What You Can Expect

Private 4x4 Adventurer Safari Including Sandboarding

Head into Dubai's dunes to try sandboarding on your private safari

Start your 4-hour sandboarding experience with a pickup from your central Dubai hotel. Meet your private guide, hop inside your comfortable 4x4 and set off on your journey into the UAE desert.

Enjoy the views of the passing desert landscapes, and watch as they gradually turn from wide-open plains to small and ever larger orange dunes.

As you travel, hear fun facts about sandboarding from your guide and learn how it’s one of the most popular desert sports in the UAE.
After a while, arrive in an area of gorgeous golden dunes and head for some slopes that are ideal for learning to sandboard.

Hop out of your vehicle and, after a safety briefing, get your supplied sandboard and instructions on how to balance on it and steer it from your guide. Then, with your guide watching and offering tips, try slipping and surfing down the slopes.

Gain in confidence as you practice and move up to some steeper, longer slopes as you wish — you’re in control of the pace and progress you want to make.

If you’ve upgraded to include a quad biking session, finish your sandboarding and hop onto your rugged desert vehicle. Listen to a safety briefing and driving instructions, and thrill as you zip over the sands.

Afterward, return to Dubai by 4x4, where your experience ends with a drop-off at your hotel.

We had such a great day out. The dune bashing was such fun and the driver was brilliant. He was very skilled and friendly. There were plenty of drinks and we were looked after very well. The sandboarding was great fun and definitely worth a go. We recommend this trip to everyone.

This was an excellent half day. The highlight of our week in Dubai. The combination of the sand dunes in the 4x4 and then quad biking and sandboarding for the kids was really good. All combined with a friendly and interesting driver. Great value for money.
