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.
