Live like a local on this VIP desert safari. You'll visit an Arab campsite and get to experience desert life firsthand. Book your trip now and enjoy a unique time in the heart of Dubai's desert.

After meeting with your tour guide at the port, you'll hop into a luxury Land Cruiser and spend about 45 minutes riding to the heart of the Dubai desert with your tour group. Your power-packed afternoon starts by conquering some of the tallest sand dunes with an exhilarating 4x4 dune drive deep into the desert. You can explore the desert charm further by opting for sand surfing or sandboarding. There's no need for a formal training. For enthusiasts this will come naturally, as it is very much like gliding over snow. Enjoy a panoramic view of the vast desert and the serenity of the golden dunes. Upon arrival at the Arabic campsite, you'll be welcomed with delicious Arabic coffee and dates. At the camp, there's a wealth of educational and leisure activities for you to enjoy. You can ride a camel, take pictures with a falcon, delight yourself with Sheesha smoking, and get painted with henna art.

Finally, indulge your senses with an authentic Arabic gourmet that will have you feeling like royalty. A lavish dinner of tasty barbecue dishes with unlimited soft drinks to quench your thirst will be brought to your table. Enjoy your dinner while watching the performance of the traditional Tanura dancer and the mysterious and alluring belly dancer. By the end of this tour, you'll have a better idea of what desert life is really like in Dubai. Make your reservation today.

Please Note: On Islamic religious holidays, the tour runs without the dance performances. This tour cannot accommodate luggage.

Sports shoes are suggested for those interested in sandboarding. If you are not planning on sandboarding, we suggest wearing sandals. All guests are encouraged to refrain from eating 2 to 3 hours prior to the tour, to avoid motion sickness during the dune exploration portion of the tour.

Our guide Ansar Anu with OceanAir Travel was wonderful. He was early to the port to pick us up with a clean and well maintained Toyota 4x4. His dune bashing driving skills were impeccable and his music made the journey even better. He stayed with us to ensure we were able to maximize our time to explore by getting us to the front of the line to sand board and to ride the camels. The dinner buffet was plentiful and delicious. There was alcohol for purchase if you wanted. Free shisha, free henna tattoos and also the ability to hold a falcon for pictures. On the way back to the ship our driver took us on a night tour of the city showing us areas we had not been to yet and was full of facts and knowledge. It was a nice extra touch. We were above and beyond pleased with this excursion and later found out that this excursion offered a more personal and enjoyable experience with more included than what was offered on our cruise ship AND we saved over $100 by booking privately!
