A very great experience for young and old! Just the ride in the jeep over the dunes was a very good entertainment! Good stops in the desert all the way to the camp. Everything is very well organized. Riding the camels is unique and the falconer put on a short but very nice show. In the camp itself there is no boredom with many smaller activities. There is always something to drink and eat. The BBQ was good, varied and plentiful. The evening show versatile. But the best part was the overnight stay! The loneliness on a dark dune, enjoying the stars ... and waking up with the sun

Full and very nice excursion to discover something else from Dubai. Activities that pass the time, hearty and quality meals, pleasant surroundings. The option with the night on the camp was a real experience (not the most comfortable because it rained and it was noisy even if the camp was relatively comfortable) but to do once!

For a night in the desert you have to go in a group, and when it is hot. Because in December the nights are very cold. I liked a lot before. But the night was not that great, because we were very close to the airport runways and we heard all the planes. The sunrise is just incredible.
