Day one Saturday 7th January: Looking at the awesome Dubai skyline with its epic range of towering skyscrapers, it’s difficult to comprehend that not too far from the city is a mysterious ghost village gradually being consumed by the desert. Located near Al Madam Sharjah, the history of this village is mysteriously bewildering, to say the least.
Fuelling the mystery surrounding this eerie location is that no-one truly knows why the village was abandoned in the first place. So, let’s visit this abandoned village, take lots of mesmerizing pictures and watch sunset. Then we will head to Maleiha Archeological center to our camp spot where we will be greeted with Karak tea and coffee and settle in our tents.
We will enjoy some games until dinner time and then we will have a star gazing session with a professional Maliha Archeological Centre guide.

Day Two Sunday 8th January: We will have a 4x4 drive to fossil rock to enjoy Sunrise and then head back to enjoy Breakfast at the camp. Then we will head for a walk and to see some historical sites in Maleiha. Then we head back to Dubai. Note: you have the option of visiting Maleiha archeological Museum on your own if you are driving your own car.
