Why Travellers Choose This Tour

Enjoy all the desert essentials, plus the option for a private table with sparkling wine on this tour.
Meet your guide at your central Dubai hotel and board a comfortable air-conditioned 4x4. Enjoy the views as you leave the city skyscrapers behind and set off on your Dubai desert tour.

Gaze at the Dubai sands and hear all about the desert’s ecology and its history as you travel. After arriving at a traditional camel farm, see the hardy herbivores up close and take a memorable camel ride within the enclosures. Discover more about the different species of camels used in the region, and then return to your 4x4 to continue your desert journey.

Afterward, arrive at a desert campsite nestled amid the Dubai sand dunes and leave your 4x4 again to sample the thrills of sandboarding.

Following a safety briefing, practice riding a sandboard with tips from your guide. Once you’re confident, race your fellow travelers down the drifting dune slopes.

Then settle inside the camp as the sun sinks below the dunes and plains. If you wish, ask one of the henna artists to paint a tattoo on one of your hands or feet.

Watch a colorful tanoura folk dance and visit the onsite shawarma station or savor a succulent barbecue dinner. Dig into typical Arabian dishes such as hummus (chickpea dip) and marinated chicken. (See below for a sample menu.) As a finale, puff on a shisha (Arabic water pipe) if you wish, and watch a brilliant belly-dance performance around the campfire.

Upgrade to an Exclusive Dubai Desert Safari by enjoying the delicious barbecue dinner at your exclusive table with a bottle of sparkling wine and fruit basket.

Soak up the desert setting as the stars light up overhead, and conclude your tour with 4x4 drop-off at your Dubai hotel.

Unbelievable day, would recommend everyone to do this trip. Boys rented Quads and one of guys in charge took them to different track for longer they had a blast.
The Desert!

Really good dune bashing, enjoyed the camels and falconry, dinner was quite nice, but I thought the shows were mundane. My driver was awesome, went out of his way to give a great time and with heaps of information.

Our tour was arranged by Orient Tours and it was amazing inclusive of everything that was mentioned in the description. We were picked up from our hotel approximately within 20 minutes from the specified time. Then we were taken outside the city for Dune bashing which was too much of fun for me and my family. Following that we went to the campsite for other events and buffet. Thanks for arranging such a wonderful event.
Best Tour Ever!

Our guide was literally the best guide we've ever had on any tour. The whole experience was incredible. The sand duning in the cars was something we will never forget. The desert experience was incredibly beautiful, delicious and so fun. MUST DO IN DUBAI!
