The Original experience

  • Set off on a breathtaking safari in the Dubai Desert
  • Feel the adrenaline on a dune-bashing experience in a 4-wheel drive vehicle

  • Visit the traditional desert camp of Al Khayma

Full description

After pickup from your hotel in a 4-wheel drive vehicle, you’ll head off with your local guide to the desert, just 45 minutes from Dubai. Upon reaching the Lahbab Desert, you’ll have some time to relax. For the more adventurous, you can try quad biking, which is an optional activity.  Once your vehicle is ready, you will hit the desert for a dune bashing ride. Feel your stomach leap as you ride up and down the tall red dunes. Marvel at how the vehicle tackles impossibly steep inclines and the uneven terrain of the sand. 

After dune bashing, you will have a chance to try sandboarding or simply admire the scenery around you. Make sure you take plenty of photos of the scenic desert landscape. 

The next stop is Al Khayma camp, where you’ll be welcomed with traditional Arabic coffee, sweets, and dates. Then, visit a camel farm to learn about how these animals are a key part of traditional Bedouin culture. After enjoying a short camel ride, you will be dropped back at your hotel in Dubai.

Absolutely fantastic desert safari. Nadeem was our driver and guide. He was prompt, explained everything thoroughly and most importantly made sure we had lots of fan on the day. The camel ride, sand boarding and dune bashing were a joy. We really loved this part of our holiday in Dubai and wouldn't hesitate to recommend OceanAir Travels, and especially Nadeem as your driver and guide in the desert. We look forward to booking this desert safari on our return to Dubai. Nadeem and OceanAir Travels, well done!! We really enjoyed ourselves.

Was such an awesome experience! From start to finish, really enjoyable. The camel riding was fun, they took lots of photos of us. Got to hold a falcon - again lots of photos. Dune bashing was very cool, scary but fun at the same time! Sand boarding was a really different experience, but really fun. Zahid Hussain was really attentive, took lots of photos and made it really enjoyable - talkative and took lots of photos. He made the experience the best :) Throughout, they made sure we were topped up with cold water bottles and refreshed. Thanks so much! Highly recommend and would definitely do it again :)
