Desert Safari in Dubai with Barbecue Dinner and Live Shows
From US$59.00
Dubai’s desert isn’t just about sand and dunes: It’s a living part of Emirati traditions and history. With this tour, experience the full desert-and-culture package in one afternoon and evening—difficult to arrange independently. Enjoy a dune bash, camel ride, sandboarding, and henna art. Watch belly-dancing performances and savor an Arabian Nights atmosphere with dinner under the stars. Hotel pickup and drop-off make the experience ultra-smooth and convenient.
What to Expect
Depart your Dubai hotel by air-conditioned 4WD and journey into the desert.

Once outside the city, go off road and enjoy a dune bash: zooming over the slopes with a guide/driver at the wheel. Then, head to an oasis and camel farm before climbing up a dune for photos of the desert sunset.

Next, continue to a safari camp that's designed to replicate a traditional Bedouin settlement. Here, try sandboarding and camel riding, and enjoy an optional quad bike drive (own expense). Then, slow the pace by getting a henna tattoo, donning Arabian robes for souvenir photos (own expense), and trying a shisha (Arabic water pipe).

Watch live belly dance and tanoura (whirling dervish) shows and savor an open-air buffet of barbecued meats and Emirati specialties with unlimited soda and water. Alcoholic drinks are available to purchase.

Your experience finishes with a drop-off at your hotel.

Nice experience!

The dune dashing (without toddler) is cool. The live entertainment is stunning. The food is decent based on the price of the tour. Would recommend to family with children because of the camel ride, sand boarding, and live entertainment!

Great experience

We loved it so much! It was a hell of an experience. We got picked up from our hotel close to the airport. When we arrived in the desert we went for a rollercoaster ride inside of the car. It was superb driving the dunes....More

An amazing experience

What an amazing adrenaline pumping ride in the 4x4. Make sure you have only a light meal before the journey.
