We're bedouin, born here in Rum, members of the proud Huwaitat tribe, descendants of the Nabateans who built Petra and helped to give the Arab world its freedom nearly 100 year ago.

Special Weekends

E-mail Print
During the next year, we are offering a few two-day themed tours in WadiRum. The numbers
are strictly limited and you will have to prebook and prepay -- so if you're interested please
contact us soon. Some tours will be strenuous and tough, others will be more intellectually
challenging! all will be fun. They will be organised by Saleh, Alia will provide the food and
Attiyek will lead you through the desert.

* We are planning a two-day desert marathon, between all the main locations of Rum,
with support on the way and a Rum marathon certifcate at the end! and yes you will have to
walk more than 42 kms!
* There'll be a two-day Rum camel caravan, taking you to corners of Rum that can't be
reached by 4x4 and letting you experience the desert like the bedouins have for centuries;
again with support and your luggage carried ahead to your overnight camp in the heart of
the protected area.

* Help us to create a challenging GPS-scrambling Treasure Hunt weekend. Saleh's father
told him of a mysterious Turk who gave directions to a hidden treasure within walking
distance of Rum village. It's never been found. This time we will provide the treasure and it
will be found but not on the first day and not until you've scoured most of Rum.
* And we want to organise an extended Behind the Veil visit, where women only will learn in
detail how to cook bedouin food and share far more intimate details of life than is possible
on a short-visit.
* We will organise a special weekend for photographers, with an exhibition at the end!
* For the really hardy we can run a desert survival weekend, where all you take with you is
the water you need; everything else you have to find on your journey; though you can recover
on your final night in the luxury of Saleh's mother's bedouin camp near Jebel Khazali.
* There will be a 'Legacy of Lawrence' weekend, with lectures and touring and even trips
beyond Rum. Perhaps we'll run something similar on the history of the Nabateans.

If you are interested EMAIL US NOW! Let us know which special tour you like and the best
dates for you. We need at least five people and a maximum of twenty for each tour. You will be
with a small, select group who share your interests and enthusiasms.
Most of the tours will begin at 9am on Friday morning and end after sunset on Saturday. The cost,
including two days' lunch and dinner, one night camping, breakfast on Saturday, entrance to
Wadi Rum and all the touring will be 90 Jordanian dinars per person, that's about US $130!

special rates to families with younger children.
Please note, you can also stay with Saleh on the Thursday and Saturday nights, for 20 JDs per

exploring Jordan's rich archeology and religious history while relaxing in the safest place on the
planet to sunbathe!
