Going off-road into the UAE desert alone is a no-no for safety reasons, making a guided tour the best option for a full Bedouin camp experience. This trip puts it on a plate with a 4WD dune bash, camel ride, sandboarding, belly dancing displays, and a barbecue buffet dinner in the sands. Plus, it offers optional quad biking (additional cost) and return transfers to give you the full works.
  • Dive into Abu Dhabi’s desert with a dune bash, activities, and dinner
  • Experience three desert musts: 4WD dune drive, camel ride, and desert camp
  • Try henna art, sandboarding, quad bikes (own expense)
  • Full experience includes starlit dinner, belly dance show, and transfers
What to Expect
After pickup from your Abu Dhabi hotel or Abu Dhabi port, relax into a 4WD Land Cruiser for the approximately 45-minute journey to the Al Khatim Desert, known for its rolling, empty dunes. On arrival, head to a camel farm for a short camel ride. Then, experience an exhilarating dune bash, as your driver takes your 4WD vehicle up and over the slopes at speed. Pause on a dune for photos of the sunset and continue to a Bedouin-inspired camp. Here, after Arabic coffee and fresh dates, choose from the activities on offer. Grab a sandboard to surf the dunes, get a henna tattoo on your hands, try a shisha (Arabic water pipe), and more. Plus, if you wish, take off on a quad bike (additional cost) across the sands. Finally, enjoy a belly dancing show and barbecue buffet dinner before returning to Abu Dhabi, where your experience concludes.
