Must see · World heritage site · Desert · Nature / Park
A vast natural valley dotted with sandstone and granite cliffs, Wadi Rum Protected Area presents a dramatic picture of desert beauty, accessible to visitors for tours and activities. The area is inhabited by Bedouin tribes, some of which still sleep in traditional goat-hair tents. The natives also run much of the local eco-tourism economy--research ahead to book a hiking, camelback, or jeep tour with them. Experienced climbers may also be interested in checking out rock-climbing options in the wadi.

  • We booked a safari trip from Memories Aicha luxury camp and it was worth it. Climbing the sand dunes, driving through giant mountains, admiring the sunset; everything id amzing and relaxing.  more »
  • One of the most beautiful places I;ve ever been to. The tours / excursion have been standardized a lot and everybody sees roughly the same points, but scale of tourism is still relatively modest...  more »

  • A must do trip at least once in a lifetime. One has to hike the mountain next to the camp. The panorama cannot be described because the English dictionary is limited when trying to explain such a remarkable experience. I'll try my best though. The experience was subliminal, astounding, and breathtaking. أجمل من قطعة أرض على المريخ.
  • Amazing camp to stay for the night. The guide and the host is really kind and welcoming. We did the desert tour with this camp and it was really fantastic. I recommend totally. They made a homemade food in bedouin style and its incredible to learn this culture. Go and enjoy
