a family business
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.

no risks but lots of adventure
We offer adventure tourism for all ages. We welcome children!! And their grandparents too! As well as women travellers. Also independent tourists.

Saadeq is the Arabic word for honest. It's important to us that you leave here loving Rum as much as we do, having had a totally authentic experience. The prices on this site are what you'll pay.

cheapest for families and couples
We believe we offer the best value in Rum for families and for couples. Our tour charges are the same for one person or a couple or a family!

Eco-tourism in Rum -- trekking and tracking

E-mail Print
(Duration: one full day or longer)
You're in the middle of a fragile environment in Wadi Rum, the eco-systems are under threat and
vulnerable. Since 1998 it's been a protected area and there are rules and advice so you can be
part of the effort to preserve these special places -->

Those most adept at living in harmony with Rum's harsh and unforgiving realities are some of the
bedouin who depend on sustaining the systems for their survival. Saleh's brother, Atiyek, is an
expert trekker and tracker, knowing the bedouin ways of Rum, the plants and creatures they
depend on and where to find them.

Share some of this knowledge; walk where few visitors ever go; see the tracks of shy snakes and
lizards; taste the desert zarta; or the wild figs, or olives or habbuq, clinging to life around mountain
springs; perhaps even glimpse rarer creatures on the edge of extinction here (wolves, hyenas,
ibex, oryx) and passing birds of prey, in this most memorable of desert landscapes.

If you are an expert in arid-land flora and fauna you'll know more than Atiyek but he knows more
about what Rum can offer and where and when. Share and pool your knowledge and have an
unforgettable experience seeing things no-one else gets close to in locations no-one else will find.

(then look at the cost per day of a bedouin guide, add in a bit more for food and shelter and
transport to your starting point and finally back to 'civilisation' at the end of your trek)
