I have always been fascinated by Dubai but never had actually liked it once I arrived. The concrete building new shiny roads and heaps of cheap Chinese electronic goods all made me feel as if I am in a man made concrete model city.
I was suggested by a friend to take a Safari in the desert commonly known as desert Dune Safari I called up a friend in the travel trade to organize the Safari for me, which he did swiftly.
At about 4PM the Safari driver called me and told me that he was waiting for me at the gate of the apartment building I was staying at. I was ready and was actually waiting to be fetched to this so much talked about, experience in Dubai. I went down and introduced my self to the friendly Iranian Driver who was quite friendly guy. he asked me to sit in the first seat and we went to a hotel where he had to pick up 3 more tourists. We drove outside Dubai for a while It was pretty much the same.
Driver made us stop at a cold drink shop where he lowered the air in his wheels, there were at least 20 Jeeps parking and doing exactly the same practice all tourists were busy taking some drinks and cookies for the trip.
Minutes later driver came to us and told us he was ready so were we and we started off Drive made a turn to a smaller road and all of a sudden there was no road we were driving in the sand wow that was first ever natural thing I saw in the desert. We went on the dunes and our Safari driver drove on a tall sand dune and Just at the very top he quite relaxingly descended down the steep dune the two ladies sitting behind nearly screamed but it was fun they enjoyed it so did I. There were other tactic like driving right on the shoulder of the dune and then making a turn blowing the sand in the air etc.
We stopped at a camel farm which was an other great experience later driver bright us into a cam which was a lot different then the idea of a camp I had it was a settled permanent desert restaurant what a Dancing podium couches and a Bar a shop etc although not a lot interesting for me but the people had a great time Buffet Dinner was laid and there would be about 150 tourists all lined up with their plates picking up different dishes mostly Arabian and Indian as most of the tourists were Indians & Iranians apparently. As the dinner started a Russian girl with he sensual clothes came on the podium and performed once again a surprisingly beautiful Arabian dance. Every one enjoyed the dance and music and my mind started thinking about this who scenario as the highlight of any trip to Dubai.
We were asked to be ready in 15 minutes after the dance and driver took us to the hotel first and dropped me off to my home.
Since this Safari I started to like Dubai and It seems to be more of a natural city for me now.
