Headout Dubai Desert Safari 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!
Headout Reviews: The Best Desert Safari Tours in Dubai
"Highly recommended!! Excellent price and lots of great activities. Our guide Usman was very helpful and explained all the details. We had lots of fun and the opportunity of seeing the Arab culture 100%!"
"From the start of the trip till the end everything was well organized and we enjoyed it, the tent and the entertainment was amazing. The Captain Adil the Tour driver was very cooperative. I sincerely recommend to all to use Headout for the desert safari leisure tour!"
"Not someone who writes reviews but this one deserves it. The entire setup right from pickup to drop was a very smooth one, special mention for Commando who was very helpful and friendly. Would highly recommend taking this up on your trip."
"A great day out ticking off several boxes!! Our guide 'Commando' was very friendly, gave ongoing facts about Dubai and surrounding areas on the way to the desert, and was clearly an expert driver making the dune-bashing a great experience."
"It is best to book your tickets in advance to all attractions. We did that on our last trip to Dubai. We used Headout to book Early Morning Desert Safari tour. There was no unpredictability. It was quite a hassle-free arrangement."
"Going for the Early Morning Desert Safari was an excellent idea. We got free before noon and had the entire day to ourselves to explore the city. We didn't have to waste any time waiting as we had already made our bookings for this tour on this website. We loved the whole experience."
"Right from booking to the camp, everything was so easy and organized. I booked tickets online, showed them at pickup and then the awesome camp. Food was great too. Can't stop gushing about the whole thing."
"The desert safari was absolutely thrilling!!! Do NOT miss it at any cost. A dinner along with it was truly the cherry on top."
"I actually thought there is a mistake in pricing and they will ask us to pay more at the venue! But no! Everything was paid for and it really was such a cheap deal for this awesome experience." "
"Best experience: safari, food, and stargazing!!"
"As a vegetarian, I really appreciated that the dinner had tasty veg options. My daughter loved the safari and the camel ride. It was also the first time that she did stargazing, which we cannot do in the city."
"Did a camel caravan ride for the first time - it's definitely a must-do in the desert! "
"I would recommend this activity to everyone. Its so thrilling and you get a flavour of the tranquil desert away from the hustle bustle of city life. I got my bookings through this website. It was a wonderful experience, safari in evening followed by dinner and entertainment." "
"Riding that buggy over the sandy dunes of the desert was so joyful. Dinner was awesome. I am happy I booked this activity on this website. It was totally worth the money spent!"
"I have never had an experience like this. I booked this offer on this website. It was very easy to book. Loved riding the Buggy on sand dunes. The buffet was really good, they had lots of variety. Dancers performed beautifully. Total entertainment."
"I was traveling with my boyfriend to Dubai. We are both very fond of adventure sports. We made bookings for the Morning Desert Safari Dune Bashing Experience online. It was awesome. We did quite a few things as part of the package. Dune bashing, Camel ride, Sand ski… It was good fun!"
"Mind blowing experience. We had never done anything like this before. We got reservations done through this website. Nothing to complain. Good service."
"We were travelling in a large group to Dubai. We had made all our bookings ourselves instead of a tour operator. We booked Morning Desert Safari on this website. We got our e-tickets shortly. It was very convenient. Organising a large group without prior bookings is very tough. I am glad we did this."
"It was a good deal to book both the Burj Khalifa and the desert together. The Safari at the desert exceeded our expectations. Perhaps the food could be slightly better. The quads weren't included and we took them for some extra money. Good experience all together. The staff were nice."
"Personally loved the Desert Safari, it was so thrilling! A must-buy combo if you're visiting Dubai."
"Easy to book. The tour is well organised. Driver will message you via WhatsApp to give you the expected arrival time for pick up. Our Driver was Omar who was brilliant!!!! The Arabian experience was fantastic!!! We paid an extra 50 Dirham each to get a better view of the show (upstairs) and unlimited drinks and food will be served to you by the waiters rather than you queuing up for the buffet. You will also get your food before the tables at the bottom."

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.

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.

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.

Coordinating team is impressive. Right communication with on time delivery of things is a plus point. Yeah, tour guides are very cordial. Thanks team Headout!!
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.
