Full description

Escape the hustle and bustle of Dubai and marvel at the silky red sand and towering dunes of the surrounding Arabian Desert. Go dune bashing and sandboarding, ride a camel, and take an optional quad bike ride.

Satisfy your sense of adventure, whether traveling as a family, couple, or solo. Choose from a shared or private option, and experience the legendary hospitality. Get picked up from your hotel in a 4x4 vehicle and journey to the remote desert area of Lahbab, approximately 50 kilometers from Dubai city center. Upon arrival at Lahbab, take a short break while your driver deflates the vehicle's tires to get a better grip on the sand. Hop on a camel to take pictures or have a short 2-3 minute ride on them around a track. Maybe even choose the optional quad bike experience (age-restricted).

Then, head into the desert onboard your 4WD Land Cruiser and hold on to your hat as the vehicle slips and slides on a rollercoaster ride across the dunes. 

Go deeper inside the desert to get the best views possible and catch your breath on the highest dune. Try your hand at sandboarding and "surf" the sand, or just relax and take photos of the spectacular views.  After the desert adventure, get dropped off back at the hotel.

We had our trip with Shah Hussein who provided us with first class treatment. Pick up and drop off from our hotel and kept us cool in the heat with water. He was an aggressive driver but also safe. The only negative I would say about the trip is the lack of clarity on what is included and what is extra. The place we arrived at included “quad bikes” inside a small track although I had the expectation of a open desert ride which ended up being an upgrade cost of $200 additional USD. Still very fun but the expectation wasn’t clear.

Had a good visit with Ali, he was humorous and took extra efforts to click some special effect photos. Quad biking was great. Sandboarding and Camel Ride is fun but very short. Camel ride was literally ~ 1-2mins, kind of joke. May be we had expected more (based on our great previous camel ride experience in Jaiselmer - India).
