Experience Jordan's largest wadi (or valley) in exclusive privacy and comfort of an authentic Bedouin tent. Sun City Camp is quiet and secluded from Aqaba and the tourist population, surrounded by massive rock formations, rust-colored sunsets, and ancient sands.
Sun City Camp unveils the magical Wadi Rum desert in superior camping comfort. Spend a peaceful evening under the endless desert sky in one of several unique tented accommodations. Overnight in a luxury Bedouin tent, or opt for one of the larger royal suites or spacious family suites. Though you will be occupying an isolated location with picturesque views of the vast Wadi Rum, your stay is not without comforts. Keep refreshed with an ample supply of cool scented towels and local bath amenities. Each tent features completely private restroom and shower facilities, along with a cooling fan and 24-hour electricity. A raised deck outside of each private tent is a nice spot to relax and watch the sun set.
Futuristic and fascinating, the Martian Domes at Sun City Camp are unique to Wadi Rum. The domes feature a series of transparent panels that allow you to see the stars while snuggled up in your bed. Each dome is further enhanced by an ample deck, individual air conditioning, and a private minibar.
The main gathering place at Sun City Camp is a large reception tent, complete with wireless Internet access and plenty of places to lounge. This is where you’ll take your meals too, enjoying heaping platefuls of enriching salads, spiced vegetables, and more fresh fare presented on a buffet. Dinners feature local cuisines and Middle Eastern specialties, perfectly prepared in traditional Bedouin style. “Zarb” is your main dish, a traditional whole lamb that has been roasted within a sand pit.
When you’ve had your fill, relax on luxurious cushions and rugs of traditional Bedouin low seating. Opt for an after-dinner drink or a puff of Shisha while the music of the oud and rababah accompanies traditional folk dances. Torches, lanterns, and candles throughout your camp site make for an even more intimate feel and complete your true Jordanian experience.
