Enjoy Dubai's n°1 activity: the desert safari!

Departing from your hotel, you'll travel by 4X4 to the edge of the desert. From here, your driver will take off on a high-speed safari, accelerating and skidding the vehicle through the middle of the sand dunes – thrills guaranteed!

The first stop will be at a camel farm, where you'll learn about the particularities of this endearing animal. You will then travel to a remote bedouin camp in the middle of the desert. Here you will be offered various activities: sandboarding, a camel ride or a henna tattoo. You can even smoke a traditional shisha!

As the sun sets in the desert, you will share a delicious BBQ dinner while watching a belly dance show. With family or friends, this outing guarentees a fun time for all! You will be returned to your hotel at the end of an unforgettable day and evening.

  • Une après-midi au top accompagnés par Noor qui est vraiment un guide au top et une personne très soucieuse de la sécurité sur la route et dans le désert. L’excursion est très bien organisée. Vous ne le regretterez pas et en garderez comme nous un souvenir inoubliable. Les différentes activités et manifestations sont parfaites et le repas du soir et digne d'un grand festin. rien ne manque et encore une fois, tout est organisé d'une main de maitre. Bravo!! Et encore merci à Noor pour sa gentillesse et sa générosité.
