Evening Desert Safari With BBQ Dinner, Henna Painting, Camel Ride and Belly Dance
Abu Dhabi’s skyscrapers are just one face of the UAE—the other is the desert lying outside the city. Appreciate the arid wilderness with ease on a tour including dune bashing, camel riding, and a desert camp dinner. Explore the desert dunes, with entertainment, quad biking (own expense), and round-trip transfers by Land Cruiser. Plus, this experience saves the money, time, and the hassle of organizing activities independently.
What to Expect
After pickup in central Abu Dhabi or your hotel, travel by shared 4x4 Toyota Land Cruiser toward the Al Khatim region. Admire the views as you hear about UAE’s culture on route, and after about 45 minutes, join a caravan of other 4x4s for a dune bash.

Ride up and over the dunes and visit a camel farm to observe the desert animals. Then, continue to a Bedouin-inspired desert camp, and after Arabic coffee and dates, or a soda, tea, or water, take your pick of the desert activities.

Ride a camel, go sandboarding, get a henna tattoo, dress in Arabic robes for a souvenir photo, or take a quad bike ride (own expense). Then, watch a belly dancing show and savor a barbecue dinner of Emirati and Western dishes under the stars.

Your experience concludes back at the original departure point.

Please note: During the month of Ramadan, this activity will not include entertainment and alcohol will not be served.
