We really enjoyed our trip to Wadi Rum, The staff were very helpful and looked after us well. We stayed out in the desert "Bivouac" style, and although there was a thunderstorm, the experience was phenomenal. Will be sure to visit again.

Hi! I keep reading about "do it but be precautious" about the night at the desert, being a solo woman traveller in her +twenties.. What's the precaution to have about hiring any of these well recommended companies? Isn't safe already? Thanks!

I hope this message finds you well. Basically yes, Insha'Allah, any company with a good reputation in Rum and reasonably long running business, you are and should be absolutely safe anyway. The majority of solo female travellers visit Wadi Rum and don't have any problems. However, any place in the world where people are interacting, there is always a chance a person in a position of trust will be unprofessional. I think there are examples of men behaving inappropriately in every profession, in every part of the world. Cultural differences can compound this problem and cause mis-understandings. Therefore, the advise that you should be somewhat careful is right. Just as I hope you would be in any circumstance when you are alone with a man you do not know particularly well. Really the best way to approach your visit is to choose a Camp with a good reputation, look for shared tours if possible, stay on nights when there are other guests, and have fun but be a little more reserved than you might be with Western male friends. Plan your trip in advance rather than last minute so you can research the company/ guides you want to stay with. You can even ask them what they do to make sure solo female travellers are treated with respect, and what they do to take action should a problem arise.
I hope this helps.

"As this is a desert camp where the 'rooms' are like Bedouin tents, every room is a good one!"
