Half-Day Desert Safari
From US$82.00
Overview
Arranging a DIY trip into Abu Dhabi’s desert can involve lots of time and planning, making it easier to join a guided excursion. This tour delivers all the activities most visitors want—safely, smoothly, and stress-free—and with convenient hotel pickup and drop-off. Go sandboarding, ride a camel, dune bash, watch a belly dance show, and savor a barbecue dinner—all without transport or organizational hassles on your part.
What to Expect
Your tour begins at your Abu Dhabi hotel when you settle inside an air-conditioned 4WD vehicle and journey into the desert.

Head off-road onto the sands and enjoy a pulse-racing ride up and over the dunes. Then, hop out for a camel ride and to take photos of the desert sunset before resuming your dune bash en route to the next stop: a tented Bedouin-style camp.

On arrival, enjoy some classic Arabian hospitality with a serving of qahwa (Arabic coffee) or tea, plus fresh dates.

Duly refreshed, jump into the activities offered at the camp. Grab a supplied sandboard to try dune surfing, have a henna tattoo, and, if you wish, smoke a shisha (Arabic water pipe).

With your activities over, sit down to enjoy a traditional belly dance show and barbecue dinner before your tour concludes at your hotel.
