  • Dune and wildlife drive, camel ride, sandboarding, and refreshments
  • Group limited to six for a more informative and personal experience
What to Expect
Greet your guide at your central Dubai hotel in the early morning and ride to the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve by climate-controlled 4WD vehicle. En route, learn about the desert and reserve from your guide. Hear about Bedouin culture as well as the desert’s history and wildlife, and discover how the conservation project works to protect its nature and biodiversity. After entering the reserve, enjoy an exciting dune bash before a gentle drive to look for flora and wildlife. Keep watch for plants and animal species such as Arabian oryx, gazelle, rodents, and reptiles. Bring your camera for the many photo ops. Then, enjoy a short camel ride before you let fly on a sandboarding session. Get instructions and zoom down the dunes with a provided board, as if you’re racing on ski slopes. Finally, savor refreshments at a Bedouin-style campsite before your tour concludes at your Dubai hotel.
