Hold on for the ride of your life! As you journey deeper and deeper into the desert, you'll stop and see camels having a rest at their camp, and from high atop a sand dune, you will watch the most incredible sunset you've likely ever witnessed. Down below, your Arabian camp waits to welcome you in traditional fashion. You'll relax on cushy low cushions in Bedouin tents, your hands will be painted with intricate designs, you'll discover a traditional spice souk, hop on a camel for a short ride, and enjoy some sweet shisha.
