Full description

Discover Dubai on a day-long journey across the Dubai Desert. Enjoy thrilling activities like dune-bashing and sandboarding, and take the chance to relax at a camp with traditional snacks and activities like henna and shisha. Finally, enjoy the sunset through a powerful telescope.

After being picked up by your Safari Captain, make the first stop of your journey to stretch your legs and relax, or take the optional quad bike ride. The adventure begins with a 30-40-minute dune bashing ride deep in the Lahbab Red Dunes desert. Try sandboarding (surfing over the dunes) for an extra thrill before going to Al Khayma Camp. The Al Khayma premium camp will be all set to welcome you with Arabic coffee, sweets, and dates once you finish the desert safari. Say hello to the camp’s resident camels and, if you like, hop on the camel for a ride across the dunes. Enjoy and participate in the camp's activities, which include camel feeding, camel riding, henna painting, etc. These are followed by an appetizer with a live snack station, Arabic coffee, & tea, and even a shisha station. Tuck into 3 different buffets featuring Emirati, Moroccan, and Arabian cuisines, followed by a live BBQ, live bread-making stations during sunset, and camp activities. Feast your eyes on the Arabian Entertainment live show. Finish your dinner on a sweet note by relishing various local desserts. The camp’s ambiance will change as the sun goes down, allowing you to take in the peaceful desert night. Spot the stars in the desert sky through a high-power telescope on a fascinating stargazing session before calling it a day. Get dropped off at your hotel after a beautiful day of adventure and entertainment.

We had a brilliant day / night trip (safari) made special due to our driver Ramzan @Ramzan, many thanks. Beginning with the quads (don’t forget the sunscreen beforehand) and the sand bashing and onto the camel ride, shows and food, highly recommend, well worth the money. We had very friendly company with Thomas and his family all day, made the trip perfect. Thanks.

Driver was named Tehseen and he was extremely hospitable and accommodating on our tour. He accommodated a late pickup as required, drove us to the activities, explained all in detail and told stories and anecdotes along the journey. He was very professional and handled the simultaneous accents of my Scottish, my wife's English, our 2 American friends and our 2 German friends, all at once. His English was very good. I would come to this camp again.
