SunCity Camp - Wadi Rum

Wadi Rum, called Valley of the Moon by the Bedouin, is a place of legends. Inhabited for over 2,500 years, it lies on an ancient camel trading route to the Arabian Peninsula. This is a stupendous, timeless place, virtually untouched by humanity and its destructive forces. Here, it is the weather and winds that have carved the imposing, towering skyscrapers, so elegantly described by T.E. Lawrence.

A maze of monolithic rocks capes rise up from the desert floor to heights of 1,750m creating a natural challenge for serious mountaineers. Hikers can enjoy the tranquility of the boundless empty spaces and explore the canyons and water holes to discover 4000-year-old rock drawings and the many other spectacular treasures this vast wilderness holds in store.
