This is my first time going on desert safari in Dubai. Kakak has been on it, adik has, even mummy, daddy, abang nain and Kak Dian has been on desert safari and I hear a lot of different stories, which varies from extreme to relaxed stories. So when we arrived, I told mummy that hubby and I wanted to try it!
It was not easy to get a good deal as sometimes the prices are marked up so high and ridiculous. Good thing is mummy has a lot of contacts and we manage to get a great deal.
Before going, mummy said no heavy food, as there will be dune dashing and we do not want to throw up in the car!
It took about 45minutes from our place to arrive into the desert. I was sleeping the whole way, trying to fight the jetlag I'm still having.
First activity - dune dashing
It was awesome!!! We were brought into a 4wd across the desert and dashed trough the dunes of sand mountains. It caused us a slight headache but was really thrilling!
We arrived at the campsite just as the sun sets and we had great food accompanied by great performances such as belly dancing and some dance I don't know the name
I had so much fun in the sand and it made me wonder how people in the past walk through the sands to travel. Because for one thing it is really tiring as the sand is as soft as flour and your foot sinks in. And next is the extreme weather in the desert! It is not easy, yet there is always a way. We spent the rest of the evening counting the starts as the night was rather dark.
I enjoyed every moment of it and can't wait to bring my friends to experience it too!!!!
