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 4-wheel drive vehicle. When you arrive, enjoy a relaxing rest stop and go on an optional quad bike ride.  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. 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 ambience of a desert night before being returned to your accommodation in Dubai.

    Excellent overall service. Very engaging activities throughout the entire experience. Siddik made sure we were comfortable and safe at all times and went above and beyond with his friendliness and helpfulness. He was very informative and explained the whole process well. The camp site resembles an oasis in the desert and there were different stations of available activities. It felt like an authentic Arabian night from the food to the camel ride. We got to experience various aspects of the culture such as henna, tea, barbecued food, etc. The dune bashing was especially our favorite part. 10/10, highly recommend. Thanks again to Siddik for the amazing experience and service!

    Amazing Experience! We were guided by Rashid who has been absolutely faultless. 5 Stars isn’t enough for the service Rashid has provided. Constantly ensured we were okay throughout consider the temperature was 40+ degrees providing us with regular water stops throughout as well as many photo spots which will be priceless memories we will take away. The tour is excellent and is a must for anyone who visits Dubai.

    The experience was amazing, we went on a quad riding, camel ride, sandboarding, they gave us some treats, plenty of water, and the dune bashing was also amazing. Our guide Lala was the best one and he was so kind, he took plenty of photos of us and then he sent it to us. The final spot was also incredible, with the sunset first and then with a dinner plenty of yummy food (so many vegan options also). Finally there was a performance while smoking shisha and having dessert. I recommend it so much!
