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.

    The BEST part of our trip to Dubai by far! It was so well thought out and organized - worth every penny! The driver picked us up from the hotel (the only odd thing was that they let you know the pick up time the day before - a little more notice would have been helpful) and drove us 45mins out of the city. The driver was our guide and very informative and helpful. Unfortunately my husband got motion sick and we had to skip the dune bashing portion but the guide was great about and it and took us straight to the camp and gave us a private sand surfing lesson. The camp was was set up beautifully with a sunset lookout point on top of a hill. The base camp had henna artists, fresh masala tea, Arabic desserts, buffet dinner, performances and unlimited camel rides. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming The night ended with an amazing star gazing experience with telescopes at the lookout point. Beyond amazing! Highly recommended to anyone passing through Dubai!

    The activities were very well organized and so much fun! I’ve done this a couple of times but this was definitely the best. Our driver Imran was also extraordinary, he was an amazing driver in the dunes, knows what he’s doing, he took great pictures of us and was always looking after us and helping us with the activities - highly recommend!
