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”!

Just awesome! We really enjoyed this trip. We were with two kids (4 and 9 years) - no problem, they love every part of it. Dunes ride, camel ride, henna tattoo, dinner, show, squads... Our driver was so great, very smart man called Imram. Highly recommended. Desert is just beautiful...

After an uncomplicated online booking the day before, the driver picked us up at the hotel as agreed. The journey was very entertaining thanks to various jokes and the safety briefing put all guests in the mood for the upcoming event. We went through the desert with 3 other jeeps. You shouldn't do the tour on a full stomach (small tip on the side). The stay and the show (belly dance, fire show, dancer) in the desert camp was also very successful. Here souvenir dealers try to earn one or the other Euro / Dirham by taking photos while riding a camel etc. The dealers are friendly even if you don't buy anything. After a short greeting there was the possibility to try sandboarding, camel riding, shisha ... for a fee a quad tour / pickup tour was offered to drive through the desert yourself. The buffet was varied and sufficient. We can only recommend the tour for young and old.
