The detailed extension camel ride itinerary
In the morning
This morning you have the chance to witness the magnificent sunrise. At 7 AM, breakfast will be served, and you will have time to prepare for the day.
Before embarking on our desert adventure, you will be given a quick tutorial on how to mount and ride a camel. We will begin our journey by making our way to the breathtaking Wadi Um Ishrin. As we venture through the magnificent landscape, we eventually reach the Al-Hasany dune. Here, we will pause our camel ride, allowing you to stretch your legs by climbing atop the dune. You can revel in the panoramic view before going back down. Once we are ready to continue, we will mount our camels, continuing towards Anfishiyyeh – an imposing rock wall adorned with ancient Thamudic and Nabatean engravings and drawings. We will take time to appreciate the incredible history and beauty of this location.
We venture further into the desert until we reach a tranquil and picturesque spot where we pause for a lunch break. Your camel handler will provide you with a packed lunch. 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.
In the afternoon
Our afternoon begins with the ride to Khor al Ajram. As you make your way through this vast valley, be sure to take in the breathtaking views that surround you. Our journey continues to the tranquil and stunning Qabr Amra canyon, where you will be awed by the towering mountains that encircle you. And as you venture through the small passageway that leads to Khashkhasha canyon, prepare to be amazed by the lush greenery and stunning vistas that await you. As today’s adventure comes to an end, we will head to our camp, arriving around 6 PM or, if the sunset is earlier, at sunset time, which you can check on the website timeanddate.com.
The overnight stay
We offer two choices for your overnight accommodation: a tent at our camp or outdoor sleeping near our camp. Visit our accommodations page to find detailed information for each option.
After the sun sets, we will take you to our camp. 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.
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.
In the morning
Make sure not to miss the chance to witness the magnificent sunrise. 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.
