Tour description Wadi Rum desert tour Jabal Al-Hash

The 2-days and 2-nights Wadi Rum desert tour Jabal Al-Hash is for those travelers who love nature and landscapes, want to experience the desert, and get the ‘Bedouin vibe’.

The first day we go on a jeep tour to visit some of the most famous sites in the protected area. All in all, it is an active day full of variety. For the overnight stay, you can opt for our camp, Wadi Rum Base Camp, or the more adventurous bivouac camping (sleeping outside).

The second day we slow down our pace so that we have more time to appreciate and take in the magnificence of Wadi Rum and feel and enjoy the freedom of living in the moment without obligations. We drive to the outer area of Wadi Rum to hike and scramble Jabal Al-Hash. In the afternoon, we go on a jeep tour to see more of the fantastic landscape. And we make stops at a Bedouin dam, a rock bridge, and Cow rock. After enjoying the sunset, we head to Wadi Rum Base camp for your second night under the stars.

The detailed Wadi Rum desert tour Jabal Al-Hash 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 quickly, we head to the Um Sabatah area, to watch the sunset.

Day 1 - The overnight stay

For your first overnight stay, we offer three options.

Sleeping in a tent in our camp
Wadi Rum Base Camp

If you prefer a comfortable night in a bed, our cozy camp is the place for you. Check out our camp page to read more about our home in the desert.

Sleeping outdoors near
Wadi Rum Base Camp

Are you looking for an comfortable but also unique overnight stay? Have the comfort of the camp and sleep under the billions of stars by booking this option.

Sleeping under the stars
(bivouac camping) in our 'cave'

Choose this option if you are in for an adventure. Check out our bivouac page to read more about our 'cave' and when it is available.

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 drive through the beautiful desert to Jabal Al-Hash. The mountain is close to the border with Saudi Arabia. No matter which route your guide chooses, the hike, which includes some scrambling, is doable for anyone who is reasonably fit. The views of both the north and the south of Wadi Sabet are beautiful. You can see the difference between the red and the white sandstone. This hike also gives you a unique opportunity to discover fossils on the mountain. After taking our time to relax and enjoy the mesmerizing views, we head back to the jeep.

Day 2 - Lunchtime

We drive 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 2 - In the afternoon

In the afternoon, we go on another jeep tour. We first head to a Bedouin dam. You can see how we construct dams to collect and save water for use during the dry season. Afterward, we continue to Um Ashaman where we make a stop at a rock bridge known as ‘the eye’. Then we head to another beautifully shaped rock, Cow rock. Some call this rock Chicken rock. We wonder which name you find most fit. As the sun starts to set, we head to Um Sabatah to watch the sunset.

Day 2 - The overnight stay

For your second overnight stay, we offer two options.

Overnight stay in Wadi Rum Base Camp

After the sunset, we bring you to our camp. If this is your first night in 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. And if this is your second night in our camp, you are already at home.

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.

Day 3 - In the morning

If you missed the sunrise yesterday, today is your last chance to see 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 desert tour Jabal Al-Hash

We spent two days and two nights as a family with the Wadi Rum Nomads team. This stay will remain unforgettable! We were very well received. The guides took us through the desert to beautiful places, almost to the Saudi border. There were some fabulous moments of exchange. Our guides were very attentive to us. The food was excellent, and we had as many bottles of water available as we wanted. The camp is in a very beautiful place, in the middle of the desert. The tents are very clean and comfortable, and the sanitary facilities are also very clean. We really enjoyed the meals under the large and pretty Bedouin tent and the evenings around the fire. The team has some nice unexpected surprises in store for us. We highly recommend Wadi Rum Nomads to anyone who wants to explore the beautiful desert of Wadi Rum. Thanks again to the whole team!

The experience in the desert with the Wadi Rum Nomads team is an out-of-the-ordinary experience, out of time and out of the beaten tourist track. Everything is done to make sure that the stay is the best possible. The team is very attentive. And our guide, Nawaf made us feel at ease so that we feel part of the Wadi Rum Nomads family and not just like a simple tourists.Nawaf was able to propose us multiple activities and excursions according to our desires and tastes. He is a great person who knows very well how to tell you his history, life, and culture. Special mention for the night in the cave, magical moments of exchange and sharing, and guaranteed disconnection! Thanks to the Wadi Rum Nomads team and Nawaf for his good mood and jokes.

In typical English fashion, I very nearly cancelled our trip due to the weather forecast looking a little wet..! Prior to arrival I contacted Bianca who promptly convinced me to visit. Man alive, I'm so glad we went! We were treated to epic skies, sandstorms, sunshine, wind and a little rain during our 2 day visit, and feel honoured to have seen Wadi Rum during this unusual spell of weather. The staff on hand are amazing, and a huge thank you to Fadi, our guide for the trip. He is knowledgeable, polite and engaging...and rustles up a decent desert feed..!
The base camp is practical with very comfy beds and a nice warm communal dining tent, and clean washroom and toilet facilities. In summary, Fawaz, Bianca and their crew worked tirelessly to provide the kind of memories that I will cherish for ever more...and I am already planning to return.
