The Original experience

Highlights
  • Enjoy a morning safari in the Dubai Desert
  • Feel the adrenaline on a dune-bashing experience in a 4x4 Land Cruiser
  • Slide down the sand dunes by trying sandboarding
  • Visit the traditional desert camp of Al Khayma

Full description
After pickup from your hotel in a 4x4 Land Cruiser, you’ll head off with your local guide to the desert, just 45 minutes from Dubai. Upon reaching the Lahbab Desert, you’ll have about 20 minutes to relax. For the more adventurous, you can try quad biking, which is an optional activity.  Once your 4x4 vehicle is ready, you will hit the desert for about 30-45 minutes of dune bashing. Feel your stomach leap as the Land Cruiser drives up and down the tall red dunes. Marvel at how the vehicle tackles impossibly steep inclines and the uneven terrain of the sand.  Once the drive is over, you will have a chance to try sandboarding, or simply admire the scenery around you. Make sure you take plenty of photos of the scenic desert landscape.  Next stop is Al Khayma camp, where you’ll be welcomed with traditional Arabic coffee, sweets, dates, and light brunch if you have selected the upgraded brunch option. Then, visit a camel farm to learn about how these animals are a key part of traditional Bedouin culture. After enjoying a short camel ride, you will be dropped back at your hotel in Dubai.

Bash, our guide picked us up right on time, then he drove us to the desert and during the ride he showed us some attractions and told us about the history. Sand duning was fun but you shouldnt do it if you have motion sickness. Sand boarding and the camel ride were a nice experience, would definitely recommend!

An awesome guide Zahid Hussain customized our experience to match our needs and mood, breathtaking safari, stunning desert photos that would gathers lots and lots of likes, and a great camp at the end where you can ride a camel and enjoy authentic sweets. Can’t recommend this tour more and would be happy to come again.
