Itinerary
Begin your desert adventure with convenient pickup at your Dubai hotel. Focus on the scenery as your guide drives the rugged 4x4 out to the desert.

First, you’ll visit a camel farm to learn about the animal’s historic use in the region, and you’ll also get to ride one.

Next, head to a desert campsite for a sandboarding adventure. With your guide’s instruction, learn how to maneuver down the dunes. You can even race your friends.

Arrive at a desert camp as the sun sinks toward the horizon. Get some henna painting done and watch a folk-dance show. Dinner includes shawarma or barbecue, accompanied by traditional Arabian dishes. Before you head back to your drop-off point, sample shisha (using a traditional water pipe) while watching a belly-dance performance. Please note, an upgrade gets you an exclusive dinner table, a fruit basket, and a bottle of sparkling wine.
