We are a big bedouin family living in Wadi Rum, we have a campsite in the desert .
We help visitors from all around the world when they visit Wadi Rum, and we do our best to show them the wonders of the desert. We arrange camel tours, Jeep tours and hiking tours for the visitors.
We need volunteers to help us with things around computer, mobile phones, accounts, E-Mails, SEO etc...
We also need little help with tourists in the desert.
We provide accommodation (both,male and female) in our house in Wadi Rum village and we will also provide meals for the volunteer.
The volunteer can also go to sleep with our bedouin family in the desert during our stay in the desert .
What else .:
There are a lot of activities the volunteers can do in their free time at our place. They can do some hiking, they can go to see Shalala Spring 40m from our house or Nabatean Temple 20 m , also they can go to Lawrence Spring, which is one hour away. We have incredible sand dunes and canyons in the desert, too.
So you have a lot to discover !!!
For the transport:
There's a bus from Aqaba to Wadi Rum every day. Just on fridays there are no buses. the bus starts around 12pm.
From Petra to Wadi Rum there's a bus every day at 6 am.
If you come from Amman, you can take the bus to Aqaba. After that you can take the bus or a taxi to Wadi Rum.
Also you can arrange taxis any time to come to Wadi Rum .
Cultural exchange and learning opportunities:
The travellers can learn many things, they can learn a lot about the bedouin live. Who are the bedouin? The bedouin culture and how they live in the desert. How was the old bedouin life in the desert? What kind of animals the bedouin rears? How do they choose a place to stay in the desert during the summer or the winter? also author things .
We are looking forward to learn something from the experience of the volunteers. We do not force volunteers to do more than the can afford. We see our volunteers as friends and they can join some of our activities, like spending some time with our friends, playing some games...
As a volunteer, you can experience the bedouin life and the desert and you can go with us on adventures (like sleeping under the stars or climbing sand dunes) and learn about the nature of the desert. We love people fun!!
