Set out on an unforgettable journey across the Dubai Desert from morning to night. You can enjoy interactive cultural activities and a mouthwatering barbecue buffet at a Bedouin desert camp as well as the excitement of driving through red sand dunes.

Take a four-wheel drive vehicle out of the bustling city and into the tranquil desert. Enjoy a tranquil rest stop and an optional quad bike ride when you arrive.

Then, pause for a minute and tie in for a ridge slamming ride across the dazzling red hills of the Lehbab Desert. Get the chance to try sandboarding for an extra rush of adrenaline.

Continue to the Al Marmoom Oasis, where dates, sweets, and Arabic coffee await you. Go on a 10-minute camel ride across the sand and say hello to the camp's resident camels.

You can smoke shika, do henna painting, and meet the resident falcon expert and his faithful bird at the camp.

At sunset, the buffet barbecue begins. Watch a local Bedouin performance as you eat. A tasting of a variety of local desserts is a great way to end your meal on a high note.

As a final treat, the camp will go dark, giving you a chance to relax in the quiet desert atmosphere before being taken back to your hotel in Dubai.

We had amazing time thanks to our one and only Master of driving and Super care guide Aqeel.

This tour company went beyond what I expected. Their communication is exceptional even at 2:30 in the morning! Gamal was our guide (14yrs experience), extremely nice, friendly, and helpful. He made my experience feel like a private tour in many ways. This company is fortunate to have his dedication.

Abbas Besso was the absolute best tour guide! The hotel pickup started with a friendly smile. The sand bashing was absolutely exhilarating - he was an extremely skilled driver through the sand dunes so it was fun yet safe. Lots of water provided. Sand boarding was pretty different than snowboarding but very fun. Camel rides, pictures with falcons, beautiful desert sunset, bbq feast, cultural dancing, and the list goes on. This was the experience of a lifetime and I would highly recommend Abbas!

This safari was easily the highlight of my trip to Dubai. You got to experience a little of everything and had ample time to do so. Our guide, Abid Wahid, was amazing. He really went out of his way to make sure we had a great time. I’d highly recommend this particular safari, if you find yourself debating like we were. You won’t be disappointed!
