The Empty Quarter

Liwa Desert Overnight Camping Safari

The historic oasis settlement of Liwa on the edge of the Rub Al Khali, the Empty Quarter, is a big draw for visitors with a penchant for adventure. Journey into the vast unknown after lunch, as a rugged Jeep whisks you to the Liwa desert on the outskirts of Abu Dhabi. Arriving at the fringes of the Empty Quarter, you navigate pristine desert terrain that has remained unchanged for centuries, reaching a secluded camping site in the middle of the rolling dunes. Stretch your legs on comfortable rugs and cushions whilst sipping a sparkling beverage and enjoy light snacks. A Shisha enhances the evening vibe. The silence is broken by the sizzle of crackling coal as the enticing aroma of fresh barbeque fragrances the air. Dig into a spread of Arabic bread, salads and succulent meats. Afterwards attend a short briefing on Arabian wildlife, the topography of Rub Al Khali and discuss plans for an exciting day to follow. A telescope aids your stargazing experience. Contemplate nomadic life as the desert winds caress you into a deep slumber beneath the canopy of a million stars. Awaken to the aroma of fresh coffee and a hearty Continental breakfast. Pack up camp before exploring the nearby Liwa dunes, hoping for a chance encounter with wildlife. Drive to Madinat Zayed district for a wander around the date plantation. Sample local dates and fruits in the Souk before returning with a head full of memories.
