stars walk camp
The company is owned and managed by me, Ahmad Al-Zalabieh. We offer our guests all kind of tours and overnight stay options in Wadi Rum.
Ever since I was a little boy, I dreamed of having my own camp and tour company. As a youngster of 12 years old I started to work with my uncles. First I looked after the camels. Later I worked as a cook in the camp. As my English improved, I started to work as a camel guide. After a while I switched to guide jeep tours, hiking and scrambling tours and trekking..
Over the years I got very experienced in guiding travellers. Providing them with whatever they need to have a wonderful time. And I learned everything that an excellent guide needs to know about the sites and history of Wadi Rum desert. I also spend a lot of time with my grandparents. Often we sit next to the fire, talking and sipping from another glass of Bedouin tea. They tell me a lot of stories; stories about family, Bedouin life, culture and history. They enrich my knowledge in a unique way for which I am forever grateful. To me, it is essential to pass this legacy within our family. And I also wish to share it with the travellers who visit us.
I spent my entire childhood raised in the heart of the desert. I grew up in a traditional Bedouin tent continuing our natural way of life, which has been passed on through my family for centuries. I know every mountain, valley, tree by name and all the secrets that this mysterious, rich land possesses. I have climbed, hiked and walked to the highest and furthest points, acquainting myself with each rock and sand dune, all of which have now become old friends. However like many old friends there are still hidden secrets that exist within them and always new discoveries to be made, each one bringing me such a wonderful delight when I do. The Wadi Rum offers something that no other place on earth can; a sanctuary of true peace, silence and well-being, offering an honest escape for anyone who exists outside of it. I never forget how lucky I am to live here and will never consider leaving my oldest of friends.
