Full description

Leave the crowds of Dubai behind on this safari tour into the desert. Drive in a 4x4 Jeep vehicle over towering sand dunes and watch sun sets over the soft sands. Be welcomed into a dessert camp for activities like shisha smoking and henna painting. Eat a delicious BBQ dinner with a dancing show.

Once at the camp, enjoy the many traditions of local hospitality, including Arabic snacks and warm beverages. Settle in with Bedouin-style seating and enjoy an aromatic Shisha water pipe before heading off to visit a camel farm.

You'll have the chance to embark on a camel ride, view local sand art, and admire the traditional Arabic attire and work of henna designers. Next, feast on a traditional BBQ dinner of grilled meats, fresh salads, and delicious local sweets, while watching belly dancing and listening to classical Arabic music.

Following dinner there will be a Tanoura show; watch this amazing whirling dervish dance, a folk tradition of the Middle East.

It was our first time doing a desert safari and it definitely did not disappoint! John was our driver and was very professional and took amazing pictures and videos of each group, he gave us some great information on the drive to the desert and was friendly throughout the trip. The camel ride, quad bikes and camp dinner at the end were all amazing experiences - thank you!

This was my second time on safari and my girlfreinds first time. The experience was amazing and our guide Ghulam was very helpful, kind and caring. He was also an amazing photographer. This tour will give you some good memories to look back on. I recommend this trip for everyone viziting Dubai! AMAZING.

Our guide John was very friendly and nice. Despite the somewhat long outward journey, he showed us other sights inland, so that the time was put to good use. The tour was great fun and the dances in the camp were very entertaining. We were well guided through the evening by John so that we lacked nothing.
