Morning Safari (4 hours)

Escape Dubai city on this morning desert safari tour into the nearby empty desert. Admire breath-taking views of desert landscapes and experience the thrill of dune bashing.

The tour begins with a pick-up from your hotel in 4x4 Land Cruiser. Your expert guide will take you on an adventurous journey into Dubai’s most remote desert area known as ‘Lahbab’ - located approximately 50 kilometres away from main Dubai city. Your driver will take you off-road and into the red dunes to enjoy 30 minutes of an adrenaline rush ride as you slide across from one dune to another in a 4x4 vehicle. Afterwards, the guide will stop for 15 minutes on the highest dune for a picture-stop. Admire beautiful 360 views of the desert landscape. Try your hands on sandboarding a fast becoming popular activity in the desert (no experience is required). After you will make your way to the camels and you can enjoy a short ride before heading back to your hotel.

Afternoon safari with falcon experience (6 hours)

This afternoon 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. You will be picked up from your hotel in a 4x4 Land Cruiser and head to Lahbab to enjoy 20 minutes of an adrenaline rush ride as you slide across from one dune to another. 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, enjoy a Shisha pipe, rent an 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.

You'll enjoy a scrumptious barbecue dinner of dishes such as kebabs, hummus and salads with plenty of drink options.
