There are basically
two ways to visit Wadi Rum with a camel : the first is with somebody (usually a
young boy) leading the camel. The second is to have a mounted guide with you.
While most people
arriving at the Resthouse take the first option, we always prefer to offer the
second one to our clients.
It is certainly a bit more expensive, since the camel for the
guide has to be taken into account, but in our experience there is no comparison
in the enjoyment felt. With a mounted guide, you go faster, you therefore cover
much more ground, and since the basic technique of camel riding is easily and quickly
mastered, within an hour or so you will be guiding your own camel and will feel
much more independent. Your guide will only keep the leading rein if you are
unhappy about being in charge.
A camel is not like a horse and few people have any problem
with one. Although they look decidedly unfriendly, in fact this is deceptive, and
most people come quickly to appreciate their qualities.
They make little noise and you will be able to experience the
complete silence of the desert.
We offer camel trips lasting from one to five days, and also
trips combined with either jeep riding or hiking - and with both. Not all of the
itineraries are given here for the longer trips, we can supply them at your
No special equipment or dress is necessary. As always you
will need a shoulder bag or rucksack, and please, ladies - you will be more
comfortable in trousers! Any kind of shoes or sandals will be fine.
The prices take account of the mounted guide in every
case: if you prefer to have a guide on foot with you,
the itinerary as well as
the price will be altered so please let us know in advance.
