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!

Jordan's highest mountain

(Duration: one day or one-day-and-one-night)
Jebel Umm Adaami is 40 kms south of Rum village; the drive takes you through the stunning
desert wilderness of Wadi Saabet, past natural rock sculptures and along a dried up wadi.

It's not a climb to undertake without an experienced Bedouin guide (though the drive alone makes
a fantastic, different one-day tour). The ascent is not difficult nor too challenging if you're fit, as
long as you know which route to take. And a guide shows you the lizard and snake tracks and
identifies the pungent desert zarta.

In the centre of the first picture below is a tiny white dot, the 4x4 and next to it, in the sand, lunch is
being cooked. South from the summit is the forbidden landscape of Saudi Arabia (inaccessible to
most of us). The 1854 metre summit of Jebel Umm Adaami is as close as we're allowed.

The return journey takes you past Saleh's mother's tent near Khazali, a perfect place to spend the
night and enjoy the sense of achievement after climbing Jordan's highest mountain.
