Very interesting discovery of the desert and life in the desert.

The organization was perfect, our driver-guide came on time to pick us up at the hotel. We really enjoyed the rodeo in a 4x4 vehicle on the dunes, the camel ride, the sunset between the dunes, the traditional meal, the local dances, and these moments of serenity without light in the starry night.

Mandatory, the true spirit of the Desert.

A spectacular day, without this, a trip to the UAE does not make sense. Adrenaline, spirit of the desert .. The best part is when the sun goes down and when at the end of the night the camp lights are turned off to enjoy the silence and sky of the desert. Our very friendly MUNAT Guide and always concerned about us. VERY GOOD

A must do in Abu Dhabi and if you are lucky enough to have Nisam as your driver you will have a fantastic time.
