Full description
Escape the heat and hassle of Ras Al Khaimah’s urban center on an afternoon and evening desert safari by 4WD vehicle.

Following a pick-up from your hotel, relax in the air-conditioned off-road vehicle. Head to the desert dunes that surrounds the city, and admire views of the barren yet enchanting landscape on the way. Stop at a traditional camel farm to see herds of the magnificent hump-backed herbivores. Learn about the different types of camels commonly seen in the desert around Ras Al Khaimah.

Continue across the desert plains in your 4WD vehicle, and arrive at a campsite where Arabic coffee and dates are offered as a welcome. Climb on the back of a camel for an optional guided tour around the encampment. Get a henna tattoo design on your hands or feet. Watch a traditional Tanourah folk dance, and feast on a delicious barbecue dinner.

After dinner, smoke a shisha (Arabic water pipe) if you wish, and watch a live belly-dance performance. Relax under a canopy of twinkling stars, and enjoy an experience that could be straight out of “One Thousand and One Nights”!
