What To Expect

Get ready for your morning desert safari Dubai as our guide picks you from your selected location or hotel. Board our 4WD vehicle that will take you to the desert. Once you reach there, take a small break for 20-25 minutes, make use of bathrooms, rest, or even opt for a quad bike drive, while your vehicle readies for the off-road drive with adjusted tyre pressures. Then, seat comfortably for the dune bashing session. Enjoy the rhythm of the vehicle riding over the sand dunes and feel the adrenaline rush! After around 35-45 minutes of dune bashing, click as many photos you want and relax for some time before you proceed for sand surfing (sandboarding). First, follow the instructions of your guide before you climb up and down the sandbanks on your board. As you surf over the sands, you will find this quite funny and unique!

An amazing and once in a lifetime experience. Incredible - full of culture!!! Our tour guide Baba was the best! He educated us so much of Dubai, both old and new!
Great value for money

Quad bikes were very good, instructors were good throughout. We enjoyed the day and would recommend to others
This tour was great! I...
Stephanie_K, 29-09-2022
This tour was great! I was travelling solo and had a wonderful experience. Rafeek was an amazing and knowledgeable guide! I also preferred this as a morning tour instead of the evening as there is less “hanging around”
Amazing experience. Will definitely do it again!

I would want to start by saying that the price I paid was Really affordable. The team did everything to brief me on the day before in terms of the timings /schedules as well as dress code, with some useful tips for quad biking as well. The guide Shihab was on time and punctual. The land cruiser was very comfortable to travel in and I received very clear instructions from the guide for each activity I took part into. Everything was done within safety norms and the time given for each activity was fair. I did not have pressure on the time and finished within the expected time initially communicated to us by the guide. I got fresh drinks at the camp. The guide even took great pictures with my phone and gave me some recommendations on the other attractions to go to in Dubai. I would like to highlight his friendliness and how helpful he has been through out the journey. I would recommend Shihab for future safari tours.
Unique, Unrepeatable Safari experience!
VALENTINA_N, 12-09-2022
The best ever Safari trip, guided by Moosa. Thank you so much for such a great time !!! Highly recommended
One day in Dubai as a solo traveler
TravelingAnnieTime, 17-12-2022
Highly recommend!

Shams, our driver/guide, was great! He made sure the car guests were comfortable (and well hydrated), was the unofficial guide about Dubai as a local, and of course a superb driver. He also never made any pitch sales for additional experiences or pushed us to "buy more" but was there to help us get the most out our trip. Super chill guy.
A well organized trip

Our tour guide and private Driver Aku was so welcoming and kind. Throughout the whole experience he was available to answer any question we had. He is also super talented at driving in the sand and great at taking pictures.
He made sure our whole experience was so pleasant and memorable. He talks good English.
A freeing experience in the desert!!!!

I had Riaz as my tour guide and he was amazing. I would Definitely recommend him. He gave a lot of history on Dubai while we were driving to the desert. I felt safe and he took some amazing pictures of my husband and I journey on our entire adventure.
Perfect Dune Safari Experience!!!
Rosalba_B, 09-01-2023
Our pick up from the hotel with Lala was seamless. The 4x4 SUV was very comfortable, airconditioned and very clean. The safari over the dunes was fantastic....Lala sure knows how to control a car! The drive was so much fun! Our camel ride was great with well groomed and well behaved camels! The sand boarding was fun and we had many turns. Lala was very informative about Dubai history and culture! We had children on our safari and he was very attentive to their needs and fun. Thank you Lala for a great morning safari...very memorable!
Excellent experience
ChicagoPatel, 07-01-2023

First Class Desert Safari Experience

We had a great time with this desert tour. The driver/guide was professional, informative and very prompt. I was impressed with how focused he was on safety and ensuring we were all comfortable and enjoying ourselves. First class!

ATV ride was great (definitely worth paying the extra amount to explore the broader desert area!) and the camel ride was a good photo opportunity. A great way to experience the desert!
Great and highly recommended activity

Our experience in the desert was absolutely amazing! We had Niki pick us up at our hotel on time and brought us to the desert an hour away,we started off with the quad bikes that was great fun for the whole family then we went to ride the camels,we started our dune bashing and it was great fun not as rough as we thought it would have been which was good we did the sand boarding and Niki brought us back to our hotel after some refreshments at the end of the day.Overall we had an amazing day i would tell everyone going to the desert to chose this one as it was very well organized and Niki was lovely.

The ride was very fun. Our guide, Bilal Ahmad was great.
Tip for the sandsurf: try not to scream, you will get sand on your mouth.
Really fun experience
