Your first stop in the desert will be a rest area. Enjoy a 25-minute break before your safari experience begins to rest or make use of the bathroom facilities. If you so wish, go for an optional quad bike ride.
Experience the Thrill of Dune Bashing and Sandboarding
The red dune desert safari adventure begins in earnest after the break. Spend the next 30-45 mins bashing dunes on the silken sands of the Lahbab. For an extra dose of adrenaline, take a gander at sandboarding - go all the way up to a top of a sand dune and slide all the way down on a sandboard.
You can also opt to experience some sand tromping fun on a quad bike instead.

Evening entertainment comes in the form of 3 delightful shows that will take you close to the Middle Eastern arts and culture - a Tanura dance show, a fire show, and a belly dance Khaliji-style show after the barbecue dinner and tasting of local desserts. You can choose between a self-service open buffet or a VIP food service wherein the staff will serve the meal at your table.
