Our stay in Wadi Rum – a jeep tour, overnight stay in a Bedouin tent and a rum stargazing experience – made the day truly memorable. Wadi Rum Jeep Tour, overnight in a Bedouin camp or a 3-star hotel near Petra, with full board. Members of the local Bedouin tribe offer short camel rides in Wadi Rum, which can also be included in this Wadi Rum day trip.
While in Wadi Rum, enjoy an exciting jeep safari tour during the cooler hours of the day – the best time to photograph during the magic hour. Our day trips to Wadi Rum cover all of Wadi Rum’s main attractions and turn off the main tourist trail to explore the little-known trails few tourists see. Third, the day was filled to the brim with exciting moments such as exploring Petra, one of the New 7 Wonders of the World, and then Wadi Rum, the famous Lawrence of Arabia Desert. After your first day in Petra, you will head to your Bedouin hotel or camp in nearby Wadi Moussa.
We are Bedouin born here in Rama, members of the proud Huwaitat tribe, descendants of the Nabataeans who built Petra and helped liberate the Arab world over 100 years ago.
For travelers planning a day trip from Aqaba or Wadi Musa, it is best to save time on a jeep tour of the surrounding area. The jeeps, which are commonly used in Ram by small tour operators, are usually driven by young locals and spend no more than 4 hours visiting Ram itself. However, during our tour of Wadi Rum, we saw amazing ancient carvings and spectacular sites such as the Lawrence Spring, Hasali Canyon, Anfisha Inscriptions, Lawrence House, Little Arch, Um Fruit stone bridge and Red Sand Dunes.
If you prefer a jeep, camel, or two legs, you will need a guide to show you around – private cars are not recommended outside of the Wadi Rum Visitor Center. First, it was a day filled with beautiful scenery. We took a 2 hour private tour with a local guide who took us through many of Petra’s key attractions.
Bedouin cooperatives have cars and guides that can be rented every day, and the price of a four-hour tour will set you back around $ 95. Jeep tours are the most efficient way to see everything, and range from two hours to several days of sightseeing. On our 3 day and 2 night tour, we were led by the most amazing guide Nawaf and the rest of the team. Don’t be intimidated by the lack of Western-style housing; enchanting Bedouin hospitality and the majestic beauty of the desert make your stay comfortable and enjoyable.
You can stay at one of their accommodations – they have cabins and large canvas tents – or bring your own camping gear for the setup. We believe we offer the best value for money in Rama for families and couples. If you are short on time and would like to prioritize Wadi Rum, you can reach it directly with pre-arranged private transport, taxi or public bus from the nearby tourist centers in Jordan. Although the word “wadi” in Arabic means “valley”, many believe that “rum” most likely comes from the root of the Aramaic word meaning high or tall.
This is a wonderful and interesting way to explore this beautiful world. We continued our tour until sunset, and he took us to his special place to enjoy it. Our rum sky stargazing guide is very knowledgeable and passionate about what we see. I am very grateful for your flexibility in organizing our Wadi Rum tour.
Visiting this beautiful part of Jordan was one of our best experiences. One of the best moments of our experience in the Space Village was the setting. Then Feras took us to the camp, we drank more tea and a traditional Bedouin dinner (they call it in Zarb). Our family has lived here for centuries and we know and love the desert as an old friend.
