Full description
Your exciting Abu Dhabi off-road desert excursion begins at the time of your pickup in the morning. Head to the desert in an air-conditioned 4x4 Land Cruiser jeep and ride on the sand dunes. Admire the golden sand and desert scenes under the hot sun. Watch the magnificent sand patterns and ride over the dunes to explore the hidden beauty of the harsh Abu Dhabi desert.

For those who prefer more adrenaline-rushing adventures, try sand board surfing. Climb the golden sand dunes and feel the silky sand and dry desert breeze as you go down the dunes. Dress up in traditional Arabic attire for a photo-op with a falcon or sit with a hot cup of Arabic coffee.

Finish your excursion with a ride on a camel. Gaze at the enchanting views of the Abu Dhabi desert and experience the rhythmic sway of the camel ride. Relax and look for the horizon to capture the beautiful view of where the desert and sky meet.

This tour was awesome. I liked the fact that it was a small group - 6 people and the driver. Our driver Munir Ahmed was right on time. He was a very good driver, polite and professional. I loved everything about this tour. The dune bashing, camel ride, getting dressed up in traditional clothing, the falcon experience.... All other staff we met were also very polite and friendly. They were very helpful with taking pictures too and the pictures turned out amazing. Great value for money. This tour was my highlight in Abu Dhabi.

Everything worked smoothly, especially the communication about the pickup location and time via WhatsApp. We were the only two guests that day and our driver Ameer responded very well to our requests, was very friendly and took great pictures. It was also important to his colleagues that we enjoyed the trip and they took great care of us. The desert is very beautiful, as is the small camp with the falcons and the camels. Dunebashing, sandboarding and camel riding was a lot of fun.

A great experience! Definitely recommendable! Saleem picked us up at the cruise ship terminal, knew a lot to tell and gave us a great trip - dune bashing, camel farm, camel ride, sand boarding and a stop in the bed tent with coffee / tea and dates! Everything was individual and really fun!
