The Desert Safari is a must for those who wish to experience the 'Real Desert'. Professional safari drivers take us on a thrilling roller-coaster ride across the golden dunes. We stop by the highest sand dune for a photo-shoot of the spectacular sunset. We then proceed to the Bedouin campsite located in the heart of the desert. A warm Arabian welcome awaits us, accompanied by refreshing Arabic coffee ('Kawa') and dates. Soft drinks, tea and water are also available. A brief camel ride adds fun.Smoking the 'Sheesha' or 'Hubbly Bubbly' is a typical Arabian experience not to be missed. Various mild and fruity flavors offer a tingling sensation. Ladies particularly enjoy adorning their arms with exquisite patterns of "Henna" (leaf) tattoo.While we relax on the carpet and cushions. A delicious BBQ is prepared under the star-lit sky. Later, an enchanting belly dancer appears, tearing apart the darkness of the night. She dances gracefully and rhythmically, keeping pace with the increasing tempo of authentic Arabian music. Excitement rents the air as the audience try to match her steps. Tanura Dance performances will liven up the evening. Delicious BBQ buffet dinner is served right on time, unveiling a feast of Arabian and international delicacies.

First, our driver came to pick us up at our hotel 20 minutes earlier than we had expected. We had to get everything together is a big rush and then he was very annoyed that we kept him waiting. We then went to pick up another group and headed to the desert only to sit around for 45 minutes. So... what was the attitude about upon pickup?
Once you get to the desert area, there is little to do but sit and wait without many places to sit and the only distraction are several small local shops or pay to take out an ATV. Sand boarding was not offered. Once we got started in the SUVs, the actual drive in the dunes was thrilling and fun. Viewing sunset from the dunes was beautiful.
After the drive, we were taken to the BBQ camp. Be prepared for lots of pressure to "upgrade" everything. For example, you must pay more to sit on a seat with a back and to sample any other fl
