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.

Bedouin Directions Camp is a wonderful place to base yourself to spend some time and just enjoy being in nature. The experience of exploring the desert alone is quite different to the experience when you explore with a guide or by Jeep.
We welcome people who want to join us for a longer stay to "Hang Out" at the camp to do some independent walking.

Today I invite you to daydream for a few minutes and read about Frances's memories of her first impression of Wadi Rum:
My eyes were still closed tight, although my ears were open and I could hear the sounds of people not too far away from me, talking. The sounds were foreign, but somehow beautiful, musical, rhythmic. The sound was Arabic being spoken, not harsh at all like you are led to believe....
A beautiful selection of photographs, taken by one of our guests, posted with comments from Bedouin Directions.
Thank you to all the people that have already responded to my post yesterday and written to my e-mail address with your memories of Wadi Rum... keep them coming... Insha'Allah.

I feel bad! This is one question I haven't been asked before and have not previously addressed : D.
