rest and play
Whether you are here on your own, with family or friends, bringing the dog along too or just looking for some simple time out. There are plenty of things to do in between the chill times if you choose to.
Get closer to nature when you stay with us!
Enjoy taking time off to re-discover the delights of the Emirati natural world.
A natural break to immerse yourself in the great outdoors amongst the Gaff trees, desert dunes and gardens.
From intricately busy bees and bugs, beautiful dragon flies, twittering birds the swish of the long grasses you can reconnect with your inner self and be grounded in all things natural. In the mornings step outside to soak up the un-interrupted morning "Dawn Chorus" of the local birds. Feel rejuvenated as you breath in the fresh country air and enjoy a gentle amble with your family or dog before breakfast.
In the shade of the Gaff Trees makes you feel like you are a world away from the city bustle. Take in the gentle babble of the running water, hear the swish of the pond reeds and enjoy the simplicity of doing nothing and re-charging your human batteries.
In the evenings let the night sky envelope you, allow the stars and moon to embrace the shadows. BBQ and dine under the stars, hear the water falling into the pond, cuddle up with your dog or better half and enjoy simple conversation with fellow guests and your hosts around the camp fire.
Take time out to see what is around you, from the smallest bug, the cheerful birds or the mountain view. Relax, unwind and most of all "switch off" to the modern world during your stay.
On arrival on camp you will be given a QR code to scan and discover more things to do on and off site.

Traditionally games have always been associated with camping. Bring some board games along with you.
The benefits of playing board games is well known for bringing people closer together, improves brain function, teaches you to be patient and helps reduce stress and encourage laughter. Get a box out and play either inside your tent or outside in the fresh air.
On arrival you will see the donkey paddock. Our small herd love being treated with apples and carrots. Enjoy interacting with them, learn a little about them too. Tip: bring some Polo's along, they love 'em!

Camping would not be complete without the obligatory BBQ dinner, bring your own food along to put on the barbecue all set up ready for you to use. Finish up your evening under the stars in our outside Majilis area for great company, snuggle with your dog and discuss how big the universe really is around the fire pit together with some marshmallows, chocolate biscuits to make the marvellous and delicious S'mores!
