What You Can Expect

Red Dune Bashing in Dubai Including Desert Camp Experience with BBQ Dinner

See the sun set over Dubai's dunes on this desert experience

Start your experience with a 4x4 pickup from your central Dubai hotel and zoom into the desert around the city. Upgrade option available for a private pickup. 
On route, listen as your guide shares information about the region and how Dubai rose from a fishing port into a cosmopolitan, wealthy city on the back of the discovery of oil during the 1950s and 1960s.
See the light brown sands gradually shift into vivid orange and pink hues, and watch as the flat expanses crinkle up into undulating dunes all in a kaleidoscope of deep reds and golds.
Head off road into an area of bright red dunes known as the Lahbab region. Have your camera ready to capture what look like giant beanbags of sands, and then hold tight you cruise toward the highest slopes. 
Then, feel the adrenaline race as your 4x4 ploughs up the dunes before sliding and slipping back down the slopes, churning up billowing clouds of sands in the process. 
Afterward, take pictures of the sunset from the dunes before driving on to a Bedouin-style camp hidden in the middle of the desert.
Enter the torchlit camp and settle inside a cushion-strewn tent. Savor some fresh Arabian coffee and dates, and smoke a shisha (water pipe) if you wish.
Then, take your pick of desert activities. Perhaps take a camel ride, surf the dunes on a sandboard and get a henna tattoo painted on your hands or feet. If you fancy upping the pace, take an exciting buggy ride (additional cost) over the sands.
As dusk falls, dig into a scrumptious barbecue dinner of dishes such as kebabs, hummus and salads accompanied by sodas and mineral water, and additional drinks (own expense) from the bar.
While you eat, enjoy a colorful belly dancing show and tanoura performance, where fast-spinning dancers whirl across the stage along with a captivating fire dance show.
Finally, return to Dubai by 4x4, where your experience concludes with a hotel drop-off.

What an awesome trip!!
Our driver RAM was brilliant and thank god he had time to show off his skills before we joined the convoy. whilst in the convoy Ram felt frustrated not surprising with us egging him on but when he was able to he completed numerous car stunts which were amazing!
The food at the BBQ dinner was fine although, not too sure about sitting on the floor to eat it but it gave everything an authentic feel.
Would we do this trip again, you bet we would in a heart beat :

This tour was well worth every penny and more! We were picked up by our tour guide DANIEL and whisked off to the desert in a new 4x4!. As we headed to the dunes we began to see a sea of deep reds and golds. As we headed off road toward the highest slopes we began sliding and slipping up and down the slopes, churning up clouds of sands in the process. DANIEL stopped so we could take pictures of the sunset from the dunes before driving to a Bedouin-style camp in the middle of the desert. We choose to take a camel ride a first for my husband and I!, Afterward, we were offered a wonderful barbecue dinner While we ate, we watched the show, belly dancing and a fire show dance! At the conclusion off the dinner, our driver returned us to our hotel in Dubai. This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Dubai. The dune bashing was amazing and the food and entertainment at the camp was terrific! The only thing I would say to improve it, is to let the people know how much time will be spent at camp. After standing in line to ride the camel, we didn't have much time to enjoy the show and the BBQ. a definite must do if you are going to Dubai.

Barbaque dinner was tasty . First time camel ride, an experience that also .
Pick up from hotel accurate.
