The detailed Wadi Rum jeep tour plan
Day 1 - Meeting point and start time
We will meet at our office in Rum village for the check-in at 9.30 AM. We enjoy Bedouin tea and talk about what we have in mind for the day and night. After finishing our drink, there is time for the final preparations. Afterward, at 10 AM, we leave Rum village to go out into the desert.
Day 1 - In the morning
A short ride brings us to the natural spring called Lawrence spring. You scramble up the mountain site to the spring from where you enjoy the spectacular views of Wadi Rum. We continue our drive and head to the nearby red dune. Here you can climb the dune, enjoy more stunning views, and enjoy running down. Our next stop is Khazali canyon, which is famous for the ancient inscriptions and waterholes. Another short drive brings us to the first rock bridge of the day, Little bridge. We scramble up the bridge and enjoy the marvelous valley views. The last site we visit in the morning is Lawrence house.
Day 1 - Lunchtime
We drive further into the desert to a quiet and picturesque place where we take our lunch break. Your guide prepares a Bedouin lunch for you on the spot. After lunch, there is time to take a rest or walk around to explore the area on your own.
Because of the days being short during wintertime, we continue the tour right after lunch. Likewise, during summertime, we take an extended break to wait for the heat of the day to go.
Day 1 - In the afternoon
We start the afternoon with a beautiful drive to the Mushroom rock. After a short stop, we continue our ride through the yellow desert to the point from where we can see the Burdah rock bridge. Of course, we take time to admire the rock bridge. Then we drive to the surprisingly green and narrow Abu Khashaba canyon. You walk through the canyon. This delightful walk takes about half an hour to 45 minutes. Because you can only walk through this canyon, your guide drives around the mountain and waits for you on the other side of the canyon. Another short drive takes us to the Um Fruth rock bridge. A short but challenging scramble takes you up the bridge. As the sun starts to set, we head to Um Sabatah, to watch the sunset.
Day 1 - The overnight stay
For your overnight stay, we offer three options.
A tent in our camp
Outdoors nearby our camp
Overnight stay in Wadi Rum Base Camp
After the sunset, we bring you to our camp. You get a quick explanation about what is where, how our camp works, and we show you where you will be sleeping (your tent or outside sleeping spot near our camp). All so that you can feel at home right-way.
In the communal tent, we serve you a traditional Bedouin dinner. There is no set program during the evening. You can spend time in the communal tent, or, during warm days, in the outside sitting area. We can tell you about Bedouin culture and music, you can talk with other guests, or you can gaze into the starry night sky and enjoy the peaceful silence of the desert.
Overnight stay 'sleeping under the stars' (bivouac camping)
After the sunset, we go to our ‘cave’ where we stay overnight. While you enjoy the stunning views from our ‘cave’ and see the nightfall (who spots the first star?), your guide cooks you a traditional Bedouin dinner.
You can spend the evening sitting and chatting around the firepit. We can tell you about Bedouin culture and music, you can talk with other guests, or you can gaze into the starry night sky and enjoy the peaceful silence of the desert.
Day 2 - In the morning
It is worth checking when the sun will rise (you can ask us too). Whether you sleep in our camp, near our camp, or in our ‘cave’, the sunrise is something you don’t want to miss. You can ask us for the best places where you can watch the sunrise. At 7 AM, breakfast is ready for you. Afterward, we pack our things and return to Rum village. You arrive at our office between 8 and 8.30 AM. After the check-out, we say goodbye, and you can continue your journey.

What our guests say about the Wadi Rum jeep tour
Unforgettable experience! Stayed with my boyfriend for two nights. Arrived at the camp around 8:00 PM on the first evening, and they cooked incredibly delicious meals for us! I am a bit of a fussy eater but really enjoyed all the great food during our stay. We chose to sleep outside for two nights, which is highly recommended! Of course, we also had a Jeep Tour through the desert, where you pass all kinds of beautiful stops, and you can really enjoy all the beautiful views. Everything was very well arranged. The toilets in the camp were super neat. Nomads, thank you for this beautiful experience!

We booked a 1-day jeep tour with 1 night. The booking was easy, and Bianca sent us a lot of helpful information via email. The tour was a great experience. Our tour guide was the very friendly, kind, funny, entertaining Abdullah, who prepared a very delicious lunch for us. After sunset, we went to the campsite. The camp is beautiful; the toilets and showers were clean. The tents are big and comfortable. Dinner was Zarb, chicken baked in a sand oven, rice, and vegetables. There were salads, hummus, and meatballs. Everything was very tasty. After a rich breakfast, we rode camels back to the village. Many thanks to the whole team; we had a wonderful experience.

One of the best experiences of my life. My friend and I felt really welcomed from the beginning. Bianca helped us with the transportation that wasn’t easy due to the covid situation. In that way, we could enjoy the experience without any bother. The tour itself was magical. Nawaf was our guide and we had so much fun and great chats, he showed us the best places in the desert and explained the Bedouin’s culture. Food was delicious and the experience unforgettable, in particular the night in the cave under the stars. The view of the night sky with the Milky Way and the silence of the desert will remain in our hearts and memories forever. Thanks to all the team at Wadi Rum Nomads to make this experience possible!
