Exhilarating Desert Safari, Including BBQ Dinner from Dubai

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Guests can hit the dunes for a day, courtesy of this Desert Safari Tour. Customers will be picked up between 3pm and 4pm from Hotel or Residence. Once in the desert, guests will embark on a series of activities including dune bashing and sand boarding as well as camel riding and henna tattoo painting. Refreshments and snacks will be included, while a barbecue dinner caters towards meat eaters and vegetarians alike. In the evening, photo opportunities are available with guests in traditional Arabic costumes such as Abaya and Kandura, before a trio of dance shows take place. Tanoura, belly dance and fire show will cap off the day before clients are dropped back off to Hotel or Residence sometime between 9pm and 9.30pm.
  • Escape the city on a desert activity and dinner experience from Dubai
  • Enjoy the desert sands and culture, with a dune bash, camel ride, and more
  • Go sandboarding, get a henna tattoo, and ride a quad bike (extra cost)
  • Barbecue buffet dinner, live shows, nonalcoholic drinks, and transport included
What to Expect
Board your climate-controlled 4WD vehicle at your central Dubai hotel and follow tarmac highways into the desert. After a while, hit the sands for a dune bash. Power up the slopes and pause precipitously at the top before sliding back down in an exciting descent. Head to a high dune to admire a stunning sunset and then ride to a Bedouin-style camp. Here, take a breather on the cushions before enjoying the desert activities laid on for guests. Sandboard the dunes, ride a camel, enjoy an Arabic-costume photo session, and, if you wish, try a water pipe (shisha), get a henna tattoo, and rent a quad bike (additional cost). As darkness sets in, watch belly dancing, Whirling Dervish (tanoura), and fire dancing shows, and savor a barbecue buffet dinner with unlimited soda, mineral water, tea, and coffee. Your experience then finishes with a hotel drop-off.
