This overnight desert safari in Dubai is for those who want to ‘live’ a desert life in real! Try some amusements like Dune bashing, Sandboarding and Camel caravan and indulge in a ravishing BBQ dinner buffet and pastime activities like Smoking Shisha, Henna, Arab makeover and Falcon along with some mesmerising dance performances, and above all, stay overnight in a typical Bedouin style setting and wake up in the morning to a sunrise camel trek.
We will first pick you from your hotel or selected location in a comfortable 4WD Land Cruiser and will journey to the Lahbab desert.
A short break... Once at the desert, we will take 20 minutes of a break before safari starts. You can relax there availing bathroom/toilet facilities or opting a Quad bike ride, while we prepare our vehicle for the off-road dune drive.
Desert adventure time... Soon we go for a dune bashing ride that lasts 30-45 minutes. You can feel that peculiar excitement as your Land Cruiser climbs up and slides down the sand dunes. Then try the adventure sport - desert Dubai sandboarding. Stand on the wooden board provided, balance yourself and glide over the desert sands.
Welcome to Al Khayma... Next, we will head to Al Khayma - a Bedouin type campsite. We will lead you to your own tent (Khayma) inside the camp. Get seated there, tasting Qahwa (Arabic coffee), Gaymat (sweets), Dates, as the sign of welcome.
Time for ‘desert ship ride’... Go for a Camel ride around the camp premises and depending on the time, and own luck, view the desert sunset from a high dune.
Free at leisure... Back at Al Khayma Camp, spend your time trying Shisha smoking, Henna painting. Put on local Arabian cloth and pose for photos with Falcon.
Entertainment begins... At the camp center stage, a Tanoura dance will be performed first. You will soon be invited to a lavish buffet dinner full of Barbecue dishes. At the stage, the Belly dance will keep you entertained.
Night in the desert...The pleasure of desert activities doesn’t end here, for you are going to experience the desert life in full with an overnight stay in the camp. We will take you on Camel ride near to the camp area where a fire is arranged for you. We will then give a demonstration session on how to make Arabic coffee/tea. Relax in the night sitting by the campfire, enjoying the silence of the desert and the dark sky above. Our guide will add fun with interesting desert stories. When it’s time for sleep, we will return to the camp. Get back to your tent for a good sleep with the provided Bedouin-style bed, pillow and blanket.
A new day starts... Wake up 15 minutes prior to sunrise for witnessing the sunrise. Our guide will take you to the desert on a Camel caravan, that is waiting outside the camp. Go for about 10-15 minutes of Camel trekking and capture the beautiful view of the sunrise over sand dunes.
Breakfast and farewell... Have a freshly cooked Arabian breakfast by 7:30 - 8:00 am, at Al Khayma after Camel trekking - a perfect conclusion for your overnight desert safari in Dubai! Later we will drop you back at your hotel or selected location.

I had an amazing time in Dubai Desert and the tour activities exceeded my expectations. The adventurous Dubai Desert Activities were so thrilling but the part that I enjoyed the most was the performances. Being a dancer myself, I was mesmerized by the Belly Dance in Dubai Desert Safari and Tanoura Dance in Dubai. Many thanks to the guide, performers, and other staff of OceanAir Travels.

When I read the itinerary of this particular tour, I was pretty sure that all these activities cannot be done within the stipulated time. But, OceanAir Travels proved me wrong. All the activities promised in the itinerary were ticked-off, without rushing us at any point. The Dubai Camel Trek, Dubai Dune Bashing, and all other Dubai Desert Activities were excellent and entertaining.

How much can you enjoy in a desert? I was not at all excited about taking a Desert Safari but I signed up for this because of my friend. I started this trip with the preconceived notion that this was going to suck big time. Having said this, I should confess that this tour exceeded my expectations and Dubai Desert Activities blew my mind. This experience was so much exhilaration that I urge you to take it and find out yourselves how great this is.

I have been looking through tour packages and tour company websites to find the perfect Dubai Dune Bashing and Sandboarding Safari for my honeymoon. Most of these packages that I found were the same as every other desert safari package and they were expensive. Then I found out about this tour package through TripAdvisor. Seeing the package and reading the rave reviews, I decided to take this tour. I should say that this was such an incredible and unique Safari experience. I had a great time with my wife.
