A dune buggy safari offers a new dimension to off-road exploring. Ride one of the twin-seater dune buggies and set off on this unique adventure around the Dubai desert. Explore the region’s majestic sand dunes, climbing up and over peaks and valleys and taking in the amazing scenery. Your guide will show you the best routes to take and will make sure you ride at a pace that you find comfortable.

    We travelled to the desert with Nasir for a buggy private tour and loved it! We took the evening tour in order to see views of the sun setting and then went for the bbq dinner. Great all in all experience, book outside the weekend if possible to avoid big groups :)

    The excursion was perfect, the activities offered as well as the dinner with shows really lived up to our expectations! Special mention for our guide Niaz who was really brilliant, caring and great advice. I highly recommend this excursion and especially this guide which will make you enjoy your stay in Dubai in the most beautiful way. Nicolas and Lea

    Nasir was a very nice guide and a great photographer. We really have nice images from the whole family thanks to him. He picked us up directly from the hotel in time and took us to the camp where we got our dune buggies . They were in a very good condition. One hour driving through the dunes, two people per buggy, and if somebody got stuck, they were rescued immediately. After that we were brought to the camp where we had our barbecue dinner. We had booked the VIP table which means that food is served instead of crowding at the buffet. Nice belly dance show, food was good. There is also an option for sitting on a camel for photographs. They only thing we disliked a little bit was that the announcement of the show was a bit American, whereas we think that everybody who books this tour wants to experience something totally traditional.
