One of our most popular events. Liwa is an amazing, amazing region, and this is an affordable and enjoyable way to experience it. This walk will be for 'hours' goal rather than KM. Drive from Dubai 3 hours. Abu Dhabi 2 hours. Meeting time is 12 PM. FRIDAY: We will walk for 4 hours, goal is 12 KM. Arrive to the residence, have lunch and swim. Our walk will begin around 3:30 PM and we will walk for an hour after sunset using the torches and the stars to guide our way. We will come back swim and have dinner and bonfire. Includes: Lunch, Dinner, Snacks SATURDAY: 5:30 -11 am. (5 1/2 hours, goal of 12 KM) Sunrise and sunset in the desert are magical, something not to be missed! Even those that were unsure of how 'far they could go' ended up walking the entire time both days with the group and completing the entire distance. A support car is always nearby if needed. Everyone will have a 'rest stop' every hour which may seem like a lot, but this is the way we ensure that everyone stays hydrated and healthy. We will walk back into our camp for a full lunch and a jump in the spring-fed pool on site. Each rest stops will also have food, energizing snacks, and additional water available. THE AMAZING RESIDENCE You cannot see the stars like this until you are far away from the city lights. It's simply spectacular. The residence is fully equipped with three full bathrooms, all bedding needs, electrical outlets and an amazing spring-fed pool. At night guest choose a spot to sleep either on top of the dune, on the grass under the stars, or under the traditional arabic style majlis. This is an authentic experience in a small group, remote area. This event is open for all, but classified as a moderate hike due to the distance we walk through the desert. SAFETY: Our trek leaders are trained in Wilderness Advanced First Aid and have mapped the trek prior to our walk. Our teams will be communicating via walkie with the drivers and other leaders, and ensuring the health and safety of everyone in the team. ITINERARY: Meeting time is 12 PM in Liwa.

Mt Kenya is the 2nd highest peak in Africa. This mountain is really spectacular. There are some steep scree sections, but its not as long as Kili, acclimatizing is easier, and generally its not as difficult as Kilimanjaro. It is a great mountain if you are just starting out in trekking, but experienced mountaineers will also rave about this mountain. However, as indicated it is a mountain and fitness is essential for a successful climb. UAE Trekkers offers training on the weekends with your team, in addition to gear checks and a detailed pre departure briefing. Visas are usually granted upon departure. The Yellow fever vaccine is not required. We also offer support with gear and flight arrangements in order to make sure that you feel well prepared for the trek, and your climbing team is all prepared.

