For Bedouin the camel is Ata Allah, the gift of God. These ‘ships of the desert’ allowed the Bedouin to cover long distances in the hash desert environment. They are useful in everyday life as they provide the Bedouin with milk, wool and meat. Nowadays most Bedouin swapped their camels for a jeeps.
A camel ride is one of the best ways to experience Wadi Rum desert like a Bedouin. During this 1 day ride you visit sites close to Rum village. At lunch time you enjoy a Bedouin lunch and rest in the shade.
Please note that children under the age of 7 cannot take part in a full day camel ride.
We meet each other in the Rest House in Rum village between 8.30 and 9 AM. Here we enjoy a Bedouin tea. We take time to relax and talk about what we have in mind for today. After finishing our tea we go to meet our camels.
First you get an instruction on how to mount and ride a camel. After that we depart Rum village and ride to Wadi Um Ishrin. We ride through this beautiful canyon and continue to the nearby red sand dune. Here we take a break. You can climb the sand dunes and enjoy running down. We mount our camels to ride to the big rock wall called Anfishiyyeh. We make a stop to see the inscriptions.
We ride to a nice, quiet and shady place where we take a few hours break. We prepare a Bedouin lunch for you. After we finish our lunch there is time to take a rest or walk around to explore the area on your own.
