Full description
Begin your Dubai desert safari with a prompt pick up from your accommodation in a 4WD vehicle. After the 40-minute drive to reach the Red Dunes for a safari, you can take a quad bike ride if you are looking for more adventure.

Enjoy the Dune Bashing activity and try sand boarding with a photo secession. Later, move on to the Bedouin camp where Arabian Qahwa, Luqaimat, dates, and soft drinks will be served as a sign of welcome. You can wear Kandora and Abaya, the traditional Arabian attires, and pose for more photographs. Later, you will be taken for a camel ride to enjoy the most beautiful desert sunset. Take amazing photos with the backdrop of the setting sun.

Must-do camp activities include henna tattooing and shisha smoking. Enjoy the Tanoura and belly dance performances. The Bedouin camp entertainment is followed by a lavish barbecue meal and various Arabian desserts.
