Star Walk Camp & tours

Hello!
My name is Ahmed and I run a Bedouin Camp in the desert of Wadi Rum since 2019. Here I work as a Bedouin guide for Jeep Tours, Camel rides and hikes.
Wadi Rum is a place to relax and find peace while enjoying the gorgeous views on the mountains by day and the stars by night. During your stay you will have plenty of time to explore the magical desert yourself.

We currently have two staff members. Our first member is our resident chef, Hani. He prepares all of the food on site each day. Our second staff member is our tech support person, Mohammad. He answers our emails, manages booking, and solves any technical difficulties.

In between assisting us at camp or spending time in the village, there is much to explore. You can spend time stargazing with us after the sun sets, or adventure on your own hike. We love to socialize and are also very interested in exchanging culture and stories. You are also welcome to join us on Jeep tours if space and time allows! Here, you will have the opportunity to live with us as a friend and get to know the Beduin way of life. You are welcomed into our family and will have much deeper insights than as a regular guest. Also, of course, you will be able to learn (or perhaps improve your existing) arabic. Most importantly, though, you will have the opportunity to get to know the Wadi Rum Desert with all its special places. You can accompany our guests on the tours or tag along when we spend our time off.

Couldn’t have asked for a better first experience with Worldpackers.

Spent 1 week in the camp, doing mostly ads and some social media planning - the hours were really fair and you have plenty of downtime to enjoy the beauty of the desert, which was truly the highlight of Jordan.

Ahmad is such a great, friendly & kind host, I felt very welcomed and he taught me a lot about the local culture and their lifestyle. You get to take part in tours, meet a lot of travelers from all over the world and enjoy really delicious food!

Overall one of the best travel experiences, hope to be back!

Amazing experience in Wadi Rum! I could help Ahmad with Google Ads, Google Profile and other OTA's, while living the traditional bedouin lifestyle. Some days I slept in the camp and other days in the Wadi Rum Village.
Ahmad is a really welcoming and friendly person.
Also,I had lots of free time to walk and explore the area.

This was one of the most magical weeks of my life.
From emerging in the desert atmosphere to building relations with the locals I couldn’t ask for a better experience.
I really hope everyone was the opportunity of spending a week like this.

I had an incredible time during my stay in Wadi Rum. Meeting people from all around the world and getting to know the local Bedouins added a unique cultural dimension to my experience. The jeep tours allowed me to explore the breathtaking desert landscape, and the moments of solitude were truly refreshing.
Ahmad, our host, made the trip even more enjoyable with his warm hospitality and flexible work hours. I couldn't have asked for a better host. Wadi Rum offers a perfect blend of adventure and relaxation, and I can't wait to return for another memorable visit 😊

This experience at Wadi Rum was excellent ! Volunteering with Ahmad and his family was pretty straightforward as far as taking new photos for their camp. Also the camping experience while I was there was as well. Would highly recommend !
