Tour Highlights

We start at Wadi Rum village and drive to Umm Addami Mountain. On the way, we stop at Nughara Canyon and break there to watch Nughara view. Then we continue to Um Addami Mountain to start the hike and enjoy the view from the top. The hike up the mountain takes about 3-4h. After getting back down, we have lunch, then cross the White Desert with some more nice views, and depending on the time stop at some places. After locating a nice spot to watch the sunset, we go back to the village or head to our Bedouin camp (extra charge 25JD), depending on your choice.

At the camp, you can enjoy traditional Bedouin food as part of a big buffet, relax over a cup of Bedouin tea while enjoying the silence of the desert, and listen to traditional Bedouin music under the stars. And of course you will sleep in one of our comfortable private tents and get to eat from our breakfast buffet in the morning.

Tour Introduction

This is the highest mountain in Jordan (1854m), also within the high area of the Wadi Rum desert. It is located at the border of Saudi Arabia. It is also pretty easy and suitable for almost everyone. The tour also includes some stops at other scenic spots in the desert. Getting to Umm Addami in the jeep you go through the white desert and pass Nughara Canyon. Starting the hike, the first thirty minutes you will have to use your hands a bit, scrambling and climbing up over some easy rocks, then continue hiking to the top going up hills with beautiful views. From the summit, you can enjoy a 360° view in all directions. To the South side, you can see Saudi Arabia, to the North side mountains and the white desert outside the protected area, as well as Jabal Rum, the second highest mountain in Jordan, inside the protected area. You can see very far overlooking huge areas of the desert. Enjoy the different colours and shades of sand, rocks, and mountains.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ By Cro Dance

Unforgettable experience of two days in the desert, sleeping in a tent overnight. We had the honor to be taken by the father of the big family that operates the tours. From the start, we felt like part of the family, with tea, water and excellent food, despite being prepared in the desert. Visiting all the important places, hiking alone through the desert and enjoying the sunset above the overnight camp, everything was top notch.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ By Micha Akchoti

I only have amazing things to say about Wild Wadi Rum Tours. Our stay with Salman and his brothers has been by far the highlight of our trip to Jordan. They were always kind, warm, welcoming, helpful and flexible. We had opted for the three days camel tour (for which I would recommend a very thick foam or sponge protection between your legs, cause after a full day you'll get very sore). I would recommend a longer tour as this allows you to go in lesser known parts of Wadi Rum where they'll be much less tourists (if any). The camp is basic but comfortable, you'll have everything you need, with great food. It's also populated by a nice crowd, generally bagpackers, climbers. It allows you to avoid the whole influencer type of crowd you can have in other camps. Overall I would highly recommend Wild Wadi Rum Tours if you want an experience that feels true to the desert, to the bedouin culture. You will definitely never regret it or forget it

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ By Toma Izabele Migdol

Undoubtedly the best Wadi Rum tours you will find - Salman and his beautiful family make you instantly feel like home and well taken care of. We went for the two day trip with camel ride and the whole day jeep tour. Local bedouin food was delicious, the camp hidden in a cosy corner of the desert had neat bathrooms and shower, and private tents and living space were traditionally decorated and spacious. The tour itself was well organised and we had plenty of time to enjoy every location in the desert. The family puts a personal touch to every part of the experience (such as sons playing traditional music after the dinner), everyone we met were extremely kind. I wholeheartedly recommend them and will definitely return again.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ By Thomas Gordon

Salman Eid and his team did a wonderful job with our tour. We had a freak rain storm that turned into hail. They made the best of it. Tour part was really nice. Started with tea at his home, then with his cousin to see the sites, stopped for lunch at a camp site, then spent the rest of the afternoon seeing Wadi Rum. Definitely a good value and would recommend.

Both myself and my son had the experience of a lifetime with wild wadi rum tours my only regret is we didn't have more time there, can't recommend them enough! We was very well looked after, great food, comfy beds, great showers especially considering we was in the desert! Salman and his family are truly amazing humble people, thank you again for a lovely stay, I will return with more time to spend for definite! P.s if you get a taxi from anywhere to wadi rum village do not let the taxi driver convince you to stay somewhere will regret it, wild wadi rum tours are great hosts! thanks again Salman I will see you again !!
