Description

Embark on an unforgettable desert adventure with our captivating camel tour! Discover the awe-inspiring beauty of the arid landscapes as you journey deep into the heart of the desert aboard these remarkable creatures.

Known for their unique adaptations, camels are perfectly suited to traverse the challenging terrain, making them the ultimate desert companions. Camels, with their specially designed feet, effortlessly navigate the sandy dunes without ever getting stuck. Their large, sturdy hooves are perfectly adapted to distribute weight and provide stability, ensuring a smooth and enjoyable ride for our guests. Even in the midst of sandstorms, these resilient animals remain steadfast, allowing you to explore the desert with peace of mind.

You'll witness the incredible bond between man and beast as our skilled handlers navigate through the vast expanses of sand, unveiling the secrets of the desert along the way.

Join us on our captivating camel tour and experience the enchantment of the desert like never before. You'll be immersed in the rich history, fascinating wildlife, and mesmerizing landscapes that define this extraordinary ecosystem. Whether you seek a thrilling adventure or a tranquil escape, our camel tour promises an unforgettable journey through the untamed beauty of the desert.

Book your camel tour today and let us take you on an extraordinary expedition, leaving footprints of memories that will last a lifetime. Discover the desert's hidden treasures and create an unforgettable experience with our renowned camel tour.

The camels we use in our tours are owned by other families from the village. Renting them is their main source of income. The camels are calm, kid-friendly, and well-trained. Please keep in mind that camels move slowly so you will only be able to visit 3-4 sites per day. Please also note that your camel guide may speak very little English.

Located halfway up an imposing mountain, Lawrence's Spring serves as a crucial water source for the Bedouins' livestock. Adventurers can bask in the awe-inspiring view of the desert plain from beneath a fig tree at the spring's summit. Alternatively, explore the foot of the mountain, where ancient Nabatean rock inscriptions offer glimpses into a forgotten past, and mingle with camels congregating around the watering hole. Lawrence's Spring captivates with its natural beauty, historical significance, and vibrant desert atmosphere.

Nestled within Jebel Khazali, the Khazali Canyon boasts awe-inspiring sheer cliffs that soar above the desert sands, rivalling the height of the Empire State Building. This natural wonder, shaped by millennia of elemental forces, offers a cool haven tucked between colossal monolithic rocks. Imagine Bedouin tents dotting the landscape, families finding respite, savouring tea, and children engrossed in play. The canyon walls bear witness to ancient history, adorned with an array of Nabatean, Islamic (Kufic), and Thamudic inscriptions, as well as petroglyph rock drawings, preserving tales from civilizations long past.

The nearby crimson sand dunes provide an exhilarating playground for those seeking adventure. While ascending can be a challenging endeavour, the effort is undoubtedly worth it as a breathtaking vista of shifting sand hues awaits. Take in the mesmerizing display before opting for an exciting descent—whether it's a thrilling run or a playful roll down the slope, the choice is yours. Unleash your inner explorer and immerse yourself in the enchanting world of the red sand dunes.

Our journey leads us to a magnificent rock bridge, inviting you to scale its breathtaking and entirely natural formations. Though climbing entails some risks, particularly due to certain steep sections, the sandstone structure poses no major challenges, granting most adventurers an immensely enjoyable experience. Amidst the vast desert stretching endlessly into the horizon, seize this remarkable photo moment—stand atop the stone bridge, arms outstretched, and let your smile mirror the boundless expanse surrounding you. A wondrous opportunity awaits for unforgettable memories to be captured.

Concluding the tour, our camp awaits, offering a serene setting to unwind and indulge in an authentic Bedouin dinner. As the sun rises, savour a delightful breakfast at the camp before bidding farewell to the enchanting Wadi Rum village, carrying cherished memories of an unforgettable experience.

Where to Ride a Camel in Jordan

Camels have been used by nomadic and Bedouin people for generations. Their ability to walk long hours, store water in their humps and cope with high temperatures made them the perfect working animals for desert peoples. While camels in Jordan still serve as a means of transport and food (camel milk) for the Bedouins, riding camels has also become a popular activity for tourists.

