  • Feel the adrenaline on a dune-bashing experience in a 4-wheel drive vehicle

Full description

After pickup from your hotel in a 4-wheel drive vehicle, you’ll head off with your local guide to the desert, just 45 minutes from Dubai. Upon reaching the Lahbab Desert, you’ll have some time to relax. For the more adventurous, you can try quad biking, which is an optional activity.  Once your vehicle is ready, you will hit the desert for a dune bashing ride. Feel your stomach leap as you ride up and down the tall red dunes. Marvel at how the vehicle tackles impossibly steep inclines and the uneven terrain of the sand. 

After dune bashing, you will have a chance to try sandboarding or simply admire the scenery around you. Make sure you take plenty of photos of the scenic desert landscape. 

The next stop is Al Khayma camp, where you’ll be welcomed with traditional Arabic coffee, sweets, and dates. Then, visit a camel farm to learn about how these animals are a key part of traditional Bedouin culture. After enjoying a short camel ride, you will be dropped back at your hotel in Dubai.

    WOW!!! That was amazing! From the quad, the camel ride, the sandboarding to the 4x4 in the dunes… everything was PERFECT! We had so much fun and had the best desert experience thanks to Yaar, our guide. Yaar THANK YOU for this memorable experience in the desert of Dubai!

    We had a very good experience and our guide Arafa is excellent! He is a very good guide and takes fantastic photos. He is very accomodating to us. He arrives earlier than the expected meet up time so we didn’t leave late. Overall, the experience is awesome and highly recommended!
