    We spent 2 night and 1 Day with Mafleh and his family, and it was awesome.
    His son’s showed us all the good spot and after we slept under the stars. It was a really good day.
    Recommended at 100%.

    Umm ad Dami is about 40 km (or 45 min drive) away from most Wadi Rum camps. Once there, the hike up takes about 60-90 minutes, and with the same amount or less time going back down. My guide pushed me really hard and we finished the entire hike, up and down, in less than 2 hours.

    No scrambling is needed, just lots of leg muscles work as you navigate through rocks and boulders. On a clear day, you can see all the way out to Saudi Arabia, as well as the observatory center on Jordan's side.

    But because of the distance in driving and also the time needed to hike up and down, a Umm ad Dami outing is usually a half day affair, so plan accordingly.

    I loved every place we went to in Wadi Rum. But we could've skipped this one to save time for others. It's not disappointing, but it wasn't better than some of the other sites.

    It is highly recommended that you take the Wadi Rum desert tour, the best of your Jordan trip, with Wadi Rum Nomads. The meticulous understanding of participants' movements and food preferences was impressive. They are the best in every way, from their thoughtful hearts to helping foreigners in trouble in unfamiliar places. Every facillity and toilet are very clean, so there is no inconvenience to use. Thanks to team Wadi Rum Nomads for creating unforgettable memories.

    Team Wadi Rum Nomads 모두 매우 친절하고 매너있고 재밌는 분들입니다. 고민하실 필요 없이 선택하시라고 말씀드리고싶어요. 사막 한가운데 불편함 없는 시설을 갖추고 있고, 너무 소란스럽지도 적적하지도 않은 적정인원이 참여하여 좋은 분위기 속에서 밤하늘의 별을 감상하실 수 있습니다. 좋은 한국분들이 많이 방문하셔서 추억 많이 만드셨으면 좋겠습니다.

    The best experience in Wadi Rum desert, if you are looking for the best camping you should come here. The host Mahareb is so kind and friendly, the camping is clean, the dinner and the breakfast with typical food were awesome. The camping is really far from others so it' s the perfect location to see the most amazing sunsets! We hope to be back soon!Thank you for everything!

    Amazing jeep tour connected with traditional food and overnight at camp. Very delicous traditional food. Bakhir and his family are very friendly and helpful. If you thinking about jeep tour at Wadi Rum desert let's try this option. You won't be disappointed. If you are from big city I bet you cannot see stars, there you will have great Milky Way view.

    Spectacular experience in the desert. Habis and his staff made our stay in Wadi Rum a day (and a Night) to remember!
    Beatiful location, topnotch sunset and amazing evening together at the camp, drinking tea below the starry sky.
    Strongly recommended

    The perfect experience to enjoy this beautiful natural area. The staff is extremely nice, genuine and available, always with a smile on their face. It’s hard to be unhappy with a company like this. Another reason to choose them is because they actually care for environment and preserving the desert, and they clean the ground from plastic once a while and give you water from refillable 20l tanks. They cook delicious meals for you while touring and they know the best spots to stay to see sunrise/sunset. Definitely choose them!

    The sunset tour was nice but the whole day wild white desert one was unforgettable! The guide, the stops, the walks, the lunch... everything was perfect! And we didn't meet a single soul during the whole day!

    I was taken on a two-day camel trek and open-air camping trip. It was an amazing experience! It wasn't always easy, but unforgettable adventures never are!

    Camp Mahommada is super organised, providing everything you need to feel comfortable in the desert! Comfortable beds, locked tents, comfortable and clean showers and toilets.
    Super location, a communal seating area hidden in the rocks provides protection from the sun, guaranteed water and tea to make relaxing in the desert more enjoyable. Evenings spent with local music and dancing will stay in my memory for a long time. Plus delicious breakfast and dinners with traditional dishes, for which a huge thanks to chef Hani.
    Mohamed is a super person, very helpful and organised. My spontaneous request for a horse ride in the desert was met with immediate action, thus the dream was realised the same day.
    I spent two nights at the camp, one day fully dedicated to a jeep tour in the desert, which will remain in my memory for a long time. Huge spaces, unforgettable views, a desert landscape that was unusual for me, but above all perfectly organised. Mohamed's team know their stuff and the desert very well ;) Ahmad drove us perfectly from point to point and the meals he prepared were exactly what we needed in the desert. Super organisation, friendly atmosphere, wind in our hair, delicious food. The most delicious sunset tea. As a sunset lover, I can add that the place Ahmad took us to was 10/10.
    The high temperatures, the lack of shade, the ever-present sand, there's no denying that being in the desert is not the easiest thing to do, but thanks to Mahommed and his team, mine was a wonderful memory, a beautiful adventure, and a previously unknown desert became a friendly place to which you want to return.
    Highly recommended, especially for more than one night to fully experience the magic of the place.

    My family went (daughter, husband, I) for 4 hour jeep tour and slept one night in beduin camp. I can say about this unforgetable experience only the best things. The organisation of whole experience was excellent, very friendly people with just perfect humor, watching the beautiful desert sunset, very delicious dinner. And yes, amazing night experience under the stars, sitting around the fire with people from all around the world, drinking jordanian ‘whisky’, singing, playing instruments, dancing, listening to the beduin stories. Thanks to the group of special and kind people, who reminded us to enjoy life with simple things. Thanks Feras, Feres, Suleyman, and others for this amazing experience. We will definitely recommend further🙂

    It’s truly the best experience of our stay in Jordan!

    We were lucky to get to know Ali who arranged an amazing adventure on his jeep from our camp to beautiful sights of Wadi Rum!

    He treats you as a brother from the first minute, shows his homeland with passion, explains philosophy and lifestyle of Bedouins, tells you interesting stories of his life, makes the best tea in the world on the sunset and takes care of you every single minute! Ali will teach you how to feel the moment, love the desert and stay positive! He can make everything from nothing!

    He drives very safely, makes stops wherever you want, takes photos of you and he also arranged a wonderful camel ride for us next morning!

    Ali is very kind and a happy man! We are very grateful for our open-hearted conversations!
    I’m sure he can make everyone happy in the dessert and feel safe and relaxed!

    Looking forward to visiting Wadi Rum next time as Bedouins with Ali!

    Ali, thank you for your warmest hospitality!!! 🧡

    We booked to do a 3 day / 3 night hiking and camping trip with Abdu and his nephew Faraj and were disappointed we couldn’t stay any longer! The camp itself has everything you need (private tent, good location, showers and food tent) and the food each day was really good! Faraj took us through the desert for 3 days and was really informative - he really made the trip personal and special for us. We also spent one night camping under the stars and Abdu cooked dinner for us. This is a definite must do! It’s so quiet and peaceful and you would miss out not doing at least one night. On the whole we would absolutely come back and would have stayed longer if we could. Thanks for making the drip so amazing!!
