Full description

Escape the hustle and bustle of Dubai and experience the calm of the surrounding desert in the morning. Marvel at the silky red sand and towering dunes, providing picture-perfect views of the surrounding landscape on this 4-hour Arabian Desert tour.  Satisfy your sense of adventure, whether traveling as a family, couple, or solo. Choose from a shared or private option, and the legendary hospitality. Get picked up from your hotel 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.

My partner and I had a wonderful morning exploring the Dubai desert with Ibrahim as our tour guide. From the camel ride and dune bashing, to the quad biking and sandboarding; every part of the safari was so much fun! Ibrahim also put in lots of effort to make sure we were comfortable, hydrated and had everything we needed. At the end of the safari, we stopped off to have the car thoroughly cleaned, the sand washed off from our clothes and skin and were given a refreshing drink for the journey home. The whole safari was very well organised from start-to-finish and the amount you get for your money we thought was great! Would highly recommend this safari. Thanks again to Ibrahim and everyone else involved!

My friend and I took the morning 4-hour tour and for us it was more than enough. The absolute highlight was the dune bashing and our guide and driver Ibrahim made the experience unforgettable. He was so sweet and kind and even took me for an additional spin. A great photographer on top of everything, he took amazing photos of all participants and assisted us with anything we needed. The rest of the free activities we could totally skip (the short camel ride was fun but the animals looked malnourished, tired, old and unhealthy). A big thanks again to Ibrahim for being such a fun, outgoing and sociable person with amazing driving skills!

Our experience was great. We had a driver named Rashid and he was very friendly he also took a lot of great pictures and had excelente ideas how to arrange the scene with the sunset. The camel ride was a bit short but good. The desert safari was exciting when going in big dunes. The quad bikes park was bit crowded but a fun for everybody. Everyone was friendly and nice. Sandboarding in the dunes was excellent!!! Overall great experience in the dunes and we recommend for a family trip. For sure Rashids photos will stay in our family foto book. Thanks for a great experience!
