Full description
After a prompt pick up from Dubai port in an air-conditioned vehicle, transfer to the Lehbab Desert. Begin your tour of this stunning landscape with a quad bike ride after a quick safety briefing. Continue the ride across the red dunes for the next 60 minutes. For an extra adventure, try your hand at sandboarding as you stand on a wooden board and glide down the dunes. Next, head over to a typical desert camp, and familiarise yourself with an array of Bedouin specialties. Experience various activities such as henna tattooing, shisha pipe smoking, and dressing up in traditional Arabian attire. Take a short camel ride around the camp premises. When you return back to the camp, enjoy a delicious barbecue dinner buffet accompanied by a live Tanoura dance and Khaleeji dance show.

    ATV Driving is fun but not as easy as it looks. I found it hard to stay on the road and I actually derailed a few times because I went down the hill. Make sure you press a lot of gas when driving- that is the only way you will drive smoothly. If you ultimately fail at driving the ATV to the destination (sand boarding) like me, then you will ride in a car that will bring you to sand boarding and back to the starting point as well. The car ride was very fun! As for the camel ride, it was pretty short- I was in the front so it wasn’t that bumpy- I heard it was bumpy in the back. It says in the voucher we bought that we can feed the camels but that wasn’t available- the camels were wearing masks. Also the bbq buffet was yummy and there’s a lot you can experience at the camp like henna tattoo, buying souvenirs, taking pics with a falcon, trying Arabic tea/coffee, and there’s like 3 performances. I wish there was belly dancing but there wasn’t :( but overall it was still a great experience!

    One of the best tours I’ve done. Akbar was on time outside (even stopped to let us get food because we were hungry) service was outstanding! From Akbar taking our pictures and all the guys at the camp making sure we had enough water and food. Couldn’t recommend these enough! What an experience Thank you and thank you Akbar

    Transportation was great, they pick us up at the Hotel on time. We had a wonderful experience during the excursions. We also had great tour guides (Sandy & Shamju) we enjoyed the ATV riding, Camel ride was nice and the show & BBQ was amazing. I will definitely do this again.
