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.

Really enjoyed our morning desert experience which included quad bikes which were great fun, camel ride, sand boarding and dune bashing, our guide Sharaf was excellent, friendly and very knowledgeable and always checking we were ok. Lots of opportunities to take photos, Sharaf also took videos and photos for us. Pick up from hotel at 8am and back before midday. Would definitely recommend.

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 definitel...

Our guide Akbar was very friendly. He made our Dessert safari experience so good and one of the best activities we did in Dubai. I had a 7yr old and a 1yr old daughter with me and we were in safe hands. I was worried about Dune bashing with kids but he mentioned I can wait in the waiting area with the kids while my husband and siblings go ahead with it. It was a very clean and safe place with air con on and drinks , dates provided also with bathroom facility. I was worried about heat so chose...
