The first thing we did was go over the dunes in a 4x4 jeep. I don't think this tour is for the faint of heart. The dunes are pretty steep and the jeep does some amazing maneuvers that makes you feel like the entire car will flip. We actually went down some of the dunes sideways! The driver Mohammed Ali was excellent and my friends specifically asked for him as a guide. It was a lot of fun, like a half an hour roller coaster ride in the sand. The jeeps had to have the tires deflated a bit so that we could climb the dunes and move through the sand.

The camp was in the middle of the desert with sheesha pipes, a barbecue and drinks. The atmosphere was amazing with Arabic music, and a campsite equipped with Persian carpets.
Dinner was delicious! with lots of salad, fruit, pasta, Indian and Mediterranean food.
After dinner there was a belly dancing show
There was also an Egyptian dancer
In one of the tents I got a henna tattoo
If anyone is thinking of going to Dubai this trip is something you should definitely try!
