  • Description


    I am Hussein Hamd, a Bedouin born and raised in the desert of Wadi Rum, I have a 20 tent camp about 10 min south of the Wadi Rum Village and we welcome all volunteer to join our camp.

    Our camp is situated inside Wadi Rum’s Protected Area, only 6 km from the Wadi Rum Village and surrounded by magnificent sandstone formations. This is the land where Lawrence Arabia once fought with Bedouins, against the Ottoman Empire. You can walk around and let your imagination run free, or simply find yourselves the perfect panorama view.

    Besides offering accommodation for our guests we also offer, Desert Safari tour, Camel Rides and hiking tours, Rock climbing and hot air balloon. You may join some of them time to time.
