Full description

Explore the magnificent Lahbab Desert on a thrilling guided tour, including quad biking, sandboarding, a camel ride, shisha smoking, a Khaliji dance show, and more. Start the tour with a pickup by your guide in an air-conditioned vehicle and set off on your desert adventure, discovering the beauty of Bedouin culture.

Upon arrival in the desert, enjoy a short break during which you can use the toilet before starting your quad bike adventure. Listen to your guide as they give you safety instructions on quad biking including how to wear the helmet.

Once geared up, hop on the quad bike, and kick-start your 1-hour bike ride. Feel the thrill and adrenaline rush as you race through the sand surmounting the red dunes. Follow the instructions of your leader to conquer the red dunes with this biking experience.

As you get to the peak of the dunes with the bike ride, take a break to relax and breathe in the beauty of the desert terrains. Later, try your hand at sandboarding.

Strap the board onto your shoes and slide down the dunes. Don't be scared to fall off your board, it is just like landing in a sea of silk. While enjoying the sport, click photos of your fun-filled adventure and the serene desert.

Next, ride back to the starting point and proceed to the ravishing Al Khayma desert camp. At the camp, be welcomed with the traditional Arabian coffee, sweets, and dates. Hereafter, meet your friendly camel and enjoy a ride in the desert, admiring the beauty of the dunes.

Return to the camp to take part in traditional activities like posing with the falcon, Henna tattoos and Shisha smoking. Finally, as the entertainers take the stage, enjoy a Tanoura show and Khaliji dance performance while savoring a delicious BBQ meal.

As the red dunes desert adventure comes to an end, be taken back to your hotel or preferred location in Dubai.

One of the best experiences of my life. 5 star all the way and absolutely fantasticly organized from beginning to end. And Mujee our driver and guide was incredibly patient, supportive and even went so far as to tipping the henna tatoo lady as one of the ladies in our group did not have cash on her. Value of money. A suggestion, is we only went on the sandboard once, as there was 1 board to use between all of us and it took a few mins to climb back up on the dune. To good to do in such heat and takes time. When a bike could be used to bring us back up, to go again

AD Ali was amazing! AD was our fantastic tour guide for dessert safari, extremely attentive and kind! He has professional photography skills, and took amazing pictures, which definitely created forever memories! I was afraid to do quad biking alone, hence he offered to drive me and gave adrenaline feeling, which made my dessert safari experience most memorable. He made sure all groups members are comfortable and happy! Went out of his way to help us ! AD is simply the best guide and made my day! Oh and he has very good sense of humour! I give him 10/10 and also we made new friends from USA

Muhammad Khalil was a great tour guide. I would 100% recommend this trip, my partner and I had a great day out. The quad bikes went for longer than expected, the camel ride was great fun and the dinner was beautiful… the show at the end is the perfect end to your day in the desert. Thank you!
