fantastic experience, absolutely recommended! Super nice and super helpful driver. once you arrive at the camp you can rent the quad before the safari. I also recommend dinner in the camp which includes the tasting of typical dishes and in the background you can benefit from a very nice belly dance show

What a great experience! Very special to drive in the desert with a 4x4. We had a great driver / guide who guided us neatly throughout the day. Dinner in the desert was fine, but also a bit touristy. You could also ride a camel, but of course travelers from the Netherlands skip that. You just don't do elephant rides and camel rides.

We were picked up on time by our driver Aslam, safari tour was very good, the driver had his vehicle under control, then we were able to take some photos, when we arrived at the camp we could have ridden a camel for free, but only 2 camels for that the whole camp is available, the column was accordingly long, so we did not do the camel ride and there was dinner and 3 shows in the camp.
