Dubai Series: Desert Safari Adventure

Hello Lovelies,

Today, I will be reviewing my trip to the desert safari in Dubai.

One of the places on my list to visit in Dubai was desert safari. I had heard so much about dune bashing  (rollercoaster ride through the sand) So I decided to go try it out.

I booked a trip with a tour bus and was told where I will be picked from the following day.

I took a train to my pickup location and waited for the bus. When the bus arrived, I paid for my trip before getting on the bus.

We picked up other people from different locations then headed out to Oman (desert safari) it was a 2 hours drive.

When we got off the tour bus. We entered a Land Cruiser. I was puzzled on what was going on (we didn’t know our dune bashing adventure had started). We were driven round the desert with high-speed. It was scary. We will go on high sand hills then come down with speed. Then climb again. Some people were screaming, crying and laughing. It was terrifying.

When we got off the jeep. I took some minutes to slow down my beating heart. Then got on a camel. It was a slow and short ride. I was scared the camel will gallop off but it did not. I had a lovely camel ride.

Then I spotted a henna artist and went to get henna on my hands. I got a beautiful design with glitters. You can read my desert safari henna experience here.

I found a section to play dress up. So I dressed up as a Arab woman and took pictures.

There were other vendors. I bought roasted sweet corn. It was too too sweet. I also bought a beautiful scarf because the weather was cold.

Another section had free snacks, hot tea, drinks being served. I got some to eat.

We all took our seats and waited for the show to begin. Some dancers performed, magicians performed tricks and other acts performed on the stage.

After the show, we all queued for free buffet meals. It was delicious. Then we all got back on our buses and were dropped off at our pickup location.

My whole desert safari experience was fun and I had alot of first. It was a beautiful day well spent. Dubai is the best in hospitality and they know to give a good show.

Have you ever been to the desert safari? Please share your experience.

Dubai Series : Henna Tattoo

Hello  Lovelies,

During my holiday in Dubai, I visited Desert Safari and got henna on my hands . I will do a post soon about my whole Desert Safari trip. I have always wanted to paint henna. I think this was the best opportunity to try it.

After applying henna paste, you are meant to allow it dry so it can last longer on your hand. [For longevity of henna colour, less washing of the body part where henna is applied and less use of soap.]

After 30 minutes of the application of henna paste, my hand started itching me badly so I had to wash it off. I ended up with faint henna tattoo that lasted for three days .

I don’t know what caused the itch but I will definitely try henna on my hand again.

Have you ever tried Henna? Please share your experience.

Dubai Series : A perfect way to end the year



Hello Lovelies,

The year is ending , I guess that is why I  have been reminiscing about one of the best days of my life.

On the 31st of December 2015, I arrived in Dubai. While I was walking to get my luggage a young Arab Man approached me and told me I won a free boat cruise from Dhow Cruise which was valid for a week  . I was surprised and excited. Since I had nothing  planned to do, I decided to go that  night.

Of course, some other Nigerians that won all said it was a scam. My agent told me not to go but I am happy I didn’t listen to them. I called the number provided to book the cruise for that evening at 9pm.

My sisters and I were there at 8pm. One of my sisters had to pay 150 dirhams for the cruise because she didn’t  win a free cruise.

The boat was double-decked. We stayed on the upper deck. We had buffet, magicians performed, dancers performed and there was dancing competition between the Indians on the boat and Nigerians  [yes I represented Nigerians. lol]. The cruise was for 2 hours. I had the best time.

It was a perfect way to start a holiday and end the year 2015.

Right now, I am imagining myself having dinner on  Dhow Cruise with the fascinating lights of Dubai creek with Music and Tanura Dance show with a sip of my favourite drink and buffet dinner. Please take me back .
