We were collected from out hotel about 1.30pm and then went to Safari Oasis. We were given a talk about what and where we would be going. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable. A gentleman put our scarves around our heads and said to keep putting water over your head to keep cool. We then got into 4 x 4 jeeps... More

It was a long day with two children in the blazing heat of the rocky desert! Our tour guide from Red Sea Waseed was fun, entertaing, friendly and funny! It was all quite rushed, going to see the Bedouin, riding camels, donkeys, horses but once out on the quads and spider buggy it was fun and relaxing. I would have... More

If you want a day of being blasted by sand then great but this was an awful day out for us. There was lots of hanging around, the food was slop, we were feed early so it was fresh but later it was actually the same food just been sitting around for six hours. The experience in the desert was... More
