Following in the footsteps of adventurous explorers of yore or wanting to experiment with something exciting and unique and create an adventure of your own particular type, there is scope in the vast Arabian desert for every taste, across the vast expanse of sand and space!
An exciting UAE Desert Safari, which provides the seeker of adventure and excitement with a melange of options to explore the vast desert spaces and discover their multi-faceted potential, also brings to you various permutations/combinations of the Abu Dhabi Desert Safari.
The Abu Dhabi Desert Safari, as a very viable independent component of the UAE Desert Safari, takes you on a voyage of discovery, excitement and enjoyment that you are not likely to forget!
The Abu Dhabi Overnight Desert Safari (4WD)- 3.30 PM to 9.00 AM – a not-to-be-missed experience, departs Abu Dhabi at approximately 15:30 p.m. in the afternoon and heads east towards the desert of the Nizwa region for an unforgettable and thrilling drive through some of the highest and most challenging sand dunes in the UAE in one of our Toyota Land cruiser 4×4’s which has been especially modified for the desert. After some adrenalin filled Dune Bashing for 30- 40 minutes, a short halt at an interesting Camel Breeding farm and some stops for striking photo opportunities and refreshments at more spectacular dunes, watch an awesome sunset over the rolling hills of the desert.
Then head for the traditional Bedouin style campsite in the middle of the desert. Where you put down your roots for the night, like the ancient Bedouin tribes.You can ride a camel, sand board, smoke the traditional hubbly bubbly, or simply just relax with your favorite beverage from the well stocked bar. After a sumptuous 3 course BBQ dinner – vegetarian fare is available upon prior request – a scintillating belly dancer will provide genuine Arabic entertainment to round off a truly memorable and unforgettable Arabian Desert experience; sleeping bags and blankets are included in the overall cost, as are unlimited refreshments comprising endless cups of coffee, tea, Arabic coffee, soft drinks and dates. Alcohol is not included but “Shisha” or the traditional Arabian water pipe is. With exotic Arabian costumes for photographs, tracing fascinating henna patterns on your hands or feet, tent, pillow and blanket for an overnight stay are also part of the cost.
With an early breakfast the next day as part of the plan, departure is soon afterward, at 8.30 in the morning. So the excitement filled Desert Safari adventure which had commenced the previous day at any pick-up point in Abu Dhabi between 3 and 4 p.m. comes to a fitting finale by approximately 9 a.m. the next day.
