When you arrive at the desert, jump into your private 4x4 vehicle and travel across the sand to your first destination, the camel farm. Here, see different types of camels, then show off your balancing skills as you ride one!
Continue the drive across the Dubai desert until you reach your campsite, where you'll have the opportunity to go sandboarding down the dunes and get a henna tattoo on your hands or feet. Then, get ready to watch a traditional folk performance of Tanoura – a native dance – while you dine on a delicious barbecue dinner and try smoking the shisha (the famous Arabic water pipe) if you wish.
After dinner, enjoy a belly dancing performance around the campfire, and then head to your tent to fall asleep beneath the star-studded sky.
In the morning, have breakfast at the campsite and take in your last views of the landscape before you return to your hotel.
Upgrade to enjoy a quad biking experience. After a short safety briefing, don your provided safety gear, take control of your quad bike (or four-wheeler/ATV, as it’s also known) and follow your guide through sand dunes for either 30 or 60 minutes!
Please note: The afternoon and evening activities at the camp site may be shared with other travelers. The belly dancer does not perform during Ramadan (approximately mid-September to mid-October).

Was well worth paying extra for private vehicle. Broke my wrist quad biking, that hurt. Continued on with the trip, bandaging my wrist (which is now in cast). I took my tripod expecting to get some great sunset shots, I didn't. So don't waste your time dragging your tripod around the world. Food was beautiful. Plenty of choice of drinks. Toilets were clean. There was about 40 people for dinner and we were only couple that stayed over, which was great. Would not want to experience dinner and overnight in peak season when its busy, would spoil the experience.
