Moosa, our guide and driver was on time for pick up, gave us a very exciting ride in the desert and took fantastic pictures for us. Ticketing was easy and communication excellent.

Our guide was called Shihab and he was absolutely brilliant. He was on time to pick us up at the hotel and was very friendly from the outset. He was very helpful and pointed out areas of interest in Dubai on the way to the Desert Safari. He looked after us throughout our desert Safari experience and was patient and engaged with us. Overall the experience was interesting and exciting, including Camel ride, sand boarding and dune bashing. We all felt the whole experience was very good value for money.

Easy booking experience and the guide Shihab arrived on time for the pickup and the quadbiking, dune driving, camel ride and sand boarding were awesome making it a great memory of our Dubai trip. Shihab was extremely knowledgeable and professional, he made the experience better with his attitude and encouragement to nervous quadbike riders.

This was the most fantastic trip. We are a family of 5 and were hosted by Fayyaz. The communication prior to the trip was incredible, then the attention to detail and value for money was incredible! We held a falcon, quad biked, 4x4 through the dunes, sand boarded, all while being looked after and treated amazingly! We will definitely book again next year! Make sure you ask for Fayyaz!!

We booked our morning safari in the evening the previous day of the safari. I chatted with representatives of the customer service team and they managed to confirm the exact time we had to be at the hotel's lobby. Our guide Imran Zohaib messaged me about an hour before the time we needed to be ready, just to confirm that he's on his way. He picked the four of us and we went to pick another couple from another hotel. We hadn't booked the quad bike ride and Imran suggested we book it on the spot because it's an experience we shouldn't miss. He was right. We enjoyed it very much. After the quad bike ride we did a bit of dune bashing, camel ride, more dune bashing, sand boarding and more dune bashing. Our guide Imran Zohaib was kind enough to take pictures and videos of all of us during the different activities. He provided valuable information during the safari and managed to answer all of our questions. We strongly recommend Ocean Air Travels Dubai and their guide Imran Zohaib.

Morning Pick-Up from Your Hotel

7am onwards

Begin your morning adventure desert safari with a pick-up from your hotel. Your vehicle will be an air-conditioned 4x4 Land Cruiser with a local guide coming along too. You’ll soon reach the Lahbab Red Dunes desert site and have about 25 mins to settle down and use the restroom facilities if needed.

Dubai Desert Activities: It’s Dune Bashing & Sandboarding Time!

8:40am onwards

Once your 4x4 vehicle is ready, take 30-45 minutes to explore the dunes by going off-road at varying speeds and directions. With your vehicle having all the necessary safety features and your driver being a skilled safari driver, focus on just having a great time as thrilling turns and bounces increase your adrenaline. Really, there’s no better way to have a desert safari adventure than to experience dune bashing. Try out sandboarding afterward – sliding down the dunes on a waxed board. Remember, take lots of photos of your time at the dunes.

You can also try out quad biking, should you wish to opt for that ticket option. Drive the spunky beast of a bike by yourself on the dunes and take it in the mesmerizing views around you.

Relax in the Traditional Atmosphere of the Al Khayma Camp

9:30am onwards

Now it’s time for the relaxing part of your energetic morning safari. At the Al Khayma camp, enjoy Arabian hospitality as you sit back and relax with some Arabic coffee (gawa), sweets (gehmet), and dates. Go around the neighboring area near the camp on a camel ride and repeat, if you like - a fitting end to your morning desert adventure.

Drive Back to the City

Depart back to your hotel in an included drop-off.
