Full description

Embark on an unforgettable day-to-evening journey across the Dubai Desert. Experience the thrill of driving through red sand dunes and feel the hospitality of a Bedouin desert camp, where you can partake in interactive cultural activities and feast on a delicious BBQ buffet. Drive out of the bustling city and into the peaceful desert aboard a 4x4 Land Cruiser. When you arrive, enjoy a relaxing rest stop and go on an optional quad bike ride while other convoys catch up.  Next, sit back and strap in for a dune bashing ride across the stunning red dunes of the Lehbab Desert. For an extra kick of adrenaline, get the chance to try out sandboarding. 

Enhance your dune 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.  Continue to the Al Khayma Camp and be welcomed with Arabic coffee, sweets, and dates. Say hello to the camp’s resident camels and, if you’d like, go on a 10-minute camel ride across the sand. During your time at the camp, you can smoke Shisha, do Henna painting, and meet the resident falcon expert and his loyal bird.  The buffet barbecue begins at sunset. While you eat, be entertained by traditional dances performed in the center stage. Finish your dinner on a high note with a tasting of various local desserts. As a final treat, the camp will go dark, giving you the opportunity to take in the peaceful ambiance of a desert night before being returned to your accommodation in Dubai.

Just wow. Our Experience without our amazing Guide Rashid would not be so nice as ist was. He made the trip so interesting and comfortable. Rashid is very friendly, funny and a guy with a lot of knowledge. During the trip he gives advices, brings water and makes wonderful pictures. The pictures are very instagramable :) Very proud to have this guide by our side. The food in the camp was very tasty and typical arabian food. Thank you:)))

Our driver for the day was: Roshin. Well ahead of our activity, he got in contact through WhatsApp to inform the pick-up time. He arrived on time and whisked us on to our Trip LandCruiser. Roshin was super helpful with some recommendation for the Bike/Doon-buggy on which was the better value for money deal and experience. The Bike experience was simple and well structured good for beginners. People with more experience should take advantage of the soon-buggy. Thereafter, off we went to the Bashing which I must say was the best part. Over and across dunes we went always entertaining us and making sure we were all okay at all times. Note: there were stops for pics and Roshin was more than willing to help take a lot of pics. Later we arrived at the camp were we had more activities planned such as: Camel ride, Shisha, Inah for the Ladies, a Falcon, dancers and a buffet. Overall fantastic experience and excellent service by the company and Roshin.

Best day ever! Aamerr Abbas had great communication, was on time, and was a pleasure to talk to! He taught me a lot of the areas of Dubai and the cities outside of it. He also took lots of videos and photos that actually came out great so that was a huge plus! If you can request someone, I recommend him! And as far as the tour goes.....it says to wear sandals so you can feel the sand between your toes...........DON'T!! lol wear sneakers!!
