Mina - Private Tents
During our Hajj 2016 experience you will be based at the European section of Mina, which is a plain within the bounds of the sanctuary of Makkah. Our advanced tents are around 1.8 miles (3km) away from the Jamarats.
Details of Stay
For 4 out of the 5 days of Hajj, everyone must reside and take rest within the boundaries of Mina. You will arrive at our camps in Mina on the 10th September (8th Dhu al-Hijjah 1436), and will leave Mina on 14th September (12th Dhu al-Hijjah 1436).
It will take approximately 45 minutes to walk from our camp to the Jamarats, and our Hajj facilitators will guide you every step of the way.
All the accommodation within Mina is provided by the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Hajj. Sections are then allocated 10 days or so before Hajj commences.
Please note that in Mina - irrespective of your room occupancy requirements - men and women are segregated, and will reside in separate tents that are next to one another. This is due to protocols adopted by the Saudi Arabaian Ministry of Hajj.
Services & Facilities
The advance upgraded tents option is inclusive with our Hajj 2016 experience, offering some of the best amenities available within the European section of Mina.

On the 22nd September 2016 (9th Dhu al-Hijjah 1436) everyone will spend the majority of the day at Arafah, which is an open plain south-east of Makkah.
Our advance upgraded tents option, inclusive with our Hajj 2016 experience, will see you perform your worship (on this great day) inside an open air-cooled tent within the European section of Arafah. Lunch will be served, with fruits and cold drinks available throughout the day.
The night of the 22nd September 2016 (10th Dhu al-Hijjah 1436) is the only time you will not take rest within Mina. Instead you will spend the night at Muzdalifah, which is an open plain near Makkah.
The Saudi Arabian Ministry of Hajj does not provide any tents in Muzdalifah. This means everyone performing Hajj will need to sleep on the floor!
It is advised that you bring a light sleeping bag to help you spend the night in Muzdalifah.
