This Dubai desert safari combines an adventurous 4x4 drive across the desert and a relaxing evening of food and entertainment.

Your Dubai safari starts with a 4x4 drive to explore the vast expanse of the desert. Dip low in the deep trenches and rise high on the pinnacle of the dunes. This safari gives you two options for the campsite – Standard, which will take you to Al-Awir for a buffet barbeque dinner, and Premium, with which you will head to the Dubai Desert Conservation reserve to enjoy a barbeque buffet dinner sourced from a renowned 5-star hotel. Our local operator is one of the 4 operators which own a desert camp inside the Dubai Desert Conservation reserve.

Whichever campsite you choose, get a taste of Arabia as you watch the belly dancers perform while you smoke a flavoured shisha and relish a delicious barbeque. Get beautiful henna designs on your hands or try out traditional Arabic dresses.

A day spent exploring the finer nuances of the desert with an ample supply of entertainment; this Dubai tour will be unforgettable!

We have a range of special rates for this tour. Advance bookings (more than 67 days) will receive a discount of 12% while bookings received for summer 2015 dates will benefit from 8% discount. (Please note these savings cannot be combined and are only valid for the premium version of the tour)


You will be picked up in an air-conditioned 4WD vehicle from your hotel in Dubai for this Dubai desert safari. An English-speaking guide will accompany you on this tour.

Drive past the city and head to either Al-Awir with the Standard option or the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve with the Premium option. Once you reach the spot, experience the thrill of a life time as your 4WD vehicle takes you over the seemingly endless dunes to reach a Bedouin campsite.

Like a roller coaster ride, you will go up and down, leaving behind a trail on the satiny sands of the dune. Dip low in the deep trenches and rise high on the pinnacle of the dunes. Drive up to the highest dune and take a break to view the spectacular sunset over the horizon.

At dusk, proceed towards a Bedouin campsite for a barbeque dinner buffet. At the campsite, you can get yourself henna tattoos and dress in Arab costumes. Enjoy these activities while sipping on soft drinks, tea or coffee (as per your choice). You also have an option to take a camel ride and try out different flavours of shisha or hubbly bubbly (a traditional tobacco pipe). Sandboarding may also available for an additional fee, please speak to your guide on arrival at the camp.

To make the evening even more enchanting, watch the belly dancers perform on the rhythmic Arabic tunes, while relishing a delicious three-course barbeque buffet dinner. After a memorable evening of desert exploration, you will be dropped back to the starting point of the tour.
