Day One

Once you have arrived in Wadi Rum, we will get organised and I will introduce you to your guide for the day. When you are ready you will head into the desert by Jeep towards Um Ad Dami.

Um Ad Dami, at more than 1,800 metres is the highest peak in Jordan, offering you a whole new perspective of the desert from its summit. 

According to your ability hiking to the summit and back to the desert floor takes approximately two - three hours.  After which you can relax and enjoy some lunch.

We then lead you on a leisurely afternoon walk (using the Jeep at times, walking as much as you want to on the day) through the beautiful white desert visiting a Bedouin Spring (how the Bedouin catch the rainwater), a Small Natural Rock bridge, which is easy to climb, and then you will finish at the Camp to spend the night in the desert. Or you can return to Rum Village for your onward journey.

At the Camp: Enjoy a delicious Bedouin dinner, the stars and the night in the desert. In the Camp we have Bedouin tents (private), with mattresses and blankets. We have toilets (two Western) and two shower's (cold water/ sun warmed). We have a cosy main tent with a fire for sitting and relaxing in. The Camp is in the white desert in a unique and beautiful location, secluded and away from any other tourist camps.
