Our safari was extremely thrilling and exciting. We are a group of friends always looking for something out of box and we decided to go on a safari. Dune bashing was crazy. Before taking the ride, we have watched few videos of Dune bashing. So we were already aware of what to expect. But when we did it actually, our expectations exceeded. I wish I could ride the vehicle myself in the desert. let it be next time. I loved the sandboarding. It was great fun. Red dunes were incredible to watch. We enjoyed climbing and taking photos. Views of vast dunes while the sun sets were quite unique and wonderful. Dinner was good. Dance shows were mindblowing. Honestly, this was something I will never forget.

It was a day we spend it with full of excitement and happiness. My parents and siblings was very eager to explore all entertaining things at there. We were lucky to have a wonderful guide Mr. Shameer. He is so good at his profession. I experienced the wonders of dune bashing and it was my first time. I was little nervous in doing but the guidance reduced its intensity. My brother was jumping with joy after his sandboarding. At the back of the camel every one of us were laughing loudly. All the activities at the desert camp was charming and thrilling. Too delicious BBQ, rhythmic dance shows and fantastic shisha smoking. All are in one destination. Thank you so much for making my day so happy with my family…..

Believe me or not, if there is one place in Dubai that is an ultimate paradise for relaxing and reviving, it is Desert. it is a heaven. Incredible views, pulsating adventure, cultural activities everything could be experienced here. From everybody who already been there, I came to know how beautiful it was, but we were truly amazed as our car approached the desert. This is a great place for an off road ride. I just couldn’t stop taking pictures.
