Full description
Take part in an evening of adventure unlike any other on this 5-hour excursion to the desert of Abu Dhabi.

Leave the city in the afternoon and head toward the desert to discover the true Abu Dhabi. Enjoy an exciting drive over the sand dunes, something akin to desert off-roading. Then you will visit a camel farm and watch the sunset from the dunes.

Continue your journey toward a traditional Arabic camp, where you will have the opportunity to try a host of activities like henna painting and belly dancing. You may also try Shisha, the traditional Arabic smoking pipe, as well as sample the Arabic sweets and coffee significant to Bedouin culture.

You will then be served a BBQ dinner under the starlit sky, with live Arabian entertainment to ensure it's a night to remember. Relax as you learn firsthand what Arabic hospitality means, with Arabic coffee and dates served as they have been for centuries, and continue to be served in Emirati homes today.
