The word Bedu comes from the Arabic, Badawi, meaning a dweller of the desert. As a people, they have learned to endure the harsh conditions of the desert and survive its unforgiving climate. Knowing that the desert is no place for fools, the Bedouin treat it with due respect, and are one of the few societies left in this world who live in great harmony with their natural surroundings. The Bedouins’ have a reputation for understanding the animals that they care for, living as they do in symbiosis with their goats, camels or beautiful horses. This understanding is based on the simple fact of mutual dependence, without which no living soul would survive in the desert.
