Dubai Desert Safari with BBQ Dinner
Dubai’s desert is a must-see, but a self-guided trip isn’t enough to fully grasp its beauty and culture. This tour lets you experience the desert every which way: on a dune drive, camel, and sandboard. Plus, you'll enjoy a barbecue dinner at a traditional-style camp. The attractions list also includes souvenir photos, henna art, fire shows, and more, so you get an unadulterated desert experience—both traditional and modern.
What to Expect
Begin with pickup from your central Dubai hotel, and drink in the views as you trace the emirate's tarmac roads into the desert.

After a stop for photos of the scenery and falcons, head off road for a dune bash. With a driver-guide, zip across the slopes, opting to tackle higher dunes if you’re feeling adventurous.

Next, take photos of a desert sunset before traveling to a Bedouin-style camp hidden in the sands. Then, after snacking on coffee and dates, throw yourself into the activities on offer. Ride a camel, dress in Emirati robes for souvenir photos, try sandboarding, puff a shisha (Arabic water pipe), and get a henna tattoo—the choice is yours.

Later, watch belly dancing, fire, and tanoura (whirling dervish) shows before finishing with a barbecue-buffet dinner under the stars. Return to Dubai, where your tour ends at the original departure point.

The general seating for the evening meal and entertainment is on the floor on cushions but there are some tents at the side with proper chairs in but I’m unsure if this is an extra charge?

A short camel ride is included in the price.. you may pay for a longer one.. but you really do not need to... the itinerary is packed and well spaced out with lots of new experiences.. the desert ride, the shows, food etc..
