Full description
Escape the urban sprawl of Dubai on a 6-hour adventure into the desert. Driving across the dunes in 4WD Land Cruisers, your ultimate destination will be a traditional Arabic Bedouin camp. The tour departs in the afternoon, heading across the desert of Dubai with several photo-stops during an exciting dune drive to your first destination, a camel farm. Continue across the desert, pausing to watch the beautiful sunset, before reaching the campsite where you will have the opportunity to take a camel ride. Get a henna painting on your hands or feet. Having worked up an appetite, relax over a delicious barbecue dinner and try the famous Arabic shisha water pipe. Before you return to Dubai or Sharjah, you will get one final treat as you watch a belly dance performance around the campfire by starlight.

    Fantastic fun and exciting

    It was fantastic. Our guide picked us up right on time. He looked after us the whole time making sure we knew what was happening. He was an amazing 4WD driver and made the dune bashing so much fun and exciting. The buffet and night entertainment was very good. The camel ride was more a pony walk around. Overall a great night.

    Sun, sand and action..

    Nice way to get first touch to real desert. ATV driving was fun, even if ATV:s were not so powerful, but you could get that on the air after all. Desert driving was fun! Luckily we had enough agressive driver, who had more improvised driving lines than other ones. Driving was just long enough. No one was feeling bad. But after break little trip could have been great.. Very good car. Big enough for six passangers. In the camp was immediately kind of bread available plus some little buns, which was very good. Bread was bit dry, but taste very good. Coke would have been right soft drink with the bread. Now was only cold water and coffee available (selfservice). Food was good, and it was enough. Bellydance was nice, and acrobat-show just perfect. Sisha, henna-tattoo, etc ok. Loudspeakers could be much futher away from the dining tables.. Way back home went fine, even if our driver was too much interested my female colleague, who was left to her hotel last.. Not so professional..

    Incredible experience, highly recommended

    Great experiance, we learned a lot about the history and development of the UAE thanks to the driver who was our gude, not only a driver. We are very pleased with Mr. Raja Iftikhar Ahmed and we would recommend him to our friends and to everybody. The dune bushing was incredible experience. The desert camp was very nice. The food was not very tasry but there was a lot of choice. The dancing show in the camp was interesting.
