    What to Expect
    Our guide will receive you from the select location or hotel and take you for a desert safari in one AC 4WD Land Cruiser. After around an hour’s journey, you will reach the desert. There you will get some time at a restroom for relaxing / warming up, while your vehicle is being equipped for desert ride with suitable tire pressure and other adjustments. You may choose to ride a Quad bike in surroundings as an optional extra.

    The safari begins with dune bashing... during which your vehicle will conquer steep dunes of sand in an action packed drive. After enjoying about 30-40 minutes of dune bashing, thrill yourselves further by trying sand boarding (sand surfing). Since prior training is not needed, anyone can take part in sand boarding. Your adrenaline rush will reach a new level with this surfing activity! Next we will proceed to ‘Al Khayma’ - an authentic desert camp.

    At the Al Khayma desert camp, get a welcome in the typical way with Dates, Sweets, and Qahwa (Arabic Coffee). Feel the real Bedouin encampment as you sit in open air or Majlis - cushions and low tables to sit on with carpets spread all over.

    Near the camp, take a ride in a Camel caravan / group. You may also witness the sunset view (subject to situation, not guaranteed) from the sunset dune, close to Al Khayma.

    Back at Al Khayma, enjoy smoking Shisha, try Henna painting. Also do an Arab makeover in local costumes and take few snaps with one Falcon resting on your hand or shoulder. Soon you can watch the colorful performance of Tanoura dance, and have a dinner open buffet that includes Mix grilled, Salads, Desserts and all. In addition, the Belly dance will keep you entertained.

    At last you will be returned to the select location or hotel.

    The desert tour with Oceanairtravel was excellent. It's all very touristy, but once you're in Dubai, you should have done this desert tour once. Roshin was a great driver and he took us safely through the desert. Also the performances in the camp were really...More
