Sleep under the stars

 

Camping in Wadi Rum Desert 

At night, when the desert is at its most silent and the stars become a glowing blanket in the clear sky, when the gentle desert breeze blows free of any pollution, you will feel something unique. This is the moment when you will understand the real meaning of the desert for the Bedouin people and why they resist the hardships of such complex landscape to continue living in this magical place. Sleep Under the Stars Tours will give you a realistic experience full of insights about the Bedouin life. During the day, we will show you spectacular views and the major sites in the Wadi Rum desert. Before sunset, while we still have daylight, we will look for the appropriate place to set up camp and spend our night under the stars. Setting the fire is a crucial factor, because we will then proceed to prepare the food and make Bedouin tea. After dinner, we will sit around the fire to exchange a good conversation, tell you about the Bedouin culture, customs, traditions and all about the desert. You are most welcome in our home.
