Real Expeditions Campsite
The first few images that come to the minds of most expat travelers or residents to the UAE are the comforts the country offers them - from luxurious resort stays to limousine rides and doorstep deliveries of the most exotic and unusual products. But long before the UAE we know of today came into existence - the region was built on rich history, the Bedouin heritage and the entrepreneurial culture of seasoned adventure enthusiasts and dreamers alike.
Real Expeditions brings these very adventures through to those of you who are looking to get the 'real Middle Eastern' experience. Get out of your comfort zone to explore the untainted Al Faya desert on horseback or a 'fat bike' through a natural trail, paraglide and soar above the expansive Mleiha landscape, and spend a night with us under the serene desert sky. Learn how to scavenge and rough it out in the wild with our survival training adventures. Get a taste of going back to basics, while exploring the very land and environment where history was made.
Feel what it’s like to take flight over the beautiful desert of Mleiha while our professional Pilots take care of the handling. Fly as High as 400 meters into the morning sky.
