    Unique Experience with real science!

    This expedition was in two parts - the first in the Empty Quarter we were camped deep in the desert with camels, sand foxes and scorpions for company. Amazing night skies, cooking on campfires, and camera trapping for mammals in the dunes.
    The second half was in a coastal wadi exploring caves and pools for dragonflies, and the elusive Arabian Leopard. Brilliant company and real wilderness..