Camels in Jordan

There are various species of camels across the world. About 95% of all camels worldwide are the so-called Camelus Dromedarius , also referred to as dromedaries. Jordan’s camels all belong to the dromedary species, which means they are one-humped camels. Today, there are no longer any wild camels in Jordan. Although you might spot a camel along the highway in some regions, these are domesticated animals that will eventually return to their owners. Camels are at home in the desert regions, thus the southern regions of Jordan.

Camel Riding in Petra

Camel riding is possible in multiple locations across the country. Petra is home to a major Bedouin tribe, owning a large livestock including many horses, goats and camels. Heading to the Treasury of ancient Petra, you will see various camels, often decorated with typical Bedouin fabrics. These make a great photo motive, especially with one of Jordan’s highlights, the Treasury of Petra, in the background. Therefore, if you are interested in getting the experience to sit on a camel and have a great photo motive, Petra is a great place to do so.

Camel Riding in Wadi Rum

If you are looking for the authentic experience of a camel safari , you should definitely head to Wadi Rum . Wadi Rum is Jordan’s largest wadi, consisting of a huge sand and rock desert of 720 km² (278 mi²). Embark on a camel ride with local Bedouin guides to get a unique and authentic camel riding experience in the desert landscapes. Camel tours are available in various lengths. You can choose from a camel ride of an hour, half a day, a full day or even multiple days.

Camel riding: a bucket list experience!

If you want to try camel riding in Jordan during your trip there are two clear options: Petra or Wadi Rum.  Short rides are offered to tourists in Petra and make a nice photo opportunity. But if you want a longer trek, the real bedouin way, you’ll want to plan this experience in the majestic desert of Wadi Rum.  Full day tours with a local bedouin guide are a great way to see some of the highlights inside the protected area.

There’s no question that camels have been prized by bedouin for centuries.  You can see the petroglyphs of camels that abound in Wadi Rum, showing their importance to the nomadic lifestyle.  These are beloved and valuable animals that are well-cared for and carefully trained to accept riders. Lonely Planet travel guide recommends camel rides as an eco-friendly way to explore the desert of Wadi Rum.

The Ships of the Desert

During your visit to Wadi Rum you may see camels roaming freely in the desert, but they are not “wild.”  The bedouin owners often allow them to move about unsheperded, and know where they tend to go. You may even spot a group of camels who are being raised to compete in camel races that take place throughout the region.  A prize racing camel brings a hefty price. Usually the races in and around Wadi Rum are an event for the locals and not promoted to tourists.

Wadi Rum Camel Experiences

Camels were used for millennia as the primary form of transport linking Asia to Europe through the Middle East. In the past centuries shipping and trains have superseded this traditional form of transport. If you want to get a feel for how our world was linked and the mode of transport all intercontinental commerce used until recent times, Wadi Rum is the perfect location to experience this. Wadi Rum landscapes are iconic representations of the arabian peninsula as the junction of the three old world continents, and the are provides a safe, tourist friendly opportunity to gain an understanding of the region. Additionally the area which has received UNESCO World Heritage Listing for its natural beauty is one of the most memorable and picturesque landscapes to undertake this experience.

For multiday tours an additional camel is required for luggage and other equipment.

Camel transport is so significant in the imagery of trans asian trading routes, Lawrence of Arabia’s WW1 rebellion, and Nomadic lifestyle on the Arabian peninsula that it is number 3 on our list of best things to do in Wadi Rum!

WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE OPTION TO TRAVEL BETWEEN THE CAMP AND WADI RUM VILLAGE. THIS GIVES AN AUTHENTIC EXPERIENCE OF TRAVELLING BY CAMEL CARAVAN!

