    Is it safe to sleep in the desert? What about scorpions and snakes?

    The Morocco desert camp tent had a door that closed to keep creatures out. We did have an option to sleep under the stars but I would opt for the tent if you are worried about the creatures.

    So Clucsky did your Morocco desert camp tent also have a toilet or was that a separate tent and if so how far away and was it well lit?

    Each of our tents had a small bathroom area right in it. It was well lit and had a real toilet, sink, shower and a space to change clothing. It was separated from the rest of the tent by a curtain.

    I just came back myself from the Club Adventures, Treasures of Jordan, tour and I have to say the Quiet Village Camp in Wadi Rum was great.  There were real beds in the tent with tiled floors and very clean.  There are no bathrooms in the tents themselves but the bathroom is a short walk from the tent.  Give me your email and I’ll send you photos of the Bedouin camp in Jordan where I stayed.

    I’m glad to heat that you liked them. I would love to see it! My email address is clucsky@aaanortheast.com .  I tried to post photos of my tent here but have been having issues. Give me your address and I will forward photos of the camp in Morocco as well.

    Good luck with your FAM application. I would be happy to send you some photos. The Moroccan Desert camp is definitely more deluxe.

    Yes, good luck with your FAM application.  Be prepared to do a lot of walking in Petra.  I must have walked at least 7 miles the first day in Petra between the tour and Petra at night.  The camel ride was a lot of fun in Wadi Rum.  I’ll try to send you some photos of my trip.

    Hope this works.  Highlight of the trip was Petra!

    Unfortunately, the Jordan FAM was full so I might have to just book myself on a regular departure.  I don’t see your photos jcedrone.  I would love to see them especially Petra.  I’m sure that was the highlight and to see it at night would be great.  I did the pyramids during the day but also the Light and Sound show at night when I visited Egypt and that was amazing.  If you could try to email them to me at jan.westercamp@mn-ia.aaa.com that would be nice.  Thanks.

    Here’s a link to a blog on the Jordan trip.  Rachel is pretty eloquent on the beauty of Jordan.  You realize how young the United States after spending time in Jordan.

    Hi jcedrone.  I just started reading these as I am fortunate to be doing the FAM this fall. I saw in one of the pictures some were wearing jackets. I don’t expect to need one, but I am curious if it was cold and when you went.

    I was in Morocco in November. The average daytime temperature was about 70 but it got into the 40’s at night. We all had a fleece or light jacket with us. I would look at the average temperatures before you go.

    Hi kschietinger.  I went on the April 1 trip to Jordan and it was comfortable, in the 60’s during the day but dropped to high 40’s in the evening.  It’s warmer in Petra, the Dead Sea and Jerash, probably in the low 70’s.  In Wadi Rum we definitely needed a light jacket especially during the jeep tour since we were sitting in an open pickup truck bed and definitely cold at night, probably in the 40’s but we were definitely warm in our “tents”.  They were more like cabins.
