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.
Sample Menu Starters (choice of one):
Arabian-style salad with flatbread, coleslaw, tomatoes, olives, cucumber and hummus (chickpea dip)
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 Bashing....it 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.
This safari tour is highly recommended. I personally think this is the best tour. We had such a nice and relaxing time The guide was very nice. The food was excellent. The belly dance and Arabian dance were incredible. Everything was on time and well organised. Go for this tour!
This was the highlight of our time in Dubai! All the activities and experiences described online were provided to excellence! We also learned history and culture of the Bedouin people and Dubai. My kids wanted to do it again!
My family of 14 had so much fun with this excursion! The ride was outstanding, the entertainment was great and the food was the best. The camel ride was kiddy but it was fine by that point. The day was long and riding the dunes was so much fun for us! If you experience motion sickness I suggest you come prepared so that your fun isn’t ruined. Don’t miss this!!!!!
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.
