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.

I did it before about 15 years ago. It was very nice then and was still great this time as well. The desert ride was bumpy as it should be. The different stops were for camels, falcon, henna tattoo, camping site and the night show were top.

This is the real deal Desert Safari. The Dune Bashing is awesome. But, be warned eat light before going on this tour, Dune Bashing should not be done on a full stomach. This was the only tour company I saw out Dune Bashing and again this was the highlight of the Safari for me. The Bar-B-Que was excellent with Beef, Chicken and Lamb as well as rice and curry. The tour allowed us to see a working Camel Farm which was very interesting to me.

Overall it was a great experience. Mustafa my driver was the best.

We had great time in Dubai with the Desert Safari tour. They know how to take care of everything. Surprisingly, the food was very good as well. I recommend anyone that is vegetarian to go on this tour.

This desert tour led by Sahib from Orient Tours met and then exceeded my expectations. We experienced the desert in 4 x 4's by driving through the dunes. It was exciting and adventurous. The dunes are exceptionally beautiful. One cannot do this trip without gaining respect and awe for those who survive living in the desert. This is a must do! Sahib was full of information, considerate and lots of fun.

I had sooooo much fun. The tour guide, Mohammed, was great. One the drive to the desert he pointed out different sites and was nice enough to answer all my questions about life in the Emirates. Dune bashing was a perfect thrill! The camp was nice although not a lot of time for all the activities.
