Overnight Desert Safari

Spending one night in the desert was more than usual camping with an extra portion of sand. They picked us and another couple up in the afternoon. With a 4×4 car we drove into a wildlife reserve to watch wild animals and a falcon hunting show. After the show we drove deeper into desert for dune bashing (=traversing dunes in a daredevil way ;-) ). It was such a thrill, it felt like your car was about to roll over all the time. Of course, we had an experienced driver. After dune bashing we had a short ride on the back of a camel, which brought us to the camp where we spent the night. The next morning we got up early to watch the sunrise while antilopes were passing by. After breakfast our driver, wildlife expert, chef and camp leader drove us back to Dubai. Yes, I know, the whole story sounds like kitsch ;-) but we had a great time…recommended!
