- Dubai 4x4 desert safari from Abu Dhabi
- Ride a camel like the Bedouin
- Feel the excitement of sandboarding down dunes
- Get a henna tattoo painted on your hands or feet
- Watch traditional folk dancing and belly dancing
- Enjoy a barbecue dinner under the stars
En route to your desert rendezvous, stop off at a camel farm to see camels big and small. Try to master the art of riding a camel, go sandboarding down dunes and have a henna design painted on your hands or feet.
Continue your drive across the sand, watching the beautiful sunset and arriving at your campsite in time for more desert activities and dinner. After watching a mesmerizing performance of the traditional folk dance Tanoura, you’ll have worked up the appetite to feast on the delicious barbecue dinner provided.
Next, try smoking a shisha (an Arabic water pipe) and watch as a belly dancer performs around the campfire under a canopy of twinkling stars straight out of One Thousand and One Nights.

This was the highlight of our few [too many] days in Abu Dhabi.
Having decided that we didnot like the place at all and feeling miserable, we booked this tour.. Thank goodness we did. So much fun and very good value.
We were travelling as a family of 5 with ages ranging from 62 down to 6 and we all had such a great day out.
We had a great guide/ driver. He showed us a lot of things enroute to our dune bashing and told us a lot of interesting things.
The dune bashing was fantastic fun and we felt so safe at the same time with the driver we had at the wheel.
The camels were a delight and the barbecue and belly dancing was one of the best nights of our entire holiday and we had come from Bali!
I am not convinced the belly dancer was a real Arab girl, but she did a great turn and everyone enjoyed the show. There was also a young man performing an amazing dance routine which was just as good as the belly dancer and we were all so disappointed when our tempory henna tattoos eventually wore off once hime.
Yes, I would recomment this tour to everyone, a great diversion from the cities of Abu Dabi and Dubai.

Well organised and professional tour with friendly team all along the way. Gave a good insight into local area and culture, very informative and entertaining. Great fun with something for everyone. There are many local tour groups, these guys seemed the best by far.
