Headout Dubai Reviews

Dubai is often referred to as the ‘City of Gold’, but its vast and beautiful deserts are where you’ll find the true heart of Arabia.  And if you're looking for an adventurous way to experience the Dubai desert, a desert safari is your way to go!

Safari means “journey” in Arabic, and that’s exactly what you’ll go on when you sign up for a desert safari tour. You’ll be transported by 4x4 into the heart of the desert, where you can take in the stunning landscape and maybe even spot some wildlife. Once you’ve reached your destination, you can choose to go sandboarding, camel riding, or even try your hand at falconry. And of course, no safari is complete without a traditional Arabic BBQ dinner under the stars. So why not add a desert safari to your Dubai itinerary? It’s an experience you’ll never forget!

Headout has a wide selection of desert safari experiences in Dubai, suited for both locals and and desert safari novices. Read what Headout Dubai guests who have tried and tested have to say!

Arabian Dune Desert Safari with Sandboarding, Camel Ride & BBQ Dinner , April 2022

Excellent service. We had our three young children with us and our host Adil was extremely great with the kids. The dune bashing was so fun and the BBQ camp was great and the food was excellent. The family absolutely loved it. My son left his sunglasses behind and was upset but Adil managed to recover them and have them delivered to the hotel. Thank you so much. The experience and service was the best we've had on our trip.

Evening Desert Safari with BBQ Dinner and Quad Biking, April 2022

Very pleasant and great experience with the desert safari. The Captain Adil is very kind and super nice. He picked up us from our choice of place and dropped us off at the hotel. He explained everything very well and was with us throughout for any questions we may have had. He made sure that we get good seating place at the activities venue in the desert. It was exhilarating to drive in the desert. The food was good. The live shows were enthralling. Would highly recommend to all for a one-of-a-kind experience.

Desert Safari with Entertainment & BBQ Dinner, April 2022

We did the safari with BBQ Dinner and even got a short camel ride in!!! What an amazing way to spend a evening in Dubai!!! I highly recommend it, do yourself a favour and go for the full trip and do both the quad biking and camel ride with your safari, you won't regret it aaaand don't forget your phone, there's some great photo Stops in the desert our transporter and driver of the safari, Captain Adeel, made the whole experience even better, great company in the car, made jokes and kept us entertained and also helped us take some great pictures! He definitely made the entire experience way better and deserves even more than the 5 stars!

Desert Safari with Entertainment & BBQ Dinner, June 2022

It was a great experience overall. It was as per the description mentioned on Headout Website while booking. Red Dune Safari was great, Adil, Commander and other support staff were very good and knowledgeable. Entertainment items were good and performed by professionals. My daughter enjoyed it very much. Food items spread was good. There are various types of Safaris at various prices. So one need to know which safari offers what. Overall it was very well managed and most importantly it was managed with safety and as per the time schedule provided. I would highly recommend it.

Combo: Burj Khalifa At The Top + Evening Desert Safari, July 2022

The ticketing and everything went pretty smooth and please don't think nonprime hours are a joke. There is a lot of crowd at that time too. So try to be there in time and capture all the best views and pictures possible.

Desert Safari with Entertainment & BBQ Dinner, December 2021

Our guide Commando was awesome! The favorite part of the safari was the ATV rides in the desert but the process of purchasing the tickets and getting the ATVs was complete chaos. Luckily Commando was very helpful in this situation. The dune bashing was very fun also.

Morning Desert Safari with Adventure Activities, Camel Ride & Sandboarding , April 2022

The desert ride by headout is the best of our trip. It includes pick up, ATV ride on the desert, ride in a SUV (very very special) on the desert, camel ride and finally tent in the desert includes full dinner with several live performances!! Our guide was an localite called Commando!! He was fantastic with the way we got treated, explained the areas and things about Dubai. We are sure to ask for him everytime!! Never miss the oppurtunity if you are going to Dubai!!

Classic Overnight Desert Safari , May 2022

All activities were amazing. All the staff members were very lovely. My partner was not feeling well during the Safari with Amir (I think this was the guide's name) and he was extremely understanding and kind.  I would definitely recommend to everyone and it is worth the price.

Classic Overnight Desert Safari , April 2022

The driver for the desert tour was at the hotel on time the next day and had already announced via WhatsApp exactly when he would be there. Highly recommend the desert tour. We can recommend Headout with a clear conscience.
