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.

    This was amazing! I definitely recommend this if you are a first timer in Dubai! The quad bike was fun. The dune bashing was as well. However, I would not recommend it if you get motion sickness easily. The camp at night with the BBQ dinner was great and was great quality. Everything wouldn’t have been great if it was not for our amazing tour guide Mansoor. This man deserves amazing recognition for his hard work and dedication for his job. I really do appreciate everything you do for us! Definitely ask for him if you can! I definitely recommend this experience!
