We had the chance to ride camels from the camp into Rum village, but as it would have taken 2 hours or more we declined the offer, although in retrospect perhaps we should have done it for the experience. Camel rides in the desert are offered by the camps, together with (unbelievably to my mind) walking tours of the desert. Why you want to do this in 30-50 degree heat, when ...
