Desert Dune Drive & Camel Farm Visit

Afternoon onwards

Get picked up in a 4x4 Jeep and waste no time exploring the desert! Experience the desert on a dune drive that’ll have you racing through the vast sandy terrain. Stop at a camel farm where you’ll see the animals up close and go on camel rides. Take some memorable photos with these unique animals, also known as the Ships of the Desert. Once you're back in the jeep and on the sands, your driver will stop again so you’ll get to experience the beautiful sunset over the dunes.

The Desert Adventure Begins

5pm onwards

One desert adventure sport to try out is sandboarding - sliding down the dunes on a waxed board. Think surfing but in the desert - sure to get your adrenaline pumping!

Also, go for the classic dune bashing experience for 30-40 mins in an AC vehicle - the most exciting way to enjoy the ups and downs of the Arabian dunes.

Experience Arabian Desert Hospitality & Culture

6pm onwards

On reaching the desert camp, relax in the atmosphere of Arabian hospitality as you savor some Arabic coffee and dates and enjoy shisha, an Arabic water pipe. If you wish, get a henna tattoo design too. Your overnight safari in Dubai is filled with activities! There are numerous live entertainment shows lined up – a fire dancer show, ‘Tanoura’ folk dance show, and a belly dancing performance.

Savour a Desert Camp Dinner Buffet

8:30pm onwards

Dig into a BBQ open buffet as the evening progresses. After you’ve satisfied your appetite, it’s time to settle down for the night - an overnight desert camping in Dubai experience awaits. Choose to sleep either inside a tent or under the stars. The desert night sky is really something else.

Bid Goodbye to the Desert

The next morning, after a light breakfast, you’ll be dropped back to the city the same way that you arrived for your fun overnight desert experience.
