Traditional Bedouin Experience Tour

Traditional Bedouin Experience Tour: 1 day- 1 night

We will begin our tour by jeep from Wadi Rum Resthouse at 10.30 am to the Red Sand Dunes area, where you can hike on the soft sand. We will then continue by jeep to the Anfashieh inscriptions. These are wonderful samples for pre-islamic Nabatean and Thamudic rock inscriptions and are thousands of years old.

We will continue by jeep to Lawrence’s House, which is reportedly the accommodation used by Lawrence of Arabia. Near this area we will stop for lunch and you will have the chance to help collect the wood for the fire with your Bedouin guide. Lunch and Bedouin tea will be prepared on the fire.

After lunch we will go on by jeep to the beautiful Fig Valley, where you will do a short walk between 20 to 30 minutes. From there we will continue by jeep to the Um Frouth rock bridge. To climb this spectacular formation you just need to do a 5 minute hike up the rocks.

To experience real Bedouin life you must enjoy the well-known hospitality of the Bedouins. You will have the chance to be invited by members of our family, which are still continuing a nomadic life-style living with their flock, to their home. In their traditional goat hair tents Bedouin tea will be served for you. The goat hair tents shrink in winter, allowing the heat to remain in the tent, expanding in summer to provide natural ventilation.

From there we will drive you to a scenic spot where you can walk for to the Sunset Point where you can enjoy a breathtaking desert sunset.

After this we will head to our sleeping place in a natural cave where we will light a fire. We will cook our dinner there, tell stories about Bedouin life, and sing Bedouin songs. If weather is permitting you can opt alternatively for a night under the starry sky.

On the morning of the second day, we will have breakfast and travel by jeep back to Rum village.
