What You Can Expect

Dubai Desert 4x4 Dune Bashing, Sandboarding, Camel Riding, Dinner

Desert Camp Site

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.

The tour was great but my tour driver was not. He tried to pick me up and when I declined he tried to drop me off a few blocks away from my hotel

Had a fantastic time with our guide Jaffa. It was certainly a case of scream if you want to go faster and he did. Always attentive making sure we were comfortable and safely strapped in. Jaffa had a great sense of humour and was allways happy to answer questions. Our camp experience was also very good, a mesmerising fire show and tannoura dance show kept us entertained while the barbecue was prepared. Great and plentiful food and drink and very clean facilities. The evening finished with a cheeky belly dancer before being taken back to our hotel. A great experience with plenty of other activities that we did not try this time. Would thoroughly recommend as there was something for everyone at a reasonable price.

It was a great experience. Dubai and Abu Dhabi trip was spectacular. We really enjoy the Dubai Desert trip. For those who have motion sickness it can be a little difficult, but for the most part is an unforgettable experience, the tour staff was fantastic, very pleasant with everyone. All the activities during night time at the desert were 5. Let them take pictures, at the end of the day you can buy a pen drive with all the pictures at a set price.
Thank you!!!!!
