A four-wheel-drive vehicle will pick you up from your hotel and take you to the desert, 45 minutes from Dubai, with your local guide. After arriving at the Lahbab Desert, be invited into a cooled tent with rewards and time to unwind.

You can try quad biking as an optional activity and ride over Dubai's stunning red sand dunes if you're feeling more daring.

After that, you'll drive through the desert in a four-wheel-drive vehicle for a dune bashing adventure. As you ride up and down the tall red dunes, your stomach will jump. Admire the vehicle's ability to struggle with the sand's uneven terrain and impossible steep slopes.

After doing dune bashing, you can try sandboarding or just look around at the scenery. Take plenty of pictures of the beautiful desert landscape.

The next stop is Al Khayma Camp, where you'll be greeted with dates, sweets, and traditional Arabic coffee.

After that, pay a visit to a camel farm to learn more about the significance of these animals to Bedouin culture. Before returning to your hotel in Dubai, take a brief camel ride through the open desert.

Nazid Ali was our guide, since the day before he was very informative of how things were going to go. He arrived at the time he told me to pick us up. He was very nice and welcoming. When we arrived he explain everything. Offered water and was giving clear instructions. The ride was fun. When we had to do the camel ride he was taking pictures of us and was very helpful. Sand boarding was fun and we ended in a small shop were we stop to clean up the sand I got from me falling during the sand boarding experience. Everything was great I would definitely will recommend this to all my friend if they come to Dubai. Thank you Nazid you were awesome

Great desert safari trip! Our guide Rashid was really great, explained the itinerary and arrived promptly for pick up from our hotel. It was our daughter’s first time trying quad biking and Rashid explained how to use the quad bike and put the girls at ease. We also did camel riding, and sand boarding. Rashid was very helpful teaching the girls sand boarding, they loved it. The dune bashing was great! Rashid is a very experienced driver and we felt very safe. We saw the sunset which was beautiful. Definitely recommend this trip to anyone wanting to go on a desert safari!

Moosa kept in good contact with us and picked us up from the hotel at the marina , took us to the desert and guided us through everything. Quad bikes, sand bashing , camel rides also dune boarding. I don’t write reviews but this definitely deserves 5*. Thanks again

What a fantastic experience, definitely a must whilst in Dubai. Our guide was Lala, he was so helpful, he gave us lots of interesting information about Dubai and took amazing photographs for us. Nothing was too much trouble. We thoroughly enjoyed every single bit of the experience and made some amazing memories. The optional extras such as the quad bikes were great, with such a age range between our party, it meant the younger ones could have a go whilst the older ones watched. Will definitely be booking again next time we visit Dubai.
