"Salman was a great host for us! I didn't feel like a customer, I felt like a guest at his home. He was so kind and always asking if we were fine and if everything was fine. I could only stay one…"

About Salman Zwaidh Camp

Salman Zwaidh Camp is a small and familiar camp that offers you a diverse experience of the Bedouin lifestyle. During your stay you will have the opportunity to meet local people, listen to their stories and share good conversations. Friends always pass by the camp to have a talk and your host Bedouin family would be happy to meet you.

Prices are given on a half-board basis since the camp is in the desert, or meals can be bought for 7 Jordanian Dinar each. We are also welcome to our camp kitchen if you wish to discover bedouin cooking ! All our meals are made according to our local cultural habits. If you are a vegan, vegetarian, or have any other special diet/food restrictions, we will cook an adapted meal for you.

After a good tasting of local gastronomy, you will find our open rest tent, where you can relax and have a cup of tea. Arranged with mattresses and carpets, it is a fine place to read a book, take a nap, or have good talks enjoying an outdoor shade and Wadi Rum's particular cool desert breeze.

Other optional activities can also be included in your stay (even if you are not camping with us), such as Jeep tours (3-4 Hours), desert trekking, camel rides, mountain climbing and hiking. We would be glad to help you arrange any other activities that we may not offer.
We provide camel rides at any time you want, its a one hour ride in the desert with a guide... And also we offer a jeep tour for 4 hours, where we show you all the historical spots in Wadi Rum, These you can reserve when you arrive to the camp.

Accommodation Information

Our traditional tents were thought to comfortably adapt the Bedouin simple style and your pleasant stay.
We have different tent types available: 1 double bed, 2 single beds, 3 single beds, and 6 single beds. Groups or families booking in the same tent is possible, just ask us. We can also re-arrange our tents according to your preferences (e.g. our 6-bed tent can have up to 8 beds, and we can add triple tents to our capacity). The camp offers a place for camping pitches as well, in case you wish to come with your own tent.

All tents are equipped with beds and carpets on the floor. Bed sheets and linen for winter and summertime are provided. Private toilets and shower are located outside.

Cleanliness and good care are always two important elements in the management of our camp facilities.

Location Information

Salman Zwaidh Camp is located inside the Protected Area of Wadi Rum, just a 15min Jeep ride from the Visitor Center and 30min from the Desert Highway.
In one side, the camp is surrounded by outstanding orange-color rock mountains. The big wall formed provides shelter to some species of little birds, which will come around to sing to us from time to time. The most adventurous consider it a good scrambling area to go appreciate the panorama view from the natural cave up there. An alternative walk from behind the mountain will take you even higher in a special spot to look over the camp!
A few steps away, on the other side of the camp, the scene opens over a wide desert corridor, where the eyes can reach the mountains further ahead on the horizon. There, you will be privileged by being right at one of the best local famous sunset and sunrise spots, an experience that will surely make you feel the essence of the desert, combining beauty and tranquillity into a show of lights. At night, you will be amazed by the appreciation of the silence under the stars or walks guided by a full-moon sky.
Finally, a two-minute walk will take you to smooth sand dunes, allowing fun day slides or calm night talks.
Between earth and sky, a stay here will connect you directly to the nature. Be ready for an opportunity of exercising your internal peace and calm.
