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.

I has a great experience with Sadik as our tour guide. He was very kind, pleasant, and made us feel very comfortable. We had booked a previous activity, and were running late, but he patiently waited for us, and made sure we did all the activities that were included in the tour. If I ever come back to Dubai, I would definitely book this tour again, and make sure that I request him as my guide. Overall everything was great. I enjoyed myself, and had lots of fun!!! THANK YOU SADIK!!!

Had a great time on this efficient tour! Was only in Dubai for a day, and was traveling with three kids under 8, and it was mid/late August (so pretty warm). Rashid, our guide, picked us up from one place, dropped us off at another, and in between showed us a really nice time wit some very cool activities. He was super patient with us (which is really a requirement for hanging out with us!), did an awesome job balancing safety and excitement while dune bashing, got some great pictures of us messing around with camels and sand boarding, and just overall made sure it was a very positive experience. Highly recommend!

The desert d Driving part was the most exciting thing ever. We had so much to laugh and lots of fun with Saeed (our driver). Camel riding was a little bit short however its worth. Our driver was also our personal guide which was very helpful if some randoms wanna sell sometbi g to us. In this trip there is a.lot included but if you wanna spend some money for lets say pictures they are realy cheap. Didnt expect that. Nice Trip nice driver :)

Saeed was a professional, friendly and knowledgeable driver and tour guide. He communicated with us to let us know he was at the hotel and was courteous and covid safe with masks and hand sanitizer available. During the drive Saeed was very informative about the various Dubai landmarks that we passed and taught us about various aspects of Dubai culture. Cold bottled water was provided in the car throughout the trip. When we stopped at the quad biking location Saeed did not rush us whilst our family of 4 hired some quad bikes (optional and additional charge). Saeed also helped to interpret which made the booking process quick and easy. During the the dune ride Saeed was a very skilled driver and gave us a great, exciting ride. We stopped at a scenic location and Saeed took some excellent photos of our family using our own smartphones. We also had a go at sandboarding at this location which was great fun. We then drove to the desert camp where we had a quick camel ride and then Saeed showed us to our table. The food and show at the desert camp was excellent. Once the show was finished, Saeed was ready and waiting for our trip back to our hotel. When visiting Dubai again we will definitely look forward to seeing Saeed again and would recommend him as a tour guide with no hesitation.
