Full description

The experience begins with pickup from your hotel in Dubai and heads out to the Lehbab Desert where adventure awaits. Arrive at the dune buggy center and get kitted out with all the necessary safety gear while listening to the instructions from your safari captain. Drive your 1000cc Polaris buggy out onto the sand dunes and enjoy an hour of thrill-seeking. Speed through the desert landscape and glide across peculiar sand formations, feeling the buzz of adrenaline rush through your body from start to finish.

Once you’ve had some fun on the buggies, it’s time for the next activity of the day. Grab a sandboard and hit the slopes, sliding and slipping your way across the dunes. This is the final activity for guests who opt for the 4-hour experience. After sandboarding, the experience continues with more fun-filled activities at the nearby Al Khayma Desert Camp. Here you can enjoy a camel ride across the sandy landscapes, get a traditional henna tattoo, or watch an incredible falcon show.

Once you’ve worked up a bit of an appetite, dine on a tasty BBQ dinner and relax as you partake in the traditional Dubai pastime of shisha smoking. At the end of an unforgettable day, sit back and relax on the return journey to your city hotel.

This was the highlight of our Dubai trip!!! It is so well worth it. Dune buggies were a lot of fun as well as other activities. The entertainment show is great and the food is awesome. Our tour guide William was amazing and made the whole experience much more fun. We will definitely do this again!

Great tour!! We recommend to do the buggy ride because it is much faster than the quads and also easier to ride. It’s a small group tour, food and organisation is really good. We also liked the show and side activities. Tour guide Erixson did a great job entertaining us during the ride and told a lot of fun facts on local culture of Dubai.

Great trip to the desert. Our guide/driver - Wahab - was fun, chatty and knowledgeable. First we enjoyed our dune buggy experience. We were taken for an hours ride in our dune buggy, with a guide, who was happy to take stunning pictures for us. We were then treated to a sunset which was incredible. From there, we again were taken by Wahab to our next stop, a local camp where we did camel riding, watched local Dubai entertainment whist enjoying a delicious buffet/grill of local foods. We also had the opportunity to have a henna tattoo, before an enjoyable ride back to our hotel. An amazing & fun day which we will not forget
