Accommodation in Wadi Rum & Trips around  (8 Answers)

Hi guys,

We want to visit Wadi rum and stay there for a few quiet days in a (as far as possible) desert atmosphere.
However, we prefer a small room, nothing fancy but not sleeping in a tent.
Any recommendation for such place ?
I've seen some places on the Web but all seems to be very large ones and nothing felt like being far in the desert...
Any idea ?

Thanks in Advance,

Getting to Wadi Rum  (4 Answers)

Hi to all.
In September I will be staying in Taba (Sea Star Hotel) my wish is to travel to Wadi Rum for the day or even stay overnight.
I have used the border crossing at Taba into Israel a couple of times and a few years ago I took the ferry from Taba Heights on a day package trip to Petra run by my holiday company which I enjoyed very much.
On my visit this time I would like to go from Taba through both the Egypt/Israel border crossing and then through the Israel/Jordanian border crossing, I feel I will be ok during this part of my journey with Taxis ect unless anyone has information to the contrary.
Once through the border and into Jordan what is the best way to get to Wadi Rum? Should I get a taxi direct and then get the same driver to return me to the border later that day?
Can the Taxi driver take me into Wadi Rum? Or only to the visitors centre?
Can I get a trip from the visitors centre into the Wadi for the day or can I get one staying overnight under the stars/camping? Returning to Egypt the following night?
I will be travelling on my own so not sure if this ends up costing much more, I am willing to go by 4x4 or camel into Rum.
I am a keen photographer and this location is on my to do list before I die, everything I have ever read about Wadi Rum makes me shake with excitement so any tips or advice from members will be most welcome.

Alternatives to Wadi Rum  (3 Answers)

Hi fellow travellers

The scenery of Wadi Rum appears spectacular. No doubt, good old Lawrence of Arabia has helped to put it firmly on the tourist map. Has anybody spent some time exploring the Petra - Wadi Rum region and found accessible areas of similar beauty without the bells and whistles of organised tourism: places to which one can take a local bus or taxi, do some hiking and enjoy the sheer beauty of the desert and the local ambiance?

Transport to and from Wadi Rum  (3 Answers)

I am organising to go overnight to Wadi Rum in January 2008 with my family and my friends family. We total nine people. Is it true that it is easier to organise transport through the Wadi Rum guides prior to the tour then run the risk or trying to get a cab or a bus on the day given the number of people involved?

If this is the case, does anyone have an E-Mail address for the Rum Guides, Attayak? I can't seem to get through on their website posting?

Also, any idea on suitable clothing for the weather in the desert, heard it can be freezing? many thanks, Lucy (and families)

Organic Food  (3 Answers)

Where is a good (cheap / fresh) source for organic food near or in Wadi Rum?
We need large quantities, for many people, for a few weeks (not necessarily all at once) for a Rainbow gathering there.

Oh, also a good source for large pots and kitchen stuff would be good, and for cheap cloth + ropes, plastic tarps, large water containers... :-)
