Full description
Enjoy an evening in the desert, and relax during a delightful BBQ and the entertainment provided by traditional tanoura and belly dancers. You’ll be picked up at your accommodation in Dubai and driven to the deserts on the outskirts of the city. This is the perfect excursion for those who wish to experience the desert at night but aren’t interested in dune driving or dune bashing. A much more relaxed experience, this tour is especially suited for families, including the very young and the elderly. After you arrive at the the camp you can go on a short camel ride, or sit back and have your hand decorated with henna. After dinner you can enjoy Arabic coffee and a shisha. Other optional activities are available as well, such as quad biking and taking photographs with a falcon. Note that the optional activities are not included in the tour price.

We had a great experience at the desert. Our guide Arif was very friendly, gave us many helpfull information and encouraged us to spontaneously book the dune bashing only for 50 dirham per person for which we are very gratefull because it was very nice in the middle of the desert to look at the sunset and take pictures. After that we drove to the camp, rode a camel and looked at the show with many performers. Wonderfull afternoon and evening, thank you very much!

Asif kept in touch to let us know his pick up time & arrived exactly on time. We were brought to the first camp to do the camel ride. We waited at this camp until the rest of the group done dunebashing for approx 1hr. We then met with Asif again to go to the next camp for the food & dancing. It was such an enjoyable experience and we are so glad we did it. Asif was very helpful and kept us updated throughout the day.

Qismat was an amazing tour guide who helped us throughout the experience and made us feel comfortable. It was easy to communicate with him and he also let us know when he was on his way to pick us up. He was also helpful in giving us tips during the experience.
