  • Watch a belly dancing show and enjoy a delicious barbeque dinner
  • Experience a magical sunset from the highest dune of UAE desert


Take an adventure filled sunset safari in the immense UAE desert and explore its finer nuances in the faint orangish light of the setting sun. Feel like a sheikh as you watch the entrancing dance of 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.

From an adrenaline pumping 4X4 safari in the dunes to camping in true Bedouin-style and watching an enticing belly dancing performance, your desert safari in UAE will a mix of leisure, entertainment and adventure!


Day 1

You will be picked up in an air-conditioned coach from your hotel in Ras Al Khaimah or Umm Al Quwain and taken on an exciting safari on the golden sand dunes of Arabia. An English-speaking guide will accompany you on this tour.

Continue into the UAE desert and experience the thrill of a life time as take your 4WD vehicle 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.

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). 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. Stay overnight in the Bedouin-style camp. Sleeping bags will be provided to you for your comfort.

Day 2

After a magical night in the silence of the desert, tuck into a hearty breakfast before beginning your return journey to Dubai. You will be dropped back to your hotel in Ras Al Khaimah or Umm Al Quwain.
