Eight Bedouin brothers and one sister in tourism in Wadi Rum. Once upon a time in the year 2008, the 8 brothers started a tourist camp  in the Wadi Rum. The camp was traditional build with the Bedouin 'bait shaar', tents woven with black goat hair. With stairs to heaven to gaze at the stars. The 'Eight Brothers camp tourist' was our start of many beautiful desert tours with very satisfied guests from all over the world. In 2013 the camp name changed to Sun City Camp.