Camel Journey – Village to Camp

This is a one way journey available in both directions and creates a powerful experience of setting off with your camel into the desert, the serenity of the valley where the camp is located provides a perfect constrast to the busy spring on the edge of the village. Travelling either from the busy oasis surrounded by the camels and their handlers ad venturing into the gradually more isolated desert until you reach the camp or inversely setting off from the quiet valley where the camp is located and making your way back towards the busier spring.

We highly recommend this as the best experience for our guests who want to experience travelling by camel, and feel that it provides a much more authentic experience than the alternate round trip options. 

The tour does not include site visits and is intended to provide an experience of travelling through the arabian desert.

The journey between the camp and the oasis alongside the village is between 2 and 3 hours.

Includes camel and guide. 

Price from JOD40 p/p

Short Camel Rides

We offer customised short rides on camel back that allow guests to incorporate a camel ride into a limited time in Wadi Rum.

It is important to note that camels travel slowly and are not an efficient way of seeing the landmarks of the protected area on a regular tourist itineary. These camel rides are rather intended to be a supplementary experience to a 4×4 tour which allows guests to visit the landmarks that are spread across the large Protected Area.

1 hour from JOD15 p/p

2 hours from JOD25 p/p

Half Day from JOD40 p/p

*tours of half day or less do not include meals

Full Day Camel Tour

Camels travel slowly, they are extremely efficient at travelling long distrances, however they move in a slow methodic way and therefore only cover short distances in a day. Muslims from the North-West of Africa travelled months round trip to complete the Haj with their camel caravans. We recommend to our guests 4×4 tours to efficiently see a large number of attractions during a short visit to Wadi Rum, however if you are comfortable to see fewer locations and cover less distance we have tours that offer camel back sightseeing in the protected area for 1 or more days

The 1 day tour incorporates a variety of landmark stops that are nearby on the journey between the camp and the village and are accessible by camel within this timeframe:

  • Lawrence Spring (a year round water source in the valley)
  • Khazali Canyon (including pre-christ Nabatean rock art)
  • Red Sand Dune
  • Khor al Ajram rock arch (natural rock bridge)

Includes: c amels, saddle and riding equipment, lunch and  local Bedouin camel handler and guide.

Options:  This can be packaged with accommodation and other tours

Price from JOD60 p/p

*minimum 2 people

We offer customised multi-day camel tours for days ranging from 2 to 5 days. These itineraries that travel through the Wadi Rum Protected Area visit major attractions along their routes and on the longer journeys stay with the still nomadic herding families living within the Protected Area. The primary objective of these experiences is to provide an opportunity for guests to travel back in time and experience the lifestyle that was prevelant in the region up until the previous century.

These are amazingly unique experiences for guests to travel through the desert on camelback for several days and experience the one time commonplace transport of the Middle East and Central Asia. Each day will revolve around the preparation of the group for transport. Mornings will begin with breakfast followed by preparation and loading of the camels, the group will ride until the heat of the day will force an intermission where camels will be rested and rehydrated while the bedouin and guests will likewise rest, share tea, social and take lunch until the peak heat of the day passes.

Following this the second half of the travel will continue, until dusk where camp will be prepared each night. Various locations and experiences will form the itinerary and depend on the length of the journey but these experiences are primarily intended to allow guests to gain an understanding and appreciation for the camel caravans that were integral to world trade for the past millenia.

Hecktic Travels

Making Friends with the Genus Camelus

Word by Dalene Heck / Photography by Pete Heck

So, my first encounter with camels while in Morocco didn’t go so well .

I was hissed at. I saw teeth in a growly, show-offy kinda way.

But I wasn’t discouraged. I wanted another chance to change my experience and outlook, to hopefully smooth things over between myself and the genus Camelus. Pete and I were set to ride again, this time in the majestic Wadi Rum of southwest Jordan.

Dalene in desert

I was more prepared to face my Jordanian camel, after being surprisingly scorned by his Moroccan cousin. I looked the part – wrapped up in traditional head gear and all. I’m guessing I even sweated off five pounds the previous day as we made our way through Petra , so my new camel couldn’t complain too much about the burden of my load.

