Full description
Take part in an evening of adventure unlike any other on this 5-hour excursion to the desert of Abu Dhabi. Leave the city in the afternoon and head toward the desert to discover the true Abu Dhabi. Enjoy an exciting drive over the sand dunes, something akin to desert off-roading. Then you will visit a camel farm and watch the sunset from the dunes. Continue your journey toward a traditional Arabic camp, where you will have the opportunity to try a host of activities like henna painting and belly dancing. You may also try Shisha, the traditional Arabic smoking pipe, as well as sample the Arabic sweets and coffee significant to Bedouin culture. You will then be served a BBQ dinner under the starlit sky, with live Arabian entertainment to ensure it's a night to remember. Relax as you learn firsthand what Arabic hospitality means, with Arabic coffee and dates served as they have been for centuries, and continue to be served in Emirati homes today.

Received email and call to confirm booking. We were picked up at our hotel very promptly and our driver was very helpful. We enjoyed every minute, I found dune bashing a little scary at times but driver was very reassuring and we had a child on board who was loving it!!

The Dune Bashing was a great experience! The food and the dance as well. Although the camels are part of the nation, I hated the idea of the poor camels, only 2 for loads of people, going around for 30 SECONDS, having to knee everytime to carry and dismount people and you can see the marks in their skin when they don't do immediately what they are told. (there are other Tour providers that join in the camp so this is not tour specific). Our guide did not talk that much.

My partner loved the dune riding. He was sitting at the front of very comfy 4x4. But I felt very car sick, the adrenaline was amazing,driver was very good. Camel ride was one of my bucket list ticks..it was only very short-only 1 circle around.but lovely man who took great photos of us. Food bbw really nice..dressing up in traditional costumes excellent..so all in all really great trip. Thumbs up.
