Ideal for culture connoisseurs, this desert safari features a heart-pounding dune bashing session, a camel ride, live cultural performances including belly dancing, a photoshoot in Arabic costume, and a BBQ buffet dinner. From Dubai, visit an oasis and a camel farm in the Arabian Desert before watching a magical sunset. Learn about Arabian culture at a desert camp inspired by a Bedouin village, try your hand at sandboarding, and let local artists decorate your hands and feet with henna. Dinner, unlimited soft drinks, and hotel pickup and drop-off in Dubai are included.
  • Evening desert safari including a camel ride, three live shows, and BBQ dinner from Dubai
  • A comprehensive introduction to Arabian culture
  • Visit a camel farm and desert oasis in a luxurious 4x4 SUV
  • Watch a magical Arabian Desert sunset, experience a camel ride, and try your hand at sandboarding
  • Get a henna tattoo and watch live shows of belly dancing, tanoura, and fire
  • Enjoy unlimited soft drinks and a BBQ buffet dinner
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off in Dubai are included
Your desert experience begins with pickup from your Dubai hotel, where you greet your guide and board an air-conditioned, 4x4 SUV destined for the Arabian Desert.

On entering the desert, your guide deflates your tires and takes you on a rollercoaster ride as you crash through the dunes in your off-road vehicle. Then, visit an oasis and travel through a camel farm before stopping to watch a stunning sunset. Continue to a desert safari camp designed to represent a traditional Bedouin village for a camel ride, used as a means of desert transport by Arabs for centuries.   

If you’re a thrill-seeker, try your hand at sandboarding down sloping desert dunes or opt to ride a quad bike at your own expense. Recline on soft Arabian carpets with a shisha pipe as professional artists adorn your hands and feet with henna and, once decorated, pose for photographs wearing traditional Arabian dress—please note, if you wish to purchase photographs, this is at your own expense.

Then, prepare yourself for the visual beauty of a belly dancing show, where professional dances swish and sway during a tanoura dance performance and fire show. Following the show is the feast, which includes shawarma, salads, meze, Middle Eastern sweets, and more. Soft drinks and water are unlimited, but alcoholic beverages are at your own expense.

Your tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

I had absolutely amazing experience going on this attraction. Mainly because of the tour guide, Sanjay. His expertise and professionalism made it a memorable experience for us all. He also gave a personal touch which made it very special for me. He happened to know it was my birthday, and he gave a surprise for me by informing this to the organizer at the Camp whom announced and asked everyone sang a Happy Birthday song to me. Sanjay also such an excellent driver maneuvering in the Dunne bash. He picked perfect spots for photos and was a great photographer too. Sanjay ensured we did all the experience offered and explained in great details of the rundown. He made the day ran smoothly. Thank you so much!

The Red Dune Desert Safari was only a brief experience or taste of activities of life in the desert. This is all you have time for in a couple of hours. The activities were entertaining & fun, the BBQ gave us a taste of traditional cooking. But the first stop where we all waited in an air conditioned room which filled up by all the tours coming in was a waste of about an hour, purpose unknown. Some did quad bike ride here but it seems like we had to wait until everyone from each tour had done this before we could go. Some had to wait outside in the heat. I can't imagine what it would be like in peak times. Waiting around for other vehicles also took up a lot of time
Nice trip

Excellent trip. I enjoyed the trip. The driver was very skilled and helpfull. Attention: when driving a Quad in the dessert, kindly do advise customers to wear long trousers, for the heat of the engine and the warm dessert wind can scourge your ankles.

The length of actual ride in the sand should have been much longer. Spoken and understanding english of the guide who picked us up from hotel and bought us back to hotel needs improvement. But he was courteous and polite.

Really great experience! My wife and I enjoyed this entertainment! No bad surprise! All the activities have been done as planned! The dune bashing is really like a roller coaster! We had a lot of fun! The buffet dinner, the sand boarding, the camel ride, the live shows... Wow!!!! To be honest, it's really a lot for the price we paid (78AED = 39AED x 2). But not so bad, we could easily give tips ;-) A special mention for Hemayat, definitely a great and remarkable guide! He was both professionnal, cool and very efficient! It's a real pleasure to have a guide which knows what he's saying! He always keeps his smile (since the begining until the deposite to the hotel), always takes care of us to be sure everything is ok... There is no doubt, he's extremely experienced! Ask for Hemayat Ali, you will not be disapointed! I recommend him at 100%. PS: I also let a comment on google map...
