Full description

Embark on an unforgettable day-to-evening journey across the Dubai Desert. Experience the thrill of driving through red sand dunes and feel the hospitality of a Bedouin desert camp, where you can partake in interactive cultural activities and feast on a delicious BBQ buffet. Drive out of the bustling city and 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 the 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, do Henna painting, and meet the resident falcon expert and his loyal bird.  The buffet barbecue begins at sunset. While you eat, be entertained by traditional dances performed in the center stage. Finish your dinner on a high note with a tasting of various local desserts. As a final treat, the camp will go dark, giving you the opportunity to take in the peaceful ambience of a desert night before being returned to your accommodation in Dubai.

    Our going guide was Nazid and he was fab! Nazid made the day very easy by being informative and giving us time in between everything instead of rushing! He is very kind and always made sure that we were looked after through out the trip. The day was planned out nicely with enough time between each stop , the buffet barbecue was better than I expected and the views were beautiful! This was our first time booking with GetYourGuide so would definitely recommend booking this excursion!

    An absolute must thing to do when visiting Dubai The planning and communication when you book is excellent The drive to the sandunes us about an hour, and then when you get their you have the opportunity to other activities But the main activity driving into the sandunes is just exhirlarting Our driver Asif Khalil was just brilliant, his skill level and understanding is brilliant, he makes the car do things it just shouldn't do But remember the motion is intense so if you suffer from any type of motion sickness this may not be the trip for you But you get time to stop in the sandunes as well for that all important picture Then you move on for approx 45 mins to again be out in the desert, for an exceptional BBQ dinner. The food is so freshly cooked and there is plenty There's plenty of other entertainment on offer as well Do not leave Dubai without doing this trip
