  • 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.

Die Wüstensafari war sehr gut, hat sehr viel Spaß gemacht. Bbq war lecker. Der Rest hätte nicht unbedingt sein müssen, insbesondere das Kamelreiten.
Insgesamt lohnt es sich aber!

Vielen lieben Dank Jackson!
Ein toller Guide, der durch sein Engagement, seinen (postiv) aufregenden Fahrstil und mit jeder Menge Spaß bei der Arbeit, bestach. Die Tour selbst war anfangs straff, aber gut organisiert. Man hatte beim ersten Stopp die Möglichkeit Quad zu fahren. Kosten lagen für 20min zu zweit bei 200 VAD/Ca 50Eur oder alleine 150 VAD. Danach ging es im Verbund durch die Wüste. Dann ein Stopp in der Wüste zum etwa 20min Sandbording. Weiter zum neuen Spot, die Fahrer kümmerten sich derweilen um den Reifendruck und wir hatten Zeit für Fotos zum Sonnenuntergang, wobei ein schönerer Ort definitiv wünschenswert gewesen wäre! Im Hintergrund stand ein Sendemast, drumherum war es teils dreckig. Anschließend ging es zum Kamelreiten und der Abendveranstaltung mit Falkenschau ( man durfte ihn halten und Fotos machen), der Anprobe landestypischer Gewänder+Fotos, Henna, Schischa und dem Abendbuffet mit einer männlichen Showeinlage und abschließend einer Bauchtanzeinlage. Danach ging es wieder zurück. Alles in allem sehr gelungen und deshalb 5*

Die Hinfahrt hatt ewigs gedauert man hatt uns ewig warten lassen danach sind wir regelrecht durch die Wüste gehetzt! Ganz knapp haben wir den Sonnenuntergang nicht verpasst - Sandboarden war auch kein Thema mehr!
