The Rock Camp
“I’m at Rock Camp, a Bedouin camp in the middle of the mountains near Little Petra in Jordan. Something magical, something spiritual lingers at this boho place.”
The Rock offers fifteen authentic Bedouin tents and fifteen luxury tents. The camp is situated between the mountains of Little Petra and near to the entrance of a beautiful gorge which leads to an ancient village of the Nabateans. With nothing in the area except for occasionally a sheep shepherd with his flock, you find yourself in the middle of nowhere. Literally. And it’s perfect. Enjoy a traditionally cooked Zarb, a bonfire, traditional music, red mountains and amazing sunsets at this perfect boho place.
Little PetraSiq al Barrid (the cool siq), or Little Petra, is an intriguing place: a trading and supply suburb of Petra itself, tucked into its own sandy little canyon some 8km from Petra itself, entered through a ludicrously narrow bottleneck one camel wide, it has charm rather than grandeur.
