What to wear in Wadi Rum ?

During the day you will move, walk, climb and maybe hike, so the most important is to feel comfortable. In general and for all seasons we advise to wear long sleeve clothes to protect your body from the sun. Also, it is a way to respect our culture, as women and men cover themselves. But of course if you prefer to wear shorts, short dresses, tank tops… feel free, we are used to that and we respect your choice. Then, concerning the shoes, it is preferable to wear close shoes during the day, as the sand is sometimes very warm and some areas are not compatible with sandals, your feet could be injured. For the night, flip flop are perfect if you want to move in the camp or around, if you need going the bathroom…Lastly, a scarf or a hat is necessary in summer to not get insolation. 

What to bring in Wadi Rum for the night ?

In the camp we provide plugs to charge your devices, but we disconnect the electricity during the night. So if you need charging your devices during the whole night and during the tour we really advise you to take power bank or second battery for your camera.

Please note that we dont provide towels, so don’t forget to bring yours.
