The Original experience

  • Enjoy a morning safari in the Dubai Desert
  • Feel the adrenaline on a dune-bashing experience in a 4x4 Land Cruiser
  • Slide down the sand dunes by trying sandboarding
  • Visit the traditional desert camp of Al Khayma
  • Ride a camel and learn how they are a key part of Bedouin culture
Full description
After pickup from your hotel in a 4x4 Land Cruiser, you’ll head off with your local guide to the desert, just 45 minutes from Dubai. Upon reaching the Lahbab Desert, you’ll have about 20 minutes to relax. For the more adventurous, you can try quad biking, which is an optional activity. 

Once your 4x4 vehicle is ready, you will hit the desert for about 30-45 minutes of dune bashing. Feel your stomach leap as the Land Cruiser drives up and down the tall red dunes. Marvel at how the vehicle tackles impossibly steep inclines and the uneven terrain of the sand. 

Once the drive is over, 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. 

Next stop is Al Khayma camp, where you’ll be welcomed with traditional Arabic coffee, sweets, dates, and light brunch if you have selected the upgraded brunch option.

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.
