First seven day stretch of December ’07, everything about venture was clear and I was prepared to go out n N’joy. I chose to get the main chance; this end of the week was 3 days in length desert safari deals I laid on first day. Second day morning I ringed up trip specialist office and booked the safari situate. I was holding up energetically till evening since safari was booked to start at 4 pm. Driver ringed up around 2.45 in early afternoon, a lot sooner than booked time of 3.30 pm. Driver, Amin Mohammed; a run of the mill Arabian person, 6 feet in stature, wearing customary Arabic outfit was holding up down the stairs with his huge plushy Landcruiser for me. Taking a gander at the Car itself I speculated my outing would have been a standout amongst other voyaging encounters I at any point had. 🙂
We began our voyage subsequent to wrapping up “presentation function” with one another. Then 4 additional individuals went along with us for visit. Being first to be gotten I had snatched the front seat in landcruiser which later demonstrated to be the best spot in Safari. With front seat you get the reasonable huge perspective on desert before you and the most obvious opportunity to shoot video and great pictures of different vehicles in “cafila” also. Likewise you get a chance to cooperate with driver effectively to realize all the more any place required.
I began irritating Mohammed with inquiries: “Where are we going? What is the name of the spot?” Mohammed could talk alright English if not great. AL Awir was the name of the spot we were visiting. 30 Kms from Dubai, this is where genuine desert begins and stretches it’s limits up to far pieces of UAE and contacts OMAN.
We arrived at the spot after thirty minutes venture on thruway. It was a little break of 10 minutes at base camp for this visit coordinator where around 10 landcruisers got together to begin the genuine DESERT RIDE. The tire weight of autos was diminished to adapt up to delicate quality of the sand.
The landcruiser began cruising in desert against enormous opposition being made by delicate quality of sand. Before long the colossal machine got rapid with its quality and we were riding on desert sands here and there, on little n enormous waves, plunging profound from top of the waves and scaling little sand slopes. It was by and large pleasant experience alongside bit of energy. The main thing I missed was; I couldn’t drive the machine myself!
Before long we arrived at the desert resort where supper and hip twirl show was organized. Welcome beverage was Traditional “Kahwa” and tea. Kahwa is kind of dark espresso. Me being espresso crack, appreciated 4 – 5 cups of Kahwa w/o sugar in 2 hours length. Individuals began loosening up a bit and went for mehandi and “SASHA”. Sasha is customary Arabian enhanced smoking funnel like Indian HUKKA.
Following an hours time, Arabian style barbecued chicken and meat kebab were served alongside some Indian veg nourishment. I was shocked to see the ruling utilization of Indian sustenance over western and Arabian nourishment. Indeed, even Rajma Rice and Dal was accessible!!
