Important to Check
Its important to check, when youre booking a place on a camel
safari, what is included in the price youre paying. Find out what
arrangements are being made for accommodation, food and drink and other
essentials. In some camel safaris, mineral water is not a part of the
package, in which case youll have to bring your own. Find out for sure
what youre getting before you book.
When you start for a camel safari, be aware of few things. Remember that
youre travelling through the desert - its dry, and if youre
not careful, you could get dehydrated. Drink plenty of water- at least 2 to
4 litres a day- and keep yourself well covered, to prevent sunburn. Wear a
sunhat and sun glasses and apply suntan lotion on your body, if you dont
want your skin to start peeling.
