Was a very nice safari! We even stopped again for the sunset to watch it in the dunes. I only advise that you take a close look when booking, because if you book 4 hours there is no BBQ, even if it is first in the heading of the trip.

We had booked the 7 hour desert safari with BBQ. Everything was well organized, we were picked up directly at the hotel and then drove into the desert. The desert jeep tour isn't for a sensitive stomach, but it's a lot of fun. ☺️ In between there was a stop for photography and sandboarding. In the camp there was the opportunity to ride camels, quad bikes, henna ... There were enough non-alcoholic drinks and a huge plate of BBQ. There was a belly dance and fire show during the meal. Our guide ALI was super friendly & looked after us very well !! This safari is definitely recommended and was one of our highlights.

We booked the 4 hour tour. The pick-up from our guide Nabeel went smoothly. on the way to the camp, Nabeel made us aware of other attractions, which was very nice. Camel riding was a great experience, just right in length, not too long and not too short. After that we could take a lot of photos with the animals. the actual desert safari was very interesting and the desert is very impressive. However, some of them got sick during this time, which is why we had to take a few breaks. However, Nabeel was very helpful and in the end drove slowly and carefully back to the camp. After that we were offered to watch the sunset. Nabeel was very friendly and helped us a lot with the photos.
