What You Can Expect

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

Savor a delicious BBQ dinner after your quad safari

Depart your central Dubai hotel aboard an air-conditioned 4x4. Then, with a professional driver at the wheel, relax as you venture out into the desert around the city.
After roughly 45 minutes on the road, arrive at the quad station and climb on to your rugged, four-wheeled bike. Then, don your provided helmet and gloves; listen to a safety briefing and instructions; and set off on your exciting expedition behind a guide vehicle.
Zip across the soft sands, plough up and down the desert slopes, and as you gain in confidence and skills, tackle steeper dunes and more challenging terrain.
As the afternoon light fades, take a break to shoot photos of the desert sunset, and boost your energy with soda and snacks. Then, after around an hour on your quad, pull up back at base.
Rejoin your 4x4 and continue to a camel farm. Here, view these hardy desert animals and enjoy a camel ride over the sands. 
Then, drive on to a Bedouin-style camp hidden into the folds of the dunes. Relax in the torchlit grounds, savor some Arabian coffee and dates and if you wish, smoke a shisha (water pipe).

Duly refreshed, check out the traditional Emirati activities on offer around the camp. See some beautiful sand art, get a henna tattoo on your hands or feet, and later, dig into a generous buffet dinner of tempting Arabic dishes, such as kebabs, hummus and flatbreads, accompanied by soda and water. See the Itinerary for a sample menu.
During your meal, watch a sparkling belly dancing performance, as well as a tanoura show, with whirling dervish-style dancers spinning at dizzying speed.
Finally, enjoy a 4x4 journey back to Dubai where your experience concludes with a hotel drop-off.

What a wonderful experience! We had a great time riding those ATVs through the desert for a full hour! The tour guides even stopped for some amazing picture taking! The camel rides were short but fun! There were so many activities at the camp before dinner and the belly dancing, such as souvenir shopping, holding a falcon, henna tattoos, and so forth! I highly recommend this tour! This was the highlight of my trip!

Fantastic all in one experience. You literally get everything you could want out of a dubai desert safari, and its a 330pm pickup so you can enjoy your entire day first. First class all the way.

Excellent experience...would definitely do again!!! Our guide chocolate was a delight. An hour riding four wheelerS in the desert was a blast, and the dinner and entertainment far exceeded our expectations!

Best of all the essentials to be seen on this tour. Variety is the spice of life and this tour has it all, Quads, Camels, Great Food, Music, Dance, Smoke a Water Pipe, eat dates and drink Arabica coffee in the desert. WOW is all we can say now. Excellent guide who educated us about many Dubai subjects on the drive both ways

I have purchased many tours on Viator. But this one by far takes the cake. We really got our money and #39;s worth on this one and it and #39;s an excellent way to see another part of Dubai. There were so many more activities then just the ones in the description of this tour.

My wife and I had an awesome experience in the desert!

First of all, although our driver picked us up from the hotel a little late, he explained the difficulty getting to us through local traffic. The other participants in the SUV he picked up prior to us said that the driver took alternate routes and u-turns in an attempt to get to us. For tha, we appreciate what his effort!

Secondly, durning to commute to the dessert, our drive pointed out historical sights along the way. Moreover, while driving the Quads, our drive joint us and periodically stopped to take pictures, capturing memorable photos of me and my wife at sunset and beautiful backdrop of the dessert. We got more than we expected riding the Quads!

Third, the Camel Ride was fairly short, but definitely worth it! We took photos that we'll cherish and share with friends and family. The Camel Ride was 1 on my wife's bucket list during this tour!

Finally, the BBQ Dinner and Belly Dance was pretty good. We experience the Arabic dishes, which wasn't to bad. There were a lot of people assembled together for the Belly Dance, but we wish it was a little more intimate setting. However, it was a great show to close out a fantastic evening. Our driver made all the difference in this wonderful experience!

Thanks Viator!

Ticky Ramman owner of Sand Trax takes this very seriously and that itself shows a great deal of commitment towards customer satisfaction. The rides on the dunes are an experience by itself and a must do for every Dubai tourist!

Great tour. Camel ride was bogus and I didn’t have high expectations but everything else was great
