Welcome to the United Arab Emirates, a nation that was born on the 2nd of December, 1971, comprising a union of seven Emirates. While our expeditions encompass the entirety of this remarkable federation, our focus centers on the largest gem, Abu Dhabi. It is within the expansive deserts of this Emirate, including the revered Rub Al Khali (The Empty Quarter), that our journeys find their pulse.

The United Arab Emirates traces its origins back to fishing, agriculture, and the art of pearl diving. However, a seismic transformation has propelled it into the echelons of modernity since the discovery of oil in the mid-20th century. Amidst the awe-inspiring skylines of Abu Dhabi and Dubai, where towering skyscrapers kiss the heavens, lies a contrasting experience that we offer to our guests.

Our odyssey leads us deep into the heart of the desert, unveiling a tapestry woven with the riches of culture and the heritage of the Bedouin. Here, the artistry of Mother Nature is on full display, as she molds the dunes into exquisite contours. Occasionally, the serene gaze of a gazelle graces our convoy, a fleeting connection between two worlds as we traverse these timeless landscapes.