He didn’t complain, he didn’t seem to pay me mind at all and was completely indifferent to my presence. He and I were in a caravan of many – a troop of four humans and an entire family of the camelid persuasion. We rode upon the big daddy, his son, and two of his “lady friends”, while a pair of wee four month-old babes followed us the entire way. We headed off into the Valley of the Moon   for tea and to watch the dramatic desert sun set.

I was grateful to have no lingering camel-issues, I wanted nothing to distract me from this :

Wadi Rum, Jordan

Our convoy was a silently smooth ride led by a friendly Bedouin whose playful nature with his beloved camels was so endearing to watch. There was the odd traffic jam when the baby camels would run up to be near their mothers, sometimes almost tangling in the lead ropes that held us all together. Other times they followed at a distance, or playfully chased each other beside us, their frolicking fuzzy bodies casting long shadows on the bright orange of the desert.

Baby camels, Wadi Rum, Jordan

After an hour of riding we stopped, and I helped our guide gather dry branches to make a fire so that we could enjoy a cup of tea while we watched the final moments of the descending sun. Although delicious, the heat of the tea was too much for me, and I refused a second cup. “ La shokran (no thank you), ” I said, in my feeble Arabic.

His response was well beyond my comprehension, but he said it with a large toothy grin on his face. “He said that you are sweet as honey,” Muhammad translated. I smiled (and most probably blushed) gratefully in return.

Bedouin guide, Wadi Rum, Jordan

As the sun’s rays weakened behind the jagged rocks in the distance, we packed up to begin our ride back to camp. My camel, who had been banished away from the others for causing trouble amongst them, watched me carefully as I approached. I reached out to him, and he let me gently stroke his cheek, even leaning into it for a deeper rub.

Had I made a new friend? Probably not, everybody’s got an itch that needs scratching every once in awhile.

But I’ll take it.

I found your blog a few weeks ago and have enjoyed reading it. Gorgeous pictures. I think Jordan just made it’s way onto my “must see” list!

Welcome Adrienne! Jordan should definitely be on your list! 🙂

I decided not to ride a camel but now I wish I had 🙁

Wha? A camel ride is a must at some point! It’s not the smoothest ride, but it’s pretty fun for a short while at least.

Beautiful photos as usual! Riding a camel is always interesting no matter how many times you have done it. They are just strange creatures, but so cute!

They are amazing creatures! It’s incredible what they can do, and I like them even more when they don’t hiss at me.

That last pic is awesome. He looks like he is posing. 🙂

I’ve always liked camels. I begged my mom to let me ride at the zoo. Every. Single. Time. So I was thrilled when Tim told me we’d be doing a camel trek through Wadi Rum.

After our 3 hour ride, raw skin from our pants rubbing, and the scars a year later, we came to the conclusion that long haul camel riding is not for us. 😉

Haha! Well, at least you did it! 🙂

Beautiful pics. Loved your video & those little ones are so sweet. I bet they’d love some green,green grass from home.

The Bedouin man with us said that those branches they were eating are like dessert for them and they loved it!

I don’t know who decided that camels would make a good animal to ride on, but they should seriously be committed to an institution somewhere. Riding on those animals doesn’t look even the least bit comfortable. I mean, I suppose it’s better than walking, but not by much.

It may not be the comfiest ride, but it is pretty smooth! And fun to be up that high!

I almost had my hand bit off by a camel at a petting zoo. His name was Ollie. It was awesome… 🙂

Oh, and great post too! Hoping to get to Jordan and various other parts of Northern Africa soon!

Ollie was probably just hungry! 🙂

I was a bit scared before riding a camel (especvially getting on and off!) but ended up absolutely LOVING it. The only down side is the potential slobber but I urge everyone to try a camel ride. Fantastic photos too!

Haha! Never had an issue with the slobber ourselves…getting up and down is a bit tricky though!

