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 4-wheel drive vehicle. When you arrive, enjoy a relaxing rest stop and go on an optional quad bike ride.  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. 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 ambience of a desert night before being returned to your accommodation in Dubai.

    Our tour guide was really good, he was super friendly and helpful, he took our photos many times. Also food was really tasty, I like the desserts, sisha and henna. My only recommendation would be about the show, for me was a bit boring so would be more interesting but overall was really good one

    Most was very good. It's a shame that the guide had a major negative impact on the whole thing. He hardly communicated and everything came naturally to him. Where to get the equipment, where to go, what to do. Even in the camp, where it was evident how many guides took care of their group, it was not the case with us. Finally he says he will let us out on a side street because there is a traffic jam in front of the hotel and the hotel is next door. However, he confused us as a couple with another couple and we had to walk 15 minutes to reach our hotel.

    Extremely great experience, which is extremely positive in the price-performance ratio of many other attractions in Dubai. Our guide NIKI was very accommodating, regularly asked how we were and provided us with cold water throughout the journey. Confident thin rider and excellent photographer, the camera in his hands gives everyone a dreamy memory of the dessert. Fantastic food at the camp, with privacy and great extras like coffee or tea, henna, camel rides and shisha. Conclusion: before you pay overpriced entrance fees for viewing platforms, treat yourself to this experience. Thanks Niki for your time
