Full description
Embark on an unforgettable day-to-evening journey across the Dubai Desert. Experience the thrill of driving through red sand dunes and feel the hospitality of a Bedouin desert camp, where you can partake in interactive cultural activities and feast on a delicious BBQ buffet. Drive out of the bustling city and into the peaceful desert aboard a 4x4 Land Cruiser. When you arrive, enjoy a relaxing rest stop and go on an optional quad bike ride while other convoys catch up.  Next, sit back and strap in for a dune bashing ride across the stunning red dunes of the Lehbab Desert. For an extra kick of adrenaline, get the chance to try out sandboarding.  Continue to the Al Khayma Camp and be welcomed with Arabic coffee, sweets, and dates. Say hello to the camp’s resident camels and, if you’d like, go on a 10-minute camel ride across the sand. During your time at the camp, you can smoke Shisha, do Henna painting, and meet the resident falcon expert and his loyal bird.  The buffet barbecue begins at sunset. While you eat, be entertained by traditional dances performed in the center stage. Finish your dinner on a high note with a tasting of various local desserts. As a final treat, the camp will go dark, giving you the opportunity to take in the peaceful ambiance of a desert night before being returned to your accommodation in Dubai.

This was a wonderful tour!!! For a city where things are pretty expensive you get a lot for what you pay for. Getting out to the desert, going dune bashing, sand boarding, seeing some performances, getting food all for around $70 USD is great. The driver did a good job picking us up on time and driving on the dunes. Some tours say it but only drive on the sand. This tour had real dune bashing with the car driving quickly and sharply over which made it fun. Never felt in any danger but it was cool to bounce around and have the car drive on an angle and stuff. The cars had extra handholds inside so people could stabilize themselves if wanted too
