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 4-wheel drive vehicle. When you arrive, enjoy a relaxing rest stop and go on an optional quad bike ride.  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. Continue to the Al Marmoom Oasis 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 a local Bedouin show. 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 ambience of a desert night before being returned to your accommodation in Dubai.

    this was one of the best touring experiences i have had. You get to enjoy a lot of things within a day. Starting by picking up from your hotel, you get greeted with a smiling face. we got to do a ton of activities not just limiting to camel rides, ATV bikes and dinner dance show. I especially loved the sand cruising and sandboarding experience as it was very thrilling. Our tour guide Abid Wahid was very welcoming and was offering to always help and explain everything we could enjoy within the day. i highly reccomend you try this if you have a day at Dubai. Defenitely a lifetime experience to treasure.

    This was an excellent experience. They really take care of you and provide lots of water and drinks. The food at the camp was really good too and I think the chefs are great. We also need to recognise the ladies at the camp who cook and do henna and greet guests were very polite and friendly. making our experience even nicer. I would recommend but I'd also advise trying to stay cool as possible. The desert gets very hot. The camels are lovely and very docile. Also the bird is really nice.
