Full description

Escape the hustle and bustle of Dubai and experience the calm of the surrounding desert to satisfy your sense of adventure. Choose from a shared or private option, and enjoy legendary Arabian hospitality.

Start your adventure with a convenient pickup at your hotel and drive out to the wilderness by 4WD. Journey to the remote desert area of Lehbab, approximately 50 kilometers from Dubai city center.

Marvel at the silky red sand and towering dunes. Hop on a camel to get a short ride or perhaps choose the optional quad bike experience (age-restricted). Head into the desert onboard your 4WD Land Cruiser as the vehicle slips and slides like a roller-coaster across the dunes. Try your hand at sandboarding, or just relax and take photos of the spectacular views of the sunset, before being dropped off back at your hotel.

A brilliant activity. We booked the shared group experience for 4 of us - me, my husband and our 2 children aged 18 and 19. Our driver picked up another couple from a nearby hotel so there were 6 in our group in total. (I couldn’t tell how big the group was going to be from the pre-booking information). The driver was really interesting and we learned a lot about life in Dubai on the way out to the desert. First up was quad bikes - about 30 mins - amazing! Then a very short camel ride - perfect length for us. Then the driver let his tires down a bit and drove fast over the same dunes to a place for sand boarding. All in all a brilliant morning. Top tip - make sure you have sun glasses - sand and contact lenses don’t work well together!

One of the best experiences in Dubai. We got picked up by Nabeel, the safari guide around 1000 am. In my opinion, one of the better guide experiences I have had. He was very caring, offered us drinks on our way to the desert, explained each activity beforehand, and helped us in taking pictures.

Today was fantastic, Ahmed was a great host. I can’t really put into words how thrilling the dune bashing was in particular, just the right amount of expertise that turned a first time sand experience for me into one of the most memorable things I’d remember about Dubai. A must try****
