ON the left side you’ll find the Jett Bus parking. Please cross the street and you’ll find us waiting for you there!

In both cases the prices are per vehicle (up to 4 people) and per trip.


We can arrange any kind of activity: camel/horse riding, guided hikes, transfers to/from any location in Jordan and day trips. Please have a look at our website for available activities.

You are kindly requested to pay all the activities when you check out of the camp


Bring personal items including TOWELS and a flashlight. Even in the summer evenings can be cool, so bring warm clothing.  The camp provides pillows and blankets with bedding sets, but NO towels. You can bring your own sleeping bag if you wish.

For hiking, you’ll need comfortable shoes, a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen. For camel caravans, don’t forget long pants.

We are in Beidha: only a 15 minute drive away from Petra and a 10 minute walk from Little Petra archeological site (Siq Al Barid)

Thanks for supporting the sustainable community development project for the Ammarin tribe through your stay.  Our camp is in fact the only authentic Bedouin camp in Petra and the only one run by a whole community (no single owners).

Best Regards
