**SHOWN PRICES ARE PER PERSON PER NIGHT IN THE DESERT CAMP INCLUDING BREAKFAST AND DINNER. When more then two pax, the transportation between the village and the desert camp is included as well.
The Bedouin’s transformation from nomadic to sedentary to participants in the local tourism trade highlights their intrinsic aptitude to adapt to the ever-changing world around them. Known for their hospitality, they provide their guests with a unique opportunity to experience the traditions and customs of a way of life that is quickly changing. It is this mixing of the old with the new that makes the Wadi Rum Protected Area a vacation destination like no other.
My name is Ali Hamad and I belong to the Al-Zalabiah Bedouin Tribe. Me and my brothers call the desert our home and spend our early years playing in and exploring the desert.
The camp's name is Sunrise, because you can see the sunrise from it in the early morning. And not only sunrise, due to the location in the middle of the desert it is the perfect location for sunset as well. Between a small rocky mountain and a red sanddune, down the Jabal Khazali, on it's north side, it's location was also chosen for the main shootings of the famous Lawrence of Arabia movie.
Isolated from other camps, it offers a great view on jebels Rum and Um Ushrin, and is 10 minutes walk from the Siq of Khazali, which you can visit in the morning, when it's still quiet.
The camp consists of a large communal tent with adjoining cave to sit around the fire and eat, another large tent for sleeping, plus five small tents from two to four people each, and there is also a kitchen and a bathroom.
In the morning there is a included breakfast and in the evening me and my wife provide hot meals consist of fresh vegetables, rice and barbecue. There is a Bedouin-style meal (Al-Zarb) where we put the food (chicken or meat and potatoes and onions) inside a hole in the ground and then cover it for an hour and a half.
When wished, I can arrange jeep-tours, camel- & horse riding, hiking and climbing trips. I am well experienced as a trekking guide. You can choose to stay the night in the camp or sleep outside.
When you're my guest you can witness special local events, such as celebrations and weddings to get a even more thorough understanding of Bedouin Life.
The shown price is the price per person for groups consisting of 2+ persons. For single travelers we unfortunately have to charge an additional fee. Contact for more information about prices.
