Travelogue – Dubai Desert Safari
Since beginning of my Desert Safari Deals I obtained to take heed to about Desert Safari. Many people spherical prompt to go for this on weekend. My first two weeks (& clearly weekends) went in settling down, digging down enterprise particulars (naturally that was first priority!!) and getting used to schedule. And so first two weekends I spent in Resort room settling down and solidifying the enterprise scope, boundaries & documentation stuff.
First week of December ’07, each factor about enterprise was clear and I used to have the ability to exit n N’pleasure. I decided to grab the first various; this weekend was three days prolonged. I rested on first day. Second day morning I ringed up journey agent office and booked the safari seat. I was prepared eagerly till afternoon since safari was scheduled to start out at 4 pm. Driver ringed up spherical 2.45 in noon, loads prior to scheduled time of three.30 pm. Driver, Amin Mohammed; a typical Arabian man, 6 toes in high, carrying typical Arabic gown was prepared downstairs alongside together with his large plushy Landcruiser for me. Wanting on the Automotive itself I guessed my journey was going to be the best travelling experiences I ever had. 🙂
We started our journey after ending up “introduction ceremony” with each other. Within the meantime 4 additional of us joined us for tour. Being first to be picked up I had grabbed the doorway seat in landcruiser which later proved to be the best place in Safari. With entrance seat you get the clear large view of desert in entrance of you and the best chance to shoot video and good footage of various vehicles in “cafila” as correctly. Moreover you get a chance to work along with driver merely to know additional wherever required.
I started bugging Mohammed with questions: “The place are we going? What is the establish of the place?” Mohammed might talk okay English if not good. AL Awir was the establish of the place we had been visiting. 30 Kms away from Dubai, that’s the place the place exact desert begins and stretches it’s boundaries as a lot as far elements 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 spherical 10 landcruisers obtained collectively to start out out the exact DESERT RIDE. The tyre stress of vehicles was diminished to handle up with softness of the sand.
The landcruiser started cruising in desert in the direction of immense resistance being created by softness of sand. Rapidly the monstrous machine picked up extreme tempo with its vitality and we had been driving on desert sands up and down, on small n large waves, diving deep from excessive of the waves and climbing up small sand hills. It was altogether good experience along with bit of delight. The one issue I missed was; I couldn’t drive the machine myself!
Rapidly we reached the desert resort the place dinner and abdomen dance current was organized. Welcome drink was Standard “Kahwa” and tea. Kahwa is kind of black espresso. Me being espresso freak, beloved 4 – 5 cups of Kahwa w/o sugar in 2 hours size. Of us started fulfilling a bit and went for mehandi and “SASHA”. Sasha is typical Arabian flavoured smoking pipe similar to Indian HUKKA.
After an hours time, Arabian kind grilled rooster and meat kebab had been served along with some Indian veg meals. I was shocked to see the dominating use of Indian meals over western and Arabian meals. Even Rajma Rice and Dal was accessible!!
