Discover the authentic side of the famously modern city with this Dubai Overnight Desert Safari. You'll sleep in a Bedouin camp along with luxury comforts.
Dubai Overnight Desert Safari
We'll pick you up from your hotel in Dubai between 1:45 and 2:30 pm, and make our way to the Lahbab Desert to begin this incredible adventure.
On arrival, we'll rest for 20 minutes and then get back on a 4x4 Land Cruiser to enjoy one of the most exciting activities of the day, dune bashing. While on a powerful off-road vehicle driven by an expert pilot, we'll go through the dunes practising skidding and climbing these imposing sand mountains.
After this experience, we'll move on to sandboarding. You'll be given a board to slide down the dune at full speed before heading to the camp where we'll spend the night. When we arrive at the accommodation, you'll be welcomed with coffee, tea, traditional treats and dates. Then we'll meet back up for a camel ride at sunset.
You'll then have some free time to tour the camp and relax. When night falls, we'll witness a very special show and meet the dancers of the famous tanoura dance.
Once the show is over, we'll enjoy a delicious barbecue dinner in which you'll be able to taste some traditional dishes, with an option for vegetarians. Afterwards, a belly dancer will liven up the end of the dinner.
We'll end the day next to a bonfire and admire the undeniable beauty of the Milky Way before going to sleep in our Bedouin tent.
The next day, we'll wake up 15 minutes before dawn to take in this magnificent natural spectacle while on a short camel ride. Then you'll enjoy a wonderful breakfast before returning to your hotel in Dubai, arriving at 12 pm.
Children under 5 years old and pregnant women won't be able to participate in the dune bashing, they will have to wait at the camp during this time.
The following images will show you the tents, rooms and bathrooms.
