A very early morning drive to the desert to see the sunrise. We had a lush time, while we rested on the way down to the desert, as soon as we got to the desert our driver made sure we are awake by doing some fun driving on the dunes. On the way down to the first stop, we saw a herd of Arabian Mountain Gazelles at one of the feeding stations. The breakfast was beautifully prepared in a box, something for everyone, with plenty of Arabian coffee, tea and normal coffee (soft drinks also provided). It just so happened that we had our breakfast right before we could see the sun rising; this made the experience extraordinary. After our lush breakfast and during the beautiful sunrise, we had the opportunity to go sand-boarding; which was a blast. Later, the driver took us on the drive around the sand dunes; which was super fun, like a rollercoaster and we even managed a see some oryxes. At the end we visited the Al Qudra Lakes where there was a bunch of animals. Definitely a must do.

Transfer and tour were great. Very friendly tour guides with spectacular driving skills. We enjoyed the sunrise in the middle of the desert. It was wonderful. The distance to the city was also sufficient, we were really right in the middle. Much was explained about nature and the environmental projects on site.

We were picked up directly from the hotel by the guide, had a rest and then met another couple plus guide for the tour in the desert. The drive through the desert was extraordinary. The guide was great, he always took care of us and we had interesting conversations. Sunrise was great, despite the clouds. We could then go sandboarding while they prepared breakfast for us. Freshly strengthened, we then drove to a bird pond. There was still the beauties of the birds examined. After that it was back to the hotel. Clear recommendation!
