What you can expect

Enjoy your day at the tantalising Dubai desert exploring the amazing cultures and thrill-seeking desert adventures.

You will be picked up from your hotel or preferred location by your Safari Captain in an air-conditioned modern vehicle. Leave the city limits and head out to the dunes with your knowledgeable Safari Captain. Upon arrival, enjoy a short break for 20 minutes to use the toilets or you can go for an optional quad biking.

Thereafter, enjoy dune bashing in a powerful 4x4 Land Cruiser. Your Safari Captain takes you on an exhilarating off-road drive through the desert. Enjoy the thrill when the vehicle climbs up and down the steep and silky smooth dunes. Followed by this, you can try a fun-filled dessert sport, sandboarding.

As afternoon stretches towards evening, you will be taken to Al Khayma desert camp for having a fabulous cultural evening. Enjoy the welcome procedures with Gahwa(Arabic coffee/dates), Gaymat(sweets) and dates. Next will be a short camel ride around the camp premises. Hop on a camel and enjoy the evening desert vibes. Upon returning to the camp, witness a mesmerising sunset view from the top dunes.

After getting back to the camp, get your hands painted with henna tattoos and sit back and puff the shisha. Try on traditional Arab attire and pose with a falcon for once-in-a-lifetime photographs. Then watch the beautiful Tanoura & Ladies Khaliji Dance show on stage and stimulate your taste buds with a grand feast on a sumptuous BBQ dinner.

Finally, we will turn off all the lights for creating the authentic feel of the desert night. Intake the calmness of the vast desert terrains and engage in gazing at the sky.

In the end, you will be taken back to your hotel or selected destination by your Safari Captain.
