Many people, especially families, have told to me about the barr camping trips they go on regularly. To be honest, I never thought the day would come were I would be able to say… yes, I’ve done it too.
We, the Destination team, headed out in our jeeps and 4*4s via King Road, at around 3 p.m. Fortunately, we arrived at our destination (Bahra) within an hour. The journey was filled with moments of awws, ooos and wows. Personally, every time I looked at the surrounding landscape I couldn’t help, but mutter SubhanaAllah over and over. The mountains, the sand dunes and the cool breezy weather really did create the perfect setting for our trip.
Upon arrival, we were greeted by an organizer who led us to the campsite. A huge tent was put up: a section for seating, one for praying and putting your bags/luggage and a food prep section.
The day was filled with adrenaline rush activities: dune buggy rides, Jeeps, horse-riding -they even had a pony-, karaoke, a falcon show and an evening BBQ meal that really was the icing to the cake.
This is Sheikha. Throughout the day she was perched on her wooden post, observing us as we went about our activities. Funny story alert. At the end of the night, her trainer called out for her and guess what? She flew off into the night. We were told she would fly back to her post in the morning.
We would like to thank the organizers for the great day they planned for us. The whole team thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We advise our followers who are looking for a bit of a thrill, to go out and experience it. Take a big group of friends and have a great time in the barr.
