Itinerary

Begin with pickup from your central Dubai hotel in time for your scheduled departure, and then soak in the views as you venture into the surrounding desert in a 4WD vehicle

During the journey, listen as your guide charts the region’s history and geology, and enjoy an off-road drive around the dunes.

Head into the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve and arrive at a Bedouin-style camp in the sands where a full range of activities await. Start with an optional camel ride and sandboarding session, see a falcon display, get a henna-painted tattoo, or simply relax by the campfire.

Climb the dunes for views of the desert sunset, and then return to camp for an Arabic-style, 3-course buffet and unlimited sodas (alcoholic beverages available for purchase) under the stars. After eating and enjoying a belly dancing and music show, return to Dubai where your tour ends with a late-evening hotel drop-off.

The Dune drive was sensational

Our driver, Siraj Achakxai was simply terrific. Excellent English and a great conversationalist. Seemed really knowledgeable of the passing attractions and sight seeing. Great sense of humour and made us all laugh. Well done Arabian Adventures.More

Don't pay to your taxi driver for quad bike rides, because they get a commission. You can directly pay to the bike providers at the desert. Camel ride was just 5 minutes, a small round and it was included. Dune bashing was... More
