Have a Dubai desert adventure without worrying about renting a car or planning multiple activities. Join your guide in a 4x4 vehicle to head out into the desert, where you'll go dune bashing, ride a camel, try sandboarding, and have dinner at a desert campsite. Sit around the campfire and experience traditional desert pastimes such as henna tattoos and tanoura folk dancing.
What to Expect
Begin your desert adventure with convenient pickup at your Dubai hotel. Focus on the scenery as your guide drives the rugged 4x4 out to the desert.

First, you’ll visit a camel farm to learn about the animal’s historic use in the region, and you’ll also get to ride one.

Next, head to a desert campsite for a sandboarding adventure. With your guide’s instruction, learn how to maneuver down the dunes. You can even race your friends.

Arrive at a desert camp as the sun sinks toward the horizon. Get some henna painting done and watch a folk-dance show. Dinner includes shawarma or barbecue, accompanied by traditional Arabian dishes. Before you head back to your drop-off point, sample shisha (using a traditional water pipe) while watching a belly-dance performance. Please note, an upgrade gets you an exclusive dinner table, a fruit basket, and a bottle of sparkling wine.

We booked this tour from the UK through Viator. Hotel pickup was on time and the Toyota Land Cruiser was clean and very comfortable. The pickup was at 13.45 and after a one hour drive we were off road and in the desert. Great experience...More

Dune bashing followed by a range of activities in a desert camp

This is a small group tour for the dune bashing part - a 4x4 picks you up direct from the hotel and joins a convoy of others for ~45mins of fairly spirited driving around the dunes. If you've got back trouble, make sure you tell...More

No they came to fetch us at the Hotel, and information on pickup was already left at the hotel one day prior to the day we were supposed to go there.
