Ports

  • Port Rashid


Your desert experience begins with pickup from your Dubai hotel, where you greet your guide and board an air-conditioned, SUV destined for the Arabian Desert.

On entering the desert, your guide deflates your tires and takes you on a rollercoaster ride as you crash through the dunes in your off-road vehicle. Then, visit an oasis and travel through a camel farm before stopping to watch a stunning sunset. Continue to a desert safari camp designed to represent a traditional Bedouin village for a camel ride, used as a means of desert transport by Arabs for centuries.   

If you’re a thrill-seeker, try your hand at sandboarding down desert dunes or opt to ride a quad bike at your own expense. Recline on soft Arabian carpets with a shisha pipe as professional artists adorn your hands and feet with henna and, once decorated, pose for photographs wearing traditional Arabian dress—please note, if you wish to purchase photographs, this is at your own expense.

Then, prepare yourself for the visual beauty of a belly dancing show, where professional dances swish and sway during a tanoura dance performance and fire show. Following the show is the feast, which includes shawarma, salads, mezze, Middle Eastern sweets, and more. Soft drinks and water are unlimited, but alcoholic beverages are at your own expense.

Your tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

This experience was awesome! Our guide, Ansar, was a delight! Transportation was smooth, the activities were top notch & the food was amazing. Although we traveled during the pandemic & there were some governmental restrictions, the staff more than made up for the changes with an excellent experience and wonderful customer service.

The best trip we had in Dubai Full of fun, entertainment and great value. Our host and driver was ANSER and he was brilliant all day and took good care of us all Ask for him by name when booking !!! Although the Quad bikes were an extra £32, I would certainly recommend you give them a go as they are unbelievable on the sand dunes. .

Great trip. Food amazing, staff really friendly & helpful. Picked up in style Camel ride could be a little longer, especially as this was the only activity I was well enough to do. A 30 second loop with 2 people on one camel was a little bit of a let down. Everything else fab tho

Desert Safari

Dune bashing was good. Rest was mediocre. Food was not up to par and quantity was minimal. Drinks were tolerable. Coffee and tea were horrible.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2020
Hello Mr. Adler, Thanks for your appreciation of the safari - yes we are among few companies offer full safari at the best desert. You may have experienced that we were only one of the 2 companies doing this safari in the virgin desert. We select this area by driving quite far inside the desert to avoid a head on collision in the desert and here you find the highest dunes of UAE desert so that our guest get maximum experience of safari Disappointed to see to the word "MEDICORE" being used. We expected that you would use “MEDICARE". We cancelled a huge number of guests from the virus infected areas, so you may have noticed that our camp was with few guest allowing you to get the best personalized service. We give ultimately priority to hygiene and cleanliness. Please refer other guest reviews. The desert camp is prone to get desert storms every other day, to maintain the camp in these conditions it’s a “hard nut to break”. Mr. Adler you paid very minimal amount where in Dubai a Kebab sandwich and a coffee cost more than what you paid for all the services. When we talk about the food its not just a kebab – you had cubes of grilled chicken breast, drumstick, grilled fish, 06 variety of salads, also include pasta, curries, rice, steamed assorted veggies, grilled potatoes, desserts and much more ! The list never ends here - Camel ride, Henna, Snacks and Refreshments, Sand boarding , Shesha, Arabic Costume photo, Dune bashing, sunset etc all included in this package.. What ever we mentioned are the facts which is open to the world and we stand on our statement. We offer traditional drink made of Herbs and saffron - the Arabic coffee with farm fresh dates, instant coffee, tea bags, boiled mineral water, milk, sugar are kept for your self service We do not understand how it is terrible ? I presume that you may have asked the service staffs on your table for the tea which the mixing may not been of your choice. Please accept our sincere apologies if we have not met your expectation.

A must do evening in Dubai
Judith_P
, Mar 2020
Absolutely the best tour you could ever do. The ride through the desert dunes was thrilling and fun. Our driver was always concerned about our safety. The desert camp was spotless and very well done. Fun souvenirs reasonably priced. We had the best 10 course meal that was so delicious. Food just kept coming. Service was exceptional. The show was superb. In fact, amazing. Best Belly Dancer I have ever seen. The other performers were great also. Best tour for your night out in Dubai. The only draw back was the camel ride was a little circle around then a picture for you to buy, but that's OK. Thank you for a memorable night.

Desert Safari is a must
Marcia

For the price paid, this was quite good. Be prepared that the ride to the desert is a bit long since others are being picked up and you may end up with the folks that got picked up in the same van. You will he encouraged to upgrade to VIP which means you get served and sit at regular tables instead of sitting in cushions on the ground. To be VIP, I would suggest that they use proper plates for serving the meal in instead of styrofoam plates and get rid of the plastic flowers.
