Bedouin nomads crossing the Wadi Rum desert, Jordan

If you want to see something like that you might be better of going to Wadi Arabah. Similarly spectacular, slightly more dune-y than Wadi Rum. All the bedouins and other locals prefer to go to Arabah as it is less visited by tourists and there is no ‘entrance’ or anything.
A bedouin in Petra said to me ‘a desert is not a desert if it has a gate to get in’. Unfortunately the bedouins I was staying with were planning to go into Arabah a few days after I left, but I still got to make a tour into Wadi Rum. It’s not that big a hassle, but you DO need at LEAST 2 very heavy duty 4×4’s and people with experience driving them in extremely fine sand. THIS IS NOT EASY, but many Jordanians go to the desert quite regularly and are good at it, so you should be able to find people. The 4×4 club of Jordan is quite active and often makes trips, but I dont know how easy it would be to organise a trip with them.
