We travelled as a couple and will provide insights based on winter time travel season.
The service and hospitality of the people is unbeatable! The silence of the night does not make this place remote. Instead, during a full moon, one should sit outside the camp balcony or even lie down on the soft, cooling desert sand to admire what nature has to offer. Set against the backdrop of the rocks, the full moon reflects light onto the rocks and the backdrop is lovely and provides serenity for the travellers.
Inside the main camp, travellers can interact over the campfire, enjoy the bbq corn and have some hot drink. After, proceed to enjoy a good middle eastern meal prepared by the locals.
The camel ride and jeep ride in the day is amazing and provides a great exposure and the local guide will recommend to alight you at various interesting spots for photoshoot if you are on a jeep. Going there during winter may be cold, but it's an interesting experience to run around in the desert sand during the day!
The night is really cold in the room with minimal insulation. Dress full in thermal and down jacket for a good sleep. Bed blankets are thick but the room is still cold. Wear socks and shoes in the room. The carpets on the ground may be very sandy and cold. The room operates with minimal lighting due to conservation of electricity and the running tap water can be very cold during winter.
The staff in the camp is honest and reliable. The rooms are not based on the normal lock system as it's a camp. On the day trips out and night time, we were all very safe and secure. A wonderful experience at the Captain Desert Camp!
Spend enough time star gazing outdoor and you might be lucky to catch a shooting star! We did!
