Wadi Rum Discovery with Ayesh
by Frank and John
Having just returned from a 10 day independent tour of Jordan with its wonderful history and charming people - a night spent in the desert at Wadi Rum was the highlight.
We booked via www.wadirumdiscovery.com - Ayesh
is a Bedouin who's family have lived in the area for many years. In fact we met many of his brothers, cousins and family whilst there - everyone seemed to know Ayesh!
He was a charming and hospitable host who made sure we saw the best of what the desert had to offer.
Ayesh can arrange a trip tailored to your needs - 4x4 ride, mountain climbing & trekking.
Having read other reviews about the noise from other camps and even from the roads - the experience at Ayesh's camp is a world away from all of this, and you will not hear another sound......... we had the luxury of being his only guests that night and felt incredibly privileged.
Lying in the desert looking at the stars is a truly magical experience that you will never forget.
The camp, whilst basic, offered far more facilities than we expected:
there are toilets and showers
(which we didn't' t use due to water being such a precious resource in the desert).
The food - cooked by Ayesh - was delicious and plentiful which we ate around an open fire.
I would highly recommend Ayesh if you want to experience the true charm of a real Bedouin.
