Located in the heart of the Wadi Rum desert in Jordan, the Mazayen Rum Camp offering guests a surprisingly luxurious experience. Whether you’re looking for adventure, relaxation, or an escape from everyday life, Mazayen Rum Camp has something to offer every type of traveler.

Wadi Rum is a vast desert expanse with open skies and wide open spaces — the perfect destination for those seeking some peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The landscape here is unlike any other, consisting of sandstone mountains, towering cliffs, deep canyons, and rolling sand dunes, all surrounded by endless miles of desert. This striking scenery has been used as a backdrop for many famous movies over the years, including The Martian and Lawrence of Arabia.

The Mazayen Rum Camp itself is a small community made up of several luxury tents which provide comfortable accommodations with modern amenities such as air conditioning, private bathrooms, and electricity. The tents are connected by pathways and provide unrivaled views of the surrounding landscape. Guests can enjoy traditional Jordanian cuisine prepared by local chefs, as well as take part in a variety of activities such as camel rides, jeep tours, sand boarding, and star gazing. The camp also provides cultural experiences such as traditional music and dance performances, guided walks through nearby archaeological sites like the Little Petra ruins, and even belly dancing lessons.

The camp is situated near some of the Middle East’s most impressive sites, such as the ancient city of Petra and Wadi Rum Desert Reserve. Visitors can explore these areas on camel rides or by 4×4 jeeps to get an up close glimpse into life in Jordan’s desert regions. You can also take part in adreneline-pumping activities like sand boarding or rock climbing.
