Travel across the desert from Dubai on a 4x4 safari. Feel a rush of adrenaline as you speed down the dunes on a sandboard, take a ride on a camel, and get a henna tattoo. Complete your experience with a delicious barbecue dinner and tanoura show.
What to Expect
Enjoy a drive by air-conditioned 4x4 vehicle into the desert that surrounds the city of Dubai. Admire views of the barren yet enchanting landscape en route, and listen to your guide’s tales about the region and its fascinating geology.
Your first stop in the desert is a traditional camel farm, where you’ll see herds of the magnificent hump-backed herbivores. Enjoy a camel ride around the enclosures and learn about the different types of camels that are commonly seen in the desert around Dubai.
Continue across the desert plains to a campsite where you can try your hand at sandboarding, which is a popular local pastime. Learn the art of surfing on sand and race your friends and fellow travelers down the sand dunes in an adrenaline-filled experience.
Relax and take a seat outside to watch the sun set over the craggy canyons and sun-baked plains. Get a henna tattoo design on your hands or feet, watch a traditional tanoura dance show, and feast on a delicious barbecue dinner.
After dinner, you can smoke a shisha (Arabic water pipe) if you wish, and watch a live belly-dance performance around the campfire. Relax under a canopy of twinkling stars before heading back to your Dubai hotel.
