If you are a vegan, vegetarian, or have any other special diet/food restrictions, we will have an adapted meal for you.After a good tasting of local gastronomy, you will find a special open resting tent outside, where you can relax and have a cup of tea. Arranged with mattresses and carpets, it is a good place to read a book, chill out, or have good talks enjoying the shade and the good Wadi Rum particular cool desert breeze.Other optional activities can be included in your stay as well, such as Jeep tours, desert trekking, camel rides and mountain climbing.

The camp also provides the possibility for renting tent pitches around our site, in case you are coming with your camping tent. Groups and families booking in the same tent is possible, just ask us. We can also re-arrange our tents according to your preferences (e.g. our 6-bed tent can have up to 8 beds, or we can add triple tents), and we have place for pitching your tent around our camp.All tents are equipped with beds and carpets on the floor. Bed sheets and linen for winter and summertime are provided. Private toilets and shower are located outside of the tents.Cleanliness and good care are always two important elements in the management of our camp facilities.Location:Salman Zwaidh Camp is located inside the Protected Area of Wadi Rum, just a 15min Jeep ride from the Visitor Centre. In one side, the camp is surrounded by beautiful orange-colored rock mountains. The big wall formed provides shelter to some species of little birds, that will come around to sing to you from time to time. The most adventurous consider it a good scrambling area to go appreciate the panorama view from the natural cave up there. An alternative walk from behind the mountain is accessible if you want to join them.A few steps away, on the other side of the camp, the scene opens over a wide desert corridor, where the eyes can reach the mountains on the horizon further ahead. There, you will be privileged by being right at one of the best local famous sunset and sunrise spots, an experience that will assure you feel the essence of the desert, combining beauty and tranquility into a show of lights that will connect you directly to the nature. At night, you will be amazed by the appreciation of the silence under the stars or walks guided by a full-moon sky. A two-minute walk will take you to smooth sand dunes, allowing fun day slides or calm night talks. ... more less
