  • Beautiful desert. Which site!!! We take a lot of eyes off it throughout the crossing. Really crazy. To do in Jeep or camel Personal I had sympathized with a top taxi (Jamal: 962 7 7214 0571) super friendly, which is clearly passionate.

  • I never thought that desert landscapes could be so fascinating and inspiring!!! The unimaginable combination of mountains and dunes, overflowing colors, sandy waves and sunset, devoid of speech!!! And dinner at the Bedouins - a special thank you! The lamb cooked in the earthoven just melted in his mouth!
