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 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.

Totally recommending this to be added to itinerary when visiting Dubai. IT'S A MUST! It was a good experience! The 4x4 Dune bashing is totally insane!You might be sick from the ride but u have got to try it at least once in a lifetime! Plus even if u are sick, the drivers are concerned enough to stop or slow down whenever possible - but still giving u the adrenaline rush from time to time! Camel riding, sand boarding were great! Falcon show too! Dinner and entertainment were great too!Really!