I love your amazing gift for pulling your readers right into your adventures with you, and the video made it even easier to share in. Great post and amazing photos as always – such rich colous and textures – especially like the camels legs over the rippling sands 🙂

Thanks so much Hannah, that’s my favorite photo as well!

just found your blog,must i admire what you did to travel the world,very few can make that decision,i look forward to see the travels through your eyes and share your experiences.am still wondering how you made such good friends with your camel…or maybe it saw you sweet as honey as its owner 🙂

Thanks Joy! Maybe that was the secret. 🙂

Best post on your site, no question. You can only go down from here. Or you can keep writing posts on camels and keep going up 🙂

We’ve peaked? Dammit! Oh well, had to happen sometime. 🙂

Awwww…. “frolicking fuzzy” baby camels. They look so sweet and loveable!

They were my favorite part of the trip. 🙂

That is some epic camely goodness – great photos as always 😀

As an aside, if you ever want an insight into the mind of the camel, I can recommend Terry Pratchetts book “Pyramids”. It explains a lot 😉

I will definitely check out that book. Thanks Laurence!

Totally awesome photos. Those camels are massive posers! I rode one in Dubai and found it pretty unnerving how much they wobble. I also drank its milk immediately after milking. I wouldn’t advise that!

Thanks Arianwen. I’ve heard that camel milk is quite tasty, although, now I’ve heard not immediately after milking 😉

While in Spain for a study abroad program, we took a day trip to Tangier. At the beginning of the day our guide told us we would stop to ride camels, which of course excited us. But when we arrived, it turned out “ride” really meant “sit on for just long enough for your friend to snap a picture.” They were still cool to see though. I’m glad you had a better time with this one than the previous time. Amazing photos!

Thanks Ali and Dalene was quite pleased that she made a friend this time.

It must surely have been one great experience to be on a joyride on one of those beautiful lovely camels. These camels seem a bit different to those I have seen here in India though, these are much more furry… A beautiful post:)

I can’t find enough ways to love this post! It must have been an incredible experience.

Baby camels are beyond adorable!!!

And that last photo… wow. Looks like an awesome experience!

They were adorable, always racing to get in front, then falling behind because they were playing or eating. So cute. Thanks Amanda!

I’ve seen a lot of posts about riding camels and by far, you guys have the most beautiful photos.

Glad you were able to have a non-spitting, non-grumpy camel this time. 🙂

Wow, thanks Cheryl! I’m happy I had a happier camel too! 🙂

I so wish I could have been there with my camera. What an adventure!!! Great photos, too.

The babies are adorable – so fluffy! But when I managed to tear myself away, I fell in love with the next picture. Really great shot, guys!

Thanks so much Emily!

LOVE these pictures! The one of the camel baring its teeth made me laugh – and not ever want to anger a camel!

Thanks Gina, that photo makes me laugh every time.

As usual your pics are beautiful and the camel article halarious. Love reading your blog! We rode camels in Australia and the one behind my husband kept biting him in rear-end. Probably because we had just eaten camel at a coctail/tasting before the ride (I think he smelled it on us). Did you have any reservations or fear about being in Jordan with all the turmoil in the middle east right now? I would really love to go, but with anti-american sentiment so high, I’m a little apprehensive. Did you experience any problems with that?

Hi Susan, we had absolutely no reservations or fear about going to Jordan. We knew there were troubles in some of the neighboring countries, and we asked our guide if any of these conflicts had spilled over into Jordan. The answer was simply “no”. In fact Jordan is a country where many people come to for refuge.

And we certainly did not feel any Anti-American sentiment. We are often mistaken as Americans and we were welcomed wherever we went. The people are some of the warmest folks we have met. Now it is up to us to spread this word and to try and break down any hesitation people have for visiting this area of the world.

Mm stunning shots. I’ve always wanted to do the Lawrence of Arabia thing in Wadi Rum. I have leftover camel issues after an experience in India but I’m nearly ready to give it another go.

Gorgeous photos! I’ve always wanted to ride a camel. Not sure when that day is going to come or where it’s going to be, but this post is giving me some ideas… so little time, so many experiences to be had!

