Full description

Have a thrilling and fun experience in the remote desert area known as Lahbab. Choose between a 4-hour tour option which includes dune bashing, sand-boarding, and a camel ride, or the 7-hour tour option which adds on a BBQ dinner, and all desert camp activities. Your safari guide will pick you up from your hotel in a 4WD vehicle. Your tour starts with a 50-minute drive into the desert. Enjoy stunning views of Dubai from the car window. The guide will answer any of your questions while you learn more about Dubai’s history. Your first stop will be at the desert rest area. Take a 25-minute break as the convoy catches up. While you wait, your safari guide will air down the tires of the vehicle to ensure better driving conditions. You can enjoy an optional quad bike experience if you wish on site. Then, take an adventurous 30-45 minute dune drive across the desert. Feel your adrenaline rush as you slide across from one dune to another in a 4x4 vehicle. The drive will take you further into the desert, up to a high desert dune for a photo stop.

From here, admire beautiful 360-degree views of the desert landscape as the sun slowly sets. Use this photo stop to try sandboarding (sand-surfing), before heading to the desert camp.

The 4-hour tour program ends here, and you will be returned to your hotel. If you've chosen the 7-hour option, your tour will continue with a visit to the hidden desert camp. Arrive at camp and be greeted with Qahwa (Arabic coffee), dates, and Lugamat (a traditional sweet).

Your safari guide will brief you about the various activities available at the camp. Hop on a camel for a short ride, try a shisha pipe, decorate your hands with Henna tattoos, or take pictures in traditional Arabic clothes. As the night settles in, enjoy a scrumptious BBQ dinner of kebabs, hummus, and salads accompanied by sodas, water, and additional drinks from the bar. Enjoy a colorful belly dancing show and Tanura performance, where fast-spinning dancers whirl across the stage. Don’t forget to snap some photos with the Arabian falcons that are present at the camp. Finally, after the last show, return to your hotel in Dubai.

Our safari guide is BISHI am usually one to leave reviews however, this activity package was absolutely amazing! I was very pleased by our driver Bishi as well because of his excellent service and consideration of other group members. I was also shocked at how many activities we were able to complete is our limited time, but because of the precise planning, it ended up being perfect! Bishi and the company truly made our desert experience in Dubai unforgettable

Thank you BISHI for the day This was an AMAZING tour! First the driver communicated with us via WhatsApp and was promo and on time. Our first stop was the dune buggies and it was awesome. I was the passenger but my husband handled the hills like a champ. I recommend bringing goggles because the sand is wicked. Our guide was awesome he took videos while we drove. Next was riding through the hills in the air conditioned truck, which was wild and fun. This is where we also went sand boarding,! the ride down was fun but the walk back up was definitely a workout. Lastly was the camel and bbq site. The camel ride was shorter than I expected but it was a great experience and you can do it more than once. The dinner and show was also good and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. This tour is definitely a must when you visit Dubai

Really enjoy the dunes drive with Faizal’s driving skill on the desert while playing Yaila Hibibi to entertain us! Was a enjoyable trip. His politeness second to none. Strongly recommend him and the company.
