In late August last year I went with a friend of mine on a night safari of the desert at Dubai (at the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve). I did the tour with Arabian adventures.
I had fairly low expectations from the tour so was quite surprised by the fact that the tour turned out to by quite nice. We managed to see Arabian Oryx and a variety of smaller animals including desert rats. We didn’t manage to see any scorpions thankfully although the tour guide was quite disappointed and kept trying to see if we could find one.
I was looking forward to stargazing through the telescope- unfortunately the telescope settings were off (and despite the best efforts of the guide and another associate could not set it up). I still managed to snap one or two nice photographs from the evening.
