There are two ways to stay overnight in Wadi Rum, camping and bed and breakfast. Camping in this mountainous desert, under panoply of stars, is an unforgettable experience. You can choose from “wild campsites”, with minimum facilities, where you can take your own tent, to luxury Bedouin style campsites with all facilities and entertainments. Most of these deluxe sites are outside the protected area near the village of Disi. There is also a permanent campsite in Rum Village with showers, toilets and restaurants nearby and it is possible to stay in a genuine Bedouin tent in the desert. Locations of campsites are shown on the map in Rum map.
There are no hotels in the immediate vicinity of Wadi Rum. The nearest places with a wide selection of hotels are Aqaba and Petra, which take between one and one-and-half hours to reach by car or bus.
