Travelogue – Dubai Desert Safari
Since starting of my Dubai journey I received to listen to about Desert Safari. Many individuals round suggested to go for this on weekend. My first two weeks (& clearly weekends) went in settling down, digging down challenge particulars (naturally that was first precedence!!) and getting used to schedule. And so first two weekends I spent in Resort room settling down and solidifying the challenge scope, boundaries & documentation stuff.
First week of December ’07, every thing about challenge was clear and I used to be able to exit n N’pleasure. I made a decision to seize the primary alternative; this weekend was three days lengthy. I rested on first day. Second day morning I ringed up journey agent workplace and booked the safari seat. I used to be ready eagerly until afternoon since safari was scheduled to start at Four pm. Driver ringed up round 2.45 in midday, a lot sooner than scheduled time of three.30 pm. Driver, Amin Mohammed; a typical Arabian man, 6 toes in peak, sporting conventional Arabic robe was ready downstairs along with his large plushy Landcruiser for me. Wanting on the Automotive itself I guessed my journey was going to be top-of-the-line travelling experiences I ever had. 🙂
We began our journey after ending up “introduction ceremony” with one another. In the meantime Four extra folks joined us for tour. Being first to be picked up I had grabbed the entrance seat in landcruiser which later proved to be one of the best place in Safari. With entrance seat you get the clear large view of desert in entrance of you and one of the best likelihood to shoot video and good photos of different automobiles in “cafila” as nicely. Additionally you get a chance to work together with driver simply to know extra wherever required.
I began bugging Mohammed with questions: “The place are we going? What’s the title of the place?” Mohammed might communicate okay English if not good. AL Awir was the title of the place we have been visiting. 30 Kms away from Dubai, that is the place the place precise desert begins and stretches it is boundaries as much as far components of UAE and touches OMAN.

We reached the place after half an hour journey on freeway. It was a small break of 10 minutes at base camp for this tour organizer the place round 10 landcruisers received collectively to begin the precise DESERT RIDE. The tyre strain of automobiles was decreased to manage up with softness of the sand.
The landcruiser began cruising in desert towards immense resistance being created by softness of sand. Quickly the monstrous machine picked up excessive velocity with its power and we have been using on desert sands up and down, on small n large waves, diving deep from prime of the waves and climbing up small sand hills. It was altogether good expertise together with bit of pleasure. The one factor I missed was; I could not drive the machine myself!
Quickly we reached the desert resort the place dinner and stomach dance present was organized. Welcome drink was Conventional “Kahwa” and tea. Kahwa is form of black espresso. Me being espresso freak, loved 4 – 5 cups of Kahwa w/o sugar in 2 hours period. Individuals began enjoyable a bit and went for mehandi and “SASHA”. Sasha is conventional Arabian flavoured smoking pipe just like Indian HUKKA.
After an hours time, Arabian type grilled rooster and meat kebab have been served together with some Indian veg meals. I used to be shocked to see the dominating use of Indian meals over western and Arabian meals. Even Rajma Rice and Dal was out there!!
Half an hour’s handed by, folks have been enjoyable after dinner and Stomach Dancer’s arrival was introduced and in a flash, even earlier than folks would begin to perceive what’s taking place; the stomach dancer arrived on stage put on
