Loved our day out in the desert while on holiday in Dubai! The highlights were the camel rides and the dune bashing, the buffet was also really tasty and really well organised. The start of our trip wasn’t so great hence only a 4 star review, as we were taken to a Quad Bike facility even though we had no desire to ride the bikes. We were also forced to buy a headscarf at £8 per person, which we then found later that we didn't need as we weren’t participating in the quads. The entertainment was also really poor, just a guy spinning in costume and a lady performing some very amateur belly dancing. We did however really enjoy the day, it’s just a shame we had to waste the first hour of our precious day being pushed to buy merch and quad biking.

This was an amazing experience that was made all the better by our guide Kashif. He was communicative and gave us a great feel for this history and culture of Dubai. He had a great attitude and told hilarious stories while we drove to the different destinations. For the experience itself you first start out with riding on an ATV. They bring you to a riding area, give you a helmet, and then you are free to drive for your time on the tour. They also will take a picture of you that you can pay 40 AED for. Don’t worry if you forget to bring water, they offer free water, soft drinks, coffee, and tea throughout the tour. Next they take you dune bashing. The ride was a lot of fun and our driver Kashif knows what he is doing. They stop at the top of one of the larger dunes so you can slide down the dune in either a standing or sitting. Definitely try both. Kashif then offers to take photos of you on the Dune (and he takes great photos). After giving a us 5 minutes of free time to take photos on our own we had another dune bash to the camp. At the camp you get to ride and feed the camels! They are a lot bigger than I expected. You will be quite high when compared to riding on a horse. They will take some nice photos of you to sell later (starting at around 250 AED, but they come in a nice glass prism) and with your phone. After you are allowed to pet and feed the camels. Depending on the timing of your tour you will have an opportunity to take a photo of the sunset on another dune before entering the camp. At the camp they have everything. Modern and clean restrooms, free desserts, refreshments, henna, a live falcon, and gift shops. They give you three performances and in between serve dinner. The dinner is amazing. It’s a buffet of three different types of cuisines, BBQ, and dessert. The BBQ in particular is probably the best I have ever had. Of course you can eat as much as you like. After that they drop you off at the same location your requested pickup. It’s really an amazing deal. Especially when compared to the other experiences I have see on YouTube, this tour is really all inclusive.

Our tour guide, Sarwar was personable and knowledgeable. We were reached out to the day prior to confirm and picked up on time. The tour itself was so exciting and one we’ll remember for the rest of our lives. I would 100% so this the next time I come back. Run, don’t walk - purchase this excursion asap!

With great guidance and organization of our guide Mr. Roshin, we had an amazing safari experience. Timing, cleanliness, detailed couture of the event was unforgettable. We highly suggest OceanAire Travel and Kyma Group Camp for this spectacular discovery.
