The Desert Safari was wonderful. We live in Abu Dhabi and were anxious to try some local activities. The trip did not disappoint. It was definitely all-inclusive and perfect for a traveler wanting to get a taste of the desert in one day-dune bashing, visit a camel farm, many photo stops, a camel ride, sandboarding, henna, falconry (hold a docile falcon), Bedouin style seating for a nice multi-cultural buffet (served by staff due to COVID) with tannura and belly dance entertainment. Our favorite part was the dune bashing-the kids loved it. Our guide Mujeeb was great and took lots of photos for us. About an hour from the Corniche in Abu Dhabi.

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
