What To Expect

After pickup from your central Dubai hotel, relax into your air-conditioned 4x4 and journey into the desert. On route, chat to your guide, who acts as your driver, and hear fascinating stories about Dubai and the desert around you.

Go off road and head into an area of dunes for an exciting dune bash. Hold tight as your 4x4 ploughs up the sandy slopes before skidding and sliding back down.

Continue to a beautiful, Bedouin-style desert camp nestled in the heart of the dunes. Hop out of your 4x4 into the torchlit grounds and enjoy a revitalizing Arabic coffee and fresh dates. If you wish, try an aromatic shisha (Arabic water pipe) along with your coffee.

Duly refreshed, take off on a quad bike ride. Listen to a safety briefing and instructions, pull on a provided helmet, and zip and zoom around the camp and desert terrain.

Visit a camel farm and enjoy a short ride on one of these hardy desert animals. Afterward, admire some examples of delicate sand art, and if you wish, get a henna tattoo etched onto your hands or feet.

As darkness falls, return to the camp for a delectable barbecue dinner. Menus may vary, but typical dishes include shawarma (spit-roast meat wraps), Arabic salads and kebabs teamed with complimentary sodas and additional drinks (own expense) from the bar.

During your meal, enjoy a glittering belly dance show and watch ‘tanoura’ dancers spin, whirling dervish-style, across the floor, in time to rhythmic Arabian music.

Finally, return to Dubai by 4x4 and end your experience with a hotel drop-off.

Our guide, Chocolate Khan, was excellent and caring, he looked after us, and he was funny. The show, the guy with the rolling clothes around, the fire dance, and the belly dancers were unique and beautiful. It is a must-see. Need to add the camel riding and the quad bikes. Go for the package. You won't regret it.

Desert Safari is beautiful
Deborah_T, Apr 2024
Everything was nice and beautiful and the most important experience was the bike riding. I really had fun and I’ll surely recommend you to family and friends. Thank you and the tour guide was such a nice person.
Awesome Tour
Esmeralda_C, Apr 2024
This was the most fun tour that I did in Dubai. From the driver, Mr G and to all the activities. We enjoyed every single activities and we wanted to come back to do other stuff. I love how the activities were broken down. My favorite was the ATV because I was encouraged to do which I didn’t like at first . The safari sand dune was exciting. First time to ride on a camel and I wish it would be longer and not just on a circle . Mr G was very accommodating , friendly and respectful.He’s a very good tour guide. Food at dinner was just okay although I love the snacks and dates very much .The Egyptian dancer guy was awesome as well as the guy who danced with the fire . There’s a lot of seller but it’s okay . Overall, I highly recommended it.,

Sofia_D, Mar 2024
From the moment we got picked up to the moment we got dropped off everything was a 10/10. The experience overall was incredible and included so many things in the package that I was so surprised about. The food was also amazing and you could even get seconds. Everyone was so nice and knowledgeable. All the instructions were clear and we had enough time for everything. My favorite was the quad.

Desert Safari
Komalpreet_K, Feb 2024
Worth the price!! Once again worth the price.. the guide ( Mr Gulam or you can say Mr. G) was amazing. He was very thorough and helpful. He explained everything and took our beautiful pictures. The desert safari was excellent, camel ride, RTV ride, ended with beautiful show and great food, day was well spent.. but the favorite part was Mr. G making sure we enjoyed every thing and we are comfortable. Thank you Gulam for memories.

Enjoyable experience!
RJ_P, Jan 2024
We had an amazing time experiencing the desert safari tour especially with our tour guide John! He was professional, knowledgeable and very funny, which added more to an already fun day. The only negative review I have and would warn others is when you arrive at the dinner experience. Watch out for the guy who carves your name in gold and Arabic calligraphy. He will try his best to scam you and charge without your consent. Please avoid him as that turned our day upside down a bit. Otherwise, this is a must do experience!

Ghulam was AMAZING, very welcoming and friendly. He also was through, paid attention to detail and made sure we had a great time. The experience was adventurous and a lot of fun. I would definitely recommend this activity to anyone and everyone. Whether you're in a group, a couple, or traveling solo.

Fun excursion
AJ_K, Dec 2023
Fun excursion- our driver John and the other guides were friendly and super helpful and took amazing pics! Long drive to get there (approximately 45 min from our hotel) and gets a little chilly once the sun sets so recommend bringing a light coat or sweatshirt.
