You will have the option to take a short but thrilling Quad bike ride over the dunes during this period. Next up is the exhilarating dune bashing trip for around 30 to 45 minutes, with the Land Cruiser sliding up and down the dunes for an adrenaline rush.

Once you have taken part in these 2 adventure activities, you will go into the Al Khayma Camp. The camp is in the Bedouin style and captures the atmosphere of Old Arabia very well. You will be led to your tent, where you can relax for a bit as you sip on some Qahwa, a fine Arabic coffee, and nibble on some sweets and fresh Arabian dates.
Explore the beautiful Bedouin style camp
Next, take a desert ride on the back of a camel around the premises of the camp. If you are lucky, you might even catch sight of the sunset from a high dune. You will then return to the camp, where you can spend the time indulging in numerous activities. Smoke shisha in the traditional manner and dabble in henna paintings, and get a chance to take a photo dressed as an Arab with a falcon by your side! Next up is a Tanoura dance performance. The array of colours on the skirts of the dancers is sure to leave you mesmerized. A belly dance performance will follow, providing entertainment for the rest of the night. Concurrently, the barbecue buffet dinner will be open, and you can enjoy a vast spread of dishes from across the world. A campfire is arranged, guaranteeing a full-fledged desert life experience. As you sit by the fire, you can learn how to make Arabic tea and coffee. Intriguing desert stories and legends will follow, and in the pitch black darkness of the desert, you can see millions of constellations in the sky. You will then retire to your tent for the night.
Catch a beautiful view of the sunrise over the sand dunes of the Arabian Desert!
The next morning you will wake up 15 minutes before sunrise. A camel caravan will be waiting for you and you will go for a short trek, as a breathtaking view of the sunrise over the golden sand awaits you! The sight will look like it is out of a magazine, and it is a memory you will cherish forever! You will return to your camp for an Arabian Breakfast, and get ready to depart from this quaint place.
