About
Desert Safari with BBQ Dinner with us is the authentic way to experience the natural beauty in the UAE. Your driver will collect you from your hotel or residence and drive out of the busy city towards the stunning desert. After a short stop to deflate the tyres the thrilling dune drive will begin. This is amazing and your driver will show you how the vehicles can perform across the dunes. You will enjoy photo stops, finding the camel farm and making the most of the unlimited sandboarding. As you catch your breath from this exhilarating afternoon, we will transfer over to the traditional Beduin style campsite for an evening of divine food and exceptional Arabic entertainment. Camel riding, sweet and savoury starters, delicious BBQ dinner, belly dancing, tanoura show and more. The evening will come to a close after you have finished eating your dinner and your driver will return you to your hotel or residence with happy memories in the UAE desert.

Prasanth was an absolutely incredible tour guide - so informative and really looked after us. The desert safari is one of the best experiences in Dubai and would highly recommend booking with destination insight. Really reasonable price for the activities included - the camp at the end was so authentic and all the staff are awesome.

This is truly a not to be missed experience to be remembered forever. As a UAE resident I had been to the desert many times and it’s a fun activity.

But destination insight make the whole experience magical. Everyone involved was so friendly and we all felt so looked after. Literally bending over backwards to accommodate a party with small kids and adults who where not really the thrill seeking type.

Also noted was their attention to safety, which was of top priority to us.

Thank you so much. X

Loved the tour guide Adril. Dune bashing was good fun if a bit scary too!

Just be prepared to spend extra..
We did the four seater quad bike in the dunes was an extra 630 dur.
Camel ride was a waste of time went about 10 feet and guy was after a tip.
They take photos these are 50 dur each.

We had a fab day and it was experience but we did spend far more than expected!

We were a group of 5 adults for overnight in Liwa desert after a great BBQ dinner in a splendid remote area with amazing dunes. The team led by Hakeem provided a great service from the beginning till the end. Highly recommended.

I had used this company 2 years ago and they missed some stuff off our experinace then. They promised to make up for it next time we are in Dubai. Well I went back to Dubai with my family in October and contacted Destination Insight for a bbq safari. I wasnt asking for the bits missed last time but was looking to book a new desert safari because overall we did enjoy it last time. I contacted them via whatsapp and despite them reading my message they did not bother to respond - i guess they were too afraid I might ask them to honour their promise from last time (which is recorded on thier response to me on trip advisor).
I wasnt even looking for them to honour that promise, more book a new safari and ensure they do the things thats in their itineray and they missed last time
Poor service in my view and I wont be contacting them again when I next go Dubai

Had an amazing, hassle-free experience with a beautiful set up for our family and friends in the desert. The tents were beautiful, spacious and very comfortable in a great location. The hosting team cooked up a great bbq feast on a lovely table set up, we were well catered for and we all had super fun under the stars with our campfire.

We had such a great experience out in the desert last night with the guys from Destination in Sight. Mary has a great eye for detail and really knows how to build a camp that in these times sticks to covid regulations but can still feel cosy. We had fun with an archery competition, enjoyed the abundant bbq and sat around the fire catching up and chatting......fabulous!
