A day in Wadi Gnai

Wadi Gnai is a small oasis in the middle of the desert, just 20 minutes drive from Coachhouse. Water is found here most of the time, this time only very limited, but even this will make a difference in the desert.

Our day started with a camel ride from the entrance of the wadi. This is a beautiful experience; the narrow valley with its majestic red glowing granite mountains at sunset, the occasional desert fox (if lucky,) and Acacia trees.

 After an easy climb we arrived at the oasis. Unfortunately we did not see any flowers in bloom this time, but we still enjoyed the green grass, date palms and the Acacia trees with dragonflies buzzing around us.  When arriving back at the camp we ate a delicious Bedouin dinner around the fire. The Bedouins sang traditional songs and then it was time to lay back and watch the stars and to enjoy the silence of the desert.
