Take (optional) rides up and down the dunes in the twilight. Then, go to a Bedouin-style camp for a traditional Arabic coffee (kahwa) or tea on arrival. Snack on rich dates and other dried fruits and experience a part of the desert lifestyle. Feel "Old Arabia" come to life in a unique Bedouin setting.

Take part in traditional activities to complete your journey into the culture of the Arab world. Try your hand at smoking a shisha pipe or get a henna tattoo on your hand. Dress in typical Arabic attire and pose for a photo with a falcon resting on your hand or shoulder.
