What to Bring

We will take care of everything that you will need in the desert, but you may want to bring a few personal items along for additional comfort:

  • Sleeping bag (we have plenty of blankets, but some guests prefer their own sleeping bags)
  • Good shoes for scrambling (boots are preferable) and if possible sandals, which will be more comfortable for walking in the sand.
  • Headlamp/torch
  • Sun screen
  • Small bag to carry your camera and personal belongings.


There are no banks or Automatic Teller Machines (ATMs) in Wadi Rum. At this time, we are only able to accept cash payments in Jordan Dinars (JD), so please be prepared by withdrawing money before your trip.

Meeting Point

We will meet our guests at the Wadi Rum Visitors' Centre upon their arrival. We always try to be a half hour earlier than our guests, but if you arrive before us for any reason ask the reception at the centre to call us! If you think that you will arrive at Wadi Rum earlier or later than we arrange, call or text (SMS) us and we will easily accommodate your changes.


If you come with a rental car, you can park it safely next to our office in Wadi Rum village.


We are able to arrange a taxi (or bus, where available) for you from anywhere in Jordan to Wadi Rum and from Wadi rum to anywhere in Jordan at the beginning or end of your trip. Contact us for more information.
