When my sister mentioned that they are planning a desert trip, I also joined them. Omg..it was a lifetime experience. It was really cool being in that sandy land. The activities we did were really funny. My favorite one was dune bashing. I had never done this ride previously. Though I was little scary at first like I was holding tight on the handles, it turned into fun quickly. Al khayma camp was more like reading an old Arabian story. It was more luxurious than ever expected. One put henna tattoo on my hand, how talented artist, no doubt! It was lovely to sit and see how fast they are putting designs on hands. Falcons were amazing. I was excited to hold this bird on my hand. Our guide took crazy snaps. If you are a bird lover, do it definitely. Camel riding was superb; that experience ranks high on my list. I got enthralled by the belly dancing. Not to mention the dinner! Truly an experience not to miss.

A highly executed trip to Dubai because every one of us wants to explore this location. The desert safari pictures from different sources increased my level of enthusiasm. Everything was nice and all family members are eager to know about desert life. Everything was special for us and it was the first time experience, for us the most interesting part of this tour was the Al khayma campsite experience. Tasting BBQ and other Arabian dishes are good enough to keep in memory. We got a VIP treatment from the tour authorities thanks for your concern and we will come back to Dubai, no doubt we will opt for you guys!!!

My husband and I had a beautiful experience in Abu Dhabi desert and it was a life-changing experience. Definitely, I will carry all the memories of the campsite for the rest of my life. I felt that the Bedouin campsite is specially created for us and we discovered all the truth relating to desert life.

For a long time I was longing for this journey to Dubai, the only one destination I was looking for is desert. Really my intension is to make my day completely an adventurous one and I had done it. Holding a falcon near to my shoulder is interesting but its beaks are still frightening to me.
