What to expect

Discover the beautiful red desert landscape on the outskirts of Dubai on an evening safari to an exclusive Bedouin camp. Following a pick-up at your hotel, drive to the center of the desert on an approximately 60-minute journey to your first destination. Upon arrival, you can take a break for photos or ride an optional quad bike(not included) while the vehicle is being prepared to drive over the sand dunes.

Then, drive across the desert red dunes on a thrilling 4WD dune bashing activity. After, stop in the heart of the Dubai desert to try a hand at desert sandboarding, similar to skating or snowboarding, and conquer the dunes. Just stand on the board provided and glide over the soft and smooth sand dunes.

If the timing is right, you can enjoy a panoramic view of the sunset before going to an authentic Arabic VIP camp. At the new exclusive camp, you will be able to enjoy fewer lines and crowds as the camp is organized for a more unique atmosphere to experience the traditional warm Arabic hospitality.

You will be welcomed with Arabic coffee and dates, and learn more about the culture through multiple activities and entertainments. Relax in the beautiful Bedouin camp, and watch traditional Tanoura dance shows, belly dancing and more. Take a ride around the desert sands on the back of a camel. Get a traditional henna painting on your hands, or smoke a shisha pipe to get into the spirit of the Arabians. You are invited to put on traditional costumes for a souvenir photo. You can even get a photo taken with a falcon on your shoulder!

Then, enjoy a gourmet barbecue of Arabian treats. There will be a variety of BBQ cuisines to select like the shawarma, kebabs, salads and all. Feast under a canopy of stars for an unforgettable evening.

The camp lights would be turned off completely to set a typical desert night ambiance for you when the entertainment activities are finally over. Relax or refresh yourselves by meditating. Watch the vast sky, the lucky ones can spot a few stars!

Finally, you will be dropped off to the hotel/ selected location.
