DAY 11

Buffet breakfast.

Morning free at leisure in Dubai which the traveller can dedicate to shopping; as the city has been recently been known as the city of shopping thanks to the DSF (Dubai Shopping Festival) celebrated every year for a whole month in January and February.

The city hosts some of the world’s most renowned designer names and shops. However, the beauty of Dubai resides in that it merges extremely unattainable shopping areas with magnificent souks where haggling is on the day-to-day agenda. In these souks, you can find all kinds of products such as electronics, gold, fabric and many more. The safari begins in the afternoon between 15.30 and 16.00 hours in order to witness the beautiful Emirati sunset.

Pick up at the hotel in luxurious state-of-the-art 4 X 4 safari vehicles (up to 6 persons per vehicle) and experience a different way to surf through the desert dunes.

The route goes though a natural oasis and camel farms. The spectacular and unique scenery provides an excellent opportunity to immortalise the moment in a snapshot; the magic and glory of the Arabian sunset and the eternal beauty of the desert. After sunset, we will finally arrive at the camp where we will sit in a traditional Arabic ambience.

Camel rides and sand-surfing are available upon request right outside of the camp. Inside; however, indulge yourself with the aromatic Shisha (water pipe), henna tattoos or simply enjoy the feast. Illuminated by the bright moon of Arabia, pamper yourself in a typically grilled meal with fresh salads and fruits under a sea of stars followed by an Arabic folkloric show including the famous belly dance.
