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 Marmoom Oasis 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 a local Bedouin show. 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 guide Hashim was really great. Except for the quad tour, which is clearly a rip off, everything else was really good and recommendable to everyone. Insists on the quad tour that the half-hour time window is observed. We only got a quad that could hardly get up the sand hill due to lack of horsepower. So that my husband at least still has his fun, we exchanged the 2-seater quad for a single speed quad, one lap and it was over. Just a quarter of an hour, that's crap.

    Es war ein ganz toller und Ereignisreicher Tag! Unserer Familie mit vier Jugendlichen Kindern hat der Tag in der Wüste sehr gut gefallen. Sehr abwechslungsreich, die Fahrt durch die Dünen war sehr eindrucksvoll, viele Aktivitäten und auch das Essen im Camp war sehr umfangreich und sehr lecker. Vielen Dank Adnan für diesen tollen Tag!

    The best tour guide - Inaam !! It was an incredibly great trip to the desert, our guide was so cool and funny, he gave the tour his own charm :-) We can recommend the tour 100%, it's worth every cent! The evening show at the camp is well worth seeing. The food was delicious and there was enough. Was organized really well. Imaan told us a lot about Dubai and the desert during the drive, that was perfect. Thanks to the best tour guide!
