Destination Desert

Destination Desert

Bahrain’s annual camping season has been well under way for the last few weeks and will continue until April. Traditionally, these few months, thousands of Bahrain’s families set up ‘camp’ in the vast rocky areas in the south of the country in an area they then call home.
During those few months, enterprising businessmen set up convenience “tents” all over the place and mobile telephone companies install communication masts to ensure everyone stays in contact with the ‘outside world.’
The only flip side is the camps are still extremely close to Bahrain’s vital oil and gas infrastructure, in spite of the authorities trying to move them away to a safer distance.

    1. True. While there is no real desert in Bahrain whatever have is also not properly managed and campers are risking their lives by being so unsafe. I wish there is more enforcement of regulations.
