Fun safari with Yar

We had so much fun on this excursion. We first went to an area where you can pay extra to ride ATVs. We waited and opted for a stand that made fresh juice (they have multiple kinds). Once we left that area the real fun started. The dune bashing was great! Yar was our tour guide and was a great driver. For me, I especially liked how safe he was looking out for other vehicles. The only thing to be aware of is there is someone driving around when you are on the dunes to take pics. We thought this was the bird included in our tour, but it wasn’t. So, before any pics are taken, make sure to ask.
Great safari and great drivers Yar!

Our driver Amjad, was very accommodating and nice; made our tour even better. He was persistent for us to resume the trip, when we got tired; therefore there were no regrets. Kudos to him!
A Right Royal Safari .. excellent in every respect

Superb from start to finish .. pickup spot-on time, great explanation of what to expect and approximate timings from our driver Amjad who also pointed out places of interest on our outward journey and explained the ways of Bedouins. The 4 x 4 red hill drive was amazing and exceeded expectations in the capable and skilled hands of Amjad who took loads of photos of, and for us.

The Sahara Fortress was a beauty to behold in the darkness with a camel ride, excellent shows throughout the evening; the buffet delighted every sense of our taste buds with so much on offer I regretted not having 2 stomachs.

At the end of our trip a safe and timely ride in the Friday night traffic allowed us to grab our cases from the hotel and get to DXB in good time for our flight back to the UK. So, so pleased we grabbed this trip to close our Dubai experience
A Wonderful Evening
