  • This Camel trek is designed to start and finish in Rum Village (option 1).
  • It can also be adjusted to start in Rum Village and finish in the Camp (option 2).
  • Or start in the Camp and finish in Rum Village (option 2).

 

Option 1: Rum Village - Rum Village

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 Camel to enjoy your Camel trek.

This trek visits the most beautiful valley in Wadi Rum (of course this is subjective). This is the valley described in Lawrence of Arabia's book.

At each stop you have the opportunity to hike, scramble, and explore in your own time & your own way:

  1. Lawrence Spring Walk up through rocks and boulders to find the water (and a lovely fig tree to rest under). During spring time you are greeted by the heady smell of herbs. The view across the Wadi from here is legendary! Optional one hour hike
  2. Khazali Canyon This canyon was once used by the local Bedouin to rest in the shade, in the hot summer. You can easily imagine how it would have looked with Bedouin tents, family's resting, drinking tea, and children playing. You can find on the canyon walls many ancient rock inscriptions (see if you can spot the inscriptions of feet, and the Orynx). 15 minute hike
  3. Small Rock Bridge This small rock bridge is easy to climb and rewards with a beautiful view across the valley. 10 minute scramble
  4. To Rum Village The trek ends in Rum Village at approx 4pm for your onward journey.

Option 2: Rum Village - Camp (or vice versa)

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 Camel to enjoy your Camel trek.

This trek visits some of the beautiful valley in Wadi Rum (of course this is subjective). This is the valley described in Lawrence of Arabia's book. 

At each stop you have the opportunity to hike, scramble, and explore in your own time & your own way:

  1. Khazali Canyon This canyon was once used by the local Bedouin to rest in the shade, especially in the hot summer. You can easily imagine how it would have looked with Bedouin tents, family's resting, drinking tea, and children playing. You can find on the canyon walls many ancient rock inscriptions (See if you can spot the inscriptions of feet, and the Orynx). 15 minute hike
  2. El Qatar Spring This natural spring is set up in the mountain, and you can see what the Bedouin have done to catch the water. It is an interesting place. There is a Bedouin Graveyard and a lovely view across the valley where you have been trekking.
  3. To 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 showers (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.
