Our guide Ibrahim was very efficient, knowledgeable and informative about the experience. My 2 young daughters really enjoyed the dune bashing, camel ride and belly dancing. Overall the experience was well worth it and definitely a must do in Abu Dhabi.

The safari is really cool, I was looking forward to it before arriving and it did not disappoint. The dune bashing is super cool, fell in love with the camels and then ended the safari at a beautiful desert camp where we had dinner, drinks and entertainment. Also you can rent quads at the camp, get a camel ride or do some sand boarding. Our tour guide, Rashid, was very nice and very professional. I highly recommend you take this desert safari for a complete experience of the UAE.

This trip exceeded our expectations. Our driver, who was also our guide, helped in every way to give us a really enjoyable evening. The 4x4 drive through the dunes was exciting, the camel farm felt authentic and the food at the bbq was actually delicious. The entertainment was perfect too. I have to say we had been very sceptical beforehand- but the whole evening was excellent. Thank you !
