A Desert Safari Night to Remember

It was a freezing night of partying and gathering of Filipinos, mix with some other nationalities. Few days before the said event, we already bought our tents, sleeping bags and other paraphernalias to prepare us for a one night at Desert Safari. Neither one of us had experience an overnight party at the desert and nobody can tell what to expect from it so we are all excited.

On the day itself, everybody at our flat were busy packing their own stuff. Far-ouT was one of the Marshalls so he had to leave early with the rest of the guys to assist.

Yours truly was left behind with the other guys and gals. We were advised to come early at the meeting place at Zabeel park so we can choose our bus going to the location. Oh well, we were actually the last to arrived and needed to wait for a bus because most it left already.

Finally after some time, second to the last bus came to take us for a one and a half drive to the site where a desert ride are waiting for us to take us to the campsite. Upon arrival, we were greeted with music and people setting up their tent.

For a Dhs 100, you get to experience a freezing night of bonfire, food, booze and music. Everybody was in their party mood. Dinner was offered. You get to choose form Beef, chicken and pork.

Everybody enjoyed the night.

To recap, the tent that we bought is the cheapest that we could get. Nevertheless, it served it purpose already

We also bought this chair and glad that we did. It was a comfortable resting place.

I wasn't able to get a photo of our sleeping bag. But thank goodness it gave us the protection and comfort for an uber cold night at the desert. The only hassle is the lack of washroom or bathroom. The organizer were smart enough to set-up this improvised toilet for the ladies.

They made fun of me while taking a loo. Good thing I was ready for it. Hahaha

I hardly slept through the night but I was awake with a morning breeze and sunrise. It was the coldest morning I had in years. Freezing than my Mt. Pulag climb.

Time to pack away and head back to the flat to get that much needed rest and sleep.

It was a Desert Safari night to remember indeed.
