This is a wonderful camp in the Wadi Rum Protected Area near Aqaba in Jordan. First you absolutely must see Wadi Rum, it is beautiful. This camp is in a perfect location nestled between some rocks that are perfect to climb up to watch the sunset. The traditional food is served buffet style and is very good, and as a Western visitor I loved seeing them pull it up out of the desert oven. You will hear coyotes during the night so bring ear plugs if you need to. The camp is very clean, and has a new bathroom / shower facility. I unfortunately got very sick the first night there (not because of the camp), and had a chance to really use these facilities. They had a driver take me into town to get treatment at the clinic, and when I returned they gave me a special tea for my stomach to help. Ali took the group I was traveling with on a hike to the Jebel Burdah Rock Bridge which I also highly recommend as it was a great experience for them. I whole heartedly recommend staying here if you get the opportunity to visit this area.…
I recently stayed at Rainbow Camp, I must say it exceeded my expectations. I had a great time, the staff was very helpful. We also had one of their guides, Ali, take us on a hike to Jabal Burda (Burda's Arch). Ali was incredible and so patient with our group. The camp was nice and clean. The whole experience for the two nights was amazing and I will return.
Highly recommend… very nice place, great location, people are great Food is good… friendly people.. you can walk around, watch sunrise and sunset …. Beautiful If you planning to go to Ram this is your place
A pretty much faultless review from me for a change. Fabulous location means the team who run this place wouldn’t need to try too hard but you get full strength Jordanian hospitality at all times. Even though you’ve paid for your own tent (more like a quaint little cabin) consider moving your mattress and bedding up onto the ledge above the camp to sleep under the stars. Also consider an early morning camel ride for the full desert experience. In the sometimes searing heat of the desert this is an oasis of chilled.
My son and I spent a couple of nights there last week. Nothing to brag about the property itself but you get value for the dinars spent...the shared washrooms were clean..with my son being tall, they moved us to a bigger unit...the location is just perfect as you walk up the rock to amazing view of the valley and sunset...the opportunity to chat with other guests around the fireplace in the evening was great and the shisha (for 5 JD) was icing on the cake...dinner is the main meal and the best of the three....as we had our 4X4, they helped us map out the various places to visit in Wadi Rum. Soliman (the owner), his brother (Ali) and nephew (forget his name) were very nice and welcoming.
