DAY 02: SAFARI AND DINNER IN THE DUBAI DESERT
Breakfast at the hotel. In the afternoon we will make the most attractive and popular excursion… Safari 4×4 in the desert and dinner. Enjoy the desert and live an authentic adventure with the Safari excursion with dinner. We will pick you up at your hotel in a 4×4 vehicle and we will take you directly to the heart of the desert. In more or less an hour we will arrive at the destination and we will check how the color of the sand changes to a more reddish one.
Then we will leave the highway to enter the desert, where they will deflate the pressure of the tires up to a kilo and a half, when they initially had four. In this way, the 4×4 will adapt better to the ground and you will be able to have fun with the exciting ride through high dunes at the wheel of expert drivers. A real adrenaline rush. We will also make a stop with an impressive view of the desert. Here we will have the opportunity to witness a wonderful sunset. And, of course, to take fantastic photographs that prevent us from forgetting those special moments while we perceive the peace that the desert offers us on this calm landscape of fine, reddish sand. Next, we'll go to the camp with its typical Persian rugs where we can enjoy the contrasts of the night in the desert.
We will get a unique insight into the traditional life of the Bedouins and we will be able to ride a camel. You can dress up in traditional costumes or try the typical freshly made Arab sweets. You can also get henna tattoos, learn about the important role that falcons play in local life and smoke a water pipe (shisha) in their designated area. These are some of the activities that you can do within this camp and that are included.
We will enjoy a buffet dinner, outdoors, under the stars. Different types of grilled meat accompanied by a variety of appetizers, salads and typical sweets from the region.
After dinner, we will attend a show, where a Tanoura dancer will turn on himself, keeping spinning without passing out for almost twenty minutes. Also a belly dancer will move her body to the rhythm of Arabic music.
