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

    Your Dubai safari starts with a 4x4 drive exploring the vast expanses of the desert. Dip low in the deep trenches and rise high on the pinnacle of the dunes in this epic ride. This safari gives you two options for the campsite – Al-Awir (Standard) for a buffet barbeque dinner, and the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve(Premium), where you will enjoy a barbeque buffet dinner sourced from a renowned 5-star hotel. Our local operator is one of just four operators who have a desert camp inside the Dubai Desert Conservation reserve.

    Whichever campsite you choose, you’ll get a taste of traditional Arabia with a belly dancing performance, flavoured shisha smoking and a delicious barbeque to accompany. Get beautiful henna designs on your hands or try traditional Arabic dress.

    With a day spent exploring the finer nuances of the desert followed by an ample supply of entertainment; this Dubai tour will be unforgettable!

    Note: If you wish to take the tour on the same day, please book by 10am (Dubai local time).

    Itinerary

    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 or the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, as per option chosen. 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 twist and turn down, leaving behind a trail on the satiny sands of the dune behind you. 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 try Arabian traditional dress. 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 alongside 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.

    • Service was good. The only thing was that I was told to contact them to confirm my booking 48 hours beforehand on the phone number provided. When I called this number on several occassions, there was no answer. I then proceeded by emailing them but still got no response. At this point I was slightly panicking. I then had to contact the emergency number provided. I got through on this number and managed to confirm my booking. Apart from this my overall experience was really good and enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this service to friends and family
