What You Can Expect

Dubai Desert Morning Tour in 4x4 Vehicle: Camel Ride, Quad Bike Tour, Sandboarding and Camel Farm

Enjoy four exciting desert activities on a Dubai 4x4 tour!

Leave your central Dubai hotel in the morning to travel into the desert by air-conditioned 4x4. Complimentary sodas and mineral water are available during your experience so feel free to take a drink whenever you wish.

Gaze at the empty desert on route and hear intriguing tales about the region’s history and geography as told by your guide.

After approximately an hour, pull up at the desert base and hop on a quad bike. After a safety briefing and instructions, strap on your helmet, and take off with your guide at the head. 

Race along the dusty trails and rumble up and down the desert hills. Enjoy the panoramic views as you drive and stop for photos along the way.

Next, visit a camel farm and see the hardy herbivores that have been used as desert transport by the Bedouin peoples for centuries. 

Snap pictures of the animals and any cute young camels in the enclosures.

Then, enjoy a memorable camel ride. Master the animal’s rolling gait with tips from your guide, and learn why these sturdy animals make an ideal form of desert travel.
After your ride, have a go at the hot desert sport of sandboarding. Grab a supplied sandboard and slide and skid down the dunes like a snowboarder. Feel your adrenaline race as you speed down the sands, and when you’re ready, challenge your fellow travelers to an adrenalin-pumping race.

After your sandboarding session, finish your tour with drop-off back at your Dubai hotel. 

Please note: the order of activities described above may vary on the day of your tour.

Awesome experience. Our guide was very knowledgable about the history of Dubai and gave us lots of interesting information on the ride out to the desert. The ATV's, sand boarding, and camel ride were all great fun! Would recommend to anyone visiting Dubai.

This was a lot of fun, the driver to camp site was hilarious. He drove over the sand dunes in the truck really fast giving the passengers a thrill. The ATV and camel ride was awesome. The sand boarding was a total workout climbing back up the hill.

Amazing!! Our tour guide was spectacular. He arrived to pick us up from the hotel on time and prepared us for a great day. During the ride to the desert, he provided us with information about Dubai as well as the upcoming developments of the city. He had a great personality and spoke English very well. The tour was great. The 4 wheelers were very fun! I don't really like the sand boarding but that's a personal preference. It had nothing to do with the tour guide or the company itself. All three associates were very helpful and friendly during the entire safari. I highly recommend this tour and company!!

I feel this was really good value for money. We got to do everything in a reasonable amount of time. In the Dubai heat you don't really need to be out all day. The driver was extremely prompt. He was waiting for me as I arrived at the foyer and was really friendly. He introduced us to the other day trippers and was really informative on the journey to the desert. He gave us a brief history lesson.
Even though it was Ramadan they gave us ice cold water which was much needed. We aren't used to the heat and really needed it!
I would 100 recommend this trip. And would be happy to use them again in the future :

Really enjoyed the experience, the quad bikes were easy to ride and the guide took us on quite a long trip through the dunes with a stop halfway to try out some sandboarding, and finishing with a camel ride. It was all very well organised and there was no hanging about. We were supplied with lots of water and the quad bike ride was just right, not too difficult to be scary and not too easy to be boring! Sandboarding was good, only downside was the walk back up the dune afterwards! Our guide was very helpful and knowledgeable.
