I stayed at the Nawatef Bedouin Camp for 3 weeks. I found the location to be good for trekking and was a short jump to the village of Dana and the Dana Nature Reserve. Petra is about a 35 minute drive from this camp and town of Shobak (which has banking, drug stores and restaurants) is about 20 minutes away.
The camp is fairly new. It is owned by Ali Nawafleh. The accommodation is simple, single beds off the floor...2 per tent. There are 12 beds all together. The tents overlook the wadi, so your morning view is breathtaking. Ali has made little bird baths around to try and attract birds. The door to the tent can be locked, but I never locked mine and Adel stood sentinel to make sure noone took my stuff.
Toilets are Arabic, showers are cold (in the winter) but Adel will heat up water for you, breakfast is simple, supper is fabulous, location is amazing. I recommend this camp for those looking for authenticity and untouched beauty in a safe, welcoming environment! HAVE FUN!
