Hop on the back of a camel and trek through Wadi Rum on this thorough full-day tour. Discover why the camel is known as the "ship of the desert" as you make your way through the same desert the Bedouin people have called home for centuries.
What to Expect
Explore Wadi Rum, one of the great Middle Eastern wildernesses, on camel. As you ride through the desert you'll learn how the arid landscape has provided a refuge to the hardy Bedouin people who have called the Wadi Rum home for many years.
Wadi Rum has been featured in countless films including the iconic Lawrence of Arabia, and more recently the harsh backdrop of fissured rock and red sand has been made to look like the surface of Mars.
Even on a short trip of a day or so, the joys of guiding your own camel with a Bedouin guide riding alongside is infinitely rewarding. Over the course of an hour you'll experience the way generations of people have moved through the desert for millennia. You'll also learn why the camel, also known as the "ship of the desert," is the most authentic mode of travel.
