I had about 600 photos to choose from, and it finally came up to 25. The safari my parents and I chose was so much fun! And totally not what we expected… Once again, I found this particular company in Entertainer voucher book, so we paid for two of us, and one ticket was for free. Told you, I love great deals and sales :D
The camp is about an hour and a half away from Abu Dhabi. A bus picks everyone up at the nearby shopping mall, so it’s convenient for us. In a bus the tour guide asked us if we will be doing the dune bashing. We agreed and thought: “Of course we will, it’s just a ride, we’ll take a look at dunes…”. An noooo… how naive we were… We were the first group to take one of the two Land Cruisers and go into the middle of the dunes. And there it started! Unexpected roller coaster, except for if a car falls on the side, I don’t know what happens… Thank God it didn’t happen to us! Our driver was quite gentle with the four girls in his car.
In the middle of the dunes. Breathtaking!..
And going back to the camp to ride a horse and a camel
The safari adventure was not over on that. Others also enjoyed sand boarding and kid’s play area, visited goat ranch, did henna tattoo and took photos in beautiful traditional dresses. Moreover, for additional charge we did a ride on quad bikes. I was bored and tired of it pretty soon, but my dad and everyone else loved it. Then we took a couple of pics with a cute falcon. Staff takes a good care of him :) Later, on sunset they did a falcon show.
Next, we had a dinner with many dishes to choose from. The company did a great job at this matter, especially with complimentary drinks available in a fridge throughout the whole day.
And finally, watching a short film about UAE around a camp fire before going back home. Some people chose to stay for the night though, but we did only a half day safari.
