I recommend camping at Wadi Rum. You can find many camps to stay in. In my case I stayed at the Carvan Camp with the Meditation Center. It is a nice camp, but it is not located in the heart of Wadi Rum so I would defiantly check out another camp in my next visit.

This is how a camp would look like:

It is definitely reddish but also brownish golden beige and a variety of skin colors.   Wadi Rum WadiRum Jordan VisitJordan Camels Sand Bedouin Tea Camp Hike Mountain Blog TravelBlog Sand Feet Wadi Rum WadiRum Jordan VisitJordan Camels Sand Bedouin Tea Camp Hike Mountain Blog TravelBlog Sand Feet Wadi Rum WadiRum Jordan VisitJordan Camels Sand Bedouin Tea Camp Hike Mountain Blog TravelBlog Sand FeetThe sand is super soft, walking barefoot is not to be missed.

You can take your own 4by4 or ask your camp for the Jeep ride. Wadi Rum WadiRum Jordan VisitJordan Camels Sand Bedouin Tea Camp Hike Mountain Blog TravelBlog Sand Feet Offroad Jeep Wadi Rum WadiRum Jordan VisitJordan Camels Sand Bedouin Tea Camp Hike Mountain Blog TravelBlog Sand Feet Offroad JeepCamels are Bedouins best friend.
