View of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting party in Al Khatam sands near Jebel Hafeet (Jabal Hafit). On the right one man unloads a camel couched in an area of flat sand dotted with small plants. On the left a saddled camel stands in a ghada (Haloxylon persicum Bunge) tree. Behind him four men sit together beside the tree. In the distance two camels graze on the rolling sands dotted with vegetation. This image was taken between December 20, 1948, and January 27, 1949, during which time Wilfred Thesiger stayed with Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan in Al Ain and joined him on a number of hunting excursions.
Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
