Private Sunrise Desert Safari Tour from Abu Dhabi

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Begin with pickup from your Abu Dhabi hotel in the early hours of the morning, before sunup. Meet your private guide and settle inside your private, climate-controlled 4x4 — a plush Land Cruiser — for your journey into the desert.

    Gaze at the darkened landscapes and hear interesting facts about the desert and its natural history from your guide. Then, after a while, stop at a vantage point to witness the sunrise. Watch as the sun ascends over the golden dunes, and capture the views on camera as it illuminates the vast desertscapes.

    Next, continue to a Bedouin-style camp nestled in low dunes. Take a break here and relax over a rich Arabic coffee and fresh dates. Then, meet the camels assigned for your ride, and after a safety briefing and instructions, climb into the saddle.

    When you’re ready, set off on a short, guided trek. Settle into the rolling stride of your animal as you make your way over the dunes and enjoy the views from your elevated perch.

    When it’s time, dismount and return to your 4x4 for a dune drive. Hold tight as you take off at speed over the sands, and feel the thrill as your driver lets the tires slip to slide down the slopes.

    Finally, drive back to Abu Dhabi, where your tour concludes with a drop-off at your hotel.

    This morning I joined the private sunrise desert safari tour led by Faizee. As a very professional and caring guide, Faizee was familiar with the desert environment well and stopped the car at a good location where I could take numerous gorgeous shots of the sunrise! Faizee

    From the minute Faizee picked up us , we were very well taken care of, the sunrise over the desert was simply gorgeous, untouched by morning safaris. Faizee expert handling of the landcruiser during our fast and adventurous "dune bashing" was exhilarating , safe and so much fun
