sleep in a traditional bedouin camp
Experience the true Bedouin hospitality in our traditional style camp, run by a Bedouin family. Located in the middle of the desert, the views are amazing! You are surrounded by mountains and the red desert landscape. And when you are lucky, you will even see camel herds pass by.
Our small and cozy camp is the best place to disconnect from the world and connect with the locals and tourists around you. The main tent is a meeting point for tourists and locals, where we like to come together to eat, or sit around the campfire telling stories, singing, dancing or just relaxing. Only good vibes!
For more privacy, you have your own private tent with mountain view, a comfortable bed, and blankets. We have 5 Bedouin style tents and 5 partially glass tents with panoramic views of the sunrise where you can stargaze from your bed. Our tents have room for up to 5 people, but we can host bigger families as well. We find it important to keep the traditional style alive in our camp, but we also have some modern facilities. Each tent has lighting and charging stations. And we have 2 bathroom buildings, one for man and one for woman, each with 3 modern showers and 3 modern toilets.
So, choose your tent and join us for a unique camping experience!
For the true traditional experience, where you really go back to basics, you can book a night in the Cave where you sleep outside under the stars.
