It's amazing to see how these guys can pull such tiny creatures from the sand. The only reason I'm not rating 5 stars is because it's sometimes hard to see. People get really pushy when there are small animals, but the guides should try to...More

Amazing trip, lots of fun and information. Our guides were really enthusiastic and did quite a bit of walking and tracking... Thus we were able to observe spiders, adders, geckos, birds and - chameleons (eating worms!). Stunning scenery drive as well.

It's quite a unique experience, really helped us to look at the desert under a different angle, those dunes are full of life which adapted to the environment in a variety of ways. Children were particularly excited about spiders, snakes, birds and chameleons. There are...More
