Sabah

Sabah

My name is Sabah Atayek Aid, I am a bedouin from the tribe of Zalabieh. I am 53 years old, and I have always lived in the desert. I grew up in Wadi Rum before the setting of the village. I have spent my whole life walking on the Bedouins Roads, hunting the ibex. I really know the desert “like my pocket”, and I love it deeply.

When Wilfried Colonna and Tony Howard first came in Wadi Rum in the 1980’s, we became friends, and I showed them dozens of Bedouins Roads (one of them, that I opened in Jebel Khazali, is called after me “Sabah’s Road”). We opened together many climbing roads. I am the first Bedouin guide of Wadi Rum ever.

I was the first to go to England to be trained as a mountain guide.

I have 2 licences climbing guide and rescue in the mountain

Climbing in the mountains is still my passion, and I will be your guide specifically for Climbing, Scrambling on Bedouin Roads.

I am a Bedouin from the tribe of Zalabieh, the eldest son of Sabah. I am 33 years old. I was born in the desert and have always lived here.

I have been working with the tourists for more than 15 years, and I still enjoy sharing my culture with them. I speak good English, and will even surprise you with a few words of your language, that I learned from other tourists! I love to tell stories at night, around the fire, after a good diner. I can talk for hours about our traditions, our life and culture.

I am also a good climber, up to 5+, and I know all the Bedouin Roads. I went to the French Alps a few years ago, where I practised climbing for 1 month.
