It was all sands, all your eyes can see are hills made of sands. The driver speed up and here we go, directly to the top of the sand hill and we don't know what's behind it, cannot see since it was a sharp edge.
Seconds later our car feels like falling just as a roller coaster ride when you feel your body grabbed by the gravity and what's holding you at the seat is of course, the seatbelt.
We screamed loud, so happy and excited. All those maneuver at the sand dunes are just so fun and exciting, not as much as scary as what some people think about speeding up and downs those sand dunes; it was all fun and safe! The driver knows what to do and how to handle driving on sand dunes, so what we gotta do is just sit, put seatbelt on and enjoy the thrill.
There are some safety rules before you hop onto this car. First you must always put your seatbelt on, don't open the window during maneuver and just tell the driver if you feel a bit dizzy.
After the fun ride, we stop at - of course - some sand dunes and just enjoy the scenery filled with desert wherever you set your eyes on. I just wish the are places with all sands because there are some tree on those area and for me it would be so exotic if we got a spot with all sands, no tree at all.
Another thing you can see during the safari is the falcon show. Basicaly they will show you how fast the falcon is, which is about 300 kilometers per hour on average top speed, wow! On this show, the falcon won't move at those speed but even in their "basic" speed, it was so hard for me to take the picture of the peregrine falcon while flying, they just move so fast - and I'm not a pro photographer also so small dots of bird is what I got.
|So lucky that an oryx came when we wait for the falcon show, it doesn't usually appear if they sense people are around so we are lucky :)|

|here comes the belly dancer|
You can see this falcon show before the safari with the car on the sand dunes, and after sunset all cars will go to the big camp with open tent and foods. The main attraction on this camp is the belly dance show. The dancer's body is very supple, she can bend or twist her hips easily (of course, she's a belly dancer) and it's quite amazing to see how she can move her hips and belly :D
After all those show, we then enjoy the show presented by nature: stargazing. They turn off all the lights at the camp so we can see the stars on the desert. A sweet ending before we leave to go back to the hotel.
Desert Safari is a mandatory thing to do while in Dubai, and you just have to believe me on that ;)