Thanks Ashley. I agree with you that there is so little time, we often say we are the slowest travelers in the world, and we have so many experiences left that we want to do. If only they can make a life “pause” button… I hope the day comes when you can ride a camel. It is a lot of fun being up so high in the desert.

I love camel riding…. and I just love the cute little babies!

Our Clients & Testimonials

Jordan Horizons Tour Company is Awsome! "We want to let everyone know that this company's customer service is wonderful. We had booked a Tour to "Petra" during a cruise. Unfortunately due to Corona Virus closures our trip was cancelled at the last minute. We contacted JHT to let tell them of the cancellation and requested a refund. Working with Andrea and Mohamed made things move smoothly. Even though the company was overwhelmed with other cancellations we received a full refund in a timely manner. We will certainly use this company when we get our cruise rescheduled." Terry R., TripAdvsior
Excellent, honest company during virus crisis "for a private tour with guide to Petra. We were already in Dubai when USA requested citizens come home immediately or be quarantined in Europe. We were touring Middle East and ending in Amsterdam. Of course, plane tickets had to change and we returned home. JHT was so kind to return our deposit without our requesting. That is sign of excellent company. Andrea and staff helped us immensely plan our tour. Thanks again and we are planning for next year and definitely we will do a ditto of this years plan but with extra days! Thanks again and Inshallah next year!" MoghaniALABAMA, TripAdvsior.com
Holiday "We had an amazing trip! We felt relaxed a looked after. Thank you to our driver Romi Badarneh. He was not only a driver, he also took care of us, made us feel welcomed and happy. He did above and beyond to ensure that we are feeling comfortable. We would recommend to travel to Jordan with this company. Ask for Romi" Gitana, TripAdvisor.com
Wadi Rum-Petra-Amman-Dead sea "We were really excited with our choice to book the in land activities with Jordan Horizon Tours. We were a company from 5 friends from Greece and Romi the driver made our trip excellent. Romi made us feel safe through our road trip and he deserves special thanks. You have to choose him if you decide visit Jordan. His driving skills are great, we had interesting conversation through travelling and he find us exceptional traditional spots for shopping and to try Jordan traditional cuisine. Generally it is a high standard company and the can create your schedule as you wish. We met Wadi rum, Petra, Dead Sea and Amman in 3 days!!! Thank you very much! A must go experience!!" John (the_Locophysio), TripAdvsior.com
Perfect Tour "Thank you to Andrea at Classic Wadi Rum Tours for contracting Jordan Horizons Tour! Our border crossing from Eilat - Aqaba was very quick and easy with a guide. Our driver Faed was great - he took us to Wadi Rum, then Petra, then to Amman. Having a private driver/tour not only saved us time, but he got us quickly through checkpoints, ordered us food, bought us tickets, and connected us with local tour guides (in Wadi Rum & Petra). Kimd Ahlgren, Tripadvisor.com
Wonderful experience "Excellent arrangement of the trip, very professional and kind driver, high quality of the local guide in Petra (speaking surprisingly good Italian!) and of the lunch (delicious!). Absolutely wonderful jeep tour of the Wadi Rum with an amazing guide. Last but not least, great customer care from the booking via email to the absolutely wonderful before and after our trip, always careful and supportive. We will surely ask JHT to organise the trip. Highly recommended!!" Claudia R, TripAdvsior.com
Excellent experience! Would recommend to everyone. "Jordan Horizons set the bar high from the start. Their professionalism is unmatched. Andrea helped us to organize a custom tour for our short stay in Jordan (4 days) at the last minute because our cruise ended up getting cancelled. Hisham (our driver) met us at the airport and took care of us very well for our entire stay. He was super friendly and informative, provided us with water, coffee and tea throughout our journey. He took excellent photos of us, and pointed out views/monuments throughout our trip which helped us capture our valuable memories. Mymapstoexplore, TripAdvisor.com
Petra and Wadi Rum Private Tour from Aqaba Port "This was a day we looked forward to and the company, guide, and drivers did not let us down. We were a party of 4 and had planned a day to see both Petra and Wadi Rum. Making reservations online was very easy and the company was very responsive to all of my questions prior to scheduling the day long tour. We were met right as the instructions said at the port and met our driver Youssef who drove us to Petra. He was very good about telling us about his country and things we saw along the way. Mary L., TripAdvisor.com
Blown away by the hospitality and kindness of Jordanians "This trip has been very unique and exceeded our expectations in different ways. From vast landscapes to a narrow siqs, from beautiful sunsets to a beautiful night skies, from deep valleys to high mountains and from cities to a local Bedouin camps, everything was mesmerising. Both Hisham and Suleiman are our friends now and we are happy to have come across these two beautiful souls. Inshallah we will meet soon again." Ronald D., favthemes.com

