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.
What to Expect
After pickup from your Abu Dhabi hotel, sink into a climate-controlled 4WD Land Cruiser and travel to the Al Khatim area of the desert, known for its beautiful dunes.
Upon arrival, set off on an exciting dune bash with a trained driver at the wheel. Enjoy the thrill of sliding down the dunes and stop on a high dune for photos of the sunset.
Next, drive to a Bedouin-inspired camp, where a wide range of activities awaits. Hop out and throw yourself into the fun as you wish. Try sandboarding, take a camel ride, get a henna tattoo inked on your hands, choose to puff on a shisha (Arabic water pipe), and more.
As darkness falls, watch a belly dancing show and savor an Arabian-style barbecue-buffet dinner with unlimited soda, water, coffee, tea and dates. Additional types of drinks are available to purchase. Your trip then ends with a hotel drop-off.

Get to experience real desert

This is the easiest way to set your foot in a real middle eastern desert. You get to touch the real dunes for a very reasonable price. Dune bashing on a Landcruiser is worth the price alone. Plus sandboarding. Of you are couple then you...More
