Usually I celebrate New Year with my family and friends in our hometown. But this time I have decided one thing, my coming new year eve will be something special.. it’s be in one most fitting location. In fact I have started to plan from the last November itself and at last I zeroed down in Dubai. Ok, Dubai.. then how & where? Again searching volumes of tour packs across the web.. with a definite criteria, it should be a unique one. Later my close buddies also joined me in planning and finally we fixed evening red dunes desert safari with oceanair travels. There’re actually lots of desert safari offerings but we felt the way these people put up the package there’s some novelty in it. Usually everyone celebrate new year in the heart of a metropolis, or in a cruise, or even in a flight. But that special eve in the heart of a desert, that too in a typical encampment, all it seemed quite interesting to me. So we decided to go ahead with this one. On Dec 31st late afternoon oceanair guide picked us from our hotel to start our new year eve safari. The starting point in the desert was full of people and vehicles.. Seemed, like us, they too are gathered there to celebrate the new year. The activities.. dune bashing, sand surfing and all filled us with pleasure. Their camping area was decorated with illuminated lamps. It was good vibes all over. The BBQ dinner had special dishes.. we really enjoyed the dinner and joined with other team to welcome the new year. 2018 signalled its arrival from with superb fireworks. We’ve seen fine displays afar. After all the grand gala, our guide caringly escorted us to our hotel. Wow..this was my best new year celebration :D

"Peak level commitment from your staffs "

I really appreciate the services of Ocean air travel’s staffs throughout the trip. Keep going. We will consider this tour company in our future tours. As a first timer in Dubai, we were little curious and confused about the tour. But after meeting our guide Sagar we became cool as he welcomed us warmly. On the way to the desert, we talk many things regarding this package and our personal life. After reaching desert he gave some guidance before starting the dune bashing. I was sitting in the front seat, so I got clear cut picture of desert and dunes. The land cruiser was very powerful because it smoothly climbed over the massive dunes easily. After that he took our superb snaps with the beautiful sunset on background. Camping entertainments was also great as we expected because we already seen various snaps of the camp entertainments. The buffet dinner was pretty good too. We had it while seeing dance performances. And Sagar dropped us to our hotel on time.

"Explored the land of sand"

From the photos I have posted, my friends said the place is awesome. And surely is. I think this safari is a definite try for those who want to get up close with desert. Off road riding was superb! As we were riding through the desert, we got the lovely views of desert. Beauty of this landscape was unmatched in the evening. The true beauty of the safari came out in Dune Bashing. We were seated in a 4wd vehicle and ventured into steep dunes. Before bashing begin, we were asked to fasten our seatbelt. It was like a roller-coaster ride. Sand boarding was also exciting & thrilling. I can’t forget the experience of sliding over the dunes. Loved holding soft sand on my hand. If you are adventure-prone, you will find this task quite easy. In the camp we took pictures in Arabic attire and with falcon on hand. I was a bit frightened..thinking this bird might be aggressive. But luckily nothing happened. It was here I tried riding the camel for the first time. So was little bit afraid initially. I was told to be confident. It was a fun to have henna painted on my hand. Enjoyed much!!

"Brilliant execution by the tour operators"

As a whole this trip was excellent. They conducted and we followed as per the given itinerary, all thing gone smoothly as they said. Our guide Mansoor was very knowledgeable about the country and the trip as well. The trip was started on time with a pickup. As per the itinerary our first section was desert dune bashing. Before starting the dune bashing, they arranged the tyre pressure perfectly to make the desert safari smooth. After that, we just rocked, the drive and drifts was awesome as a roller coaster ride. This drive lasted for hours, before the sun gone down (sunset). The sunset visuals are too great, took some photos as I holding sun on my hand by the help of our guide. The next section was on the camping area. I learned a lot about UAE’s culture through our camping experiences. The hubbly bubbly smoking and tattooing section was an opportunity to learn their traditional activities. Moreover, there I tasted the very delicious buffet dinner with all my favorite dishes while enjoying the dance performances. As we planned, Mansoor dropped me on my hotel.
