    ATV Driving is fun but not as easy as it looks. I found it hard to stay on the road and I actually derailed a few times because I went down the hill. Make sure you press a lot of gas when driving- that is the only way you will drive smoothly. If you ultimately fail at driving the ATV to the destination (sand boarding) like me, then you will ride in a car that will bring you to sand boarding and back to the starting point as well. The car ride was very fun! As for the camel ride, it was pretty short- I was in the front so it wasn’t that bumpy- I heard it was bumpy in the back. It says in the voucher we bought that we can feed the camels but that wasn’t available- the camels were wearing masks. Also the bbq buffet was yummy and there’s a lot you can experience at the camp like henna tattoo, buying souvenirs, taking pics with a falcon, trying Arabic tea/coffee, and there’s like 3 performances. I wish there was belly dancing but there wasn’t :( but overall it was still a great experience!
