This trip leads us into the heart of St Katharina’s National Park. Far from the noise and hectic of the tourist crowds the „Al Karm Ecolodge“ offers a refuge of piece in a spectacular mountain setting. Day trips in the vicinity of the lodge, either on foot or with camels, include the mysterious bronze age settlements of the Nabateans (whose capital was Petra), hiking in the mountains with a guide or exploring the rare plants and wildlife of the desert.

The ecolodge is designed to minimise environmental impact. There is no electricity except solar-powered showers. Accommodation is in little stone houses with 6 rooms for up to 16 people or outside camping. Guests bring their own sleeping bags.

Al Karm is run entirely by local Bedu of the Gebaliya tribe, whose famous hospitality makes every visit a memorable event. Simply relax and meditate on the secret of the desert in an atmosphere of tranquillity and solitude!
