Excellent activity! Our driver Farook was great, he gave us quite the adrenaline rush with driving his 4x4 but we loved it. All the activities listed in the description could be done. Also, buffet was very good. The only advice I can give is to get in touch with the service provider to set the time for the start of the activity. On the Voucher it was written 15.00 for the start and we had to wait 1 hour for them to pick us up. I understand that the activity depends on the sunset but I would have liked to be warned and not have to call them myself not seeing them coming.

The safari is really cool, I was looking forward to it before arriving and it did not disappoint. The dune bashing is super cool, fell in love with the camels and then ended the safari at a beautiful desert camp where we had dinner, drinks and entertainment. Also you can rent quads at the camp, get a camel ride or do some sand boarding. Our tour guide, Rashid, was very nice and very professional. I highly recommend you take this desert safari for a complete experience of the UAE.

Again picked up on time. Guide very nice! The desert tour is not for the faint of heart. Camel farm doesn't have to be, but we got fresh camel milk. The camp is like in a fairy tale, everyone is very friendly and everything you could wish for. You should have cash with you for souvenirs, because they are really worthwhile. The food, camel rides, sand boarding, dance shows all super super nice! A unique experience that cannot be put into words!
