Full description

Swap Dubai's towering skyscrapers for the rolling red sand dunes of the Lahbab Desert on this excitement-filled trip from Dubai. Experience 4x4 dune bashing, sandboarding, and a camel rides, and the Al Khayma desert camp, with the option to add on an exciting quad bike experience.

With round-trip transportation included, you'll be picked up in an air-conditioned 4x4 and head into the desert. When you arrive, pick up the pace as you dune bash in an all-terrain vehicle across the red sand, before jumping out to try sandboarding and take in the view.

For even more thrills, take the option of adding a quad bike ride and set off on a high speed adventure across the dunes. But this trip isn't all about adrenaline — after your sandy adventures, you'll make your way to the stunning Al Khayma desert camp and an authentic camel farm.

Receive a warm welcome of traditional Arabic coffee and sweets at the camp and take some time to relax and take in the breathtaking views of the Arabian Desert, the second largest sandy desert on Earth. Next, you'll make your way to meet the area's friendly camels.

Learn how these animals are a key part of traditional Bedouin culture and hop on for a short camel ride across the sand. It's the perfect way to immerse yourself in desert life before climbing back into the 4x4 to return to the city.

    Great morning safari. Hassan, our driver was fantastic. We did not want to do the quad biking and there was no hard sell to do it. The Camel ride was longer than other safaris we have done in the past which was great. Glad we got the beverages package as it is needed in that heat and don’t have to worry about paying for it while there. Dune bashing was great too. Could have been a little longer but we enjoyed it nonetheless. The company communicated with me really well ahead of the safari so I know what to except. Thanks!

    Ali Magsi was our guide on this amazing trip. We were picked up from our hotel then taken to the dessert to ride the Camels, quad bike experience and then out in the dessert on the 4x4 riding through the dunes. Refreshments offered throughout the morning. Such value for money and a great experience. Would highly recommend.

    Abid Wahid was an amazing tour guide. When we were coming to the desert he was very respectful and kind. His kind nature helped us feel very connected and comfortable with him. He was obviously well educated about the culture of Dubai and allowed us to further appreciate and understand the culture and beauty of the country. Everyone enjoyed the camel ride. We then drove on the sand dunes, which our 10 year old son loved. He we laughing through out the whole ride. We then went to the sand boarding where Abid was very helpful and calm with helping us being successful in the sand boarding. And our kids loved it. We then wanted to go to th camel rides again and Abid was absolutely fine with it. Our kids enjoyed the ride one more time and Abid took wonderful pictures of us, that will forever remind us of the amazing memories with made with each other and with Abid in Dubai and will cherish forever.