We are not cutting corners to offer you the bargain basement price. But if you want to sleep with rats in your hut with 30 other peeople on a mattress that has not been cleaned in god knows how long, drink unflitered water, go for it, you can go cheapies to this mountain, but always remember you get what you pay for. We've been twice to this mountain and know what is normally included, and really, what should be included. We have ensured that these things are included in our package. 1 night hotel the night after the trek as per the Kenya airlines flight schedule Qualified and professsionally trained guides: 1:3 ratio Transport from airport to hotel and transport from hotel to Mt Kenya and return in a comfortable tourist bus or jeep. Menu of fresh (not canned) foods and extras on the mountain 4 Season Tents. You will need a warm sleeping bag at least -20. But the tents will be 4 season all weather warm tents. These are not standard on most expeditions because clients sleep in the huts. 1st night in Private Bandas - Also, not on the standard tour, but the first night on the mountain is wet and cold. Tea and hot water on arrival and in the mornings. We got used to these little perks on Kilimanjaro and we have added them to our services. Private Dining Tent - When we get to the huts, we can hang out and have our snacks in there, but our food will be prepared in our own kitchen tent Smaller groups will enjoy the comraderie of meals in the huts. If we do decide to use the huts, we will ensure higher hygeine standards than the normal expected standards, which are pretty risky. Purified and filtered water- All of the drinking water is boiled and purified with a MSR filter. Also, not standard on most expeditions. Non standard menu inclusions - including coffee long life milk, juices, and avacado and other inclusions upon request. If you want to chat with people on the trek, you can join the whats app group for 48 hours to discuss flights and find a tent buddy. [masked]
The northernmost tip of the Mussandam peninsula can only be reached by boat for 3 hours on the high seas. No other dhow will take you this far, this comfortably. We have a ginormous dhow that is and very stable and will fit all of our KAYAKS on the top for us to explore the dolphin populated seas in the fjords on Friday while we motor on up to the tip. Kayaking is a fun way to balance the activities of snorkeling and hiking. We will start in Mussandam bay and kayak our way along the coast to reach Kumzar. Then we will explore the island and meet the locals, whom we know pretty well now after our 5 trips here each year. We will snorkel on Friday and spend most of the day reaching our destination of Kumzar by early afternoon. We will do a short 2 hour hike here through the spectacular canyon, a rocky but not steep bouldering hike that is great for all ages (8 + ) and those with good fitness. Early, early sunrise on Saturday, we will do the viewpoint hike which is a steep and rocky incline ascent for 1.5 hours, a total hiking time of 3 hours. You always have the option to either kayak or hike. We will kayak with the speedboat around us, and snorkel and swim only with buddies. Our trek leaders are also certified and experienced lifeguards as well as wilderness first aid trained and certified. Itinerary: We have learned that the best attitude is to be flexible and understand that the weather and other conditions will dictate what happens when. You will arrive late on Thursday night but we will have rooms in a guest house available as you arrive. You will need to wake up and just get across the street to the port where the boat will meet you at 7 am in the morning. Our activities will include Kayaking, Snorkeling, hiking, relaxing on the boat, a beach bbq, but we do not put timings on our weekend. Our goal is to reach back to port by 200 pm in order to beat the rush at the border and be back in either city by early evening. This is a weather sensitive destination. There are no refunds! We have options and alternatives to most weather conditions and therefore cancelling due to weather is really an unusual circumstance, but it is still a possibility. We reserve the trip of the week after this as an alternative date, and then the next planned trip is March 28-30th. What’s included: 1400 DH 1 night in the Guest House/Hotel in Khasab plus breakfast (cannot guarantee what room situation is, could be single, double, triple, it depends on the numbers) Additional charge to guarantee your own room. • All food and drinks (l/d/b/l) + snacks and water on the boat • 50 Person Dhow cruise to Kumzar • Snorkel gear also available for various stops along the way. • Single, double and triple Kayaks available for everyone (but not all at the same time ) This trip is quite suitable and enjoyable for families and kids You must have trekking or hiking shoes if you choose to do either of the hikes, with no exceptions. If you don't have proper hiking shoes, you can just kayak you won't miss out. BOOK NOW HERE: https://secure.telr.com/gateway/ql/UAETrekkersFZLLC_23535.htmll How the Trip Works: 1.

More Information and Payment: https://www.uae-trekkers.com/calendar/2019/3/8/adv-beginner-ghost-village-wadi-shahah This wind swept plateau is a window into the past. The trek begins in the cooler afternoon hours. We will start down a well worn but rocky trail, just long enough to warm up until we start the uphill ascent for around 30 minutes. Its a great workout if you’re in shape, but a breathless exhausting climb if you’re not. We will wander round the ‘modern’ village to admire the view before descending into an eerie abandoned village in Wadi Shahah. Trekking time will not be more than 2 1/2 hours total. The terrain is rocky, with a few opportunities to scramble. Sturdy trekking shoes are a must! The trailhead is in the mountains of Jabal Jais, reachable with any saloon car with no off road patches. 3:00pm is our meeting time and we will all drive to the trailhead, starting at 3:30pm. The location is in RAK, about 3 hours from Abu Dhabi and 1.5 from Dubai. You will be finished by 5:30 pm. COST 250 DH What’s included: 2 Wilderness First Aid Certified Trek Leaders who know the trail well Not included: Transportation, water or food Hiker’s Responsibility: Proper hiking boots with ankle support 2L of water and backpack to carry it in Snacks Sunscreen, hat, sunglasses Comfortable clothes
