On my recent trip to Abu Dhabi I treated myself to this experience and I have never in all of my years experienced anything so fantastic.
There were 6 passengers in the V8 Toyota landcruiser driven by Aris who was brilliant. I was picked up from my hotel and we drove down the road to Al Ain towards the dunes. We left the main tarmac and after a brief stop to adjust the tyre pressures proceeded in the dunes. There were a large number of vehicles on our safari all driven by excelent drivers. They drove through the dunes, sometimes at angles where you think the vehicle would roll over but all under full control, fabulous!!!!! We stopped half way at a camel farm where we could take pictures of the camels with their babies and the others munching on hay, great photos obtained. We then completed the safari and arrived at the evening camp where we received a wonderful buffett as we watched the sun set over the dunes. There was also wonderful entertainment laid on for us as well as the advertised henna tatoos, falcons, arabic dress to use for photos. We were then returned to our hotels.
If you plan to visit Abu Dhabi DO NOT LEAVE without taking one of these safaris.
