2 travellers
Take a 4x4 adventure across the sands on an afternoon and evening safari, where you’ll catch a spectacular desert sunset and enjoy dinner around a campfire. Along the way, go on a camel ride, experience the adrenaline of sandboarding and get a henna tattoo. A barbecue dinner and belly dancing complete your evening under Abu Dhabi’s desert stars.
  • Experience the fun and traditions of the desert in a tour from Abu Dhabi
  • Enjoy a dune bash, camel ride, and sandboarding
  • Includes belly dancing show and barbecue desert dinner to cap your evening
  • Central pickup and drop-off provided for your ease and comfort
What to Expect
Depart your Abu Dhabi hotel in a climate-controlled 4WD vehicle and cruise into the desert outside the city. Along the way, listen as your driver-guide shares insights into desert culture and the Bedouin peoples who have made their home here for centuries. Visit a camel farm and hop on one of these hardy animals for a ride. Next, increase the pace by sandboarding on the dunes. Surf the shifting sands on a provided board and then continue the sporting action with a 4WD dune bash. Afterward, stop for photos of the desert sunset, choose to get a henna tattoo, and settle down for dinner at a tented, torchlit camp. As darkness falls, feast on a barbecue buffet meal and watch a belly dancing show by the campfire before your outing finishes with a hotel drop-off. Please note: During Ramadan, alcoholic drinks and live entertainment will not be available on this tour.
