Desert Safari in Dubai with Barbecue Dinner and Live Shows
US$53.00 per adult
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.

Wow adventure

First time experiencing Dune bashing. Beautiful experience with Dubai Leisure Holidays. This is a worth every Dhiram paid, and our host driver was such a gentleman, going out of his way to make us feel welcome in Dubai. The shows are also brilliant.

Wonderful time, worth doing even with short trip to dubai

My wife and I were on our honeymoon with a 48 hour leg in Dubai before going on to Africa. We were worried taking a 6 hour safari in June might not be the best use of time but we are so happy we did....More

Probably not recommended for children under 4 , as they will need safety seats in the vehicles and I'm not sure about the tour company's public liability insurance.
