Your Abu Dhabi desert safari: What to do and when to do it

Abu Dhabi's scenic desert accommodates thrill-seeking adventure rides, sandy meanders, and romantic evenings. There really is something for everyone, so long as you can handle the heat!

  • Bash the dunes in a 4x4

    1. Bash the dunes in a 4x4

    Dunebashing is a popular activity at all times, but even the strong Arabic coffee won't invigorate you ahead of a long day sightseeing like an early morning adrenaline rush!

  • Ride a camel

    2. Ride a camel

    Dromedaries (that's the one-hump kind) have played a crucial role in Arabic culture throughout history. Choose the traditional option for a laid-back tour in the afternoon heat.

  • Treat a special someone

    3. Treat a special someone

    Celebrating a romantic occasion? Sounds like a great excuse to splash out on a private tour! Why not enjoy some authentic Bedouin cuisine as you watch the sunset over the dunes?

  • Smokey nights

    4. Smokey nights

    Just because the desert air is beginning to cool, doesn't mean you have to! Warm up with a delicious Arabic barbecue, smoke a shisha, and even watch an outdoor belly-dancing show!

  • Feeling indecisive?

    5. Feeling indecisive?

    Still can't decide on the best time of day to see the desert? Ride out to an overnight camp for an evening of starlit entertainment and a morning of strong coffee and breakfast!

Planning Your Visit

  • How much does it cost?

    Shared Abu Dhabi desert tours and safaris start at around €50 for a basic itinerary. Although food is typically provided, don't assume that it'll be authentically local. Customer reviews are worth checking for more info. Better menus and more varied itineraries can always be found for a higher price, but book online to take advantage of unique deals and discounts.

  • What's the weather like?

    Even in winter, Abu Dhabi temperatures regularly reach highs of around 77°F. In summer they top 100°F, so don't venture into the desert without protecting yourself from the sun. Also, bring water even if bottles are included on your tour. Nighttimes are a little cooler but although the temperature might drop to 50°F in January, the summer nights can still hit the 86°F mark.

Very convenient pass, especially when using the app which works without a connection. Ease of booking for activities where a prior reservation is required (desert safari and cruise). Reservation by WhatsApp to avoid out of bundle.

I was initially thinking about this pass and finally I think it is impossible to do without in Dubai… All the attractions are qualitative and obviously cumulative, it would be much more expensive… Go there with your eyes closed

We had an excellent morning dune bashing, camel ridding, sand boarding, and ATV riding with good friends. Our driver was wonderful! He was very welcoming and skilled behind the wheel.

It was so nice. Everything worked out great and everyone was really so loving to you! Always my pleasure!:)

We had a really nice experience, specially with the kindness of the person that was giving us the tour.
