What to expect

Your six-hour desert safari tour will take you to Dubai’s most remote desert area known as ‘Lahbab’ located approximately 50 kilometres from city. Lahbab has a unique desert landscape mainly due to its silky red color sand and its towering dune heights which provide picture-perfect views of the desert surrounding. This tour is perfect for adventure seekers, families, couples and solo travelers who are looking for a unique tour which combines fun, adventure, nature and culture at the same time.

Your tour will begin with a pick-up from your hotel in a 4x4 Land Cruiser, once picking up all the guests (all vehicles can accommodate up to six people) you will drive towards Lahbab. The drive will take almost 45 minutes to get to Lahbab. In the meantime, you can enjoy interesting views of Dubai from the car window as you leave the urban city with tall skyscrapers and shopping malls and drive through old dusty towns on the outskirts of Dubai to a completely isolated desert. Don't be shy- ask your driver a question and they will happily explain more about Dubai’s history as your drive along.

After reaching Lahbab, your driver will take a short stop to inflate vehicle tires to better suit driving condition on desert sand. Once ready, your driver will take you off-road and into the red dunes! Enjoy 20 minutes of an adrenaline rush ride as you slide across from one dune to another. The journey will take you deeper into the desert to get the best scenic views possible. Afterward, the guide will stop on the highest dune near to sunset time for a picture-stop. Admire beautiful 360 views of the desert landscape as the sun slowly sets down.

Your tour continues towards the bedouin-style camp, hidden in the middle of the desert, where there are many fun and exciting activities for everyone to enjoy. Hop on a camel and take a short ride, feel bubbly with a Shisha pipe, get more adrenaline rush by renting on-site quad bikes (optional), get your hands painted by Henna tattoo artists, dress up and take pictures in traditional Arabic costumes and even look for our souvenir stand to find unique and exotic trinkets to buy. In the camp you will be able to experience an Arabian falcon and are welcomed to take a photo with this majestic bird.

As dusk falls, enjoy a scrumptious barbecue dinner of dishes such as kebabs, hummus and salads with plenty of drink options. While you eat, enjoy a colorful belly dancing show and Tanoura performance, where fast-spinning dancers whirl across the stage along with a captivating fire dance show. Finally, after the last show, you will return to Dubai with your driver, where your experience concludes with a hotel drop-off.
