Desert Safari

Dune Bashing, Desert Safari and Belly dance

We were picked up at the hotel by our Arabian Adventures tour guide. On the way we passed the other hotels to first pick up an American couple and then a Russian girl. Then we made way to the desert. During the way we spoke about protection etc and that there were scorpions in the desert. We finally arrived at the site of the Dubai Desert Conservation where we would be dune bashing.

A first experience with the desert and we will be en route for some thrilling rides over the dunes of the UAE Desert.

We then went for rides up and down, sometimes we even had the impression that the 4x4 wheel drive was going to fall. The drivers deflate the tyres specially for this type of activity.

After Dune bashing we were driven to the Desert Camp where we would be having a series of activities and dinner.

We were given dates as a welcome and offered to buy photos which were shot by the tour agency's photographers earlier on.

We chose our photos and then went to ride the camels put to our disposition.

Dinner was a mix of Arabic and oriental foods and we were seated the traditional Arabic way.

One could either smoke shisha or have a henna tattoo. We decided to do both.

By the time was ending we were already friends with the American couple Marty and Jules.

We enjoyed the bewitching dances of the bellydancer and then went back to the hotel for bed.
