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.

I organized this safari during a 18hour layover based on reviews. I booked the morning safari but missed it due to my flight to Dubai getting delayed due to storms in Dubai. However, the team were fantastic and booked me on the afternoon safari on short notice and picked me up from a different location too on very short notice. Our driver Jabari was fantastic and made the safari very enjoyable. I thoroughly recommend this tour.

Superb day out, did not opt for the BBQ as we were half board in the hotel, my 9 year old loved it especially the sand surfing

Having been to Dubai before we decided to do something a little different. We chose the Red Dune 4c4 ride and camel ride and we aren’t sorry we did! It was a thrilling ride and very interesting at the same time. Our guide Nasir was the best!

Love it especially the photo opportunities on the sand dunes and the camel ride (the ride was short and sweet and photo opportunities as well by the camel owner) however the 4WD drive on the sand was a bit too much for me as I felt a little sick due to motion sickness hence my sand boarding attempt was a failure. We should have told about the renting of buggy ride; I would have brought little bit more money with me. But all in all great experience.
