The desert around Abu Dhabi is a leisure and cultural attraction of its own—offering everything from dune sports to Bedouin traditions. This tour wraps up the desert must-dos in a neat bow, saving you from arranging transport and any activities on your own. Enjoy a dune drive and then spend the evening at a Bedouin-inspired camp, with camel riding, sandboarding, a belly dance show, and barbecue dinner all-in.
