Full description

The Burj Khalifa is an icon of modern-day Dubai. From observation decks on the world's tallest building, take in breathtaking sights and experience first-hand this modern architectural and engineering marvel. Afterward, enjoy a desert safari and barbecue dinner with a show.

Make your own way to the Burj Khalifa before beginning your vertical ascent to the observation deck in a high-speed elevator, traveling up to 10 meters per second. As the doors open, floor-to-ceiling glass walls provide a breathtaking, unobstructed 360-degree view of the city, desert, and ocean.

Special telescopes offer virtual time-travel images of the city below. You’ll see close-up, real-time views as well as images from the past and the future. After your visit to the Burj Khalifa, it's time for your safari. Get picked you up from your hotel reception and relax in an air-conditioned 4x4 as you head to the desert. The first stop is a traditional camel farm; learn about the different types of camels commonly seen in the desert around Dubai. 

Continue across the desert plains to an encampment, where Arabic coffee and dates await. Get a henna tattoo on your hands or feet, watch a traditional Tanourah folk dance, and feast on a delicious barbecue dinner.

After dinner, smoke a shisha (Arabic water pipe) if you wish, and watch a live belly-dance performance. Relax under a canopy of stars, before returning to the city, where you'll be dropped off at your hotel.

Loved this activity. Excellent food and great entertainment. Be aware that the drive there is a long one. Also, that there are a couple of tourist traps on the way. Make sure you know what is included in the package or run up a bill. We enjoyed the falcon show and riding the camels. The setting is lovely and the food prepared with care.

It was thoroughly enjoyable. The comms at the start could have been a little slicker as we had to wait a little for pickup but for the price paid we got a very enjoyable time at the Burj and the Jeep Safair was brilliant. The Driver was very experienced in dealing with the terrain and the camp facilities were excellent. Food was good, entertainment was great. Free soft-drinks and pints of beer weren't too bad at 38AED if paying via card. All in a very worthwhile and surprisingly cheap bundle when I was discussing it with another family who paid twice as much for just the desert safari alone!!! Would recommend this provider.

Was a great Safari, a nice driver who picked us out at our hotel (just make sure to see what season it depends on the pick up time) and we drove us to a Quad driving park in the desert. After that the real Safari started and we drove crazily over the sand dunes. It was a lot of fun! We stopped in the middle of the desert to take some pics after that we drove to the Get your guide Camp. There you could do sand boarding, camel riding or get a Henna tattoo. You could smoke a shisha and drink some arabian coffee. Then we had a little show while being able to eat from an traditional arabic buffet. It was a lot of fun and the vibe was really really good.
