About Wadi Rum

Wadi Rum is a spectacular desert environment situated in southern Jordan,

Famous for its high sandstone outcroppings and its red and white sand dunes, Wadi Rum is a popular tourist attraction for those whom nature entices to explore its magical beauty.

Wadi Rum’s location, about 30 Km from the main Desert Highway between Aqaba and Amman, makes it a truly ‘off-the-beaten track’ location. This distance gives Wadi Rum its unique characteristic as a remote and peaceful area. However, as its popularity has grown over the past 20 years, you will find numerous Bedouin-style camps which offer tourists a special experience of desert life – including the opportunity to sleep under a sky full of stars.
