Enjoy an adventure-packed desert safari and barbecue on this 6.5-hour afternoon and evening trip from Dubai. Cruise into the desert by 4x4, and with a highly trained driver, head into high dunes for a 30- to 45-minute dune bash. After sand boarding and a sunset photo op, enjoy activities like camel riding and quad biking (additional cost) before dinner and live entertainment. Hotel pickup and drop-off, dinner, drinks, and most desert activities included.
Depart your Dubai hotel by 4x4 at about 3pm, and journey into the desert.
Head off road into high dunes, and with a professional driver at the wheel, enjoy a 30- to 45-minute rollercoaster ride over the slopes. Hold tight as your 4x4 climbs and skids down the dunes before ascending for another descent.
After your dune bash, visit a viewpoint for photos of the desert sunset, and have a go at sand boarding. Then, continue to a traditional-style Bedouin camp, and enjoy an Arabian welcome of fresh coffee and sweets.
Duly refreshed, enjoy a range of desert activities: ride a camel, dress in Arabic costume for souvenir photos, and have a henna tattoo painted on your hands or feet. If you wish, puff a shisha (water pipe) or hire a quad bike or dune buggy (both at additional cost).
Savor a live barbecue-buffet dinner of appetizers, kebabs, salads, vegetarian dishes and Arabian desserts and fruits, all paired with sodas, water, tea and coffee, or alcoholic drinks (own expense).
As the stars come out, enjoy live belly dancing, fire and whirling dervish-style tanoura shows, all set to rhythmic Arabian music.
Your trip then ends with evening hotel drop-off in Dubai.
