The area is inhabited by Bedouin tribes, some of which still sleep in traditional goat-hair tents. The natives also run much of the local eco-tourism economy--research ahead to book a hiking, camelback, or jeep tour with them.

Amazed by the nature here in Wadi Rum. We joined the full day Jeep tour and enjoyed so much in the desert. Have stayed one night in the camp there and was so happy to watch the sunset and also numerous stars at night. During our trip there, we saw the nomads with their sheep occasionally. The formation of the rocks, canyons and mountains was the highlight of the trip. A must go and should stay one night to enjoy the starry night.
Amazing place to be dumbstruck by nature. The red sand is so soft, the rock outcrops breathtaking, and the sun rise unforgettable. Make sure to get a tour of all of the key places and try and enjoy a cup of tea with the locals.
