What To Expect

After pickup from your central Dubai hotel, relax into your air-conditioned 4x4 and journey into the desert. On route, chat to your guide, who acts as your driver, and hear fascinating stories about Dubai and the desert around you.

Go off road and head into an area of dunes for an exciting dune bash. Hold tight as your 4x4 ploughs up the sandy slopes before skidding and sliding back down.

Continue to a beautiful, Bedouin-style desert camp nestled in the heart of the dunes. Hop out of your 4x4 into the torchlit grounds and enjoy a revitalizing Arabic coffee and fresh dates. If you wish, try an aromatic shisha (Arabic water pipe) along with your coffee.

Duly refreshed, take off on a quad bike ride. Listen to a safety briefing and instructions, pull on a provided helmet, and zip and zoom around the camp and desert terrain.

Visit a camel farm and enjoy a short ride on one of these hardy desert animals. Afterward, admire some examples of delicate sand art, and if you wish, get a henna tattoo etched onto your hands or feet.

As darkness falls, return to the camp for a delectable barbecue dinner. Menus may vary, but typical dishes include shawarma (spit-roast meat wraps), Arabic salads and kebabs teamed with complimentary sodas and additional drinks (own expense) from the bar.

During your meal, enjoy a glittering belly dance show and watch ‘tanoura’ dancers spin, whirling dervish-style, across the floor, in time to rhythmic Arabian music.

Finally, return to Dubai by 4x4 and end your experience with a hotel drop-off.

Traveler Tips


It is advisable to carry cash on the trip with you to purchase some items that might add value to the experience.
So many activities included for the price, you just can’t beat it.
I think winter time is the best time to visit.

Enjoyed the moment, from the ride out, the short camel ride, the quad ride was nice, as well as watching the sunset. The meal was nice, entertainment was fun, loved my henna tattoo and although I did not partake in the hookah it was nice to know it was available.

Peter_W, Jul 2022
Brilliant day out. Fantastic service from our driver, and ended with a quality buggy and camel experience. The show and dinner was good but the local shop keepers putting to much pressure on people to buy things at the dinner table. Everything else was 1st class

Kamran_A, Jul 2022
Ghulam was an excellent host and extremely attentive to all. My wife was feeling sick due to the dessert ride, Ghulam provided clear instructions and especially if anyone feels sick or unwell he would stop. He was very caring towards my wife who gets queasy very easily. She opted out the quad bike as she braved out the dessert ride. The whole tour was phenomenal, pick up from hotel, followed by dessert stop for pictures, then dessert fast crazy fun ride, quad bike ride, camel ride then followed by snacks. The sharwama wrap was very dry and not tasty. Live show was amazing, hats off to the fire blowing guys they did brilliantly! The Arabic dance guy also deserves an applause for his spinning. Belly dance not my thing but wife enjoyed that. Overall it was worth the price, nice land cruiser, EXCELLENT HOST GHULAM provided spot on service this is how people should be! He was giving us plenty of water and encouraging us to keep ourselves hydrated. There is a shop that sells things, had to haggle with one. Photographer also takes pictures so we purchased all 3! haggled him too! worth the tour. Thanks guys

Best Desert Safari EVER!
Ebony_J, Jul 2022
I’ve booked several tour while in Dubai and this would has been by far the best one yet! First our tour guide John was absolutely amazing. The entire experience (from driving through the dunes to get there, to the ATV and camel rides to the staff being super helpful) was worth every penny. Tip for future guests make sure to bring a head wrap and sunglasses to keep sand from getting in your hair and eyes.
