Spend an evening at the one and only Al Khayma Desert Camp to experience the bygone Bedouin life. Revisit those good old days with Shisha smoking, Henna tattooing, barbecue lunch/dinner, local Tanoura as well as Belly dance shows.
This Dubai desert safari tour will familiarize you how fascinating was the old desert life!
Our Safari Captain will pick you up, from the hotel or selected location, in a 4 wheel drive Land Cruiser. You will then be taken to the Lahbab desert. In that one hour drive, learn how the present cosmopolis Dubai was originally a village first and the way it transformed into a trendsetting city. As you arrive at Lahbab desert, take an initial break at the rest area for about 20-25 minutes. There you can take rest, avail bathroom/toilet facilities, meanwhile, your land cruiser gets its tyre pressures adjusted for the desert safari. Even as other convoys join your gang, you can go for an optional Quad Biking.
Soon the adventures begin with dune bashing at Dubai desert. Go for a dune drive through the peculiarly shaped red dunes at Lahbab. After 30 to 45 minutes of dune bashing drive, keep your thrills alive with sand-surfing along the dunes (sandboarding). Afterwards, we will proceed to Al Khayma desert camp.
At the Al Khayma camp, you can see Camels in a group - ready for a ride. As you enter in the camp, our safari captain will show you the slots (where main camp activities take place) and you will be lead to a table inside/in front of your tent (Khayma). There will be an unlimited supply of soft drinks in your tent where you can try out Arab attires (Abaya and Kandora - for ladies and gents). Get welcomed with Gahwa, Gaymat (Arabian coffee & sweets) and dry dates. Refresh yourselves before you move on for the next activity- Camel ride.
It’s now time for a ride atop ‘Ship of the desert’. You can experience the camel ride in a group which can be repeated. Also, watch the sunset from the camp’s dedicated sunset dune. Get these beautiful scenes captured with your cameras. You can use the free time to explore the Al Khayma camp with a lot of Bedouin activities including the must-do activities of Dubai desert- Henna tattooing, Shisha smoking, trying out Arab attires Abaya/ Kandora as of a local Arab citizen, meeting up with a Falcon expert and posing with that majestic bird.
Now it’s time for some evening entertainers! The Tanoura dance will be performed at the center stage initially. Soon you will be invited to a barbecue dinner buffet. You are free to taste the desserts provided after dinner with barbecue dishes. Belly dance would be the very next entertainment show.
Rest is the relaxation time for you. The camp lights would be turned off completely to set a typical desert night ambience 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.
Other religious holidays as per UAE law i.e. 3rd April, 10 & 31st Aug, 9th Nov, etc there will not be any entertainment activities in the camps as its strictly not permitted by UAE law.

Dubai this landscape always fascinated me and I’m fond of this landscape very much. My visit was basically meant for exploring the Dubai desert sands and my desire for this ended up with complete satisfaction. The memories of my experience from Al Khayma desert camp was so nice to remember. I never felt that I was a foreigner came to another land for experiencing the cultural difference. Thank you very much to the team of OceanAir travels for giving me this kind of safari trip to Dubai.
