The Desert of Abu Dhabi is one of the most exciting attractions in the city. Adorned with a number of historic wonders and an unspoiled golden backdrop, the Desert of Abu Dhabi makes some of the few remaining places where one can enjoy a sneak peek of what Abu Dhabi once was. Camels made an important part of the historic and nomadic Arabian lifestyle. These enormous innocent animals were used for milk, meat and mainly transportation. You can still experience and relive the feeling of traveling from one region to another on the back of a camel by indulging in a camel safari across the Liwa Desert.
The Liwa Desert in Abu Dhabi boasts vast stretches of rolling dunes with a breathtaking Oasis in the center. For tourists, the Liwa desert is an excellent spot to absorb some authentic Emirati culture. The Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort by Anantara is one of the many luxury hotels Abu Dhabi has that organizes tours to the Liwa Desert. The Tour packages covers 6 important locations in the area which includes a palm tree farm, a cucumber farm and a Camel farm. The Camel farm gives you a unique opportunity to experience an up-close and personal interaction with camels. Taste delicious camel milk and camel milk yoghurt or better yet, hop atop a camels crooked back and indulge in a ride across the Liwa desert.
Camels are amazing creatures to show you across the desert. For one, the ride is an interesting experience and for the other, camels give you an authentic glimpse of nomadic travel. Indulge in your adventure close to sunset because in addition to the cooler weather conditions you can enjoy the unparalleled experience of the sun disappearing behind the dunes. The sunset in Liwa atop a tall camel’s back is one experience you would never want to miss in Abu Dhabi.
