Our guide, Mosa really did everything he possibly could to make this a once in a lifetime tour for us! he took me and my friends into the desert to the best mountains to go scrambling and to get the best views of this sublime landscape! he also brought us to his family's camp where they prepared 'mensaf' , a traditional Bedouin dish that was absolutely delicious!! We had a tent booked but we ended up sleeping outside it because we will never again have an opportunity to see the stars like we did that night. I would recommend this tour, and this tour guide to my closest friends and family because i know they would come back with a smile from ear to ear!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Wadi Rum Galaxy Camp is located inside the Wadi Rum protected area, 18km from the Wadi Rum Visitor Center. The campsite is very peaceful and secluded, allowing you to relax and experience the tranquility of the desert. You will have the opportunity to wander through the surrounding desert, taking beautiful photos and gazing up at the stars in the night. With no artificial light, you will have a view of the night sky unlike any that you've ever seen. All the tents are fully furnished with the sleeping equipment you will need (mattresses, sheets, pillows, blankets, etc.), and we also have private showers and western toilets for your convenience. When dinner is ready, we all eat together and enjoy one of the traditional Bedouin dishes; either Mansaff which is the usual dish we offer to our visitors and guests at Bedouin weddings, or Zarb which is cooked under the sand. Fully satisfied, we will enjoy more tea around the campfire and talk until you retire to your private tents for a full night's rest. The meals are cooked by a Bedouin cook. A vegetarian diet is available upon request. We will do our best to meet your needs.
