Full description

Have a thrilling and fun experience in the remote desert area known as Lahbab. Choose between a 4-hour tour option which includes dune bashing, sand-boarding, and a camel ride, or the 7-hour tour option which adds on a BBQ dinner, and all desert camp activities. Your safari guide will pick you up from your hotel in a 4WD vehicle. Your tour starts with a 50-minute drive into the desert. Enjoy stunning views of Dubai from the car window. The guide will answer any of your questions while you learn more about Dubai’s history. Your first stop will be at the desert rest area. Take a 25-minute break as the convoy catches up. While you wait, your safari guide will air down the tires of the vehicle to ensure better driving conditions. You can enjoy an optional quad bike experience if you wish on site. Then, take an adventurous 30-45 minute dune drive across the desert. Feel your adrenaline rush as you slide across from one dune to another in a 4x4 vehicle. The drive will take you further into the desert, up to a high desert dune for a photo stop.

From here, admire beautiful 360-degree views of the desert landscape as the sun slowly sets. Use this photo stop to try sandboarding (sand-surfing), before heading to the desert camp.

The 4-hour tour program ends here, and you will be returned to your hotel. If you've chosen the 7-hour option, your tour will continue with a visit to the hidden desert camp. Arrive at camp and be greeted with Qahwa (Arabic coffee), dates, and Lugamat (a traditional sweet).

Your safari guide will brief you about the various activities available at the camp. Hop on a camel for a short ride, try a shisha pipe, decorate your hands with Henna tattoos, or take pictures in traditional Arabic clothes. As the night settles in, enjoy a scrumptious BBQ dinner of kebabs, hummus, and salads accompanied by sodas, water, and additional drinks from the bar. Enjoy a colorful belly dancing show and Tanura performance, where fast-spinning dancers whirl across the stage. Don’t forget to snap some photos with the Arabian falcons that are present at the camp. Finally, after the last show, return to your hotel in Dubai.

Thank you Bishi Was such an awesome experience! From start to finish, really enjoyable. The camel riding was fun, they took lots of photos of us. Got to hold a falcon - again lots of photos. Dune bashing was very cool, scary but fun at the same time! Sand boarding was a really different experience, but really fun. Bishi was really attentive, took lots of photos and made it really enjoyable - talkative and took lots of photos. He made the experience the best :) Throughout, they made sure we were topped up with cold water bottles and refreshed. Thanks so much Bishi ! Highly recommend and would definitely do it again :)

It was really a great experience and a wonderful eventful trip! Our guide Bishi was just great. We were picked up directly from the hotel and were together with 4 other participants. The group got along well and we had a lot of fun. Bishi told us a lot and drove us to really beautiful places to enjoy the landscape to the fullest. We started with the dune bashing (really NOTHING to eat here beforehand ;)) and had several stops in between to take extensive photos. Bishi also took pictures of us or gave us tips. There was also the possibility of sand boarding or riding a camel if you wanted to. Finally, we went to a Bedouin camp with super delicious BBQ food, a fire show and a belly dancer. So it ended the trip really well. We will definitely never forget this experience and can absolutely recommend it from the bottom of our hearts. thank you Bishi
