  • Feel the adrenaline on a dune-bashing experience in a 4-wheel drive vehicle

Full description

After pickup from your hotel in a 4-wheel drive vehicle, head off with your local guide to the desert, just 45 minutes from Dubai. Upon reaching the Lahbab Desert, be welcomed into an air-conditioned tent with refreshments and time to relax.

If you are feeling more adventurous, you can try some optional quad biking and take a ride over the beautiful red dunes of the Dubai desert.

Next, you will hit the desert for a dune bashing experience in a 4-wheel drive vehicle. Feel your stomach leap as you ride up and down the tall red dunes. Marvel at how the vehicle tackles impossibly steep inclines and the uneven terrain of the sand. 

After dune bashing, you will have a chance to try sandboarding or simply admire the scenery around you. Make sure you take plenty of photos of the scenic desert landscape. 

The next stop is Al Khayma camp, where you’ll be welcomed with traditional Arabic coffee, sweets, and dates. Then, visit a camel farm to learn about how these animals are a key part of traditional Bedouin culture. Enjoy a short camel ride in the open desert, before getting dropped back at your hotel in Dubai.

    Great experience with Ansari! He was the best with taking amazing photos for us to look back on. The camel riding through the desert was unlike anything we’ve ever done. The sand boarding was a blast and the dune bashing was a thrill. Ansari always made sure we have we’re enjoying ourselves and he had a smile on his face the entire time. We really enjoyed everything.

    Niyas was an absolutely fantastic tour guide! He was very accommodating and made the trip brilliant for us! My husband and I were picked up from the hotel, a relaxing drive to the desert and then went for a camel ride, quad biking, dune bashing and sand boarding. Niyas took lots of photos for us, ensured we always had refreshments and that we were enjoying ourselves. Thank you Niyas - the best trip we’ve done! Highly recommend!

    Naveed was an excellent tour guide and photographer. We enjoyed our desert excursion very much and would highly recommend him for future tours. The dune bashing in the desert, the camel ride and the 4x4 ride was incredible. He made sure to explain everything before, instructions were clear and everyone had a great time. Thank you Naveed!
