Sounds of Silence Dinner

We booked into the famous Sounds of Silence Dinner at the rock which also has the grande finale of the Field of Light.

What a fantastic evening we had – check it out on Tripadvisor. It began with pick-up from our caravan park then we were spirited out to a high sand dune for pre-dinner drinks and canapes as we watched the sunset over the desert on one side and the ever changing colours of the rock as the sun went down. Wow!!!

Then we moved onto a banquet dinner under the stars sharing a table with 8 other strangers. Everyone just clicked and that made for a great dinner. The menu went like this…
