What’s so wonderful is the Lovely story …. there were only two Giraffes which were a gift from Kenya to Sheikh Zayed allah yr7oma …. but look where they reached a big beautiful family ! … that what happenes when you believe in making a difference Like sheikh Zayed did !

I’ve seen and been into The Nature and Wildelife Drive at Desert Island Resort and Spa by Anantara Abu Dhabi …and you guys have just seen what I saw !

The ride was amazing …seat belts on …right on time we were all set and ready to go ..bottles of water are there for you 🙂 get your hat and sunglasses and comfortable shoes don’t forget to put on your sunblock cream 😛 its is hot but not that hot you can enjoy the cool breeze of the morning ( Spetemper 2011 )…it took approximately 1:30 hour for the ride .. just put in mind its a big Island and its a big preserve.. so we had to go around to look for the animals 🙂

My guide on that tour Mr. Andrea was a great lecturer too 😛 I had the chance to learn alot about the arabian desert and nature …I’ve learned more that I’ve posted here ….he’s been so helpful and kind to answer all my questions …Thank you for the great ride 🙂
