Liwa, the million dollar course in the desert of UAE

I was last Christmas in UAE, invited by a very good friend of mine who lives there since more than 30 years! We spent an amazing Christmas there, mostly in the desert with locals. And then she took us to the desert, at the border with Saudi Arabia, at Liwa, a resort place for emirs of the whole area where they meet for 1 week for a camel course in the desert!

Thousands of camels and people gather there every year for the biggest and richest camel course in the world! Most of the time this part of the desert is empty with only one very luxurious hotel in the middle of nowhere: the Tilal Liwa hotel!

  1. I didn’t know that there are courses on how to ride a camel! But I guess if you are in the desert it makes perfect sense!
