Short description

Immerse yourself in the captivating beauty of Wadi Rum with our jeep tour that comes with an overnight stay. Our tour covers ten popular sites within the protected area, where we will use a jeep to travel between stops.

Our tour also includes a 30-45 minute hike through a canyon and a traditional Bedouin lunch. We will catch the sunset in Um Sabatah before retiring for the night at our camp or ‘cave’. You will relish a customary Bedouin dinner and have the chance to stargaze before calling it a night. The next morning, after breakfast, we will return to our office in Rum village.

The detailed Wadi Rum jeep tour 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 begin our journey with a visit to Lawrence spring, a natural spring located halfway up a mountain. From this vantage point, you will be able to take in the awe-inspiring views of Wadi Rum. Next, we will venture to the nearby red dune, where you can climb to new heights and soak in even more stunning scenery. You might even feel the rush of excitement as you run down this magnificent sand formation. Our next stop is the renowned Khazali canyon, home to a unique collection of ancient inscriptions and refreshing waterholes. After a short drive, we will arrive at Little bridge, the first of three splendid rock bridges we will visit throughout the day. We will climb the bridge and marvel at the breathtaking views of the surrounding valley before continuing to our final morning destination, the legendary Lawrence House.

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

We will begin our afternoon with a scenic drive to Mushroom rock. After a short stop, we will continue our journey through the yellow desert until we reach the Burdah rock bridge viewpoint. We will take time to appreciate the magnificent rock bridge and surrounding desert landscape there. Afterward, we will make our way to the narrow and surprisingly green Abu Khashaba canyon. You will enjoy a delightful walk through the canyon, which typically takes about 30-45 minutes. As this is a walking-only canyon, your guide will drive around the mountain and meet you on the other side of the canyon. We will then make our way to the Um Fruth rock bridge, where you can challenge yourself with a short and exhilarating scramble to the top. 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.

See what our guests thought of the Wadi Rum jeep tour

We were warmly welcomed and after an initial briefing we set off straight away with our guide. He spent the whole day with us, telling stories about the individual stops and patiently responding to our questions and needs. We spent our lunch break in a shady spot and rested a little while our guide prepared salad, stew and dessert for us. He cooked fresh and over an open fire - incredibly tasty. The spots in the afternoon were also a dream come true. When we arrived at camp in the evening after our last stopover - Sunset view - we immediately got our tent, used the clean bathrooms and finally enjoyed a great evening with a large selection of traditionally prepared fresh food, tea, fresh cookies and live music around the campfire. An amazing experience that we rounded off with a camel ride back to the village the next day. Highly recommended! All the staff are friendly, courteous and always ensure a good atmosphere. We had an amazing time.

I spent New Year’s Eve on this tour and it was incredible. The jeep trip was great, we saw so many views, the lunch prepared for us was delicious (and vegetarian friendly!), the day was planned out to perfection. We watched the final sunset of 2023 on top of a small mountain with a view of the whole desert in front of us. The evening was equally as incredible- we sat around in a group and learned traditional dances. The sky was so clear I could see every star and the milky way. Again, food was delicious! The night wasn’t as cold as I had expected despite me being there in winter- the cabins had 2 huge blankets in them which kept me toasty. The tour finished off with a camel ride in the morning which was perfect. I was a phenomenal time and it was the perfect beginning to 2024!
