If you have never experienced an Iftar in the UAE then you are missing out. We invite you to join a rustic Iftar adventure to remember where we set up a BBQ campfire showcasing traditional evening Emirati Iftar.

Set in a secluded, cool mountain wadi with a palm plantation farm you will feel like you are in the heart of Emirati culture from years past. Our camp will be made up of an outdoor Emirati majlis complete with cushions, carpets and lighting. We will enjoy two delicious Iftar meals under the stars.

You can learn about Ramadan traditions and the science of fasting. There will be time for prayer as well as some insight into the etiquette of Arabic tea and coffee making.

While for most, local culture stay up all night spending time with family and friends and spreading out the evening Iftar meal. You can choose to join us for some short activities during the night with us or relax between meals!
