It often happens that groups of
people would very much like to visit Wadi Rum but have little time. This
programme is designed to offer small parties a real "desert experience" in an
afternoon and an overnight.
We would ask you to arrive reasonably early, say
around 2 or 3pm (the earlier you arrive, the more you would see). We then take
you on out classic jeep tour or as much of it as we have time for, before
driving you south, away from the normal tourist areas and into the "wild parts"
of the desert.
There we bivouac in a sheltered place and have a
Bedouin supper, such as we cook for ourselves when we are out in the desert,
followed by talk around the fire or perhaps a dance or two before sleeping out
under the stars.
This programme is more difficult in the winter
months, not just because it is cold, but because sunset comes early. But in the
summer this is a marvellous desert experience.
This programme needs three guides, one to drive the
jeep and two others to go ahead, prepare the camp and start supper which usually
needs two to three hours to cook. It is therefore fairly expensive and we do not
expect less than six people to take this up - we could do it for you if you
really want to!

For six to eight people we would ask for
60JD/person, and for nine to ten people 50JD/person. As usual this price
includes all food, guide services and equipment for sleeping in the desert. We
would bring mattresses, pillows and blankets out to the selected site - which
will not always be the same one.
We bring you back to the village in the morning at
whatever time suits your programme.
