Abu Dhabi's scenic desert accommodates thrill-seeking adventure rides, sandy meanders, and romantic evenings. There really is something for everyone, so long as you can handle the heat!
Dunebashing is a popular activity at all times, but even the strong Arabic coffee won't invigorate you ahead of a long day sightseeing like an early morning adrenaline rush!
Dromedaries (that's the one-hump kind) have played a crucial role in Arabic culture throughout history. Choose the traditional option for a laid-back tour in the afternoon heat.
Celebrating a romantic occasion? Sounds like a great excuse to splash out on a private tour! Why not enjoy some authentic Bedouin cuisine as you watch the sunset over the dunes?
Just because the desert air is beginning to cool, doesn't mean you have to! Warm up with a delicious Arabic barbecue, smoke a shisha, and even watch an outdoor belly-dancing show!
Still can't decide on the best time of day to see the desert? Ride out to an overnight camp for an evening of starlit entertainment and a morning of strong coffee and breakfast!
Shared Abu Dhabi desert tours and safaris start at around €50 for a basic itinerary. Although food is typically provided, don't assume that it'll be authentically local. Customer reviews are worth checking for more info. Better menus and more varied itineraries can always be found for a higher price, but book online to take advantage of unique deals and discounts.
Even in winter, Abu Dhabi temperatures regularly reach highs of around 77°F. In summer they top 100°F, so don't venture into the desert without protecting yourself from the sun. Also, bring water even if bottles are included on your tour. Nighttimes are a little cooler but although the temperature might drop to 50°F in January, the summer nights can still hit the 86°F mark.

What People Are Saying About Abu Dhabi
Communication about time of pick up was good and accurate. The off road desert safari in 4 x4 was action packed, just out of this world. Went to camp in the desert to get a chance to ride camels, eat and drink, sand boarding and other activities. Only down side was some of the entertainment and alcoholic drinks were taken off the schedule due to Ramadan, we were not told about this. Apart from that, well worth it.
We were picked up by a car which had room for 6 people. So the atmosphere was really familiar and everyone was nice. The guide listened to our wishes and was very attentional. We had a lot of time to take photos in the desert and on a camel farm. The Ride over the dunes was like a rollercoaster. At the Camp we had a lot time to relax and observe the sunset in the desert. We also got nice dinner and an atmospheric evening. Worth every penny. Thanks a lot.
A great time! Recommend everyone do this at some time. So much fun! Our guide was awesome! Great dune bashing fun, bbq dinner and all the amenities.
My children and I really enjoyed the safari. The dune bashing was awesome it felt like roller coasting rides. Seeing the camels up close was good. The camp where we had our meal was very nice. The food and the belly dancer was excellent. I would highly recommend this tour.
Great fun overall - dune bashing in the 4WD (if you get motion sickness or had a big night before, be prepared!), photos with Camels at the Camel Farm (very friendly), and Camel rides at the camp (not as uncomfortable as you might think)!
