You are invited to an "Overnight Camping & Desert Safari"!!!

Due to popular demand, this event has moved to Friday instead of Thursday!!

Dear DSC members

I think the weather is getting better, so let us do an Overnight Camping & Desert Safari!!

Overnight Camping & Desert Safari has been arranged for our fellow DSC members to experience the true sounds and flavors of the desert. 

We will gather at Dubai Marina Mall @ 4 pm and get picked up by a luxury coach and off to a great night in the desert.

The first part of this tour is to enjoy the exciting dune drive in the desert. And once reaches the composite, enjoy camel riding, sand skiing, also henna painting and wearing of local costumes for photography is available in the camp. Watch out for our belly dancing and tanoura show with our extremely delicious BBQ buffet intercontinental dinner.

Staying in desert the whole night, enjoy the silence and the breathtaking brightness of the stars is a big contrast to the crowded city. So just enjoy this oasis with the Bon fire and music as well… And later choose your site to sleep…..either in one of our traditional tents or right under the millions of stars, on top of the soft desert sand. 

Sleeping bags will be provided for your comfort for the night. 

Wake-up with the desert sunrise and relish the continental breakfast after which we will return to Dubai.

Price per person: 150 AED

The price of the Overnight Camping & Desert Safari includes the below:

* Pick-up and drop off Dubai Marina Mall

*  Desert driving & Dune bashing by land cruisers with professional drivers trained in Dubai desert driving

    Thank you for those who attended .. It was great fun and it was a nice night .... Great people and I have enjoyed it a lot.
    Btw, I have already banned those who didn't attend and didn't respect their RSVP ... and I'm thinking to ban some of those who attended .... Especially the Spanish Mafia :))) I'm kidding about the second part!!
    Next month we will try and arrange for our own camping trip and barbecue on a beach ... Keep looking out for that!
    See you & thank you!

    Dear Members

    Please note that you have to update your RSVP to NO if you dont plan to come or cant attend. You have till tomorrow noon to do so. Otherwise, if you still have your RSVP as YES and you don't show up then you would still have to pay and you will be not allowed to attend any DSC events for the next 2 months.

    Please be aware that we will be paying deposit based on the number of RSVPs by tomorrow noon; so we ask you to be sensible about the whole thing and honour your RSVP. Please be nice and remember to update your RSVP if you don't plan to show up. You have no idea how much we would appreciate that and how much self respect you would show once you do that and honour your RSVP.

    Thank you and see you there Inshallah!

    Hi Otto, I'm interested in going but I'd like to ask some questions first. I've landed in Dubai just a few days ago so Im not very familiar with places yet. How would I recognise the group or pay for this trip?also is it possible to opt out of some activities? is there a phone number on the day I could use if I got lost before meeting the group?

    Thanks for your help

    Hi Otho, I have some questions:
    Tents are provided? Which size, how many people can sleep in one of them? Can we take are own sleeping bags and tents? Is there any possibility to avoid the dune bashing?
    Thanks!

    August 22, 2013

    • A former member
      A former member

      Tents are provided .. Single ones as well as for multiple people .... I think there are some that sleep up to 4 or 5 persons .... I think whoever wants to skip the dune bashing they can do that ... But I will ask just to make sure and get back to you ... Thanks

      August 23, 2013

  • Aurora

    Hi Otho, me personally would prefer Friday. Furthermore, is there any possibility to avoid the "dune bashing" (I get sick of this)? Cheers.
