At the entrance of the desert your driver deflates the wheels of the 4X4 and then the fun starts. Dune bashing has become known as a fun experience – you will feel the thrill of desert driving as your professional driver takes you up and down on golden dunes. A beautiful desert sunset stop is also included and from the crest of a high dune, watches the sun cast its orange glow over the vast expanse of rippling sand all round us as it sets. Like a shimmering mirage in the distance you will see the flickering lights of your camp where a traditional Arabian welcome awaits you. The encampment conjures up images of the Arabian nights. Relax on comfortable low cushions in Bedouin tents and quench our thirst, have our hands painted with intricate henna designs, you will have the opportunity for a short camel ride, or just enjoy the aromatic shisha. A feast of grilled meats, fresh salads and delectable Arab sweets is served and under a galaxy of stars, we will be entertained by the bewitching belly dancer swaying to the haunting strains of Arabian music.
