Dubai Desert Safari, Including BBQ and Al Hibab Red Dune Bashing

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Dubai’s desert isn’t all the same: Some areas offer bigger dunes than others. This tour takes you to the Al Hibab region’s high red dunes, giving your dune bash and expedition an extra edge. Ride a 4WD vehicle over steep inclines and then visit a Bedouin-style camp to enjoy a camel ride, henna art, optional quad biking (additional cost), and more, all topped with a sunset barbecue buffet dinner.
  • Experience Dubai’s higher red dunes on a desert-dune adventure
  • Enjoy a 4WD bash in Al Hibab, home to some of the UAE’s biggest red dunes
  • Camel ride, henna art, and quad riding (additional cost) at desert camp
  • Complete experience: includes barbecue dinner, live shows, and return transfers
What to Expect
Leave your Dubai hotel or other central location of your choice by air-conditioned vehicle, and make the journey to the Al Hibab region of the desert. Marvel at the red dunes and head off road by 4WD vehicle for a dune bash. Enjoy the thrill as your driver speeds up the steep inclines, before pausing and letting your vehicle drop back down. After the bash, continue across the sands to a Bedouin-inspired desert camp. After an Arabic coffee and short camel ride, take your pick from the activities on offer. Get a henna tattoo and falconry souvenir photo, admire sand art, puff on a Arabic water pipe (shisha), or enjoy a quad bike ride (additional cost). Then, savor a barbecue buffet dinner and enjoy live entertainment in the shape of belly dancing and Whirling Dervish (tanoura) shows. Your experience then finishes with a hotel drop-off.
