What You Can Expect

Dubai Desert 4x4 Safari with Quad Ride, Camel Ride, BBQ Dinner and Belly Dancing

Savor a delicious BBQ dinner after your quad safari

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 15-minute 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. See the Itinerary for a sample menu.

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.

I was on the tour on 11th February. The weather that day wasn't great but our tour guide Sheru kept us busy and shared a laugh with us. He was good fun and professional at the same time. The tour includes plenty of activities so you definitely don't get bored while dinner and dance show make it a complete half-day trip in the desert near Dubai. Highly recommended!

We had the most funniest driver ever, made the Safari experience even more wonderful. All I can say it was amazing, its a must do if you visiting Dubai.
The dessert ride was incredible but please be advised very bumper so be prepared but its great.
The Quad bike ride was good only down fall it was very dark when we was riding them and not much lighting but didn't stop me :.
I'm not really a camel ride fan but it looked good very busy though so get in line asap.
The BBQ dinner and entertainment was great loads of little shops to buy souvenirs little huts where you could try traditional clothing and smoke the shisha.
there is a bar if you wish to purchase alcohol, but we just stuck with the free soft drinks no need to drink as long journey back to hotel.

Visiting Dubai again in April with the whole family, booking this trip again.

Great guide, really fun day/ evening. Be careful on the quad bike that you get a helmet which fits is the only thing I could say which wasnt so good but everything else was really excellent. Dune bashing is a laugh, camel riding and quad biking and the belly dancing were all somehow fitted into the trip and made it a memorable experience. Never had a bad one from Viatours.
