Full description

After pickup from your hotel in a 4x4 Land Cruiser, you’ll head off with your local guide to the desert, just 45 minutes from Dubai. Upon reaching the Lahbab Desert, you’ll have about 20 minutes to relax. For the more adventurous, you can try quad biking, which is an optional activity.  Once your 4x4 vehicle is ready, you will hit the desert for about 30-45 minutes of dune bashing. Feel your stomach leap as the Land Cruiser drives up and down the tall red dunes. Marvel at how the vehicle tackles impossibly steep inclines and the uneven terrain of the sand. 

Enhance your desert adventure with an optional quad bike ride. Select this activity as an add-on at checkout and choose a bike for yourself or to share with one of your travel partners

After dune bashing, you will have a chance to try sandboarding or simply admire the scenery around you. Make sure you take plenty of photos of the scenic desert landscape. 

The next stop is Al Khayma camp, where you’ll be welcomed with traditional Arabic coffee, sweets, and dates. Then, visit a camel farm to learn about how these animals are a key part of traditional Bedouin culture. After enjoying a short camel ride, you will be dropped back at your hotel in Dubai.

In short, this was an unforgettable must-do activity. The trip is very well taken care of from start to finish. All starts with the detailed info a day before pick-up at your chosen location. On the day itself the driver (whose also the event leader) let's you know when he is arriving. After some time driving away from the city you find yourself at a hospitable site to have some middle eastern treats and refreshments. After some minutes the journey continues to the site where you get a good thrill from. After all safety measures, you're assigned a quad bike and you go around the dunes with your instructor. An unforgettable experience and baffling sights. The best instructor holds a short stop for all necessary photoshoots. Special shout-out to our instructor of the day, Mr. Sandy, who is a great photographer. After quad driving around, Sandy takes you on to see you much of dune bashing you can handle, including to sand board off the dunes. Ending, you're dropped off at your location.

Κάθε επισκέπτης του Ντουμπάϊ πρέπει να κάνει σαφάρι! Ήταν από τις πιο υπέροχες μέρες των διακοπών μας! Ο κύριος Abid Wahid ήρθε και μας παρέλαβε από το ξενοδοχείο μας το πρωί, ήταν παρά πολύ ευγενικός μας πρόσεχε σε όλη την διαδρομή , μας έκανε να νιώθουμε άνετα! Κατά την διαδρομή μας εξηγούσε όσα αξιοθέατα περνούσαμε από μπροστά . Όταν φτάσαμε εντυπωσιαστήκαμε παρά πολύ! Όλα ήταν υπέροχα! Καναμε σαφάρι με καμήλες, ήπιαμε καφέ στο camp ,οδηγήσαμε Babi αμάξι στην έρημο το οποίο ήταν πολύ διασκεδαστικό επίσης καναμε snowboarding στην έρημο κάτι που δεν φανταζόμασταν ποτέ! Όλοι όσοι βοήθησαν για να περάσουμε τόσο όμορφα τους ευχαριστούμε πολύ ήταν άψογοι! Αξίζει να σημειωθεί ότι κύριος Abid είναι και πολύ καλός φωτογραφος και μας έβγαζε φωτογραφίες με υπομονή μέχρι να βγει η τέλεια λήψη και μας έδινε και ιδέες ! Ευχαριστούμε πολύ για όλα! Ανυπομονούμε να ξανά έρθουμε!!

I am normally not writing any reviews, but this tour was above our expectations. The desert safari was really fun but most of all our tour guide Nazid Ali made this half day trip very special. He paid great attention that we were always okay and had everything we needed, he was not getting any tired taking photos from us, he was always making us feel that we had all the time we wanted for sand boarding etc. He balanced thrill and safety during the dune bashing perfectly. And at the same time he was really enjoying his job... We can only recommend to go with him, it was a great experience!
