Bedouin Hospitality in Jordan

The Bedouin, are nomadic people who live in the desert. They mainly come from Arabian and Syrian deserts, the Sinai in Egypt and the Sahara desert. The Jordan Bedouins are known for their common sharing culture of camels and goats.

Bedouin hospitality is a big part of the Jordan culture. Whether it is offering black tea or talking about the way the desert works, they are always to help and are very grateful people.

Ali was our great guide through the nomadic lands of Wadi Rum in Jordan. It was an eye opening and grand experience, it was an incredibly magical place.

About Ali: He enjoys camel racing and loves to dress nice. Most of all he is proudest of being a Jordanian Bedouin. He would never trade his life for another, his love towards the tranquility of the desert is too big. Ali tells us about his passion of sleeping under the night sky. He loves the tranquility and the quiet. This is his world.

The younger Bedouin boys were very friendly and helpful. As soon as a camel fell into a water stream, they were more than ready to help out. Their brotherhood bond is very strong, they are Bedouin family.

“Only in complete silence, will you hear the desert.” -Anonymous Bedouin
