Itinerary

You will be picked up in a 4WD vehicle from your hotel in Ras Al Khaimah or Umm Al Quwain and taken to the UAE desert . An English-speaking driver-cum-guide will accompany you on this tour.

Continue into the 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.

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). To make the evening even more enchanting, watch the belly dancers perform on the rhythmic Arabic tunes, while relishing a delicious Barbeque buffet dinner.

After a memorable day of desert exploration, you will be dropped back to your hotel in Ras Al Khaimah or Umm Al Quwain.
