Flashback: Desert Adventure

One of the top things to do while in Dubai is to go for a dune bashing experience, otherwise known as Desert Safari Adventure. My ‘Family 205’ organized for a desert adventure with www.saaditourism.com. We paid Dhs 120 each person and were picked up from home at 2PM and off we went to the Arabian desert.
 
It was 1 1/2 hours drive from home to the meeting point, where we will be joined with other group. While waiting for the others, we took a tour at the mini-zoo, where some interesting animals are there such as camel, ostrich, monkey, peacock, and others. There are also other fun activities to do such as ATV driving.

After about 45 minutes of waiting, we were finally taken to the desert by a Land Cruiser.
 
And the thrilling adventure begins in 3,2,1…
 
Hubby Alex held on to my hand tightly and had the loudest scream so far, amongst us.
 
Then we stopped in the middle of the desert for some nice photos.

Then off we went to the camp site. We tried the camel riding, girls did the henna tattooing, and finally we had to find out how we would look like if we dress up like the locals. Funny faces indeed! Dinner’s also included in the package with traditional foods, such as kebab, chicken tikka, biryani, etc. After dinner, a graceful belly dancer appeared to entertain the crowd.
