Highlights near Aqaba

Spend the night under the stars at a Bedouin camp in the desert

Your visit begins with a tour of the desert from the back of an old Toyota truck. Your guide will show you the pleasures of the desert and teach you a bit of history, and will show you just how warm Bedouin hospitality is.

After a few hours of jumping and sledding down sand dunes, reading ancient picture stories, and climbing all kinds of rock formations, your guide will take you to your camp. There you will be given a cabin - a steel frame draped with Bedouin carpets to keep out the wind and sand, with beds, pillows, and the heaviest blankets you'll ever sleep under.

A fire is lit in the main tent (or outside in summer), where everyone gathers for tea and stories and music and dinner.

Then head back outside to see the most magnificent sky you will ever see.
