Geocache Description:

The cache has been placed in the Ramlat Al Hamra (about 27 km East of Hamim road), near one of the plantation that are sparsely dotting the desert of the Emirates of Abu Dhabi.

Getting to the cache location requires desert driving, for any attempt to reach the cache you should have a "real" 4x4 (i.e. not an SUV), be with a minimum of two other cars driven by people having desert driving experience, have all the necessary recovery gears, carry enough food and plenty of water, have a GPS based navigation prepared in advance of the trip.

The cache is a plastic container with a clip on red cap, it originally contained a small camel, a compass a pencil and logbook.

If you get there you will have enjoyed one beautiful drive, the dunes in this area have this two tones characteristic (light beige and reddish) that makes perfect pictures, and if you approach the cache location slowly and look carefully you should be able to spot gazelles, in particular on the South side of the big plantation where the government is maintaining a couple of grazing fields and drinking trough.
