Full description

Embark on an unforgettable day-to-evening journey across the Dubai Desert. Experience the thrill of driving through red sand dunes and feel the hospitality of a Bedouin desert camp, where you can partake in interactive cultural activities and feast on a delicious BBQ buffet. Drive out of the bustling city and into the peaceful desert aboard a 4-wheel drive vehicle. When you arrive, enjoy a relaxing rest stop and go on an optional quad bike ride.  Next, sit back and strap in for a dune bashing ride across the stunning red dunes of the Lehbab Desert. For an extra kick of adrenaline, get the chance to try out sandboarding. Continue to the Al Khayma Camp and be welcomed with Arabic coffee, sweets, and dates. Say hello to the camp’s resident camels and, if you’d like, go on a 10-minute camel ride across the sand. During your time at the camp, you can smoke Shisha, do Henna painting, and meet the resident falcon expert and his loyal bird.  The buffet barbecue begins at sunset. While you eat, be entertained by traditional dances performed in the center stage. Finish your dinner on a high note with a tasting of various local desserts. As a final treat, the camp will go dark, giving you the opportunity to take in the peaceful ambience of a desert night before being returned to your accommodation in Dubai.

    Fantastic day, made all the better and more comfortable by our guide Abid Wahid, who couldn’t do enough to keep us happy. He’s also a great photographer! Great communication from the start, turned up exactly on time, and made the whole experience a pleasure. The excursion itself is great value for money, with lots to do before you even get to camp. Once there the food was incredible and endless, before sitting down for the entertainment which was vibrant and really got the crowd going. Highly recommended trip!

    Heard mixed reviews about the desert safari tours in Dubai. Thankfully people mentioned Ocean Air to me and I went for it. OceanAir is great at communicating all you need to know, & answering questions you may have. Confirms booking, heads up with things you need to know the day before including pick up location and time. The day of,guide messages you before they head your way. Everything is perfectly planned, and with all these open communication lines you’ll know if anything is running behind. Mansoor Manz was our great tour guide for the day! He was great at sharing lots of fun facts of our scenery & of the country while on the car ride. Making sure everyone is included as I’m a solo traveler. Took every opportunity to show us a little more, or make sure we understood everything. Hes a great photographer to make sure you go home with great memories. Sanddunes were cool & he made sure everyone was having fun&safe. At camp made sure we got to do everything. Thank you for a great day!
