Highlights
  • Visit an area of red dunes and enjoy various desert activities with ease
  • Choose a morning or afternoon sand board, dune bash, and camel ride experience
  • Upgrade to add a BBQ-buffet dinner and live shows at a desert camp
What to expect
  • Choose from 4-hour program that includes dune bashing, sandboarding and camel ride or the full 7-hour program with the addition of a BBQ dinner and enjoy many other activities at a VIP Bedouin-style camp'. Start your experience with pickup in a safari-style 4WD vehicle from your central Dubai hotel and zoom into the remote Lahbab desert that lies outside the city. During the drive, your guide answers any questions and shares information about the region. Head off road into bright red dunes and have your camera ready to capture what looks like giant beanbags of sand. During a break to gather the convoy, make use of optional quad bikes on-site. Then hold tight as you cruise toward the highest slopes. Feel the adrenaline race as your 4x4 plows up the dunes before sliding and slipping back down the slopes, churning up billowing clouds of sand in the process.  Reach a high desert dune for a photo stop and admire 360-degree views of the desert landscape as the sun slowly sets (afternoon tour). Take a camel ride and surf the dunes on a sandboard before you continue on to a Bedouin-style camp hidden in the middle of the desert (if upgrade selected). The 4-hour tour ends here and you are returned to your Dubai hotel. For those who have chosen a 7-hour tour, proceed to a torchlit camp, settle inside a cushion-strewn tent, and savor some fresh Arabian coffee and dates. Your safari guide will brief you about the various activities available: smoke a shisha (water pipe), decorate your hands with henna designs, and take pictures in traditional Arabic clothes. As dusk falls, dig into a scrumptious barbecue dinner of dishes such as kebabs, hummus, and salads accompanied by sodas and mineral water, and additional drinks (own expense) from the bar. While you eat, enjoy a colorful belly dancing show and tanoura performance, where fast-spinning dancers whirl across the stage. If you wish, click snaps with Arabian falcons at the camp. Finally, return to Dubai by 4x4, where your experience concludes with a hotel drop-off.

My experience was absolutely amazing. I had the best time thanks to my tour guide, Ibrahim. He did everything imaginable to insure I have the best time. He took high quality pictures, made I had water at all times. I went on my own so was really nice to feel safe on the tour. Highly recommend and ask for Ibrahim!

Brilliant tour! Our guide and driver Ibraheem was amazing, gave us lots of information about the sights on our way to the desert. I was a little nervous for the camel ride but he reassured me and took a video of my friend and I riding the camel.
The dune bashing was so much fun!! We stopped for some sand boarding and then a ‘photo opportunity’…. It was more like a photo shoot! Ibraheem took hilarious photos of us and had as laughing the whole time!
Would absolutely recommend. Thanks Ibraheem
