What I had envisioned for our camel safari based on how it is advertised everywhere was a glorious sunset with camels thrown into silhouettes against the sun (i.e. gorgeous pictures) and sleeping underneath a sparkling and starry night sky.
Well, that didn’t happen!
We had pouring rain throughout both evenings and nights spent in the desert and even got to live through a pleasant sand storm (sense the tone here, please).
Despite the weather setbacks, the three days in the desert were an experience I thoroughly enjoyed; the peace and quiet was exceptional and the food our guides, Taga and Kalu, cooked fresh with every meal was mouth-wateringly delicious. Furthermore, with the constantly changing weather, the light was different every hour playing with the colours and atmosphere.
