Full description

Avoid the urban sprawl of Dubai on an action-packed experience in the desert. Drive across the dunes and visit a traditional Arabic Bedouin camp. Head to a Bedouin camp and experience the traditional Arabic reception of coffee and dates on arrival. See the camp at your own pace, cover yourself in traditional Arabic clothes, and take pictures. Have the opportunity to ride a camel and stop across the desert to watch the beautiful sunset. Enjoy having henna painted on your hands or feet. Listen to music while drinking tea or Arabic coffee at the campsite. Taste a delicious barbecue dinner and try the famous Arabic shisha water pipe. Gaze at a star-lit belly dance performance around the campfire before you return to Dubai or Sharjah.

Fantastic experience, well managed and organized, very nice and helpful staff. The dune safari is a lot of fun, as is the very nice sand surfing. In the package there was also a ride on the camel and the henna tattoo. Very pleasant evening ended with fire show, dancing and barbecue. Highly recommended, our teenage boys had a blast.

Absolutely amazing day out. We thought 8hrs would be to long but the day went so fast due to being actioned packed from start to finish. Buggy racing in the desert then the driver took us off roading in the 4x4, sand boarding, camel riding & then finished off with a bbq & a live belly dancing & fire breathing performance. Would highly recommend for a family day out.
