Desert Safari with Dinner
This takes you from the bustle of
Dubai city to the desert of golden sand dunes. You will
travel to the desert from your pick-up point in a luxury
4WD and reach there in around 45 minutes. Next, the
dune bashing (desert driving) will begin, where you
will shriek and laugh with excitement as the car goes
up and down the dunes.
Camel racing is a deep-rooted traditional
sport that finds its origins in the desert culture of
the Arabian Peninsula, and the Middle East. Camels,
commonly referred to as "ships of the desert,"
have for thousands of years played a vital role in the
region, influencing every aspect of daily life. Beyond
providing transportation, food, and shelter, the camel
also served as a means of entertainment, celebration,
and competition on festivals and special occasions.
Races would take place at such events, which were generally
more for show than competition. Competitive races would
typically take place as a result of a challenge among
camel owners, therefore requiring preparation that differed
from the show races.
Camel racing became a very popular pastime,
developing into a much more formalized and professional
form of racing which includes specialized breeding,
intensive training programs, and technique. The rise
of camel racing's popularity can be seen as well in
other parts of the world where the race has also begun
to draw in sizeable crowds of spectators and influential
patrons. The sport continues to grow and develop, spreading
and gaining recognition in regions where camels are
not generally common.
Golf has surged in popularity since
Dubai opened the first grass course in the Middle East
in 1988. A second magnificent grass course, with luxurious
club facilities, has been added since. Visitors are
welcomed at both these clubs on a 'pay as you play'
basis. There are also several pitch and putt courses
around the city.
