We are open all year round 24 hours a day.
We are a TRADITIONAL Bedouin camp so you’ll have comfortable beds, very clean toilets, delicious homemade food, amazing landscape and experiences, the legendary Bedouin hospitality, but no luxury or facilities such as king size beds, air conditioning or hairdryer.
Homemade traditional food
The women of the Ammarin Tribe are willing to make you taste traditional Bedouin food.
You will enjoy meals according to a set menu including a main course - such as Mansaf, Maqlouba, Kabsa, Zarb- and side dishes. We alsways have some vegetables and in winter time we have hot dishes such as lentil soup.
Please specify when booking if you are vegetarian or have allergies. If you are gluten free, please bring your own wraps/bread and we will use these for you.
Bedouin tea is included and complementary. Mineral water is served for free with all meals; if you need some more, bottles of water are sold for 1 JD.
Melas times are set: please don't ask us for any change as we don't have a restaurant on site: we bring food from our Bedouin village.
You can enjoy a traditional meal at the camp even if you don't sleep here. Just book it in advance.
