Full description

Enjoy a day-to-evening journey across the Dubai Desert and feel the thrill of driving through red sand dunes. Visit a Bedouin desert camp, where you can partake in cultural activities and feast on a buffet with three cuisines, including Emirati, Moroccan, and Arabian, followed by a BBQ at sunset. Drive out of the city and head into the peaceful desert aboard a 4-wheel drive vehicle. When you arrive, enjoy a relaxing rest stop and go on an optional quad bike ride.  Next, sit back and strap in for a dune-bashing ride across the stunning red dunes of the Lehbab Desert. For an extra kick of adrenaline, get the chance to try out sandboarding. Continue to Al Khayma Camp and be welcomed with Arabic coffee, sweets, and dates. Say hello to the camp’s resident camels and, if you’d like, go on a 10-minute camel ride across the sand. During your time at the camp, you can smoke Shisha, try Henna painting, and meet the resident falcon expert and his loyal bird.  Savor three distinct cuisines at the Al Khayma Buffet: Emirati, Moroccan, and Arabian, followed by a live BBQ at sunset. While you eat, be entertained by a traditional Bedouin show. Finish your dinner on a sweet note as you indulge in various local desserts. As a final treat, the camp will go dark, giving you the opportunity to take in the peaceful ambiance of a desert night before being returned to your accommodation in Dubai.

    Ramzan was an excellent guide and went out of his way to make the day special. Packed full of activities and he took us to an amazing serene sunset in a very quiet beautiful location. Dune bashing fantastic with skilful driving. I even had a go at sand boarding (sitting!) at 58! Camel riding enjoyable too. Great evening followed with planet gazing, good food and entertainment. Thanks very much, fantastic photos to take back to England.

    One word: Memorable! Our first ever trip to Dubai was enriched by this thrilling desert safari, filled with so many activities. All bookings were hassle free and the communication was timely. We extend our heartfelt thanks to our guide - Mr. Imran who ensured a comfortable yet fun-filled safari, sharing anecdotes and backstories throughout the way. He went out of his way to make us feel comfortable and even allowed us extra time at many activities! Thank you GetYourGuide and Mr. Imran for making this an adventure of a lifetime!

    I was a solo traveler and had a great time on this desert safari! This tour is such a great way to experience what it is like to spend a day in the Arabian desert doing all sorts of fun activities. The safari was excellent and followed the itinerary quite well. Our guide was Bilal Ahmad and he was a great tour guide and was always willing to answer any questions we had throughout the trip; he was a great dune bash driver as well! I was the only one who didn't book the quad bike experience in our group (didn't think it was worth it at the time), but after watching my group have a blast on the quad bikes while I was waiting inside the waiting area, I would totally recommend it! Seems to be worth the extra money. The Al Khayma Desert Camp is probably the best part of the tour because this was when you get free time, unlimited camel rides, get to do shisha for free whenever you want, and there is GREAT, unlimited food, entertainment, and drinks. Overall, 10/10.
