Dubai’s desert is a must-see, but a self-guided trip isn’t enough to fully grasp its beauty and culture. This tour lets you experience the desert every which way: on a dune drive, camel, and sandboard. Plus, enjoy a barbecue dinner at a traditional-style camp. The attractions list also includes souvenir photos, henna art, fire shows, and more, so you get an unadulterated desert experience—both traditional and modern.
  • Desert sports, culture, and dinner experience from Dubai by 4WD vehicle
  • Wide range of activities: sandboarding, camel rides, dune bash, and more
  • Feel like a Bedouin with a barbecue dinner and belly dance shows at a desert camp
  • All-in: hotel transfers, dinner, sodas, shows, and core activities included
What to Expect
Begin with pickup from your central Dubai hotel, and drink in the views as you trace the emirate's tarmac roads into the desert. After a stop for photos of the scenery and falcons, head off road for a dune bash. With a driver-guide, zip across the slopes, opting to tackle higher dunes if you’re feeling adventurous. Next, take photos of a desert sunset before traveling to a Bedouin-style camp hidden in the sands. Then, after snacking on coffee and dates, throw yourself into the activities on offer. Ride a camel, dress in Emirati robes for souvenir photos, try sandboarding, puff a shisha (Arabic water pipe), and get a henna tattoo—the choice is yours. Later, watch belly dancing, fire, and tanoura (whirling dervish) shows before finishing with a barbecue-buffet dinner under the stars. Return to Dubai, where your tour ends at the original departure point.

I highly recommend this safari during your stay in Dubai. Our driver/guide Naveed was friendly and professional. The dunes ride was great and Naveed made us feel very safe with his driving skills. Food and entertainment after the drive was amazing.

It all feels a bit like cattle....being driven from one mass activity to the next. All the time being joined by hundreds of other people, being dropped of by their own white 4WD cars, doing the same thing. At east location it's all about selling you more things... the
