Sights on this Buggy Tour

Camel Rock is an interesting sight with an equally intriguing history. This camel-head-shaped rock burst through the earth’s crust about 80 million years back and now lies amid the desert as an iconic piece of evolution. The Fossil Rock is also a geographical wonder, emerging from the seabed about 60 million years ago. The rock brought along countless animals from the ocean floor, which now lie as fossils along the trekking trail of this rock. With Instagram-worthy views all around, click pictures on your drive along the sea of sand.
