Welcome to Wadi Rum, Jordan!
A Small Local Bedouin Tour and Accommodation Service
My name is Mehedi Saleh Al-Hewaitaat. I run a small local business in Wadi Rum, where I was lucky enough to be born. We are a team of Bedouin Guides offering tours & accommodation for couples, families, friends & solo travellers to discover the beautiful desert of Wadi Rum.
Our aim is to help you to have a wonderful un-commercial adventure exploring Wadi Rum in the way which suits you best. Our aim is for you to feel comfortable and connected with our desert, us as people and Bedouin Culture. We offer jeep tours, hiking tours, scrambling tours, and camel treks. We provide accommodation at our beautiful, simple Bedouin Camp. For the intrepid, we offer 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. Between us, we have more than 80 years experience!
We offer a wide range of programs to suit every age, interest & fitness level. We cater to your needs from 1-hour visits to 5-day programs and everything in-between.
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 inside 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 a complete escape into the natural environment of Wadi Rum. For those of you, this is a great option.
My administration aims 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.
