Unfiltered Bedouin Experience

Brace yourself, because this is one heck of a cultural adventure! This is your chance to get close and personal with the nomads of the desert.  This is not a human safari, this is the real deal!   With this hospitality experience you will go deep into Bedouin territory; the desert that this ancient nomad culture calls home. The Bedouins have lived in the Middle East before it was called “Middle East” and they’ve preserved their traditional lifestyle over the centuries. Because the Bedouins are a fairly isolated community, the road to making this tour was a long one. After years of hard work and a lot of communication, we received the blessing of the Bedouin tribes, and started the best eco-tourism project in the Middle East.    Please note that the minimum group size for this experience is 6 people.
