The detailed Wadi Rum desert tour Wadi Sabet 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
We will take a scenic jeep ride from our office to Um Mugur, passing through the beautiful red desert. Keep your camera ready to capture the stunning views. In the Um Mugur area, you will enjoy a delightful walk and scramble through a yellow sand canyon, which typically takes about 30-45 minutes. This canyon offers the opportunity to see various types of desert vegetation. As this is a walking-only canyon, your guide will drive around the mountain and meet you on the other side of the canyon. Afterward, we will continue our journey to Wadi Nuqra, where you can enjoy another hike. Your guide will drive to the end of the wadi and wait for you there. Enjoy climbing the dune, discovering the beauty of this part of our stunning desert, and marveling at the breathtaking scenery before we head toward Wadi Sabet.
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 guide prepares a freshly made Bedouin lunch right before our eyes. 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
In the afternoon, we set out on a scenic drive to one of the most stunning viewpoints in Wadi Sabet. As we walk to a ridge, we discover old Bedouin storage places and take in the exquisite views over the wadi. Then we will head to Um Ghdah, where you can stretch your legs and embark on a hike through the canyon. While you traverse the canyon, your guide will drive to the end to wait for you there. Next, we will continue to Double bridge and marvel at its beauty. As the sun begins to set, we will make our way to Um Sabbath to witness the breathtaking sunset.
Day 1 - The overnight stay
We offer three choices for your overnight accommodation: a tent at our camp, outdoor sleeping near our camp, or outdoor sleeping at our ‘cave’. Visit our accommodations page to find detailed information for each option.
After the sun sets, we will take you to our camp or ‘cave’. At the campsite, 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. At the ‘cave’, everything is clear and easy to understand.
At both the camp and ‘cave’, 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
Whether you are staying at our campsite or at our ‘cave’, witnessing the sunrise is truly a remarkable experience. 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.
