Full description

Climb on to the comfortable saddle attached while the animal in laying on the ground. This part of the experience is always a lot of fun, and a little scary for first time riders. Make sure you bring a camera, for the many beautiful sights and experiences you'll have along the way.  Following your Bedouin guide, step out into a spectacular desert for a safari. A beautiful place, and breathtaking scenery. Moving at a stately pace, you will be able to take in all of your surroundings. Passing through magnificent sunset colors, with great mountains of golden sand, as far as the eye can see.

Same adder where we had been horse riding the day before and so we knew that they were well-groomed animals and also nice guides. Camel riding is a thing in itself, you have to have done it several times because it is extraordinary. Especially when the animals start to trot. The day after you should plan in for relaxation :-D Was a pretty cool trip, guide took a lot of photos and videos of us.

We were picked up at the hotel on time, everything was great. After initially being shy, the ice was broken to the guide, he introduced himself and us to the camels and led us into the desert. He also took photos of his own accord, gave us or in this case our child the reins, which of course was an enormous experience for our daughter. The tour was really nice, then we went to the beach. The guide kept taking photos. We took a break on the beach, unfortunately we didn't ride long on the beach, I had actually imagined and wanted that. He also took more photos of us there. We met a group of riders that our daughter immediately took over. She was allowed on the horse by this guide and he also took her back. We had a great outing, sinking in the desert and the happiest kid in the world. However, there were no free drinks at any time, and no reference to it.

Hello, I dared this camel ride with my daughter (3). It was a great experience for us, but 2 hours on a camel's back is very exhausting. I think for toddlers from 3 years as described it is not yet suitable, they should be a bit older (from 6 years) ... To the surroundings, under desert I had slightly different ideas, was not necessarily a lot of sand, are on everyone Garbage piles and construction sites over. The transfer worked well, was picked up at the hotel on time and delivered safely, the trip was a bit adventurous. Free soft drinks and water were promised in the offer, which would have been good in the heat, this was not the case, so take something to drink with you! Instead, these promised drinks were offered for purchase after the 2-hour ride! The attitude of the animals, unimaginable in Germany, has to be dealt with, very borderline, not a pretty sight!
