Why we chose this tour

Getting up close with Bedouin culture and cuisine in the magical setting of Wadi Rum is a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience. On our Wadi Rum Bedouin Desert Immersive Food & Cultural Experience you'll go far deeper into the magical desert than most visitors get to go, get far closer to the Bedouin locals, and far more immersed into the culture, and especially the unique cuisine and sleeping under the stars. You'll explore with a local Bedouin guide, a tribe-leader who was born and grew up in a cave, and now lives in a local village. See the depths of the desert, hear stories, and learn about the historic and modern day way-of-life. Hike, ride camelback, and explore by jeep, see the sunset from a remote peak, before heading down into a valley to set up camp for the night. As sun-falls, you'll start the highlight of the trip - learning to cook Bedouin style desert cuisine led by an expert local chef, including a Zarb barbecue where meat is cooked underneath the ground, salads, and other local traditional foods. Eating around the camp-fire with the stars as your backdrop, the stories and conversations shared will stay with you for life. Our Wadi Rum Bedouin Desert Immersive Food & Cultural Experience is available throughout the year.

You’ll sleep under the stars on the first night of your Wadi Rum Bedouin Desert Immersive Food & Cultural Experience, before another full day of exploration seeing the nature and wildlife of the region. Learn about how the families live here today, how food is gathered, and how modern influences are let in yet do not destroy the rich cultures. And in a luxury Martial Style tent in a hotel-style campsite on the second night, full of modern luxuries. The contrast is part of the rich Wadi Rum experience, where modernity and the traditional culture fuses in a truly unique way. And the natural beauty of this remote and truly unique place is hard to compete with. You’ll cross the same pink sands that the forefathers of your guide have lived on for generations, and modern day movie producers have set out to use to recreate lunar landscapes – whether it be Ridley Scott’s “The Martian” starting Matt Damon, or Denis Villeneuve’s, “Dune” starring Timothee Chalamet.
