“Ultimate Bedouin Wadi Rum Experience with fabulous Saleh Mosa family hosts.”
Reviewed 18 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We lived in Jordan for two years and spent many weekends with the wonderful Saleh and his family (Alia, Saleh's wife and most magnificent cook with an incredible smile and generosity of spirit to match, and Atik, Saleh's brother and a most amusing and magnificent guide) at Saleh's camp in the Wadi Rum.

We love it, as have all our guests, and would recommend it to everyone. Saleh is the best Bedouin host we could ever know and his hospitality is unsurpassed in our experience.

The only thing left to say is that I can't wait to go back, which is the highest recommendation I can give!

“Wadi Rum Magical Desert Adventure”
Reviewed 16 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013
1
person found this review helpful

Our family of four with two well-traveled teenage daughters (ages 16 & 19) ventured through Wadi Rum for two days and one night in August 2013. Saleh and his wife Alia, mother and two younger children Mohammad and Sarar, shared their genuine Bedouin hospitality from greeting us at their home in Rum Village with tea, chatting about our visit to Jordan, to help us plan our jeep tour though Wadi Rum. We were surprised to discover the ease of riding a camel to camp compared to the horses and donkey rides of Petra. This late afternoon ride among the shadow of Jebel Rum introduced us to beautiful Wadi Rum vistas and a desert pace of life. We marveled at the orange hues of the desert sunset and the soft morning sunlight blanketing the desert floor from the bluffs above Saleh’s Jebal Khazali campsite. Once inside our secured tent compound, we optioned to sleep outside on mats and mattresses while gazing at the Milky Way and sea of stars dancing above our heads in the midnight skies, as our daughters slept inside the tent. Eleven shooting stars streaked across the galaxy night. Our daughters still rave about the dinner (best meal in Jordan!!) prepared at the camp by Alia and her post dinner singing and drumming entertainment.

In the morning a first stop on our jeep tour was a thrilling sand boarding ride down the red desert dunes. Later, after a stop to see Lawrence’s House, we experienced cliff jumping and captured our free fall action photos with amazing desert backgrounds. Our footing and balance was tested as we scrambled up and down the rock face to walk across the majestic Umm Fruth Rock Bridge.

Saleh customized our jeep tour to those sites we selected and his brother Attiyak drove us though the desert and explained each destination. Socializing with Saleh and his warm Bedouin family is an intimate and unique experience, leaving our family with everlasting Wadi Rum memories of a magical desert adventure.

We recommend this camp to travelers who wish to experience a Bedouin family, the traditional desert culture of warm hospitality and the adventures of Wadi Rum.

“An unforgettable experience!”
Reviewed 9 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We spent 2 nights in Wadi Rum with Saleh and his lovely family. We felt welcome the moment we stepped out of the car. The scenery is breath-taking and we chose to get to the camp by camel (extra cost but very reasonable). The itinerary was perfect for the amount of time we had and for our teenage sons (sand boarding was a highlight for them!) The food prepared by Saleh's wife in the evenings was delicious and there was plenty of it. The sunsets against the red sand were unforgettable. Thank you Saleh and Alia.

“Bedouin hospitality in a spectacular part of Creation”
Reviewed 29 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Our time with Saleh & the Musa family was definitely a highlight of our trip to Jordan.
Wadi Rum is a 'must see' - “vast, echoing and God-like..." (T.E. Lawrence)
Excellent to enjoy nature with warm Bedouin hospitality...we certainly enjoyed the camp, the fire, a stunning sunset, and the company of the Musa's and the other tourists. Alia's 'maklooba' was way better than a five star hotel's 'maklooba' that we ate a few days later. Atiyek is a good guide and very chatty. Saleh went an extra mile - my wife left her mobile in the camp, and he kindly & effectively organised for it to be delivered to Petra with the help of a (random) taxi driver!

Plenty of information on the website - http://wadirumtours.com/wadi-rum-tours-about-us.html

“wadirumtours.com: the best choice to visit wadi rum”
Reviewed 4 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

You stay with a family with a bedouin history. Saleh is the first generation that setteled themselves in the city but they carry the real history with them. From the beginning to the end: service was perfect. We took a taxi from Petra to the visitor centre of wadi rum and they pick you up. Even at the end, he arrange for you a good taxidriver at a good price.
His wife Alia makes delicious food and is so friendly and helpfull. Saleh shows you everything you have to see in the desert, with respect for nature and history. You stay in a very quiet and clean camp in the desert, it's like in the middle of nowhere.
You must visit this while you're in Jordania. This is a great experience.

“Best experience in Wadi Rum, ever!”
Reviewed 22 March 2013 for a stay in February 2013

I have come to Wadi Rum many times but the visit my family and I made with Saleh and his family was by far the best I have ever done. Everything was perfect, from the friendly and very personal welcome by Saleh and his wife to the tour itself which took us to several places that I have never seen before and gave our son his first skiing experience. Exciting but very pleasant at the same time. Then, I did not expect to have the best makloubeh ever out in the desert... We went as a family but since Saleh and team managed to personalise our stay completely according to what we wanted, I would recommend this to anyone. We will definitely return ourselves!
