All Hotels around Ras Al Khaimah
Be ready for convenient late-afternoon pickup at your hotel in Ras Al-Khaimah. Climb into an off-road vehicle with your guide and group, then relax in air-conditioned comfort and leave the desert driving to the experts. 

Watch the city scenery turn into desert dunes, stopping first at a camel farm to observe the animals and learn about the different types that populate the area. 

Arrive at a campsite deep in the desert, where you will sip some traditional Arabic coffee and eat some dates as a welcome refreshment. If you so choose, ride a camel for a tour of the encampment or get a henna tattoo on your feet or hands. Watch a traditional tannorah folk dance, smoke shisha, and indulge in barbecue dinner under the stars followed by a belly dance performance.

Great afternoon of fun!
, Apr 2022
Lovely afternoon. Dune safari was excellent fun, with a great driver - Mohammed, who look after us. The bbq and show at the camp were well organised and entertaining. A short camel ride was included as well as soft drinks and sand boarding. Picked up from RAK at 3pm and back shortly after 9pm.
Great afternoon and evening
, Jan 2022
Great afternoon and evening, 4x4 dune drive was excellent, the fire and dancing show was very good, as was the short camel ride. Would recommend.
Sunset views the highlight
, Jan 2022
A fun afternoon/evening. Highlight was the view across the desert at sunset. Food was plentiful and the entertainment was 'entertaining'. Driver was a bit crazy on the journey!!
Something for everyone - a good value for money.
, Dec 2021
This tour has something for everyone. From thrill seeker to love of arts and culture. This tour has adventure: off-roading through the desert, dune bashing and dune buggy rides to camel rides, Arabic coffee and dates, a bar, buffet dinner and incredible middle eastern and fire dancers. If you do not like the dune bashing, you can stay at the camp or request a gentle safari ride. The dancers were incredible and so talented. Our driver Imran was so kind and generous with his time. The camp is better than I expected but a bit rustic. Don't expect much from the buffet meal - you get fed but it's not the reason for going. Areas of improvement: 1. better communication before the tour to confirm, etc.. 2. Less waiting time after adventure rides and the show and dinner begin
Unforgettable trip
, Oct 2021
