Welcome to Wadi Rum, Jordan!
A Small Local Bedouin Tour and Accommodation Service
My name is Mehedi Saleh Al-Hewaitaat and I run a small Bedouin Guide, Tours & Accommodation business for couples, families, friends & solo travellers to visit and discover the beautiful desert of Wadi Rum, where I was lucky enough to be born.
Our aim is to help you to have a wonderful un-commercial adventure exploring Wadi Rum in the way that suits you best. For you to feel comfortable and connected with our desert, us as people and our Bedouin Culture! We offer Jeep Tours, Hiking Tours, Scrambling Tours, Camel Treks, a beautiful and simple Bedouin Camp to stay in, and Bivouac Camping - sleeping under the stars.
I work together with a small group of very experienced Bedouin guides, who all have their own strengths and skills. We are family (brothers, cousins) &/or from the same tribe &/or friends. Together we have been guiding tourists as Bedouin Directions since 2008. All of us have worked with tourists for many years before this time, and between us we have more than 60 years experience!
We offer a wide range of programs to suit every age, interest & fitness level. We can cater to your needs from 1 hour visits to 5 day programs or more! I also specialise in writing Tailored Tours for people who want to do something different!
We have built a simple Bedouin Camp in an exciting location in the desert. It is a bit different to the usual Camps in Wadi Rum! A secret hideaway in a unique canyon in the beautiful white desert. We aim to strike a balance between a Camp that will be comfortable for our guests (you!) and experiencing a taste of Bedouin life.
We also offer Bivouac Camping in the desert ('Camping under the stars'). Many people enjoy completely escaping into the natural environment of Wad Rum, and for them this is a great option.
My administration aim to respond to all e-mail & contact form enquiries, promptly, professionally, clearly, in good English!
September 2014: Canadian filmmaker Niobe Thompson worked with Bedouin Directions to shoot sequences for the three-part series The Great Human Odyssey. This blue-chip documentary explores the human journey out of Africa, and was filmed in 17 countries across 5 continents over the course of two years. It will broadcast around the world in 2015 and 2016, including on Canada’s CBC, PBS NOVA in the USA and Servus in Germany and Austria.
