Full description
Your 4-5 hours morning safari begins when you’re picked up at your hotel in a 4x4 Land Cruiser and head off with your local guide to the desert, just a 45 minute ride from Dubai.

Reaching Lahbab Red Dunes desert, you will get 20–25 minutes to relax. Restroom and toilet facilities are available there. Try quad biking, which is an optional addition. Once your 4x4 vehicle is ready, you will be taken across the desert. 

Be ready for a 35–45 minutes dune bashing. The time will be based on your selected tour option. Feel the car bounce around driving up and down the red dunes in the Land Cruiser to get the adrenaline flowing. Try sandboarding, a popular desert activity, once the drive is over. Remember to take plenty of photos before heading to the Al Khayma camp.

At the camp, get welcome by the Arabian hospitality with a traditional Arabic coffee, sweets (Gawa, Gaymat) and dates. Relax for sometime before a short camel ride (which can be repeated) in the nearby area. On return to the camp, enjoy a perfect conclusion with a light brunch (please note that brunch is not automatically included with the tour, so you will need to select the brunch option). Once you've finished your tour, you will be taken back to your hotel.
