How to Use

  • After being collected from your hotel in a comfortable 4WD Land Cruiser, you will journey for approximately 60 minutes to the Lahbab desert. Once in the desert, you will take 20 minutes to break before your safari starts. You can either relax here, or opt to go for a quad-bike ride while your vehicle for the off-road dune drive is prepared. You will then go for a dune bashing ride that lasts 30-45 minutes, where you can feel peculiar excitement as your Land Cruiser climbs up and slides down the sand dunes. Following this, you can try the adventure sport of sand boarding. Stand on the wooden board provided, balance yourself and glide down over the sands.

  • After sand boarding, you will head to Al Khayma, a Bedouin type campsite, where you will be lead to your own tent (Khayma) inside the camp. After settling in here, you can taste Gahwa (Arabic coffee), Gaymat (sweets) and dates as a sign of welcome. You will then go for a camel ride around the camp premises, and depending on the time and luck, view the sunset over the desert. Back at Al Khayma Camp, you can spend your time shisha smoking and henna painting. You can put on local Arabian cloth and pose for photos with a falcon, and at the camp center stage, a Tanoura dance will be performed. You will soon be invited for a lavish buffet dinner full of barbecue dishes, whilst at the stage, Ladies Khaliji Dance will keep you entertained.

  • Following dinner, you will be taken by camel back to a nearby camp area where a fire will be arranged for you. You will then be given a demonstration session on how to make Arabic coffee/tea, whilst you relax in the night sitting by the campfire, enjoying the silence of the desert and the dark sky above. Your desert guide will add to the fun with interesting desert stories, and when it’s time to sleep, you will return to the camp. You will retire back to your tent for a comfortable sleep atop a Nawar bed (Bedouin-style bed), complete with a pillow and blanket.

  • The following morning, wake up 15 minutes before sunrise to witness that spectacular view. Your guide will take you to the desert with a camel caravan that is waiting outside the camp. You will go camel trekking for about 15-20 minutes, capturing the nice view of the sunrise over the sand dunes. After camel trekking, you will return to your tent before eating a freshly cooked Arabian breakfast. Later, you will be driven back to Dubai and dropped off at your accommodation.

Amazing tour! So many pretty places to take photos and relax! Guides were brilliant helping you get the best of the photo ops, including pics of us holding the Island up, and diving down to get photos of the clown fish on my phone for me. Alot better than expected, and would definietly book again next time Im around. I was worried the time would feel rushed, but it wasnt, it was lovely:) 5***** thanks guys!
