Begin with a pickup from your hotel in central Dubai, and settle inside your private, climate-controlled 4x4. Then, sit back, relax, and enjoy the views over the desert as you leave Dubai's skyscrapers behind and head into the UAE interior.
Enter an area of high desert dunes, and with your experienced driver-guide mastering the vehicle, go off road: crossing the sands and climbing the towering slopes. Hold tight as you reach the top and your driver spins the wheel so your 4x4 skids, slips, and slides back down.
Career through the rolling dunes for 30 minutes or so, and as the sun starts to descend, head for a viewpoint to capture photos of a brilliant desert sunset.
Continue to a Bedouin-style desert camp, situated within an area of undulating dunes. Hop out here, and take your pick of the desert activities and pursuits on offer. Take a camel ride and have a henna tattoo inked onto your hands or feet. If you wish, try puffing on a shisha (water pipe) and enjoy a souvenir photo opportunity (additional cost) dressed in traditional Arabic costume.
As darkness begins to fall, feast on a sumptuous barbecue and buffet dinner with non-alcoholic drinks such as sodas and water. Alcoholic drinks (own expense) are available to purchase from the bar.
Then, as the stars twinkle overhead, be entertained by a program of live music and dance, including sequinned belly dance shows, and mystical whirling dervish-style tanoura dancing, with wide-skirted artistes spinning hypnotically across the floor.
After the entertainment, hop back inside your private 4x4 and return to Dubai, where your experience finishes with a hotel drop-off.
