Full description

Embark on an unforgettable day-to-evening journey across the Dubai Desert. Experience the thrill of driving through red sand dunes and feel the hospitality of a Bedouin desert camp, where you can partake in interactive cultural activities and feast on a delicious BBQ buffet. Drive out of the bustling city and into the peaceful desert aboard a 4x4 Land Cruiser. When you arrive, enjoy a relaxing rest stop and go on an optional quad bike ride while other convoys catch up.  Next, sit back and strap in for a dune bashing ride across the stunning red dunes of the Lehbab Desert. For an extra kick of adrenaline, get the chance to try out sandboarding. 

Enhance your dune adventure with an optional quad bike ride. Select this activity as an add-on at checkout and choose a bike for yourself or to share with one of your travel partners.  Continue to the Al Khayma Camp and be welcomed with Arabic coffee, sweets, and dates. Say hello to the camp’s resident camels and, if you’d like, go on a 10-minute camel ride across the sand. During your time at the camp, you can smoke Shisha, do Henna painting, and meet the resident falcon expert and his loyal bird.  The buffet barbecue begins at sunset. While you eat, be entertained by traditional dances performed in the center stage. Finish your dinner on a high note with a tasting of various local desserts. As a final treat, the camp will go dark, giving you the opportunity to take in the peaceful ambiance of a desert night before being returned to your accommodation in Dubai.

R A S H I D the one and only! Rashid was a perfect guide during the safari tour. He is a polite, helpful and a confident driver who was asking all the time how we feel during the drifting session. God bless you sir! As for the tour itself, it was worth it every second. The food, the drifting, the show, the camel ride, were all perfect. A life time experience you do not want to miss!!!

Superb activity I recommend. Very varied excursion with several activities, small negative point for the quad which is not a ride, but a ride in a defined area. Driver at the top, fresh water at will, very good and plentiful meal in the camp, very good activity in the camp, very short camel ride.
