Crack the must-try desert activities in Abu Dhabi with ease on this morning tour. Rather than brave the afternoon heat, take advantage of the morning’s cooler climes and ride a 4WD deep into an area of dunes you couldn’t access independently. Then, take a chauffeured dune bash, try sand boarding, and experience a Bedouin-style camel ride. Upgrade to a private tour option—in your own 4WD—if you wish.

    Abu Dhabi
    Stop: 4 hours
    Get ready for a 4-hours desert safari starting with morning pick-up at your hotel. A 45-minute drive takes you to the heart of the desert outside Abu Dhabi. Explore the desert in a 4x4 Land Cruiser, bashing the huge dunes. The fun continues with a chance to try out sandboarding. Follow the instructions and glide over the dunes as you see how simple it really is. During the safari there will be plenty of opportunity to pose for some photos in the desert. Your friendly driver will help you with that. This special morning safari concludes with a short camel ride before the transfer back to the pick-up point

Everything went well from pick up to drop off with our guide Faicel. The desert is about 1hour drive from city centre. We first stopped at a camel farm where you can feed the animals. Then we went to the desert and enjoyed dune bashing. It was really fun and completely safe.

It was very great and super organized. We had time to visit the camel farm and ride on a camel and also see such a cute little goat. We had a lot of fun. Our tour guide Rafeek was really friendly and helpful. Would book this tour again any time :-)
