Our stay in the desert camp was one of the best experiences ever. Everyone there was extremely kind and we liked every single moment with Bedouins. If we ever return to Wadi Rum, we will stay here again.

Absolutely breath taking! Zaid’s camp is beautiful and one of the most remote places to camp under the stars in the desert. I was visiting Wadi Rum to see my partner finish the ultra marathon and both Zaid and his brother were so accommodating and easy to communicate with. There is spotty reception in Wadi Rum area and when I arrived I had no details on where to go for the finish line. Zaid’s brother helped me go around the village until we could organize a ride with a driver he knew well. He also came back to pick us up and helped my friends organize rides to their respective camp. I wish I had more time to spend in the desert to enjoy all the tours. The stargazing is a MUST it’s truly like being in another world. Thank you again we hope to come back soon!

A tester d’urgence ! La tente est très propre et spacieuse, située en plein désert de Wadi Rum. Zaid a bien pris soin de nous pendant le séjour, il a su nous proposer diverses activités pour nous en mettre plein la vue. Les paysages sont à couper le souffle et les activités sont minutieusement choisies. Le soir un dîner traditionnel nous a été servi avec les explications du chef, un pur régal ! Et pour finir en beauté, nous avons eu un magnifique coucher sous les étoiles ! Le matin un petit déjeuner compris, délicieux simple et efficace est servi. Merci au personnel pour leur accueil chaleureux et leur gentillesse ainsi que pour leur efficacité à satisfaire la moindre demande.

Absolutely loved it here, easily one of the best places we’ve ever stayed! Zaid was super welcoming and friendly and the location was incredible - there are so many different camps to choose from but I think we picked the best. You couldn’t see another camp, it felt so secluded and peaceful and the view was amazing! The stars on the night were unreal🤩 We had a packed lunch and cooked dinner and both were great! The packed lunch had lots of snacks and the dinner was delicious. Tours were flexible and we did a 2.5 hour jeep tour and saw some amazing sights, our guide explained each one and told us the best photo spots! Definitely recommend staying here🙂

It was an incredible experience, the tends were private, with all the facilities we wanted. Zaid is an incredible person, who helped us every time we needed. The ubication is fantastic, we could enjoy the Wadi Rum desert and it's amazing sky. 100% recomendable if you want to enjoy the experience of spending the night in the middle of the desert. Thanks for all Zaid!

This camp site with beautiful designed tents were a best accommodation that we had in Jordan. Absolutely recommended. Hosts are so nice and they take care of everything you need. Zaid himself drove me to village just because I do not have phone signal and I needed to connect my family. Food cooked traditionally in the sand and was delicious. Camp fire and tea they offer is a great way to socialize with other guests. Also, the jeep tours in the desert are worth to have a best journey and memory in Wadi Rum desert. I love it. If I come to Wadi Rum again I will definitely stay here again!

Cette nuit était incroyable, nous allons nous en rappeler toute notre vie. Ce fut une expérience merveilleuse avec des personnes inoubliables. La visite du désert, le repas cuit sous le sable, le thé à la belle étoile, les discussions autour d'un feu de camp. Je vous conseille vivement ce camp il est propre et très bien entretenu, vous pouvez avoir confiance. À toute l'équipe du camp, merci pour tout ❤️

The stay at the camp was easily the best out of our Jordan holiday. Everyone at the camp was super friendly and the jeep tour was amazing. The food was absolutely delicious. In the evening we sat around a fire and talked with other guests while drinking lots of delicious tea. The desert was so beautiful and quiet. Definitely recommend staying at Zaid's camp. And if you have time, stay for more than one night! I wish we could have stayed longer. It was the ultimate rest we needed after traveling around Jordan.
