We had a wonderful time at the Bedouin Expedition Camp! Eghab arranged for us to be picked up at the Village Entrance, where we then left our car and hopped into the open-air truck for our long ride into the middle of nowhere. During our drive to the camp, we were astounded by the vast desert and rocky landscape, and the roaming desert camels! Everyone, staff and guests, was kind and welcoming at the camp. We enjoyed watching the sun set behind the rocks, and then eating a deliciously cooked Bedouin dinner. After dinner, we all sat around the fire and Eghab talked to us about life in Jordan. When he left us his father, Zidane, came and continued the evening with us. While the tents were comfortable, we asked Zidane if we could sleep under the stars, to which he responded that that was his favorite place to sleep. So we pulled out mattresses and blankets and slept under a sky of a million stars. The breakfast the next morning was delicious, and we ended our Bedouin experience with an enjoyable jeep tour and camel ride. Wonderful camp. Highly recommended.
The showers were a bit scary at night, as several of the lightbulbs were out. We were also a little disappointed that our jeep tour was in an enclosed vehicle rather than an open-air one, and that our tour guide didn't tell us much history about the sites we visited. Other than that, things were great!
