Arabian Nights

Arabian Nights

You can’t come to the Middle East and not go on a little Arabian Adventure in the desert.

It starts with getting picked up in a Landcruiser, en route to the Desert Camp, but not before some serious Dune bashing along the way.

It’s a fun experience, however, I recommend you don’t sit in the back of the Landcruiser as it’s a really bumpy ride.

Speaking of bumpy rides, you also get to ride a camel, however our group was having too much fun that we totally missed the opportunity.

Our first treat was a Falcon show with a South African Falcon trainer and his friend Bomber.

Then onto some sunset photo opportunities.

We had T-H-E most amazing tour guide, Bukhari who is not only a talented driver with a world of knowledge on Dubai, he’s also an amazing photographer!

We got dressed up in our Abaya’s and posed for some epic pics on the dunes!

We ate (and ate) traditional Arabic food, enjoyed a mesmerising belly dancer and before the night was over, we got to have Henna painted on our arms and smoked a lil’ shisa (hubbly bubbly).
