Meet your guide at your central Dubai hotel and board a comfortable air-conditioned 4x4. Enjoy the views as you leave the city skyscrapers behind and set off on your Dubai desert tour.

Gaze at the Dubai sands and hear all about the desert’s ecology and its history as you travel. After arriving at a traditional camel farm, see the hardy herbivores up close and take a memorable camel ride within the enclosures. Discover more about the different species of camels used in the region, and then return to your 4x4 to continue your desert journey.

Afterward, arrive at a desert campsite nestled amid the Dubai sand dunes and leave your 4x4 again to sample the thrills of sandboarding.

Following a safety briefing, practice riding a sandboard with tips from your guide. Once you’re confident, race your fellow travelers down the drifting dune slopes.

Then settle inside the camp as the sun sinks below the dunes and plains. If you wish, ask one of the henna artists to paint a tattoo on one of your hands or feet.

Watch a colorful tanoura folk dance and visit the onsite shawarma station or savor a succulent barbecue dinner. Dig into typical Arabian dishes such as hummus (chickpea dip) and marinated chicken. (See below for a sample menu.) As a finale, puff on a shisha (Arabic water pipe) if you wish, and watch a brilliant belly-dance performance around the campfire.

Upgrade to an Exclusive Dubai Desert Safari by enjoying the delicious barbecue dinner at your exclusive table with a bottle of sparkling wine and fruit basket.

Soak up the desert setting as the stars light up overhead, and conclude your tour with 4x4 drop-off at your Dubai hotel.

Fantastic Experience
NelMar

If I could give this experience 10 or more stars I would! This was myself and my wife’s fist time in Dubai and this experience was a great way to start our first official day. From start to finish our driver did a fantastic job driving us through the sand dunes. The show, activities, and food at the camp were great. Recommend this tour.

From pickup to drop off an amazing experience- a ‘must do’ when you visit Dubai. The Dune bashing was great fun and the barbecue was delicious. Do take some water with you as you don’t get to the camp until 5.30. Plenty of drink and food and fun when you get to the camp!

My day in the Dubai Desert.

We had the lead driver who did a good job. I wish the San bashing was a little more wild. It was pretty tame. I had signed up for the VIP package and I definitely received it would’ve came to food and the service however I was told that the package would also include the ATV but when I got there they said it did not include it and they wanted to charge me an extra $50 for it. I specifically asked the woman on the phone if the VIP package would include the TV and everything else and she said it did. However the rest of the experience was very good and I enjoyed the falconry exhibit as well as the dancing and fire eating exhibit.
