Camping in Al Ula

It was a long drive from our town to Al Ula and to Madain Saleh. But it was a fun weekend hanging out with colleagues in our three colleges. We went sightseeing, watched the sunsets, admired Al Ula’s panorama from the summit, drove up via a dangerous zigzag road, fed animals, and climbed rocky mountains. Of course, we rested a bit in our comfortable camping site with an air-conditioned tent, too.

Sahari Campsite is surrounded by giant boulders of sandstones in various shapes and sizes.

The nearby desert can be very hot at midday.

The surrounding area is good for hiking, though there aren’t any hiking trails.

The camp site is actually pretty impressive.

It has a wide cable TV and an air-con with a humming noise. 🙂

The three-piece bathroom was a surprise to me. Tiny but clean. We had no hot water – but who needs that when it’s boiling hot outside? 😀

They have a buffet restaurant, too, priced at SAR100. That’s pretty expensive, right?

At night, guests can sit around the camp fire, play games and tell stories of unrequited love. LOL…

Too bad, we didn’t bring marshmallows. They also have a DJ playing music for the guests – but don’t trust his choice of music. 😀 You can, however, request a song and he’ll play it for you.

This is my second time camping in Al Ula. My first experience was at Madakhil Camp Site.
