Full description

Leave the crowds of Dubai behind on this safari tour into the desert. Drive in a 4x4 Jeep vehicle over towering sand dunes, deep into the heart of the desert. As the sun sets over the soft sands, watch for lantern light in the distance, signaling a traditional welcome at the desert camp. Once at the camp, enjoy the many traditions of local hospitality, including Arabic snacks and warm beverages. Settle in with Bedouin-style seating and enjoy an aromatic Shisha water pipe before heading off to visit a camel farm.

You'll have the chance to embark on a camel ride, view local sand art, and admire the traditional Arabic attire and work of henna designers. Next, feast on a traditional BBQ dinner of grilled meats, fresh salads, and delicious local sweets, while watching belly dancing and listening to classical Arabic music.

Following dinner there will be a Tanoura show; watch this amazing whirling dervish dance, a folk tradition of the Middle East.

Before heading back to Dubai, take a free 15-minute tour of the camp in Quad/ATV/Buggy to round out your desert safari adventure.

In the top of my best adventures: they pick you up on time at your hotel, excellent handling in the dunes, camel ride, motorcycle, dinner, dances, BUT above all they are aware that you are enjoying it and there is the difference. Super recommended! They know the tour at 200%

This tour was really great, we had a lot of fun, watching the sunset with dromedaries, driving a quad with great guides who took great pictures. A wonderful oriental dance evening with traditional food, with something for everyone. The guide spoke English, but you can understand him without the language. There was a fire show, dance, belly dance and of course their own chic dervish. It is worth an experience. The pick-up was on time in desert-suitable cars

We can only recommend the safari to everyone! For this price you get so much on offer and the various guides always ask you whether you should take pictures with your own hand, so that you don’t have to spend unnecessary money on pictures! Super nice and entertaining safari guide!
