You will be picked up at your hotel or a well-known meeting point in the centre of Abu Dhabi and chauffeured to the Al Khalim Desert for about 50 minutes. After your arrival, your adventure begins with an exciting Dune Bashing before a photo session in the middle of the desert. You will then visit a camel farm.
Then you will reach your camp for the night, a traditional Bedouin camp equipped with pillows and carpets, modern lights and separate toilets for men and women. Enjoy Arab hospitality with falafel, Arab coffee, tea, dates, soft drinks and water. The camels are already waiting for you here to ride on their backs and take a picture at sunset.
Let yourself be entertained by special activities such as henna painting, music and a real falcon. In the evening, marvel at belly dancing and tanoura dancing before you satisfy your hunger with a barbecue. Spoil your palate with grilled dishes and Arabic specialities. When all activities are over, the camp lights go out to give you a perfect view of the sparkling stars. Spend the night in the desert before returning to Abu Dhabi after a morning breakfast.
