This tour lets you enjoy a full line-up of activities with ease, from sand boarding and dune bashing to camel rides in the red dunes. If you wish, upgrade to add a desert camp visit, where henna art, a barbecue-buffet dinner, and live entertainment await. Whichever option you choose, hotel transfers are included for convenience.

Highlights
  • Visit an area of red dunes and enjoy various desert activities with ease
  • Choose a morning or afternoon sand board, dune bash, and camel ride experience
  • Upgrade to add a BBQ-buffet dinner and live shows at a desert camp
What to expect
  • 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.

We had an amazing trip with our driver Said Khan, who, surprisingly, is also a great photographer! 😀 We did camel riding, sandboarding and dune bashing. It was so much fun! The food was much better than expected and service was great 👌

We had a very enjoyable trip from the moment our guide Najeeb collected us from our hotel.
A very professional setup and good local commentary on the drive.
Lots of fun had by all.
Najeeb also advised he is currently looking for his second Wife !

Bishi made this excursion so much more memorable. The trip begun with a fun car ride and he made us feel so comfortable, especially when he allowed us to play our favorite music using his bluetooth. He jammed with us so much we thought he already knew our songs. The sandboarding was something I would have never done but he reassured me it was safe. After the evening events ended he safely left us at our hotel and I realized after he left that I left my camel memory photo in his car! Bishi made sure I didn’t go home without it and left it with concierge at the hotel the next day, something Im sure was not in his plans. Im so grateful to have met Bishi and if I ever find myself back in Dubai or anyone else I know, I will not look for anyone else but Bishi to guide my trip. Thank u Bishi! You are truly the best! (kCulaso loves u!)

We had a fantastic guide in Mohammad, he was great, much fun and did everything to make this wonderful afternoon a great experience.
We would highly recommend this tout, and if you can get Mohammed, it would be the cherry on the cake.

We booked the 4-hour tour without dinner. We had a great day with our guide Ikhlaq. We were a small group of people so he could take care of us during the trip very well. After picking us up from our hotel, we had the ability to ride a quad in the desert (not included in the trip). After that we had an adventurous ride in the beautiful desert and some time to take pictures. Ikhlaq helped us with it. Then we sand-boarded which was really fun and a special experience. At the end we were able to ride a camel and the guide took some pictures. All in all it was an awesome trip with special activities you won’t forget that quickly.

My experience was absolutely amazing. I had the best time thanks to my tour guide, Ibrahim. He did everything imaginable to insure I have the best time. He took high quality pictures, made I had water at all times. I went on my own so was really nice to feel safe on the tour. Highly recommend and ask for Ibrahim!
