  • Explore the desert, and test your nerve in several adrenaline-pumping activities
  • Race up sand dunes in a 4x4 and speed just as fast down them. Known as dune bashing - this is your new favorite desert activity
  • Enjoy complimentary coffee and drinks, shisha pipe, BBQ, and traditional live entertainment

Prepare for an all-action adventure, designed to showcase the very best the Arabian Desert has to offer. With a hair-raising 'Dune Bashing' experience, dazzling displays of falconry, sandboarding thrills, and a sumptuous BBQ, you'll be spoilt for choice - luckily you have plenty of time to try them all!

Looking for adventure? You came to the right place. This adrenaline-pumped excursion whisks you out of Dubai's 5-star luxury cocoon and right into the desert!

Soak in the sights as your air-conditioned vehicle carries you deep into the sandy abyss, then board your cutting-edge all-terrain vehicle and hurtle around the shifting dunes with your expert driver. It's like your own private roller coaster, and completely different every time!

After bashing those dunes, test your skills at sandboarding (great for beginners and more serious boarders), and watch in awe as the birds take flight in a stunning falconry display.

Once you're thoroughly worn out, tuck into a traditional Arabic BBQ complete with authentic shisha and some belly dancing! You can also choose the VIP ticket for an exclusive catered service, with comfortable seating for the show and delicious meals served right at your table.

We had a driver Mahin, and he was great! He told us different facts about UAE and fun stuff. He’s driving was good in the desert. I get car sick, so luckily I asked pre-ordering the trip about it and good that we choose the normal Dune drive. There was lot’s of things to do at the camp where the dinner was, but weren’t told that those things (Henna tattoo, shisha, souvenir shopping, needed to be done during The show. After belly dancing it was time to go, and our group was waiting. All in all a good tour, food and guide - cheap! Very nice pictures and driver took them too with our phone. Ps. Buggy driving not included but possible - super fun!!
