Abu Dhabi Desert Experience
To get closer and engage with local culture and traditions in Abu Dhabi I really recommend anyone going to experience one day or afternoon doing a Desert Safari.
Abu Dhabi is like many of the Emirate Cities a new and modern creation that has developed immensely since the 1960s. In 1960 only 25 000 people lived in Abu Dhabi, now its almost one million. It’s a convenient place to visit in winter time for sun, beach and a 5 star luxury experience. When I go travelling I love to engage with local culture and traditions which unfortunately is hard to find in Abu Dhabi City. To get closer to that I really recommend anyone going there to spend one day or afternoon doing a Desert Safari.
Desert Safari Tour
There are different tour operators that come and pick you up at your hotel and in just one and half hours you are out in the middle of the desert. There you experience some hardcore “dune bashing” when going with the jeeps in fast speed over the sand dunes. They bring you to camel farms and last but not least for dinner in a desert camp. Here you can enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the desert and the endless dunes around you, watching a beautiful sunset. You also get some inspiration to how life could have looked like for many people before the development of these countries that started in the 60´s. You can dress up in traditional clothing, eat traditional food, smoke shisha and of course experience the traditional belly dancing.
This experience for me was worth every penny not only just for getting out of the city but also for connecting more with the country and get a feeling for the more exotic and traditional parts of Arabian culture.
