Bookings and payment
Bookings can easily be done by filling out our booking form here. As for payment, we only accept cash in person in Jordanian Dinars, USD and Euro, however Jordanian Dinar is preferred. IMPORTANT: There are no cash machines/ATMs in Wadi Rum Village, so please bring cash with you.
How to get to camp
With the camp being located deep in the Wadi Rum desert, it is not possible for guests to drive directly to camp. Therefore, we will meet you at the Wadi Rum Village car park (shown below) and then take you to the camp in our 4x4s. There are multiple ways to get to Wadi Rum Village, but it depends on where you are coming from. In most cases, buses are available, but they are not frequent throughout the day, so sometimes you will have to take a taxi (tip: agree on a price with the taxi driver before the trip in order to avoid overpaying). If you are hiring a car, you can drive straight to the village car park, which is free to use. There is a wide range of information available online, however feel free to contact us for assistance.
The weather in Wadi Rum
The different seasons throughout the year provide you with a unique experience in Wadi Rum, but is it important to know what to expect so you can appropriately prepare. For example, August is the warmest month, with average highs of nearly 40°C, whereas is January, temperatures often go below 10°C, especially at night.
What to wear/bring
The Wadi Rum desert is a hash place, obviously, so having suitable clothing can make your time here much more safe and comfortable. Above all else, you will need practical clothing that you aren’t worried about getting a little dirty. In the summer months, light, loose clothing is best, preferably with long sleeves to prevent direct contact from sun on your skin. However, at night it can sometimes be a bit chilly, so it is still recommended you bring a jumper or something of the sort. In winter, thicker clothes are required as it can be much colder than in the summer months. A jacket, long trousers, and extra layers are a good idea, especially for those much colder nights. As for footwear, you will be doing a lot of walking during your time in Wadi Rum, so closed shoes are a must. Flip flops and sandals are suitable for wearing in the camp, but sturdy and comfortable shoes are needed for the activities, such as the 4×4 tours.
