Take a 4-wheel drive adventure in the Ras Al Khaimah desert on this half-day tour. Opt to take a camel ride, get a henna tattoo, watch traditional tannora and belly dance performances, and cap it all off with a barbecue buffet under the night sky. Round-trip transportation from Dubai hotels included.
  • Half-day 4WD desert safari from Ras Al-Khaimah
  • Visit a local camel farm
  • Optional camel ride at the encampment
  • Enjoy traditional henna tattooing
  • Barbecue dinner in a tent under the stars
  • Round-trip hotel transportation
Be ready for convenient late-afternoon pickup at your hotel in Ras Al-Khaimah. Climb into an off-road vehicle with your guide and group, then relax in air-conditioned comfort and leave the desert driving to the experts. 

Watch the city scenery turn into desert dunes, stopping first at a camel farm to observe the animals and learn about the different types that populate the area. 

Arrive at a campsite deep in the desert, where you will sip some traditional Arabic coffee and eat some dates as a welcome refreshment. If you so choose, ride a camel for a tour of the encampment or get a henna tattoo on your feet or hands. Watch a traditional tannorah folk dance, smoke shisha, and indulge in barbecue dinner under the stars followed by a belly dance performance. 

Return to your hotel the way you came for drop-off.

The desert sand, the dunes that we sadly bashed a few times, the sunset and the entertainment was thoroughly enjoyable. Nature at its best pulled out all the stops for us! Our 4wd driver and guide Hidayaat, did promise a fun safari which he did deliver. This was my second time although the last time was more than 10 years ago. I had forgotten what it was like. I could make it a hat trick just being out on the sands and the drive! Fab afternoon !

Very good tour started at pick up 1500 finished at 2000 could have been an hour shorter as there was a lot of time hanging around the camp not doing much. Camp was nice they have one camel you can walk a few paces on get another person to take pictures for you or you can buy from them at 75d each.

Everyone said this was a trip I must do and they were all correct. It is great fun if a little scary but we had a very good driver and always felt safe. The evening entertainment and food were excellent. A great afternoon and evening and the chance to get some fantastic photos.

Absolutely fantastic afternoon/evening. We were picked up from the hotel on time and were escorted by the driver who also picked up some more people from another hotel to where we were going. We were met by lots of other 4X4's and formed a type of caravan so we were not alone. The afternoon consisted of going over the dunes int he 4X4's which was tremendous fun and watching the sunset before we headed off the to dinner. The camp was lovely and the entertainment was really good. Only downside was the food wasn't anything to write home about. There were lots of staff who were trying to sell you alcohol, sand bottled, shisha etc but no-one was pushy and we were able to politely say no.They stopped asking once you did. All in all great value for money and if I ever went to RAK again I would definitely try and book this tour. This made our holiday.

Tres bien organisé,très bon buffet, 3 beaux spectacles pendant le repas Mais,trop touristique a mon gout avec les boutiques ; de plus possibilité de faire du buggy ou quad : mais les tarifs sont chères. Enfin,le chauffeur qu'on a eu n'était vraiment pas sympa, il nous a bien fait ressentir qu'il faisait juste son travail. Cest dommage.
