Riding in a luxury 4-Wheel Drive vehicle, experience the wild majesty of the Arabian Desert as you enjoy the thrill of ‘dune bashing’ – an exciting rollercoaster-of-a-drive over giant sand dunes.
Accompanied by an experienced dune driver, race up giant sand dunes and plunge over blind precipices, provoking shrieks and laughter in equal measure! At sunset, head to the largest dune to watch the full glory of a desert sunset before continuing to a Bedouin Campsite nestled deep in the desert.
On arrival at the Bedouin Campsite there is the chance to ride a camel, try sand surfing or smoke aromatic Shisha (water pipe), as your delicious barbecue dinner is prepared on open fires. Then indulge in a delicious 3-course Arabic feast under a canopy of stars accompanied by an authentic belly dancer and the soft tones of Arabian folk music.
After dinner, you can sit around the open camp fires, smoke more of the hubbly bubbly and chat to the local ‘Bedouin’ people about their way of life and how it has changed since the massive development in Dubai.
After a magical night camping in a Bedouin tent in the silence of the desert, wake up to a desert sunrise and enjoy a breakfast before returning to Dubai at around 9.30am.
There is no minimum people required for this package, even 1 person can do this. The best is if you have a group of 6 people in which you get a complete car for your group and don’t have to share it with other guests. Please note as the desert safari is an adventure activity we do not recommend children below 3 years, pregnant women and older adults especially with back problems. But we can arrange private car that can take you directly to the camp so that you may enjoy other activities in the camp. We also have car seats for children.
Our drivers are professional and licensed drivers and are trained in first aid. Our cars are fitted with roll cage to protect the occupants from being injured in an accident, particularly in the event of a roll-over in the desert which is very rare. Plus there are seat belts for every passenger. We use 4×4 Land Cruisers for our safari. Also from the moment you are in our cars you are insured. All our cars and the passengers are covered under insurance.
One must get a camera when going to a desert safari in Dubai as the views are breath-taking and awesome. Also one should wear comfortable clothes and avoid jewelry or expensive watch and cell phones as there is no signal at the camps. Do try the Arabic coffee at the camp and shake your belly with our belly dancer!
A very popular part of the desert safari. You get to ski from the highest dunes on a ski board, everyone can do it, as if you fall the soft sand is there to catch you. A thrilling experience and one that everyone should do a desert safari. We recommend you to book the red dune safari to enjoy sand-skiing the best.
QUAD BIKES/DUNE BUGGIES
We offer two types of quad bikes for both adults and children. Larger quad bikes are 350cc and more powerful and smaller ones are 150cc and recommended for children. Quad bikes can be driven in a designated area outside the camp and cannot be taken into the desert for safety reasons.
Dune buggies on the other hand can seat two people and can be taken into the desert. Our instructor will lead the convoy and you will be provided with safety gear and instructions before the ride. This option is recommended for the thrill-seekers.
