Encampments (Plural) = camping areas
Explanation: Greetings / taHaiya tayyiba wa b3ad..
A suitable English word (usually used in military contexts) for such an area is "encampment" - the place where a camp is established (whether temporary or permanent) and including the tents, cooking areas, place where supplies are stored, and other related facilities.
Mudarab are part of a bedu tribe's "diira" = traditional grazing terority and living (encampment) area.
Details, in the English, about mudarab and diira, are in the book by the late HRP Dickson entitled "The Arab of the Desert." Dickson's experience and detailed research were mostly among bedu confederations (3shaa'ir) in easterm SA, southern Iraq and Kuwait).
Details, in the Arabic, are in the superb series entitled "The Bedu - Who Are They?" (Ar: البدو - من هم) by Dr. Al-Abaadii, published in Amman, Jordan during the 1980s. I can provide publisher data for anyone interested.
Dr. Al-Abaadi's series is extremely detailed and more contemporaneous than is Dickson's earlier work.
