SALEH'S SAFARI CAMP
 
(Duration; one-day--and-one-night or longer)
Embrace another world. Just base yourself in Saleh's camp at the heart of Wadi Rum in the shelter of Jebel Khazali and relax. Watch the world pass you by; people come and go and you can interact as much or as little as you want and stay for as many days as you want.
 
 
It's an intriguing contradiction these days. Often as quiet and peaceful as a hundred years ago but there's solar power and usually good internet and mobile connections. We're environmentally aware and received the Green Key award but we have (limited) hot water for our guests and warming camp fires from time to time.
 
 
All of Saleh's visitors spend time here; the location is very special, hidden away and sheltered; small and traditional, comfortable with modern facilities. Saleh's wife cooks her wonderful meals here and the guests stay overnight. We often joke that it's so quiet you can hear the stars moving across the sky; dazzling and memorable; there's no light pollution.
 
 
From Saleh's Safari Camp you can walk around Jebel Khazali and visit the canyon with its famous Nabatean inscriptions. Or you can cross the valley to Jebel Qatar, where you can see the rocks made by water meeting the rocks made by fire, the junction marked by seeping springs and a line of vegetation, including stunted fig trees.

here's the perfect way to remember or celebrate Wadi Rum. We call the stones 'desert pearls' and they're hidden beneath some of the sandstone cliffs, washed out by seasonal showers; we're working with RSCN Jordan rockingjewellery.com
