We sleep on beds in one long goat hair tent which is divided by blankets into twin share “rooms” for privacy. A bottom sheet and blanket is provided but most people prefer to bring along a travel sleep sheet. Bathroom facilities are shared and unisex and located around 20 metres from the camp. Although the way is lit by lanterns, it is a good idea to have a torch/flashlight with you . There is a large, central tent which is traditionally decorated and perfect for relaxing or escaping the cold nights in winter. Our dinner is cooked in traditional fashion, with the meat and vegetables being cooked under the ground. Soft drinks and water are available for purchase. Please note, due to religious reasons, no alcohol is permitted at the camp. We spend the evening sitting under the stars, around the fire, listening to stories from our Bedouin hosts. If we are really lucky they may bring the drums out. Approximate travel time: Amman to Wadi Rum, 5 hours.
