Drive by air-conditioned car/coach to Liwa. Liwa Oasis is situated in the south west of Abu Dhabi on the edge of the great Empty Quarter desert (the largest of Arabia), the exhilarating drive over the highest sand dunes in the world is simply a unique and most spectacular experience you will ever encounter. Our journey will take us towards Abu Dhabi, cruising through the multi lane highway passing by Jebel Ali free zone and crossing the borders of Abu Dhabi. The drive continues through tarmac road, sand tracks, along the famous oil pipelines. Our first visit will be at the spectacular Heritage village of HH Shk. Hamdan, known as ‘the rainbow Sheikh’, situated in the midst of the desert, it houses two of his magnificent inventions; a giant truck built at 7 times the scale of it’s normal brother and a mega globe structure, a unique architecture similar to a giant caravan with different layers and chambers. We then continue towards the south passing some magnificent desert landscape and stop for lunch at the famous Liwa Hotel.
After lunch, the real adventure will begin , first we will visit a camel farm where our guides be happy to lecture you about this marvellous beast and its vital importance in the life the bedus. We continue our drive on tarmac road towards the Moreb hill, an interesting site in the midst of some gigantic dunes especially built by the authorities in Abu Dhabi to exhibit specialized desert races twice a year. Our adventure will take off from here into the vast sea of sand and we will climb the steepest of sand dunes and roll down in a ‘roller coaster’ style, the adrenaline level will gradually increase and the drive will get more and more exciting especially when you start hearing the sound of "Sand Avalanche" a very unique experience which can only be experienced in the sand dunes of Liwa area. We will pass numerous desert reserves and if lucky, we might spot some of the rare and indigenous species of Arabia; the Arabian gazelle, which used to roam the desert in the past and were threatened to the extinction, thanks to the effort of HH. Sheikh Zayed, who, succeeded in re-introducing and protecting them. Another attraction on this tour will be the sighting of the unique "Sand Roses" which are basically a form of crystallized gypsum forming under the salt flats called "Sabkhas" and have different shapes which looks much like a rose flower with open petals.
Next we will stop to watch the beautiful sunset, meanwhile our guides will set up the camping area and will cook you a mouth-watering BBQ. Enjoy the emptiness of the desert and watch the night sky decorated by millions of stars! And do not forget to keep that wish for this brilliant shooting star!
Day 02 Wake up early and watch the sun rising in the endless horizon, we will serve you a light breakfast after which we will bid farewell to this “fairy tale” and drive you to your hotel.
Before heading back to the tarmac you may wish to try one of the latest in “desert sport” namely sand skiing where you can test your skills in sliding "surfing" on sand!
