chance to improve your Arabic as we often get together and share meals and tea. There is no comparison to living in the desert like a bedouin and you are sure to leave with a wonderful memorable experience
