Why Travelers Choose This Tour
Enjoy all the desert essentials, plus the option for a private table with sparkling wine with 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 our new 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.

Fantastic tour, my only negative thing about it was that our group was dying of thirst. We originally were taking water along but was told there was plenty of refreshments. Which there is .... at the end
So you do all activities in the heat and then u can have a drink
Other cars handed out water at each stop
Our driver was too interested in having a cigarette and getting himself a drink
Just take a bottle of water and you will be fine
Driver picked us up at the hotel in time. The dune bashing was such a fun, adventurous, heart pumping experience. A must do when visiting Dubai. The camp was well maintained and the food was really good.
Great trip .. picked up from hotel and driven to desert ... driver was a "mad hatter" and gave good value (obviously confident with his vehicle).
Dinner and entertainment was a bit of a let down, but didnt spoil the trip.
it was a funny experience, the best thing to do in Dubai.
Obviously very much organised for tourists but all in all a very good experience that i strongly suggest to everybody.
The price of merchandise at the shops in the camp is too high.
