What You Can Expect

4x4 Dubai Desert Safari with Dune Bashing, Sandboarding, Camel Riding and BBQ Dinner

See traditional Folk dancing and belly dancing

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 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.

Lovely trip. The San Dunes where a laugh. The dinner is so nice and plenty of it went back for extra. They have a bar and it's not expensive although soft drinks are free. We got Henna painted on our hands which looked lovely. The Camels and Sandboarding are a laugh. The show was great. The good thing is they have fans in the tents as it was about 40 when we where there. Would definitely recommend this trip

Bobby was our tour guide and he was just exceptional. We were collected on time and taken out to the desert for dune bashing. This was fantastic and was really enjoyed by everybody in our group. After this we were taken to ride quads extra if you want to ride them as they are not included in the package and also to ride a camel this was slightly disappointing as it only lasted about 1 minute. After this we were taken to enjoy sandboarding, a spinning dervish and also a belly dancer. In between this we also had a BBQ which was thoroughly enjoyable.

A must for anyone visiting Dubai! Absolutely loved the Dune Bashing! We were collected on time and taken to the desert in fantastic 4x4 jeeps. Camel ride was short as was the sandboarding but was still a great experience. The food was awesome as was the belly dancer..A MUST for families/q
