Pass By: Dubai, Dubai, Emirate of Dubai

Choose from 4-hour program that includes dune bashing, sandboarding and camel ride or the full 7-hour program with the addition of a BBQ dinner and enjoy many other activities at a VIP Bedouin-style camp'.

Start your experience with pickup in a safari-style 4WD vehicle from your central Dubai hotel and zoom into the remote Lahbab desert that lies outside the city.

During the drive, your guide answers any questions and shares information about the region. Head off road into bright red dunes and have your camera ready to capture what looks like giant beanbags of sand. During a break to gather the convoy, make use of optional quad bikes on-site. Then hold tight as you cruise toward the highest slopes. Feel the adrenaline race as your 4x4 plows up the dunes before sliding and slipping back down the slopes, churning up billowing clouds of sand in the process.

Reach a high desert dune for a photo stop and admire 360-degree views of the desert landscape as the sun slowly sets (afternoon tour). Take a camel ride and surf the dunes on a sandboard before you continue on to a Bedouin-style camp hidden in the middle of the desert (if 7-hour option selected).

The 4-hour tour ends here and you are returned to your Dubai hotel.

For those who have chosen a 7-hour tour, proceed to a torchlit camp, settle inside a cushion-strewn tent, and savor some fresh Arabian coffee and dates. Your safari guide will brief you about the various activities available: smoke a shisha (water pipe), decorate your hands with henna designs, and take pictures in traditional Arabic clothes.

As dusk falls, dig into a scrumptious barbecue dinner of dishes such as kebabs, hummus, and salads accompanied by sodas and mineral water, and additional drinks (own expense) from the bar. While you eat, enjoy a colorful belly dancing show and tanoura performance, where fast-spinning dancers whirl across the stage. If you wish, click snaps with Arabian falcons at the camp.

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

Great time, great people. Everything went off as described. Exciting dune ride that lasted longer than I had anticipated. The camel ride was fun, the bbq very good and the entertainment well done. We had a great group of seven people and that made it all the more enjoyable!

We really enjoyed this tour! The dunes were beautiful and our tour was small, only one other guest, and our guide was very attentive. The desert camp was a lot of fun and had a variety of things to do. The falcons were so awesome to see!

The dune ride was more fun then we expected and we felt realy safe with our driver/guade Ali. He allso told us much abut the U.A.E. and how it works. The food and the intertanment in the entertianment were not a letdown.

Pick up was very smooth from the cruise port terminal. And once we made a few stops to pick up others from different hotels we made our way into the desert. Camel riding and sand boarding we’re short, but we got great pictures and videos of both! But the sand bashing was the BEST PART! Jabar (our driver) has been doing this for 10 years and made the experience amazing. I would definitely recommend this morning sand dunes trip.

I organized this safari during a 18hour layover based on reviews. I booked the morning safari but missed it due to my flight to Dubai getting delayed due to storms in Dubai. However, the team were fantastic and booked me on the afternoon safari on short notice and picked me up from a different location too on very short notice. Our driver Jabari was fantastic and made the safari very enjoyable. I thoroughly recommend this tour.
