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. You can enjoy a camel ride in this seemingly endless desert.

After the desert safari you will be taken to a Bedouin campsite. Get a taste of Arabia as you watch the belly dancers while smoking a flavoured shisha and relishing 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!

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

Continue into the desert and experience the thrill of a life time your 4WD vehicle takes you over the seemingly endless dunes. 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 the Bedouin campsite located in the heart of the desert. 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 bar-be-que buffet dinner.

After a memorable evening of desert exploration, you will be dropped back to the starting point of the tour.
