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 6-hour 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 shawrma 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.

From pick up from the hotel lobby to return the most amazing tour. Driver Nur was extremely competent ensuring our safety but providing thrills on the dunes. The camel, falcon experience through to the endless shows continued to surpass so much enjoyment. The entire trip, hospitality and wonder truly the most amazing and great value. A must do!

When going to Dubai, this trip is a real must. Considering it is a full afternoon and evenings entertainment, it is great value for money. The dune bugging in the land cruisers was fab, a right buzz. Plenty of stops for photos along the way, you stop for a falconry display as well as at a camel farm, where you learn some different aspects of living in the deserts, relating to these animals. The evening entertainment was also great, the camel ride???? They do a lap of about 50metres, so we didn't bother tbh, we went into the arena as such where you can sand board, smoke shisha, all free water and pop, they do serve alcohol, however like all over UAE it is very expensive. The food was great, lots of in a buffet style and was very well cooked. The show consisted of a whirling dervish dancer a fire dancer and a belly dancer, all excellent. There is a professional photographer along the day, where you can purchase the whole days worth pf photos everyones, so you have to sort through,105DHR as well as videos of the dune bashing and the evenings entertainment. Big word of thanks to our driver and Guide Jaffer, very knowledgable very friendly and really enjoyed his job as you could tell by his great driving over the dunes. Thanks for a great day out!

Well worth the price and time. From the moment they pick you up to the moment they dropped you off. The highlight of the tour was the 4x4 Dune was exhilarating. The camel riding was fun, but short, the shows were great and surprisingly, the food was GOOD. Only disappointing thing is the OVERpriced market they had. It's literally 2 - 3 times more than other places.

One of the most exciting things what ever happened to me. Strongly recommend it to anyone who has a great experience in this type of recreation.
