What can you do in the evenings in the Wadi Rum desert?
Maybe you're coming to Wadi Rum to see the desert, ride a camel, or explore the most popular attractions you've seen on Instagram or TikTok. You've probably heard about the stunning views of the stars and sky at nighttime, but what else can you do after sunset in the Wadi Rum desert?

It's delicious! There is meat, vegetables, rice, bread, salad, and much more, all served in the tent, along with the original Bedouin music and dance!
While you're enjoying dinner and the night approaches, your Bedouin guide will be preparing the campfire outdoors. After a long day spent in the desert, it's so nice to sit around the campfire, relax, drink tea, and listen to the stories of the local Bedouins.
