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 01 hour drive, learn how the present cosmopolis Dubai was originally a village first and the way it transformed to 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 safari ride. Even as other convoys join your gang, you can go for an optional Quad Biking.

Soon the adventures begin with dune bashing in Dubai desert.... Go for a dune drive through the peculiarly shaped red dunes in Lahbab. After 30 to 45 minutes of dune bashing ride, keep your thrills up 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), then you will be lead to a table inside / in front of your tent (Khayma). Unlimited supply of soft drinks, in addition to Arabic clothes (Abaya and Kandora - for ladies and gents) will be ready in your Khayma. Get welcomed with Gahwa & Gaymat (Arabian Coffee & Sweets) and dry dates. Refresh before you move on for next activity - Camel ride.

It’s now time for ‘desert ship’ ride.... Take a ride experience in the group, which can be repeated. Also, watch the sunset from the camp’s dedicated sunset dune. Get these beautiful scenes captured with your cameras.Use your free time to the best in Al Khayma by trying out special Bedouin activities - the must things to do in Dubai Desert - Henna tattooing, Smoking with Shisha, Putting on Abaya / Kandora like a local Arab, Meeting up with a Falcon expert and posing with that majestic bird.

Time for evening entertainers... First, a Tanoura dance will be performed at the centre stage. Soon you will be invited to a barbecue dinner buffet. Have a fulfilling dinner with barbecue dishes. After dinner, you can taste the desserts provided. The next entertaining show will be Belly dance.

Relaxation time.... as all entertainments get over, camp’s lights will be switched off completely to set a typical night desert ambience for you. Relax or refresh yourselves by meditating. Watch the vast sky, the lucky ones can spot a few stars!

"We all enjoyed very well.. Thank you!"

When my sister mentioned that they are planning a desert trip, I also joined them. Omg..it was a lifetime experience. It was really cool being in that sandy land. The activities we did were really funny. My favorite one was dune bashing. I had never done this ride previously. Though I was little scary at first like I was holding tight on the handles, it turned into fun quickly. Al khayma camp was more like reading an old Arabian story. It was more luxurious than ever expected. One put henna tattoo on my hand, how talented artist, no doubt! It was lovely to sit and see how fast they are putting designs on hands. Falcons were amazing. I was excited to hold this bird on my hand. Our guide took crazy snaps. If you are a bird lover, do it definitely. Camel riding was superb; that experience ranks high on my list. I got enthralled by the belly dancing. Not to mention the dinner! Truly an experience not to miss.

"A sand adventure trip!!!"

A highly executed trip to Dubai because every one of us wants to explore this location. The desert safari pictures from different sources increased my level of enthusiasm. Everything was nice and all family members are eager to know about desert life. Everything was special for us and it was the first time experience, for us the most interesting part of this tour was the Al khayma campsite experience. Tasting BBQ and other Arabian dishes are good enough to keep in memory. We got a VIP treatment from the tour authorities thanks for your concern and we will come back to Dubai, no doubt we will opt for you guys!!!

"If you have this opportunity, go for it!"

My husband and I had a beautiful experience in Abu Dhabi desert and it was a life-changing experience. Definitely, I will carry all the memories of the campsite for the rest of my life. I felt that the Bedouin campsite is specially created for us and we discovered all the truth relating to desert life.

"Done what I wanted"

For a long time I was longing for this journey to Dubai, the only one destination I was looking for is desert. Really my intension is to make my day completely an adventurous one and I had done it. Holding a falcon near to my shoulder is interesting but its beaks are still frightening to me.
