With Saleh you are not treated as a tourist but as a true guest in his home. We had a chance to see marvellous magic of Wadi Rum with all major spots and the sunset on the desert. Evening and overnight in his desert camp will stay with us as a unforgettable memory. We were travelling as a family with three children and the whole day trip enriched with camel ride was the best time we spent in our trip to Jordan.

Had the best time spending two nights in Saleh’s camp and getting to know him and his family. They treated us like family and took great care of us from the transportation to seeing the best sites. Alia, his wife made delicious food catered to our dietary needs and likes and we had a ton of fun spending a day in the desert with his son, Moaz. We left with memories we will cherish and will definitely want to come back! Can not say enough great things about the experience.

Thank you very much, Saleh and Alia, for welcoming us into your camp. You made us feel like family! Thank you for cooking delicious vegetarian meals for the five of us. The camel ride was safe and unforgettable. Your handsome son, Moaz, gave us a great full-day tour of the nearby stunning sites; cooked a meal for our leisurely lunch as we relaxed in the cool shade, and timed it perfectly to close our day with a spectacular sunset experience. We will long remember sleeping outside under the starry, desert sky. Blessings on you and your family.We will treasure our very fond memories of being with you all.

My family group of four had a wonderful experience with Saleh and his family and I highly recommend Saleh’s Safari Camp.I was looking for a local company that I could book with direct (not through a booking site or an agent). Saleh’s website accurately describes the tours and stays he offers and the prices - there is nothing hidden.We opted to take a camel ride out into the desert before being picked up by a family member for a memorable ride in the back of a pick up truck. The driver took us to all the best places (along with tourists with other operators) and then let us get on with it. In other words we had the best balance of a guide and freedom.The camp is perfect: basic, but comfortable and clean. Saleh’s wife cooked us a delicious meal and breakfast the next day. There were just two other family groups staying and the atmosphere was quiet and relaxed.We took our children aged 14 and 13 and this is perfect for adventurous teenagers.

Saleh was really welcoming and friendly. Nothing was rushed, he took his time to take us to the best spots. Ride was very bumpy and shaky in the jeep, but I believe that is to be expected on the Wadi Rum desert terrain. Got some excellent photos Great experience, great value for money too!

What a wonderful place! Stayed several nights here; Saleh and his family are great hosts, wonderful food, the tours were both relaxing and spectacular. This camp has no neighbors close by, and is very very quiet. The stars are bright at night. Staying here is like visiting family.
