Shabab Sahra

Wadi Rum Rd 77110, Wadi Rum Village, Jordan

For some, it’s enough to simply admire the craggy rocks and mountains of Wadi Rum. For others, the landscape presents a challenge that can only be met through climbing and scrambling. Enter Shabab Sahra, a group of locally born guides who have been clambering around Wadi Rum almost since they could walk. Currently the only internationally accredited climbing guides in the area, they cater to everyone from complete novices to experienced climbers, providing equipment and expert guidance for a series of different adventures, including longer camping trips to some of the desert’s most remote and spectacular mountains.
