Our driver Nadeem was prompt on time for pick up. Very friendly always helpful and smiling. The dune bashing was great with all safety taken into consideration. Tour included a short camel ride and sand boarding. Ended the night with an excellent buffet meal. Enjoyed the amazing desert scenery with lots of camels to view along the way … well worth it.

Great family trip
Kelly_M, Apr 2024

Hillarious
Andrea_R, Apr 2024
The best trip ever, very punctual picup at the hotel with previous communication and reminder, the team at the beduin camp super nice and professional!
Fantastic time had by all
Lisa_T, Apr 2024
Amazing experience from start to finish… don’t hesitate to book as you will not be disappointed 👍 Great pick up and drop off… no issues and communication great. Lovely set up throughout camp. Fantastic camel rides (plentiful) Lovely staff and very attentive and helpful. Dune bashing really good fun and sunset picture stop off was great. Buffet was delicious and plentiful, drinks not badly priced. Shows were spectacular and unexpected in quality esp fire show. Sand boarding could have been better as boards a little old, sledges would have been better for children but that’s only a minor issue. Photographer on hand to capture lots of lovely family memories. All in all a real highlight of our holiday. Thank you to all the team
Good fun and great value

Very entertaining afternoon and evening!
Susan_A, Feb 2024
Excellent trip, dune bashing was great fun! Camel ride fun and entertaining. The BBQ was very tasty, the entertainment was excellent!!! An incredible belly dancer, an amazing folk dancer and the most sensational fire eater/ entertainer. Although photos were taken there was no hard sell to purchase. Free small henna tattoos were available. Would definitely recommend this trip and to purchase through Viator rather than locally.

Brilliant
Jill_L, Feb 2024
Fantastic trip would definitely recommend. Driver arrived on time, only took 25 minutes to get to the desert. Saw a couple of camels roaming. On reaching the reception area of the bedouin camp we were given a coffee and dates. Next stop was the xamel rides which were amazing then back to the car for dune bashing. Wow was like being on a roller coaster. Back at the camp we had light refreshments. We were entertained by a belly dance who was really good and also an amazing fire eater. Al in all a really fantastic experience well worth the money

Wonderful desert safari, fab food and entertainment!
Vicky_K, Oct 2023
We were a little out of our comfort zone to begin with, we were collected from our hotel later than we thought we would be but they did send a message confirming the time and this went smoothly. We were taken to the camp and offered coffee and dates. We booked a quad bike trip for my son so when he went off to do that, my husband and I were directed to the camp area. On the way to the camp, we were offered a camel ride. My husband did not want to do it so i felt obliged. It was fairly short and sweet . We then went to the camp area where we sat down to wait. This felt quite strange as we were left on our own with no further information. I thought we could get soft drinks but these had to be paid for so we had water instead. There was no mention of sand boarding which was said to be included. The man from the shop was keen for us to buy from him but we werent that keen. After waiting for a while, my son returned. He had a great time on the quad bikes! We sat around for a bit longer not really knowing what we should be doing which was a bit uncomfortable. I went to try and find a guide who said they had been waiting for us! (No time had been mentioned). We were then directed to the vehicle for the desert safari. My husband was a bit wary at first trusting another driver (as he is an advanced driver himself) however the trust was soon gained and we all thoroughly enjoyed the desert safari! A real thrill, especially on the steep parts! Our driver also stopped to assist another driver who had got stuck which was good to watch! We stopped in the dunes and the photographer who had come with us took lots of photos. We then returned to camp. This was followed by a desert bbq (which was delicious and more than just a bbq ) there was so much food it seemed a shame there weren't more people there to enjoy it! We then had entertainment which was really good, especially the fire eater! Once the entertainment was over, we were shown the photos (which we ended up buying!) It was then time to return to our hotel. All in all a very enjoyable trip, a little disjointed in places however the safari, food and entertainment made up for it!

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for the fabulous review. Thank you for mentioning your experience in such a nice detail and for pointing out the wait time between activities. At Bedouin Oasis, we prefer to give our guests ample amount of time to explore the property, and the surroundings rather than rushing the itinerary to contain in a few hours' capsule. We notice most of our guests appreciate the fact that they are let alone while enjoying the nature. We are really grateful to you for spending your time to create such a nice review which will be definitely a great encouragement to our future guests. We look forward to receiving you again sometime in the future. Kind regards, Gulf Tours Team
Dune bashing RAK style
Dave_O, May 2023
The dune bashing was very exilerating Camel ride was good The food at the bbq was hot and very tasty The three performers were very good but I did feel for them performing to such a small audience
Response from Host, May 2023
Dear Dave, Thank you very much for your great review. It was our pleasure reading your review. Some days the number of guests may be down due to various reasons. But the quality of the service will be always made sure. We look forward to seeing you again sometime in the future. Kind Regards,
Great desert safari
Lizzie_S, Apr 2023
It was all fabulous! Our driver kicked us up on time from the hotel and we loved the crazy 4x4’ing in the dunes. Tip- perhaps sit in the front if you suffer from motion sickness. Quad biking was an extra charge but we loved it and thought it good value. Was a little underwhelmed by the camel ride which was very short. Food was a BBQ and was plentiful and the paid bar was reasonable. Loved the fire eating show! All in all a great experience!
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Dear Guest, Thank you for the fabulous review! We are glad to read that you had a wonderful experience at our camp. The short camel ride is a common inclusion of almost all our itineraries. Some guests prefer to have a very short ride. if you wanted to enjoy it a bit more, you could simply ask the camel person, and he would have happily done the needful for you. We hope to see you again to enjoy our services.
The best trip
