Very nice experience, I will definitely recommend this to couples and family. For the desert ride is a little more adrenaline so I will not bring any small childrens. The food at the bbq was amazing. Sun set at the desert was outstanding.

We had a lot of fun. Quadbikes were expensive but a lot of fun. Our driver Shahbaz Ahmed was a great driver.. very experienced. He is very skilled. And a good gentleman. The four star is only because of the not very nice dinner. I had more expectations. It was not bad. But it could have been better. Belly dancer photos not posted.

The safari here was super, everything was very tasty and the show program was interesting, especially the caravan and the fire show. And most of all we liked the attitude of the driver Ranjit, he constantly and everywhere accompanied us and was always happy to help us, special thanks to Ranjit
