Our driver Nazar picked us up at our door and after about an hour drive out of Abu Dhabi we came to a beautiful desert with huge amazing sand dunes. The first part of our journey consistent of dune bashing where they deflate their tires and drive up and down some huge dunes in a very thrilling way. We were able to stop and video some of the other trucks going past us so we could see what we experienced from a different view. How they don’t tip the vehicles over is amazing to me by Nazar is obviously a very experienced driver as were the others in the tour. We had 3-4 people in each 4x4.
Then we headed to see some camels in a compound. Unfortunately we were not able to get very close to them so it wasn’t all that an exciting of a stop but it was good to have a break after the excitement of the dune bashing. Then we continued on with more dune bashing to the compound where we were treated to the reset of our activities.
There we had the opportunity to experience henna tattooing, Turkish coffee, sand boarding, camel rides and a delicious traditional dinner. There was an option of ATV rides as well for an extra cost as well as beer or wine. After dinner we were treated to a belly dancer (more like a booby dancer) and a whirling dervish dancer.
Then a ride home with our great guide and driver.
A great experience for the price!
