Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Dream Journey, 23, Omar Bin Al Khattab Road, Dubai 80971 United Arab Emirates

Visit Dubai’s most remote desert area known as ‘Lahbab’, located approximately 50 kilometers outside Dubai city. Get picked up from your hotel in 4x4 vehicle by your safari guide. The tour will offer you experiences in the unique desert landscape of red dunes with picture perfect views of the desert surrounding. This tour is perfect for adventure seekers, families, couples and solo travelers looking for a unique tour combining fun, adventure, nature and culture.
Choose from a 4-hour tour option which includes 30-40 minutes dune bashing in Lahbab with sandboarding & camel rides or opt for a longer 7-hour all-inclusive tour option which includes 30-40 minutes dune bashing, sandboarding, camel rides and additional BBQ buffet dinner and all desert camp activities.
Start with a pick-up from your hotel in 4x4 vehicle. After all the guests have been picked up, head straight towards Lahbab. On the almost 45-minute drive, enjoy interesting views of Dubai from the car window and trade the big city with tall skyscrapers, shopping malls and metro/cars for old dusty towns on the outskirts of Dubai and then a completely isolated desert. Let the driver answer any of your questions and learn more about Dubai’s history.
Upon arrival in the desert, wait for 20 minutes for your driver to inflate the vehicle's tires so they are better suited to driving on the desert sands then head off-road and into the red dunes. Have a restroom break before heading into the desert whilst the team catches up in the 4x4 convoy. You can also spend that time enjoying an optional quad bike ride.
Then drive across the beautiful red dune desert. Enjoy an adrenaline rush ride as you slide across from one dune to another in the 4x4. Venture deeper into the desert for the best scenic views possible, then stop for a picture on the highest dune at sunset and admire beautiful 360 views of the desert landscape as the sun slowly sets down.
Try your hands at sand-boarding during the picture-stop. You’ll be able to surf the sand on the never-ending dunes. Guests of all ages are invited to do this activity which does not require any training. Glide and conquer the dunes with sand-boards and experience the wonderful thrills.
The 4-hour tour program ends here after the sunset, and you will be taken back to your hotel. The 7-hour tour program will continue to the Bedouin style camp hidden in the middle of the desert to enjoy many fun and exciting activities.
Arrive at the desert camp and be greeted with Qahwa (Arabic coffee), dates and Lugamat (traditional sweet). Your safari guide will show you all the activities to look for at the camp before being seated at your tables. You can hop on a camel for a short ride, try a Shisha pipe, decorate your hands with paintings by Henna tattoo artists, dress up and take pictures in traditional Arabic costumes and even shop at the souvenir stand for find unique and exotic stuff to buy.
As dusk falls enjoy scrumptious barbecue dinner of dishes such as kebabs, hummus and salads accompanied by sodas, mineral water and additional drinks from the bar. Enjoy a colorful belly dancing show and Tanura performance, where fast-spinning dancers’ whirl across the stage. There will be Arabian Falcons showcased at the camp as well, so be sure take pictures with them too.
Finally, after the last show, return to Dubai with your driver and enjoy a drop off at your hotel.

The half day safari (9am-1pm) was just right in terms of having the opportunity to experience the desert without having to include a meal which is offered on some other tours. Our guide picked us up promptly and we enjoyed the short camel ride and paid extra to drive quad bikes. The dune bashing was fun and we got some good photos to remind us of our experience.

Our guide was Rashid who was great with communication on WhatsApp, very kind, picked us up on time and was a GREAT driver diving through the sand dunes. If we ever have an opportunity then we would book this excursion again.

Great tour, professional and efficient pick-up, with great communication before tour regarding pick up.

Comfortable car; with lots of cold water and juice! Siddique was a wonderful tour guide- very knowledgeable and a great driver, he was attentive and helpful. Professional throughout but still made for a very fun day, that we will never forget! Thank you!

Dune bashing was fun and the show afterwards was entertaining (especially the flame throwing)along with good, authentic food. Our driver, Ibrahim was very nice, accommodating, and making sure we were good.

Mujeeb picked us up right on time and was knowledgeable and kind. When I asked if we could add 2 more he was very accommodating. The only negative was the camel ride was pretty short and disappointing. Other than that, all good!

Fantastic afternoon/evening, driven by the fabulous Mohammad Saddique, who looked after us so well. Picked up on time, very comfortable clean vehicle which held 6 of us in comfort. Thrilling ride in the desert, scary at times but felt safe in Saddique's hands. Great food and spectacular entertainment. Highly recommended.

I enjoyed this safari. I doubt I'll be in the desert again and definitely not driving around dune bashing. That was the best part. I'm a huge animal lover, so I didn't care for the camel ride. Poor things looked over worked, tired, and scared. They can leave that part out of this tour. Besides people got on, rode the camel in a small circle and got right back off. Not worth it for the camel nor for the people. Food and entertainment were okay. Our driver could have been nicer, all the way out to the desert and he said nothing. My friend was in another vehicle and she said her driver was talking all the way and telling them about the UEA an its history. Also his vehicle was full of trash and he was texting while driving.
