Desert Safari in Dubai with Barbecue Dinner and Live Shows
From US$58.65
Dubai’s desert isn’t just about sand and dunes: It’s a living part of Emirati traditions and history. With this tour, experience the full desert-and-culture package in one afternoon and evening—difficult to arrange independently. Enjoy a dune bash, camel ride, sandboarding, and henna art. Watch belly-dancing performances and savor an Arabian Nights atmosphere with dinner under the stars. Hotel pickup and drop-off make the experience ultra-smooth and convenient.
What to Expect
Depart your Dubai hotel by air-conditioned 4WD and journey into the desert.

Once outside the city, go off road and enjoy a dune bash: zooming over the slopes with a guide/driver at the wheel. Then, head to an oasis and camel farm before climbing up a dune for photos of the desert sunset.

Next, continue to a safari camp that's designed to replicate a traditional Bedouin settlement. Here, try sandboarding and camel riding, and enjoy an optional quad bike drive (own expense). Then, slow the pace by getting a henna tattoo, donning Arabian robes for souvenir photos (own expense), and trying a shisha (Arabic water pipe).

Watch live belly dance and tanoura (whirling dervish) shows and savor an open-air buffet of barbecued meats and Emirati specialties with unlimited soda and water. Alcoholic drinks are available to purchase.

Your experience finishes with a drop-off at your hotel.

Worth doing while in Dubai

Not a mind blowing experience but not an expensive tour so good value and does give you an insight into life outside the glitz of Dubai. Vehicles and drivers are very good and dune bashing was reasonably exciting especially for anyone who haven't experienced sand...More
