Full description

After pickup from your hotel in a 4-wheel drive vehicle, head off with your local guide to the desert, just 45 minutes from Dubai. Upon reaching the Lahbab Desert, be welcomed into an air-conditioned tent with refreshments and time to relax.

If you are feeling more adventurous, you can try some optional quad biking and take a ride over the beautiful red dunes of the Dubai desert.

Next, you will hit the desert for a dune bashing experience in a 4-wheel drive vehicle. 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. 

Next, stop at the red dunes desert and enjoy a camel ride in the open desert. Then, relax in air-conditioned comfort as you enjoy soft drinks, water, and Arabic tea or coffee with dates before getting dropped back at your hotel in Dubai.

    Fayyaz was a great tour guide! He was friendly and knowledgeable about areas we drove by in Dubai and made sure to make us all feel comfortable at every activity in the dessert! The safari was a great experience overall! This activity is great for those who like things short and sweet!

    Absolutely amazing!!!!!!! A+++++ Our guide was called Tahseen and he was excellent. I cannot emphasise this enough, from start to finish he couldn’t do enough for us and we have had the best day on our trip. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this trip to anyone and if you get Tahseen as tour guide you’re sure to have a great time. We did camel rides, dune bashing and sand boarding! It was so much fun.

    Our Safari guide, Mohammad Salman, was an extraordinary example of what a desert safari operator should be like, very helpful, courteous, capable and an excellent driver. He made sure we enjoyed every moment of this trip and looked after us really really well. I would highly recommend this experience and if you have a choice, look for Mohammad Salman and rest assured you will have an excellent time and value for your money!
