Are you looking for an absolute unique experience during your holiday in Jordan? Then spending the night at one of these luxury desert camps should definitely be on your itinerary.
Glamping in Jordan has become one of the hippest things to do. But to tell you the truth there are some real stinkers out there and it’s also not that easy to get an overview of the best luxury desert camps in Morocco. With this list you’ll be all set to have an incredible experience!
Watch the sunset from one of the nearby dunes, go on an exploration tour of the desert and sleep underneath a sky full of stars. Wadi Rum is one of the most beautiful places in Jordan and will have you in complete and utter awe as soon as you arrive.
It’s not possible to drive within Wadi Rum yourself, there is no actual road and you would get lost pretty much immediately. Instead all you have to do is park your car at the visitor’s centre and someone from your hotel will come and pick you up!

5. Zeina Desert Lodge
Zeina Desert Lodge is a brand new property and out of all of the glampings in Wadi Rum this is my favorite one. I love the fact that you stay in a house like structure and I love the interior design of the suites.
Every suite also comes with its own hammock where you can relax and dinner is served outside on the terrace, overlooking the majestic red rocks of the Wadi Rum desert.
