After the sun has dropped and the temperature cools, see the nocturnal animals come to life. Explore the desert at night with your professional Safari Guide on a private tour. Use UV arachnid lights to see into the desertscape.
Even day time animals may move away from their hideouts to drink, forage and frolic. Enjoy the dark, fresh and quiet desert air as a contrast to the bright lights, heat and noise of the city. After your nature drive, relax at an opened aired camp and enjoy the cooler desert air and watch the blanket of stars above you.
Enjoy a scrumptious BBQ dinner, drinks and a shisha after joining us on a cosmic journey as your private Astronomer recalls the early history of Astronomy and the impressive legacy of Astronomy from Arabia. Enjoy spectacular telescope views of mesmerising night sky objects including the mighty planet Jupiter and its four Galilean Moons, distance galaxies and star forming nebula.
