The detailed Wadi Rum camel ride itinerary

Day 1 - Meeting point and start time

We will meet up at our office in Rum village for the check-in at 9.30 AM. We will have some delicious Bedouin tea and chat about our plans for the day and night. Once we finish the check-in, you will have a little bit of time for any final preparations. At 10 AM, we will set out into the stunning desert landscape for a day full of adventures.

Day 1 - In the morning

Before embarking on our desert adventure, you will be given a quick tutorial on how to mount and ride a camel. We will begin our journey from Rum village and make our way to the breathtaking Wadi Um Ishrin. As we venture through the magnificent landscape, we eventually reach the Al-Hasany dune. Here, we will pause our camel ride, allowing you to stretch your legs by climbing atop the dune. You can revel in the panoramic view before going back down. Once we are ready to continue, we will mount our camels, continuing towards Anfishiyyeh – an imposing rock wall adorned with ancient Thamudic and Nabatean engravings and drawings. We will take time to appreciate the incredible history and beauty of this location.

Day 1 - Lunchtime

We venture further into the desert until we reach a tranquil and picturesque spot where we pause for a lunch break. Your camel handler will provide you with a packed lunch. After the meal, you can rest or stroll to explore the surroundings at your own pace.

During the winter season, our daylight hours are limited, which means we will continue our journey right after lunch. Conversely, we have a prolonged break in the summer season to avoid the scorching midday heat.

Day 1 - In the afternoon

Our afternoon begins with the ride to Lawrence house. You can explore the ruins of the house and climb up the rock formation behind it for awesome views of the surrounding landscape. Next up, we will head to Little bridge. You can climb the bridge and marvel at the breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding valley. Finally, we ride to Khazali canyon, home to a unique collection of ancient inscriptions and refreshing waterholes. As today’s adventure comes to an end, we will head to our camp, arriving around 6 PM or, if the sunset is earlier, at sunset time, which you can check on the website timeanddate.com.

Day 1 - The overnight stay

We offer two choices for your overnight accommodation: a tent at our camp or outdoor sleeping near our camp. Visit our accommodations page to find detailed information for each option.

After the sun sets, we will take you to our camp. You will get a brief introduction to the camp’s layout and operations, and we will show you to your tent or the outdoor sleeping area near the camp. 

We serve a traditional Bedouin dinner. After dinner, you are free to do what you please. Usually, our guests and guides sit together, and you can learn about Bedouin life, chat with others, or just marvel at the billions of stars and enjoy the peaceful desert silence.

Day 2 - In the morning

Make sure not to miss the chance to witness the magnificent sunrise. Feel free to inquire about places to view the sunrise and its timings. We are always happy to assist you.

Breakfast is served at 7 AM, after which we pack up and head back to Rum village. You will arrive at our office between 8 and 8.30 AM for check-out. We bid you farewell and wish you a safe journey ahead.

What our guests say about the Wadi Rum camel ride

An exceptional and timeless moment. A day and night tour of Wadi Rum is an experience you won't find anywhere else. Moreover "Wadi Rum Nomads" is an agency that I recommend, the guides are friendly, welcoming, you can trust. I recommend 100%!

Best “staff” you’ll ever meet! Very beautiful human beings with whom you can sit and talk for hours or just share a nice silence around the fire (with a cup of tasty sweet tea). I spent there two nights and one day on a camel (be prepared to have a back or leg ache after that) and enjoyed every second of it. I can’t wait to come back there and spend a whole week there! Probably one of the most wholesome and peaceful experiences I’ve ever had.
