What You Can Expect

4x4 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.

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.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2016

An amazing trip to do for the experience of being two miles from a main highway yet completely in the wilderness of sand. The skill of the drivers is extraordinary and if you can get the front seat which I was lucky enough to claim then you will have a fantastic view of what is to come. The food at the dinner was very good and the belly dancing fun. Highly recommended for all ages.

This was a fabulous experience and my children just loved the dune bashing! We visited a Camel farm which was interesting however we didn't get much information on the venue. We then went to the Bedouin camp where the camel ride, dune surfing, belly dance and dinner was held. Recommend going early to enjoy the short camel ride. We also had henna tattoos done, dressed in traditional clothes and had photos taken. The belly dancer was exceptional, and the dinner delicious. Highly recommend this experience.

The tour was amazing. It was 6 of us in one car, which is comfortable and you feel safe during the ride over the sand dunes. Our touristic guide Naeem was approachable, very helpful and kind to us. He picked us up at 2:45pm in front of hotel my recommendation is to be on time because everything is scheduled and it's not nice for rest of the group to wait. First, you are going to see wonderful view of the desert, take some photos of course : then the tour will continue with crazy and exciting drive over the sand dunes to a camel farm, where you will be able to pet them and see cute baby camels. Last stop where you have toilets is where you are gonna have tasty dinner open buffet with salads, meat, pasta and fruits tea, coffee, dates and nonalcoholic drinks. Before eating you should try dune buggy additional 50 AED, totally worth, you can do camel ride and code bike, try traditional cloth and take pictures with falcon all included as a part of tour. Also, after dinner you will be invited to smoke shisha and at the end it will be amazing belly dance performance. Meanwhile, they will also switch off the lights so you can lie down and enjoy in the beautiful view of the stars.
I highly recommend this tour as part of your visit of Abu Dhabi. It's amazing experience and you will enjoy every part of it.
