The Evening Part of our Tour (Optional)
For some guests, the experience will end here with a return back to the Wadi Rum Rest House.
However, if you choose to spend the night with us, we will continue our trip by driving you to our traditional Bedouin Cave or Camp (can be chosen during checkout) located inside the protected area in the middle of the desert far away from any noise or light pollution.
There we will light a warm fire and offer you some Bedouin tea before preparing dinner. You will have time to wash up and settle into your tent before dinner is served. The tents are made of a special fabric that will shield you from the cold of the desert during the night. Furthermore, we will provide you with all the necessary equipment, such as mattresses, warm blankets, and pillows, to ensure a safe and comfortable night’s stay in the desert.
Usually, every night we gather around the fire, play Bedouin music, dance, and exchange stories about the Wadi Rum desert and Bedouin culture. Moreover, if you feel like it, you can go for a nighttime walk in the desert under our guidance and witness the amazing starry night sky.
Finally, the next day, after breakfast, we will take you back to the Wadi Rum Rest House where our adventure started in order to continue your journey.
