Attention Travellers - Jordan Clocks Go Back Soon - October 2018

So unless the government decides last minute not to change them (as they did in 2015ish) the clocks should go back by one hour during the night on the 25th October for daylight saving.

This means from the 26th October sunset will be close to 5 pm. At the moment, sunset is still around 6 pm.

Don’t get caught out, especially if you are planning to catch the early morning Petra bus on the 26th October or you have flights on the 26th.

Bedouin Directions Receives TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence - 2018

Thank you to all our guests who took the time to write reviews for us on TripAdvisor. Without your continued support, kind words, and valuable time we wouldn’t have received the certificate of excellence from TripAdvisor once again. We have now received the certificate of excellence for 8 years in a row!

If anyone didn’t write their review yet and you have some time we are always grateful to receive them! Hint hint ; P.

New Tents at our Bedouin Camp

I’m happy to announce Bedouin Directions have replaced our sleeping tents at our Bedouin camp over the summer (2018). We are hoping to have more, better pictures to share with you in November. For now we have a couple of pics to give you a glimpse!

The new benefits of the tents are:

  • Every tent is standalone and 100% private

  • We have two tents now which can sleep up to 6/7 people which will be good for groups of friends and large families (previously our biggest room could only sleep 5)

  • All the tents are more spacious

  • All the tents (except the two with rounded roofs) have windows

  • All the tents are raised from the floor which means less sand and dust inside and more creepy crawlies outside : D. Yay.

We hope you all like the changes and Insha’Allah see you soon!

 The largest tent on the left of the picture is the social tent where we hang out and serve dinner. The small building at the top of the picture (which looks like a tent from the outside) is the bathrooms. The 8 tents in the foreground are our new sleeping tents.

Have a lovely day!

Hello everyone,

Sorry for a long time we didn't post. We have been too busy (al-hamdulilah) and then focused on Ramadan.

I'm sure you had plenty of other notifications from other pages and websites to keep you busy! ; D

We are closed today for the holiday and open again tomorrow for our guests.

Insha'Allah see you all soon!
