Desert adventure with camels

Camel tour

Experience the desert silence
A tour with camels is the opportunity to penetrate even deeper into the lives of the Bedouins. Even though nowadays a lot of Bedouins are driving around with jeeps, the camels still have a high priority in my life. Sitting on a camel, feeling the camel’s movements and riding silently through the desert sands is a sublime feeling. That feeling is what I want to convey to my guests. We can spend a day and a night together with the animals, but also several days and nights. A guide will be on the road with my guests and the camels. I will accompany the trek with the jeep. Of course, at an appropriate distance to not disturb the peace.

Tour itinerary
Before sunset we reach our place for the night. Here I set up a camp with seat mats and cushions. A cozy fire burns in the center. I prepare a typical Bedouin dinner, there is tea and after sunset the beautiful starry sky opens up.

We will sleep on mats or in small tents. Blankets and pillows are available. We sleep here as is customary among Bedouins in the desert. A night under the stars is a highlight in Wadi Rum. Here you are closest to the life of the Bedouins.

In the morning we wake up to the chirping of birds. Everything else is silent. After a good breakfast we ride on.

Important information

I advise bringing sunscreen. Furthermore, a scarf, which serves as a headgear, should be included. A hat is inconvenient due to the headwind while driving the jeep. A small backpack for the day is also useful. A flashlight or headlamp as well as toilet paper and small plastic bags for disposing of your rubbish are very useful for the night-time “toilet visit”.

Clothing: comfortable clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty. Good hiking shoes or trekking sandals with socks and a fleece or large, warm sweater for the night.

As for the sanitary facilities, there are neither showers nor toilets in the desert, but since the desert is huge, you can always find a quiet corner.

In general, it is important to always have a small plastic bag with you for rubbish. There will also be a trash can in the car.

Yes, thanks to the bivouac sites I have chosen (protected by the rock), the wood fire and our large blankets, the camp temperature is always comfortable and we sleep outside all year round.

Important: I cannot wash our mattresses and blankets between every visitor. If you are sensitive and would like to sleep on a very clean sheet, please bring your own duvets and sheets.

I work exclusively in hiking bivouacs. In fact, I am against any idea of ​​fixed camps. These unfortunately too many and mostly illegal permanent installations destroy the landscape.

At the end of the day, I choose a spot sheltered by a rock and set up camp. We spend the evening, have dinner and sleep under the beautiful starry sky, warmed by the wood fire. Falling asleep looking at the Milky Way is an unforgettable experience. That’s why I prefer the nights under the stars.
