Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Dubai, Dubai, Emirate of Dubai

Choose from 4-hour program that includes dune bashing, sandboarding and camel ride or the full 7-hour program with the addition of a BBQ dinner and enjoy many other activities at a VIP Bedouin-style camp'.

Start your experience with pickup in a safari-style 4WD vehicle from your central Dubai hotel and zoom into the remote Lahbab desert that lies outside the city.

During the drive, your guide answers any questions and shares information about the region. Head off road into bright red dunes and have your camera ready to capture what looks like giant beanbags of sand. During a break to gather the convoy, make use of optional quad bikes on-site. Then hold tight as you cruise toward the highest slopes. Feel the adrenaline race as your 4x4 plows up the dunes before sliding and slipping back down the slopes, churning up billowing clouds of sand in the process.

Reach a high desert dune for a photo stop and admire 360-degree views of the desert landscape as the sun slowly sets (afternoon tour). Take a camel ride and surf the dunes on a sandboard before you continue on to a Bedouin-style camp hidden in the middle of the desert (if 7-hour option selected).

The 4-hour tour ends here and you are returned to your Dubai hotel.

For those who have chosen a 7-hour tour, proceed to a torchlit camp, settle inside a cushion-strewn tent, and savor some fresh Arabian coffee and dates. Your safari guide will brief you about the various activities available: smoke a shisha (water pipe), decorate your hands with henna designs, and take pictures in traditional Arabic clothes.

As dusk falls, dig into a scrumptious barbecue dinner of dishes such as kebabs, hummus, and salads accompanied by sodas and mineral water, and additional drinks (own expense) from the bar. While you eat, enjoy a colorful belly dancing show and tanoura performance, where fast-spinning dancers whirl across the stage. If you wish, click snaps with Arabian falcons at the camp.

Finally, return to Dubai by 4x4, where your experience concludes with a hotel drop-off.

From the pickup from the hotel to the return to the hotel this was an amazing experience. The drive to the dunes by Haroon was informative and he could do no more for us than he did. The drive through the dunes going up and down and side to side was enthralling/exciting. At the top of a dune the sand boarding was a great addition for a bit of fun. Overall an excellent experience much remembered. 5☆

We did the safari 7hr trip on 24th feb.. from start to finish it was excellent!! we were picked up on time by our friendly guide Ali, he made us welcome and told us all about what was going to happen. As we drove to the dessert he told us all about the area which was really interesting. I was a little anxious about the dune bashing but didnt need to be as I felt reassured and safe with Ali who made it really fun.
We did sand boarding and had a camel ride before sitting for dinner..
Food and entertainment were very good with choice for meat and non meat options..
Excellent tour and excellent guide which we would recommend

Our driver spoke ( maximum) 100 words during the whole experience. Either he was the shy type, or did not speak sufficient English, or it was not his day. The ( short) camel ride was barely that-maximum 5min, so that a photo could be taken. Then an optional ($$) dune-buggy ride which -if you did not partake- was sitting around for 35 minutes. The only exiting thing was the dune-safari, really an exhilarating experience

Tour guide, Alam was amazing. Very attentive and showed lots of hospitality. I just think the 5 min camel ride was not long enough as well as the 10-15min sand dune ride. The entire tour probably lasted less than 1hr minus transportation to and from the hotel. However, as mentioned the tour guide was amazing.
