When we arrived the camp, the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. They helped us carry our bags to our tent and gave us a nice cup of mint tea whilst we wait for the tent to be ready. The tent was simple, with two single beds and a table. The facilities for the toilets and showers are shared, however we got lucky and had an upgrade to a bigger tent with two double beds, a private toilet/shower and a 'sofa'.
The atmosphere was great and because it was not so busy, it was very quiet with a few guests, allowing you to truly soak up the desert. The views are absolutely amazing and I highly recommend doing a camel ride or a jeep tour across the desert. Bring loads of water and sun lotion!!! The desert air is very dry and although it was April, it was hot!
The dinner buffet was fantastic and everyone was so nice and friendly. They offered us tea after dinner and set up a little campfire so you can relax and watch the many stars. The breakfast is not the standard one you could expect and was pretty basic but it was nice.
Overall, a great experience not to be missed!
