Full description

Embark on a lively desert safari from Dubai, with 4x4 dune bashing, sandboarding, and a camel ride in the Lahbab Desert, with round-trip transportation included. For even more adventure, add on an exciting quad bike ride or immersive desert camp experience with BBQ feast and entertainment.

Buckle up and set off on a dune bashing adventure as your experienced driver races the 4x4 vehicle across the dunes. Next, meet your sandboarding instructor for a crash course in gliding down the sandy slopes. Not enough thrills? Add an optional quad bike ride to your experience.

Immerse yourself in the Bedouin way of life and hop on a camel for a slower-paced ride across the landscape, taking the time to soak in the 360-degree views of the breathtaking Arabian Desert.

Enjoy a relaxing journey back to the city following 4 hours of excitement. If you opted for a 7-hour tour, you will continue to the al Khayma desert camp for a BBQ dinner and entertainment program, taking your experience from day to night.

After a warm welcome of traditional Arabic coffee and sweets, take another camel ride to watch the stunning sunset before enjoying a buffet-style dinner of authentic dishes and desserts.

Sit around a central stage to watch traditional live entertainment and dancing. During your time at the camp, you can try shisha, henna painting, and meet the resident falcon. Before returning to Dubai, you'll have some time to take in the peaceful beauty of the desert at night.

Today was a wonderful day, we had a glitch with the tour guide allocated to us initially but that was immediately rectified by the Quality guest relations team. We were allocated the best guide (Mr Sandy/ Sandeep) and the manager Mr Rav saw to that we had the best of time. We were escorted and explained every part of the itinerary in the car and also during the tour. The quality and the arrangements of the meet up tent and the quad booking was good. The dune bashing was another thrilling and nice experience. The best time was at the desert camp, the quality and freshness of food, the arrangement and the talent of the live shows was excellent which exceeded my expectations. We ended the day with loads of memories, nice souvenirs and a VIP experience. Thank you to the team!

Nasser our driver was amazing and was very friendly and helpful. The food was really good am we had a very good time. The only thing I would change is that the sand board was really small, just a couple of seconds and also the camel ride was short. Besides that really recommended

This day was so good and our driver, Inram, was so nice. I went by myself but Inram ensured I was involved and got all pictures and videos even ones I didn't realise I needed. The activities was so much fun and definitly would recommend anyone to go out to the desert and experience it.
