Description

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.

The guide was very nice and experienced, sandboarding & dessert safari were not very exciting but memorable enough, the BBQ was better than I thought. Recommended if you're going to Dubai! One thing for improvement there is not enough time to enjoy the dessert sunset.
