About Us

This is a licensed Bedouin Tour Operation in Wadi Rum. We organise a range of tours and expeditions for people visiting the protected area. We try to give people the best possible experience of Wadi Rum and ensure they see all of its natural beauty.

We care about our community and our environment. We provide excellent working conditions for our volunteers and employees and make every effort to look after and preserve our environment. We value cultural exchange and enjoy teaching foreigners about the local history and ways of the Bedouin people. We also like to learn about the values and philosophies of our guests.

Our tours give visitors an appreciation of nature and an insight into Bedouin life. All overnight tours are accompanied by traditional Bedouin cooking and there is often traditional storytelling, music, singing and dancing.

We use reliable jeeps, healthy camels and have a high quality permanent campsite. The camp is set against a humbling cliff face and has comfortable sleeping arrangements with tents, mattresses, blankets and pillows. We also have running water, a shower and sit-down toilets. When sleeping out under the stars on expeditions we use the best equipment.
