What's the weather like in the desert?
The desert is a place of extremes. During the summer months, day temps reach around 35 celsius and cool off at night to just below 20, with July and August being the hottest months. The winter is cold with day temps between 10-15 celsius and very cold nights. Spring and Autumn are therefore the best places to visit Wadi Rum in terms of weather!
What else should I bring?
- A hat and sunscreen
- Towel for the shower
- Toiletries (eg. body wash, toothpaste, etc.)
- A small backpack or bag to take with you on day tours
- Enough cash to pay for your tours and any transport to and from the village. There is no ATM in Wadi Rum village so make sure you get cash out before you come!
How do I get to Wadi Rum village by car?
If you're driving down to Wadi Rum, you will want to exit the Desert Highway and follow Wadi Rum street until you reach the Visitors centre, or you can type in the coordinates 29°34′39.21″N 35°25′11.15″E. After you've paid the entrance fee (or shown your Jordan Pass) you'll follow the road once again until you reach a parking lot at the FAMILY PARK & RIDE where you can leave your car for free.
What clothes should I pack?
We recommend bringing comfortable, loose clothes that are suitable for adventuring and hiking in that are also cool and breathable — days can get hot in the desert! Sandals/slip on shoes are the best for walking in the sand and you'll also need some warmer clothes to wear at night.
Is the tap water safe to drink?
People in Jordan generally don't drink the tap water. We provide as much bottled water as you need and also have a cold water refill station at camp to cut down on plastic waste if you have your own reusable bottle.
What's the food like at camp?
We'll cook traditional Bedouin breakfast, lunch and dinner for you every day to enjoy. Breakfast is a traditional Arabic brekkie with hummus, eggs, veggies and fruit, lunch is a light spread of Jordanian mezzes and dinner is a traditional Bedouin spread with chicken, potatoes and veggies cooked under the sand. There is plenty of vegetarian and gluten-free options and tea and coffee always available throughout the day in the communal tent.
