Stop At: Dream Journey, Dubai, Emirate of Dubai

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.

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.

Bishi was our driver who picked us up from our apartment, he was very accommodating from the get go and we felt safe the whole time. The whole experience was amazing, from the dune bashing in the 4x4, sandboarding and photo ops galore! When you get to the main camp the camel riding, henna and falconry are optional. There is a belly dancing show etc while you eat your dinner from the large buffet. Complimentary Arabic coffee and sweet treat on arrival also. We also stopped off at a quad bike area before the dune bashing which was optional and extra cost. Great experience but maybe not suitable for children under 8.

It was a great moment in family for Christmas with our guide Jabar. He's a very good sanddriver, very funny things.

Amazing experience. Our guide Amer was fun and professional. We had a rare opportunity of getting rained in the middle of the desert. This made the driving on the dune difficult but he was really skilled and totally reliable. Sitting down for dance shows and meal at the camp was a nice relaxing way to finish the day. The desert is so beautiful, it's worth a visit even if you are not interested in camel ride or other touristy stuff.

Basically the safari was wonderful. The driver/guide was excellent, very informative and the after entertainment/meal was good. The only downfall were the amenities at the 1st stop. The whole area was dirty and unorganised.
