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.

The Tour was so good, the pick up from the Hotel was perfect in Time and we got informed via SMS for the time. Our Guide, Rashid made a great Job! He informed us about everything we want to know and also took care for our Bags. In the Desert he took great Fotos from us and cared about us if we got too much in the Heat. Thanks to Him! He drived great and had cooled water in the Car which was great. The Drop off was also great and we came back to the Hotel in the right time. I think without a good guide the Tour does not make fun. Thanks to the Organisation that we got such an Great Guide.

Bishi was our guide and he made our day. We were picked up and was informed what will happen that day. We started with a dune bashing and moved on with Sandboarding. After that we reached a camp where you can do camel ride, view falcons and they are performing amazing shows like the "fire show". An Arabic buffet is also included which was very delicious. In a nutshell: even if you have just one day in Dubai spend it for doing this fabulous tour! And again thank you Bishi for this wonderful day!!!
