I loved the quad bike ride, and the setting for the evening meal and camel ride. Booking was very easy. Our guide, Wajahat, was great. Easygoing, kept an eye on all of us and offered information on the area and the creatures we saw. The food for dinner was lovely and high quality. I felt like the whole experience was good value.

The activities were fabulous. The experience of quad biking was something to cherish for long long time. The camp for food and entertainment in the evening was fabulous. Multiple cuisines and each with superb tastes. And I must say about the beautiful deserts in the desert!!

Depart for the Lahbab Desert in an Air-Conditioned Vehicle

2:45pm onwards

After being picked up by the Safari Captain, a 60-minute drive will take you to the desert. On the way, you will learn about Dubai's humble origins and trendsetting innovations.

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

4:30pm onwards

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.

Head to the Al Khayma Desert Camp

5:30pm onwards

Make your way to the desert camp, where you will be welcomed with Qahwa (Arabic coffee), Gaymat (sweets), and dates. An unlimited supply of drinks is at your disposal.

Get Ready for Camel Riding, Live Entertainment, and More at the Desert Camp

7pm onwards

Commit yourself to enjoying classic red dune desert safari experiences such as camel riding and henna painting. You can even get an Arabic makeover as you try Kandura and Abaya - Arabian clothes for men and women. Don't miss out on a meeting with the Falcon expert, and pose for a picture with the regal bird.

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.

As a final treat, the camp will be completely switched off, casting the camp in a beautiful desert night ambiance. Gaze at the night sky and soak in the peaceful atmosphere.
