After a lunch prepared by a local family our Bedouin guides bring us back into the desert for our night out under the bright stars or full moon, an unforgettable experience in the vast desert expansion.

"In my life I visited five deserts, but the most majestic is without a doubt Wadi Rum. Where striking rock formations and endless sand plains flow together beautifully, where the Bedouin culture is still experienced in full authenticity and where a beautiful starry sky embraces you every night. The fact that we could experience this desert so intensely and in-depth thanks to Zo Puur and Sandra Jelly was a gift. You will not get closer to a thousand and one nights in this earthly life."
— Tanja Dierckx, hoofdredacteur PSYCHOLOGIES
"Living in the now takes on an extra dimension in Wadi Rum, Jordan. Magic about this location is that you can feel tiny in that great plain. On the one hand, that puts things into perspective, but at the same time it brings you so close to yourself: who am I, what do I want, what do I need in order to take the next step in my life? Carried by the sound of the wind, we make time for ourselves. This is a desert with a soul and you can feel it in the marrow and bone. Or as Sandra Jelly says: 'The stillness and energy of the desert lead you to a state of deep inner listening.'"

Finally, pamper yourself with mud from the Dead Sea and float in the water to come out reborn.
