  • 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.

A full afternoon and evening. Abbas, our driver’s good humour never flagged. One of the best value excursions we have ever had.

Our driver was excellent.
Dune bashing and the sand buggies were great fun. The vehicles were really comfortable.
The weather was not great so we struggled to get outside and do sand boarding. Just as we had given up our driver found us a spot. Again fantastic fun.
The camp was not really a traditional camp, but the food was great and the last act the flame thrower was great.
The drivers are brilliant, or guy had blankets for us at the camp for when it got cooler. After driving all day, they were then serving the BBQ and drive us back.
Overall a great 6/7 hours. Kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Great value for money compared to the others.
