Desert Rangers opens new Desert Safari Camp in Dubai
Thursday 5, August 2010
A beautifully decorated, traditional Bedouin camp in the middle of the Dubai Desert, in Aweer with a landscape of meandering dunes surrounding the campsite. A prominent dome, and flame torches lead the way of the entrance into the magnificent aromas of the sizzling BBQ and fruity sheesha scents.
Local Bedouins serve sweet, Arabic, aromatic coffee, and fresh sticky dates as well as a refreshing towel to welcome you in. Two VIP majlis with an upper and lower level, traditional low tables and arty, handmade cushions seat you for the perfect view of a stunning Desert sunset. A photograph will serve as a great and cherished memory. Around the camp there are plenty of activities to fascinate. Camel riding around the campsite is another refreshing way to enjoy the wavy desert landscape as the camels elegantly and carefully tread the dunes under the starlit sky. Ladies and gents alike usually take fancy to trying some henna decorations on their hands or elsewhere as a souvenir on the way back home. The body art made from natural plants leaves a deep red imprint and a awe-like feeling as the colours deepens each day and finally fades away after a week or so.
A well stocked bar serves unlimited soft drinks (complimentary for all guests) as well as drinks of the malt and barley varieties which are available to purchase to give you that extra kick and relaxing feeling if required. The mysterious and rhythmic sounds begin to play after a full and varied dinner to signal the start of the exotic belly dance show. The brave guests are welcomed on the stage to swing their hips and shake their rears as demonstrated by the professionals! After this, a further delighting show of the Tanoura performed by sufi men, who keep on going round, like the dervish dance in the Levant and Turkey,using long colorful skirts that make a beautiful images when swirling around in circles and even light up in various colours. A truly splendid way to the end the evening.
All in all a delight for eyes, ears, and all senses!
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
