Full description
You will be picked up from your hotel or selected location in Dubai to start with your Desert Safari. After reaching the dune buggy center in the desert, you will receive instructions from your Safari Captain about the dune buggy ride. You'll be fitted out with all the appropriate safety gear for your dune buggy ride, after which, it is time to let the excitement begin. Get to drive down from the high red dunes in your customized dune buggy and enjoy the ultimate thrill. Then, get ready to enjoy the next action-packed activity - sandboarding. Strap your feet to the sandboard and slide down the sand dunes. Once you are done enjoying both the desert adventure activities, the 4-hour morning tour will conclude and you will be transferred back to your preferred location in Dubai. If you have selected the 6-hour evening tour option, you will be taken to the Al Khayma Desert Camp after the adventurous buggy ride. Upon reaching the camp, you'll enjoy camp activities such as a delightful camel ride, a photo session with a falcon, shisha smoking, henna tattoo, and a delicious BBQ dinner. Afterwards, you will be dropped back to your hotel or your preferred location.

    Lots of fun with the sand buggy outside in the red dunes. The sand boarding was difficult but also very nice :) We liked all the stages of our tour and we were lucky to be quite alone all the time. And our guide Omar was genious! The vintage G-Class ride is highly recommended for classic Car lovers.

    This was one of the best experiences I have ever had! The tour had everything, a buggy ride, camel ride, falconing, henna tattoo, dance shows and barbeque dinner. The highlight was the buggy tour though, absolutely incredible feeling! Nabeel, our guide was extremely friendly and welcoming. Thank you again for such a memorable experience!
