If you are in Dubai, and not been to desert safari, you are missing out the most incredible experience in life.
After magnificent Jabel Jais mountains in Ras Al Khaimah, it was our next adventurous trip in Dubai. The most exciting, thrilling, fun filled dune bashing, camel ride, delicious buffet dinner, bonfire, bbq, belly dance and a lot more. The beauty of the desert was so magical when the sun go down. The colour of the sky turned into orange,so stunning and spectacular view which was reminding me of a beautiful song “Aafreen Aafreen” by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.
We have booked for the tour a day earlier. Next day, we were waiting for the the pick up at 3 PM afternoon and we reached there on time, not to miss the lovely sunset. The thrilling sand dune bashing was no less than a rollercoaster ride with so many ups and downs, just afraid not to hurt my back. My 2 years old was scared a bit but she enjoyed the ride. Then we stopped to see falcon, the national bird of UAE which is considered very special creature in Arab tradition and culture. As I was too scared of camel ride, didn’t give a try. We have tried to capture the mystic beauty of sunset over the sand dunes. Whether you are a good or bad photographer, the desert makes your photographs look amazing with dramatic landscapes.
My baby enjoyed playing on the sand, jumping, running and hopping around. Just for a moment, I felt as if I was walking on the moon. Then, we arrive at traditional Bedouin style camp where a delicious bbq, buffet dinner awaits along with enchanting belly dance and dazzling tanoura dance. There were many stalls to take pictures in Arabic costumes, henna painting, souvenirs, beverages, drinks and many more. But I was too tired to try on anything and was relaxing on the carpet while my husband was busy with the little one. The entertainment show begun with a wonderful tanoura dance. Then, a beautiful and talented belly dancer charmed the stage with her enchanted dance moves.
After delicious BBQ dinner, we decided to come back. It was an wonderful Arabian night experience, something you shouldn’t miss, lots of fun, adventure, entertainment, most memorable experience that you can cherish lifelong.
