Rum Planet Camp
Your desert home away from home

Is a small, family-run traditional Bedouin camp in the heart of the Wadi Rum desert (near the Seven Pillars of Wisdom mountain). Started by three Bedouin friends – Ahmad, Falah, and Hasan – the camp is our passion project and an extension of our home. 

From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave, you will feel like you are part of our family. We have 15 Bedouin-style, comfortable tents and two tent options: 1. in-tent bathroom and shower and 2. bathroom and shower outside.

Our programs

Our staff and colleagues will look after you the whole time you’re here. Get immersed in our Bedouin culture with traditional Bedouin meals cooked for you every day (you won’t want to miss the experience of Zerb, the Bedouin barbeque cooked underground), sharing stories around the fire or playing the Bedouin game of Sejah.

While you’re here, enjoy the natural beauty of Wadi Rum with a sunrise camel ride into the dunes, explore Wadi Rum on a 4×4 jeep safari tour, or count the stars under the bottomless desert sky.

Desert info

The Mars-like desert of Wadi Rum is unlike any other desert on Earth.

Sometimes called ‘the Valley of the Moon’, this desert was formed millennia ago as an ancient sea floor. Over the centuries, the sea eroded into the whimsical landscape of sandstone and granite mountain formations spread over 720 square kilometers of red, yellow, and white sand dunes. To experience the Wadi Rum is to get close to the primordial way of life when man and nature existed as one.

The desert is a hostile, arid environment but the Bedouins have made it their home for centuries. We love and respect this environment and we hope you will too.

During the summers, the desert gets hot with average temperatures ranging from 30-40C, cooling off at night with a gentle breeze. In winters, the desert has a pleasant temperature of 20-25C, cooling considerably at night (so don’t forget to pack warm clothes). We also provide warm blankets in each of the tents.

What to pack: sunscreen, comfortable clothing and scarves in the summer, warm clothing like a jacket or a wind-breaker and socks in the winter. Water and soft drinks are available at the camp.
