Enjoy a desert safari in Dubai. Ride a camel, enjoy exhilarating dune bashing, and have an authentic barbecue while enjoying the traditional dance. Then stay overnight in a air-conditioned Bedouin tent, and go on a camel trek the next day.
After being collected from your accommodation in a comfortable 4WD vehicle, you will head to the Lahbab desert. Once in the desert, you will have some free time before your safari starts.
Relax here or opt to go for a quad-bike ride while your vehicle for the off-road dune drive is prepared, the choice is yours. Next up you will enjoy a dune bashing ride, feel the adrenaline rush as your vehicle climbs up and slides down the sand dunes.
Afterward, you can try sandboarding. Stand on the wooden board provided, balance yourself, and glide down over the sands.

Next up, head to Al Khayma, a Bedouin-type campsite, where you will be led to your own tent (Khayma) inside the camp. After settling in here, you can taste Gahwa (Arabic coffee), Gaymat (sweets), and dates as a sign of welcome.
Head out for a camel ride around the camp premises, and depending on the time and luck, view the sunset over the desert. Back at Al Khayma Camp, you can spend your time smoking shisha and henna painting.
Don local Arabian clothes and pose for photos with a falcon. Enjoy a lavish barbecue buffet dinner while a Khaliji dancer keeps you entertained. When the camp lights are turned off, feel the essence and magic of the desert while stargazing with a telescope.

Later, you will be taken by camel to a nearby camp area where a fire will be arranged for you. Learn how to make Arabic coffee or tea as you relax in the night sitting by the campfire, enjoying the silence of the desert and the dark sky above.
Your desert guide will add to the fun with interesting desert stories, and when it’s time to sleep, you will return to the camp. You will retire back to your tent for an overnight stay.

The following morning, wake up just before sunrise to witness a spectacular view. Your guide will take you to the desert with a camel caravan that is waiting outside the camp.
Then go for a short camel trek capturing the nice view of the sunrise over the sand dunes. After camel trekking, you will return to your tent before eating a freshly cooked Arabian breakfast.
Later, you will be driven back to Dubai and dropped off at your accommodation.

Good to know before you go

Any accidents or damages from the activity will be the sole responsibility of the rider and passenger. International travel insurance is recommended as self-driving activities are prone to risk, possibly leading to serious injury.
  • It is required to have a passport copy for tourists and an ID copy for residents; both soft and hard copies are accepted.
  • Pickup timing may change due to summer heat: 1 hour earlier in the morning and 1 hour later in the afternoon.
  • Casual clothing is advised in summer, and a jacket in winter.
  • Avoid bringing valuables and be cautious with henna if you have sensitive skin.
  • Individuals with back problems, disabilities, or those aged 60 and above are advised against riding camels.
