Continue your drive until you reach the desert safari camp, which is built in the middle of the desert. The style and theme resembles a traditional Bedouin village.    Take a ride on the 'ship of the desert', the trained Arabian camels. Try sand-boarding, surfing down dunes on a snowboard-style board. Simply relax on Arabian carpets and enjoy a traditional shesha water-pipe in your choice of fruit flavor. You can experience the art of henna design, as expert painters adorn your hands and feet. Once you're done, why not pose for photos in Arabian dress? Next, it is show time.
