Full description
Depart Dubai and drive to the surrounding desert for an extreme adventure with your family or friends. Leave in the afternoon to cross the red sands and dunes of “Lahbab” before the sun sets. Travel by 4WD Land Cruiser and stop at the highest dune to watch the sunset over the horizon. Take a superb photo of the Bedouins as they cross the desert with their camel trains. Continue to a desert camp to benefit from a host of available activities. Cross the sands on camel back and experience the "ships of the desert" first-hand, or try your hand at sand boarding down the dune for the ultimate adrenaline rush. Get a (removable) henna tattoo on your hands or feet. Watch traditional Arabic entertainment, such as a belly dance show and the whirling dancers of a tanoura show. Smoke a shisha water pipe (“hooka”) before you are served a barbecue buffet dinner of authentic Arabic cuisine in the middle of the desert. Return to your waiting vehicle for the journey back to Dubai.

This was just fun to do. Definitely going again next week. The red dune bashing was everything for me. I booked this with my family and the all had a wow time. Mujeeb the driver was an expert wheel man. His understanding and command of the vehicle made us feel safe. Plus he's a very welcoming person