Camel tours in Israel, Jordan and Egypt. Trips in Eilat Mts, the Negev desert, Egypt, Sinai and the Jordanian deserts

"The waste places of the earth, the barren deserts, the tracts forsaken of and given over to loneliness, have a peculiar attraction of their own. The weird solitude, the great silence, the grim desolation, are the very things with which every desert wanderer falls in love." The Desert / John C. Van Dyke 1901

Video  of camel tour in the sand stone area of Sinai These itineraries are part of a wider selection of tours. All of our tours can be adjusted to suit individual requirements. Read what our clients had to say about their desert experience with us.

Eilat Mts. And The Southern Negev 4 Days Camel Tour DAY 1: Arriving at the small village of Shaharut we are welcomed by the locals in their huge Arabian tent known as 'The Khan' (a lodging tent for desert travelers), it is laden with mattresses and carpets for oriental comfort and enjoys what are probably the most breathtaking views in the whole of the Negev. Here we enjoy desert hospitality while final preparations for our tour take place; we are introduced to our camels and by sunset enjoy a short camel tour along the cliffs of the Arava (rift valley). Returning to The Khan by dusk we enjoy our evening meal and a briefing on the upcoming tour days before settling for an Arabian night on the mattresses of The Khan. DAY 2: Following breakfast we pack our belongings and equipment into our saddle bags and board our camels. We set off from Shaharut along a picturesque camel track that takes us through the wadis of Isaron, Zugan, G'dera and Tse'alla. Following sunset we reach the Well of Milhan - (an ancient well restored during the British mandate). Here we set up camp for the night under the desert skies. Approx. 15 km is covered on this day and camp is 650m above sea level. DAY 3: From Milhan well we continue south to Mt. Berekh which, at 850m above sea level, is the highest in the area. We walk through Metek Creek where we find colorful rocks of gypsum crystals. This route takes to Mt. Berekh's fantastic views over the famous Timna Valley, site of the world's first copper mines. We continue until we reach Mt. Bosmat where we set up camp. Approx. 12km covered on this day and camp is 800m above sea level. DAY 4: From Mt. Bosmat we head to Wadi Eteq and the Eteq Canyon. Year round rock pools within the canyon make this area a popular spot for wildlife. The more adventurous participants can, with the aid of the ropes and ladders fitted to the canyons walls, explore the hidden beauty of the Eteq canyon. From here our camel voyage continues up the Eteq Ascent to the Negev Plateau. Here we enjoy our final rest-stop that marks the end of our tour, from here we head for the main road and are met by the vehicles that will take us us back to civilization.

