MICHAEL S R

Our tour guide, Bolly was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. He and the other workers at rhis camp work very hard with long hours. The show was ok. The highlight was sitting around the campfire after most everyone went home. The food was good. The beds were very basic (like a large cot. Communication from the tour operator was good. The early morning camel ride was unecessary.
