Thinking myself to be quite the savvy shopper, I stumbled across this website offering desert safaris for less than half the cost of elsewhere, for what seemed to be the same tour. My fellow travellers how wrong I was. I can safely say the best activity was making fun of how awful the trip was with some South Africans! ‘Desert’, try ‘littered abandoned oil field just off the highway’. ‘Camel rides included’, more like ‘sit on an angry camel in a tiny pen, or pay for an actual ride’. ‘Unlimited soft drinks’, not until after 7... go back at 7 and it’s ‘not until 7.15’. The whole experience leaves you feeling short changed. Even the dancers stop halfway through a song, when they cut the music and usher the next act onto the stage! It’s so bad it’s actually funny... The entire trip (and low price) are just an opportunity to sell you extras, and if you politely decline the extras, you’ll be met with open, almost aggressive rudeness by the staff, who genuinely seem to enjoy being hostile to guests. Our driver, to his credit, was very skilled, kind, polite, and hardworking. Save your money and go out for a nice dinner... or spend a little more with a real company.
You get what you pay for. For the money the dune car ride, the show and food is really ok. Also the 4 by 4 Landcruiser pick up was in a nice car and a good driver. But: Forget the camel ride. It’s done in a small circle and takes about one minute. These poor animals therefore have to lay down and stand up again like every two minutes. And they hate it. This is absolutely awful! And always two people are put on top. The same shame are the two horses. One is in such bad condition, I don’t understand how some stupid tourists can’t see that and still want to sit on them. The ATV ride is in a fenced in almost flat field and the sandboarding I haven’t seen at all. Of course constantly someone tries to sell you some extras.
