The best ways to see the desert of Dubai are: dune bashing in a Land Cruiser, camelback, sandboarding, and the option to have a BBQ dinner and shows at a traditional Bedouin camp.

Ride into the desert in a 4x4 vehicle following your pickup in Dubai and enjoy this thrilling adventure with family and friends.

Stop to try sandboarding on the red dunes as well as dune bashing in a Land Cruiser.

At a Bedouin camp, you and your group can take pictures of the stunning sunset over the desert. Try henna painting in the evening and hop on a camel for a fun ride.

Watch a traditional Tanura show and belly dancing performance while relaxing at a Bedouin camp. At a barbecue dinner with Arabic coffee, fresh dates, falafel, and shawarma, savor the rich flavors of local cuisine.

Felt super safe from pickup. Our driver was fab and lovely to our six year old daughter. We had a great day and definitely recommended. A must for desert pics too and no extra charges once you’re there as we’ve found with other experiences. Thank you

Great itinerary and highly recommended activity when visiting Dubai. Our driver Zahid was well organised and gave us instructions at each stop in the desert experience.

The short camel ride was definitely a highlight as well as the amazing entertainment provided at the camp Al Jabal Village. The bbq dinner was superb, amazing food was provided and well organised. Just be prepared for various sellers app...

Imran was an amazing host, he kept in pod contact to arrange our lift and kept us up to date on when he would pick us up. He was very friendly and dealt with everything for us.

Imran was very helpful and took care of us at the desert camp , took all the photos of us on our phones and made sure we were sorted and comfortable at all times. He has a good taste in music for the ride in the desert and between the different loc...

Syed was an amazing guide, very friendly and gave us lots of information about the area during the drive. We weren’t sure whether to do the quad bikes but he assured us that it would be lots of fun, which it was. We’re so glad we did it. The camel ride was fun and the sand boarding was too. All in all it was a brilliant afternoon, finished off by watching the sunset. We would highly recommend this trip.
