Wadi Rum fascinates travelers with its majestic beauty and vibrant colors. The desert is beautifully colored in red - from a bright terracotta to deep orange and rich burgundy. The rocky landscape owes its variety of colors to the red sandstone and gray granite.
The Wadi Rum Protected Area is so unique that it has been a UNESCO World Heritage property for more than a decade now. Not only because of its rich history, which can be traced back to prehistoric times. Drawings from this time cover the rock walls of the desert landscape and contribute to the fascination of Wadi Rum. The entire protected area measures 740 km² (comparable to the area of New York City) and is inhabited by several hundred Bedouins.
At the Desert Magic Camp & Resort, we offer you different ways of exploring the desert. From camping to camel riding, jeep tours and hiking with Bedouins, our resort has been set up in the Wadi Rum Protected Area in 2018 and welcomes you for a private Bedouin desert experience. At our resort you will find only 13 studios, each with its private bathroom and 11 with a panoramic view, allowing you to watch the day unfold and the stars during the night from the coziness of your bed and letting the milky way gently soothe you to sleep.
Located in the middle of the desert, surrounded by beautiful rocky mountains which you can discover by climbing during sunrise and sunset as our camp allows for the most beautiful views the desert has to offer.
Ahlan wa Sahlan!
“We welcome you to the Bedouin experience at Wadi Rum Desert Magic, a place where you can enjoy the desert
- its silence, sunrises and sunsets, the night sky, the open view and time standing still.”
- Owner of the Desert Magic Camp
We are located in the middle of the Wadi Rum Protected Area and hence far away from any street or villages. Our location allows you to watch the sunrise and sunset from our resort and the milky way during the night.
We preserve Bedouin traditions, like the traditional Bedouin Zarb for dinner, while providing you with comfort and modern facilities, like our stunning outside terrace where you can enjoy your breakfast, lunch and dinner.
With only 13 tents, each with its own bathroom, our camp is the perfect place to experience the desert at its best - in silence!
A great variety
Apart from the classic jeep tours to discover the Wadi Rum Protected Area, you can do free sandboarding at our camp, hike up the mountain next to us and come along for a night ride to do stargazing.
