Lovely trip. The San Dunes where a laugh. The dinner is so nice and plenty of it went back for extra. They have a bar and it's not expensive although soft drinks are free. We got Henna painted on our hands which looked lovely. The Camels and Sandboarding are a laugh. The show was great. The good thing is they have fans in the tents as it was about 40 when we where there. Would definitely recommend this trip
