This was by far the best desert safari experience we’ve had to date!!! A special thank you to our tour guide Ahmed Sayed Afifi who was very professional, accommodating, and well organised throughout the trip. All activities were planned and carried out in a timely fashion. A special thanks also to our 4x4 driver, Ahmed, for a wonderful adventure he gave us in the dune bashing activity as well as his host and accommodation. We loved every bit of the experience including also the camel riding and sand surfing. A final thank you to our transport driver Salah who collected us from our hotel and dropped us back.

Being 2 young girls in a foreign country, my sister and I were pretty scared to try anything or wander alone. But I cannot express enough how safe and amazing this tour was!!! Our guide’s name was Ramy Afifi and he was phenomenal. Always making sure we were comfortable, relaxed, and having fun! We tried so many new things and it was a jam packed full adventure. His team made our experience perfect! Very funny and kind. Would highly recommend this tour with Ramy!!

A once in a lifetime experience in the magical desert landscape. The drive is quite long and the night in the tent was cold but it was all worth it. The stargazing under the bare desert sky was so incredible and the views in the Aqabat Valley and white desert were enchanting. Our guide Islam was funny, knowledgeable and a great cook. He made the experience absolutely unforgettable!

Magnificent 2-day excursion in the desert with my 2 children, We had a lot of fun and the guides are super nice, may Allah reward them for taking care of us

Brilliant experience to sleep in the desert. Guides were great, very experienced (20+ years), lovely food, very comfortable tent. Desert is stunning.
