Me (Chen) and my girlfriend (Evonne) booked this overnight Desert Safari Tour with Oceanair Travels in Mar 23, and it turns out to be one of our best decision ever. Ramzan was our guide for this tour, and he is extremely professional and knowledgeable in his field. The tour started with Ramzan (driver + guide) picking us up from our hotel in Palm at around 2pm, followed by picking up another two couples (the Land Rover can seat up to 6 pax). He subsequently drove us (~an hour) to this site where we get to try out quad biking (optional, 180/230 AED for single/double add-on), followed by sand-dune bashing (with the Land Rover) and sand boarding. At about 6pm we arrived at the Al Khayma Campsite, which was a totally eye opener for us. The entire campsite is well maintained, operated by Oceanair travels. There are various sub-activities zones within the Campsite, where we try out a whole suite of activities like camel feeding, camel riding, Sisha smoking, Henna painting, Traditional candies, tea, Falcon holding and stargazing. Dinner is well-catered by the team, including a comprehensive spread of Arabic, Moroccan and Emirati options. It started off with starters, followed by mains and lastly desserts. We subsequently enjoyed three performances (incl. a finale fire show) and ended the night with stargazing, sweet corn/potatoes and fruits as supper food. It was an unbelievable experience for both of us. We subsequently slept in the tent - the tent was well set up with a king sized bed, with blanket, towel, shower foam, shampoo, toothbrush/paste provided. We were quite skeptical and worried if we get to shower here, but everything is provided. Portable water, soft drinks are free flow for the entire evening. Plugs are also available for phones charging. We slept at 11pm and wake up next day for sunrise camel ride at 6am. After the ride and watching sunrise, breakfast was served, and at about 7.45am we board the transport and was sent back to our hotel (reach about 9am). Highly recommended tour!

This Overnight Desert Safari, Camel, BBQ & Stargazing at Al Khayama Camp (with Oceanair Travel) was an amazing experience for my wife and myself. We were checking into The Royal Atlantis straight after this experience and we both were blown away by this experience compared to checking into an Ultra Luxury Hotel. Our guide Mansoor Manz was a knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and amazing guide during our trip. He precise and on point with his timing, very punctual. The staff who worked at the camp were all friendly and approachable. The overnight experience at the camp was magical and an unforgettable one.