Camel tours in the Sinai, negev & Jordanian deserts

Sinai 7 Days Camel Tour Focused in Eastern and Central Sinai. Difficulty level - from easy to difficult, according to request. Assisted by friendly Bedouin camel handlers we board our 'Ships of the Desert' and in the true spirit of desert exploration we begin our adventure into the depths of the Eastern Sinai. During this desert voyage we explore sandstone canyons, ride over majestic sand dunes and leisurely tread ancient camel routes. We visit Bedouins in their camps and 'hermit' Bedouins who for decades have chosen a solitary existence deep in the heart of the desert. We visit the Rock of Inscriptions (some of which are 2000 years old) and Nawamis, an ancient tribal cemetery (4000BC). We enjoy the remarkable views from the summits of the beautiful Sandstone Mountains including Jabal Matamir and Jabal Birga. In the enchanting oasis of Ein Hudra and Ein um Ahmed we rest by the water and stroll through the shady orchards. The tour includes two days exploring Mt. Guna whose ever-changing views and incredible dawns and sunsets make it one of the most picturesque mountain routes in the whole of Sinai. This tour combines leisurely camel riding with walking and plenty of breaks for you, your camel and our tea worshiping Bedouin friends. We camp under the starry desert skies and/or enjoy the warm Bedouin hospitality in their camps. Customers' review about the Sinai camel tour    Hi Ellen . Here are my comments about our 5 days camel trip to the Sinai.  Let me also say that Desert Eco Tours did a marvelous job of organizing what is a very complicated trip internationally and politically and culturally.  I'm very impressed, by the vision and execution.  Is there any way I can send a letter of thanks to Rashid and Amer? It's impossible  to adequately describe our amazing 5-day camel trip through the sandstone area of the Sinai.  The trip far exceeded my expectations, which were quite high.  I wanted a deep and authentic experience of this desert and I got that and so much more.  We slept under the stars, ate delicious melons and stews and bread freshly baked in the coals of the fire, drank tea and talked around the fire, and rode and led and helped round up the three sweet camels, each of which had an amusing  personality all its own.   Truly, every moment of those 5 days was exhilarating.  I was awestruck, on every level, by the silence, the vastness and variety and majestic beauty of the landscape, the clarity of the air, the intense blue of the sky, the long history it bears witness to,  the astounding display of stars every night, and the warmth. gentleness, humor, graciousness, and expertise of our Bedouin guides.  Rashid and Amer guided us to a different area every day, each one more beautiful than the last--and not once did we see a vehicle or even another human being after we left the Bedouin community at the ancient habitation of Ein Hudra. What made the trip as relaxing as it was stimulating was that we knew we were in the best of hands; we could not have had better guides for this area or better hosts anywhere.  As we traveled and ate together, Rashid and Amer taught us about the Sinai's medicinal and other plants, its animals and birds, its history, and the ways of its people.  They were gracefully attentive to every nuance of our needs and comfort and safety and enjoyment, while respecting our privacy.  My only regret is that I could not stay longer than 5 days.  I would happily have traveled with Rashid and Amer for 2 weeks or more.  As soon as I can, I will return to the Sinai to explore more of its eternal beauty and freedom of the heart with Rashid, Amer, and their camels.

Camel tours in Wadi Rum- Jordan

Jordan- Wadi Rum 4 Days Camel Tour Difficulty level - from easy to difficult, according to request. Exploring the whole region of the legendary Wadi Rum upon the most ancient and by far the most enchanting mode of desert transport, the camel. With its leisurely pace and gentle swing this great creature carries its rider and load over sand and mountain, through canyons and wadis, whilst barely seeming to notice their presence. Despite ungrounded stigmas to the contrary, the camel is in fact a quiet placid animal (although occasionally stubborn) whose harmonious relationship with its handler often lasts for a lifetime. In this region particularly, camels have for thousands of years been living with the Nomadic Bedouin and are entirely domesticated. Escorted by its Bedouin handler (who will show you how to ride your camel properly and comfortably), your camel will carry you on the desert voyage of a lifetime, through this mystical and magnificent land. Where, since ancient times, its rare visitors have witnessed in awe, its timeless and splendid wonder. During this voyage you will meet with local Nomadic Bedouin and witness their unique way of life. You will walk through desert valleys and canyons, rarely explored since the dawning of time and visit the stunning Nabatean City of Petra. Our evenings and nights are spent around a campfire under the astonishingly clear skies laden with millions of brilliant stars which, since legends began, make the desert nights the most magical of all.
