Desert Safari with Dinner and Show
If there's one unmissable activity in Dubai it's the Desert Safari, so if you want to make the most of your holiday, be sure to reserve a night for this activity.
Having picked you up at your hotel at the time you booked, we'll hit the road toward the desert near Dubai in 4x4 all-terrain vehicles.
Once there, after adjusting the pressure on the 4x4 tires, our drivers will show you the mastery of their vehicles in these difficult, red-duned conditions, and over 30 minutes will take you on an adrenaline-fuelled dune-bashing ride. And you'll have the opportunity to surf the dunes of the Dubai desert on a sandboard.
Before heading to the camp, we'll make a stop to see the sunset: a magical experience when the color of the sand changes and the dunes begin to cast long shadows.
Once in the camp, you'll be able to ride a camel, try shisha, wear traditional outfits, get a small henna tattoo, and sample traditional Arab coffee - all included!
Dinner is a barbeque under the stars, with different kinds of meat on offer, as well as starters, salads, and typical sweet treats from the region. And the cherry on the cake will be the various spectacles, which include among them the famous nashaat dancing.
Having eaten and enjoyed the show we'll hit the road back to Dubai, finishing the tour back at your hotel.
If you'd prefer, you can choose to book the option that includes a tour in a Vintage G Class Mercedes 1980s vehicle. We'll pick you up from your hotel, at either 2:30 pm from September to April or 3:30 pm from May to August, and set off on this exciting 6-hour activity.
To begin, we'll cross the arid Al Marmoom Desert Reserve. On this 30 to 40-minute drive, you'll see vast landscapes stretching as far as the eye can see from the vintage off-road vehicle.
We'll then visit a local Bedouin village. After learning about this nomadic desert people's customs and traditions, we'll watch the sunset and go on a fun camel ride across the dunes.
As the evening draws in, you're sure to have an appetite, so we'll enjoy a traditional Arabian coffee and a delicious dinner. While you enjoy the tasty dishes, you'll also be treated to an evening show that'll give you an insight into the United Arab Emirates' traditional folklore.
At the end of the show, you'll be driven back to your hotel in Dubai.
This tour includes pickup at the Port Rashid cruise terminal and at hotels in Dubai, Sharjah, and Ajman.
