Full description

Visit an oasis in the desert close to Dubai city and go driving over the dunes in an SUV. Experience Bedouin culture after with traditional coffee and more, then savor a BBQ buffet.

After pickup in Dubai, head to the Masayaf Desert Camp. Once there, enjoy driving in 4-wheel SUVs through the desert for an exciting 20 minutes or so, going up and down the dunes, skidding, sliding, and bashing these majestic giants.  Next, visit the camp for a taste of a traditional experience of the Bedouin culture. The camp itself is a premium ethnic Bedouin camp with a rustic and original look and feel that endeavours to offer you tradition without compromising on quality and authenticity.

Try a traditional Gahwa (traditional Arabic coffee on arrival) upon arrival, along with dates and refreshing wet towels. Tea is also available. Follow this with some native starters, which include shawarma and falafel.

Stroll around the camp and find a variety of activities, including a souvenir display stall, a henna tattoo corner, and a photo studio area where you can adorn traditional local dishdashas and abayas and get your photographs snapped

Have a camel ride and try your hand at falconry, or ride a quad bike for an additional charge. After you settle down, watch local entertainment, such as a mesmerizing tanoora dance, a daring fire show, and a spellbinding belly dancing show that promises alluring moves to enthralling music.

While taking a stroll around the camp or during the ongoing entertainment, you have a choice of quenching your thirst with soft drinks and water. Alternatively, head to the live bar to buy some spirits or beer at a charge. Later, taste a sumptuous three-course menu with fresh grills, hot freshly baked breads, a hot buffet, and desserts from the local kitchen, followed by fresh fruits. As the tour hosts bid farewell, a vehicle will drive you back to your hotel or destination.

Lovely excursion with our guide, Zeb, who went the extra mile during the trip, to stay on after the bbq camp to talk to us about his knowledge of UAE. His driving was very skilled on the dunes and we especially liked it when he cranked up the music. The fun photos we took, with the help of our guide, will be a reminder of the lovely memories we made.

First of all this is an excellent, must do tour but know in advance that it takes 8-9 hours from Dubai Marina and definitely NOT the 5 hours advertised. It took us 100 mins to get there and spent an hour "hanging around" at a dune buggies stop which we were not interested in. Despite all above we had a great day with Zafar our driver and guide. Really enjoyed the camel farm with the young camels, the short camel ride and thoroughly enjoyed the Dune Bashing, Sand Boarding and the wonderful desert sunset. After all this activity, we drove further into the desert to the Bedouin camp for the BBQ and excellent belly-dancing/fire show. Zafar was an excellent driver especially on the dunes. All in all a great trip but be honest about how long it takes!

Zeb ist ein grossartiger Führer. Er hat das gesamte Programm von Anfang an erklärt, auf der Safari hatte meine Tochter Angst und er war sehr verständnisvoll. It is macht auch sehr gute Photos. Abendessen war sehr gut organisiert, auch war sehr lecker. Meine Kinder sind auf dem Kamel geritten und meine Tochter hat das Hena benutzt. Ich empfehle diesen Ausflug weiter! Wir waren 3 adults und 2 Kinder.
