What You Can Expect

4WD Abu Dhabi Desert Safari with Camel Ride, Dinner, and Belly Dancing Performance

4x4 Dubai Desert Safari from Abu Dhabi with Camel Ride, Dinner and Belly Dancing Performance

Leave your central Abu Dhabi hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned 4x4 and enjoy the views as you travel deep into the desert surrounding the city.

As you travel, hear intriguing facts about Abu Dhabi’s history and gain insight into the traditional desert culture still held dear in the UAE from your knowledgeable local guide.

After a while, pull up at a desert camel farm to discover more about these hardy animals, traditionally used as transport by the UAE’s original, semi-nomadic Bedouin peoples.

Snap photos of the camels and with instructions from your guide, take a camel ride across the sands. Enjoy the desert views from your perch and try your hand at other desert activities.

Hop on a sandboard to ‘surf’ down the dunes, enjoy a stint of dune bashing as your expert driver steers your 4x4 up and down the sandy slopes, and perhaps get an intricate henna tattoo painted on your hands or feet.

Continue deeper into the desert and stop to soak up a magical sunset, watching as the radiant sun sinks below the dunes.

Arrive at a torchlit desert camp and sit down to a mouth-watering Arabian barbecue dinner of dishes such as hummus (chickpea dip), kebabs and fresh green salads.

Absorb the enchanting setting and after dinner, enjoy a belly dancing show around the crackling campfire. If you wish, puff on a shisha (Arabic water pipe) under the stars to finish your Arabian-inspired evening.

Your experience ends with a hotel drop-off back in Abu Dhabi.

Had a wonderful experience and met some great people. We were all picked up from our hotels and the driver was lovely. We went 4x4 driving in the desert which was amazing and something everyone should do while they are visiting Abu Dhabi. We got to pat camels and at the dinner we were able to have a quick ride. The dinner was a banquet which was great and the entertainment was also amazing.
I highly recommend this tour.

FUE UNA GRAN EXPERIENCIA ESTAR EN EL DESIERTO Y LOS AUTOS SUBIENDO POR LA DUNAS. LUEGO LA CENA Y LA PINTURA CON HENNA. DE TODO LO QUE NOS OFRECIERON LO UNICO QUE FALTO FUE MONTAR EN CAMELLO. PERO DE VERDAD LO REPETIRIA

Well I was very skeptical prior to the booking. There was not enough information available about the Tour operators online and I had to rely on Viator. However, it turned out to be a fantastic experience. All I had to do was after reaching Abu Dhabi, I had to call the tour operator and fix my pick up time. It was an amazing experience. Highly recommended.

Dune Bashing was an awesome experience, nice combination of thrill and fun. My kids enjoyed the camel ride and dune buggy. My wife had the henna tattoo done on her hand and it was awesome. Dinner was good and the belly dance was a nice add on. My kids rated the desert safari as the best of all the things that we did in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Overall, we had a great experience and it is a good value for the money that we spent.

Fantastic tour. The 4x4 Sand dune bashing was exhilarating and the sandboarding was fun. Camel ride was only once around a small circle, which was a little disappointing. The food was lovely for dinner.
