Overview
Dubai’s desert isn’t just about sand and dunes: It’s a living part of Emirati traditions and history. On this tour, experience the full desert-and-culture package in one afternoon and evening—difficult to arrange independently. Enjoy a dune bashing session, camel ride, sandboarding, and henna art. Watch cultural performances like belly dancing and savor an Arabian Nights atmosphere with a barbecue buffet dinner under the stars. Hotel pickup and drop-off make the experience ultra-smooth and convenient.
Highlights
  • All-in-one desert adventure, culture, and dinner experience from Dubai
  • Multiple desert activities: dune bashing, sandboarding, camel ride, and more
  • Live folkloric dance shows, plus buffet barbecue dinner under the stars
  • Return transfers with Dubai hotel pickup and drop-off for convenience
What to Expect
Depart your Dubai hotel by air-conditioned SUV and journey into the desert. Once outside the city, go off-road and enjoy a dune bash: zooming over the slopes with a guide-driver at the wheel. Then, head to an oasis and camel farm before climbing up a dune for photos of the desert sunset. Next, continue to a safari camp that's designed to replicate a traditional Bedouin settlement. Here, try sandboarding and camel riding, and enjoy an optional quad bike drive (own expense). Then, slow the pace by getting a henna tattoo, donning Arabian robes for souvenir photos (own expense), and trying a shisha (Arabic water pipe). Watch live belly dance and tanoura (whirling dervish) shows and savor an open-air buffet of barbecued meats and Emirati specialties with unlimited soda and water. Alcoholic drinks are available to purchase. Your experience finishes with a drop-off at your hotel.
