Obeid and sons

Obeid and sons

Our story

has started back in 2001, when Obeid, after his retirement from the police decided to make his own private tours to the desert. Soon after he found the perfect location for a camp in a hidden, scenic spot of the Wadi Rum Protected Area, and set up the old family tent of his grandfather in which he had grown up.  Through the years the camp grew a bit in size and comfort, but maintained its authentic and traditional Bedouin features.

With its growing reputation, its name also became popular (some camps even borrowed it). Obeid’s sons Nail, Salem and Mohammed also grew in the meantime, and they have started to help their father, continuing the tradition of Bedouin hospitality.


Programs in Wadi Rum

Jeep tours

You may explore the desert best by jeep, allowing you to see the most beautiful sites in a couple of hours. We usually start our jeep tours from our camp, and stop at all of the famous sites of Wadi Rum such as Lawrence’s House, the Red Sand Dune, the Mushroom Stone, Barrah Canyon and the Um Fruth Rock Bridge, a natural rock arch. More.

Camel ride

Camel riding is the traditional Bedouin way to move around in the desert, a unique experience everyone should try. Camel rides may vary from one hour up to a couple of days, with night stops on the way and with jeep carrying the luggage. More.

Hiking and climbing

Wadi Rum offers great hiking and trekking opportunities on its sandstone rocks and hills, be it a walk in the soft sand or a climb to the top of a mountain. We offer a hiking and scrambling tours of any length. Each of our routes provide breathtaking views of the desert landscapes and some of the trails have been used by the Bedouins for many generations. More.

Hot Air Balloon Flight

Nothing is more breathtaking than seeing the Wadi Rum desert from the sky. The inflation of the balloon is a sight in itself, let alone the balloon flight above the rocky hills and colorful sand dunes so let yourself be carried away by the desert wind. More.


Enjoy the sight of thousands of stars on the desert sky through the telescope. More.

Yoga and meditation

We organize one-week yoga programs in the desert, along with visiting the best sights of Jordan. Our secluded campsite with its breathtaking views offers a great setting for cleansing your mind. Our yoga instructor is an experienced yoga teacher who has learned authentic traditional yoga in India, having spent three years in an ashram. More.

Guest reviews

We have never before experienced hospitality such as that of Obeid. From the moment we booked through until we said goodbye Obeid was communicative, informative and treated us as an extension of his family. His camp is authentic whilst still being clean and comfortable with facilities available for contemporary lifestyle (i.e. solar power, wifi and bathroom block).

Breathtaking experience in the wild unique nature! The hospitality, attitude and jokes of the brothers made us feel important and exceptional. We enjoyed every moment in the desert and at the camp.
