After a pickup from your centrally located Dubai hotel, relax in your private air-conditioned 4X4 vehicle as you head to the desert that surrounds the city. Admire views of the barren yet enchanting landscape on the way, and listen to your private guides tales about the region and its fascinating geology.

Watch a Falconer demonstrate the hunting skills of the Emiratis favorite bird and share in his knowledge about why the magnificent Falcons are so special to the Nation.

First stop on your desert rendezvous is a traditional camel farm to see herds of the magnificent humpbacked herbivores. Show off your balance skills on a camel ride around the enclosures, and learn about the different types of camels that are commonly seen in the desert around Dubai.

Continue by 4x4 across the desert plains and try your hand at a popular local pastime: sandboarding! Learn to master the art of 'surfing on sand' and race your friends and fellow travelers down the sand dunes during in an adrenaline-rushing experience. If you have upgraded to include a 30- or 60-minute quad-biking experience, enjoy this after sandboarding. Listen to a safety briefing, and then take to the dunes as you follow a local guide around the desert canyons and valleys.

Then, travel with your guide to a campsite, nestled deep in the desert where you will join other guests sharing the same experience. Take a seat outside to watch your show as the sun sets over the craggy canyons and sun-baked plains, and settle in for the evenings entertainment. Get a henna tattoo design on your hands or feet, watch a traditional tanoura folk dance, and feast on a delicious barbecue dinner. See the Itinerary for a sample menu.

After dinner, smoke a shisha (Arabic water pipe), if you wish, and watch a live belly-dance performance around the campfire. Relax under a canopy of twinkling stars and enjoy an experience that could be straight out of One Thousand and One Nights!

When you are ready to leave the partying, make your way to your tent complete with comfortable mattress, pillows and sleeping bag within the camp. Settle in and enjoy sleeping overnight in the heart of the desert!

Traveler Reviews

    It was the right choice to have a private car (Land Cruiser V6 4.5) as we have a 4 year old daughter. The driver (forgot the name but he was the unique Sri Lanka origin driver in the fleet) was very nice, kind, helpful, culture talking, excellent driving skills. The experience on the sand dunes was remarkable with a total of 12 cars of the same company. After a camel farm visit, we have reached a private area for Orient Tour guests only, so more private than the other companies where we have seen huge crowd at their theatral area. A falcon show and a short camel ride have followed, a shisha and coffee break, a little shawarma starter. An Egyptian dance, followed by a fire show. After a reasonable dinner, a belly dancer has showed her lithe aptitudes. All the people were nice with no exception. And we had the full moon!

    Buchungsabwicklung, Reiseunterlagen, Pünktlichkeit und Durchführung waren absolut top. Zunächst ging es im dem Geländewagen in die Wüste. Wir trafen uns mit weitern Fahrzeugen und es gab eine kleine Ralley mit Fotostopp in den Dünen. Unser Fahrer beherrschte das Fahrzeug perfekt. Dann ging es weiter zum Wüstencamp. Unterwegs machten wir einen Stopp bei einer Kamelfarm. Hier konnten wir Näheres über die Zucht erfahren und zum Beispiel den Kleinen beim säugen zuschauen. Als wir dann im Camp ankamen, gab es die Gelegenheit an verschieden Aktivitäten teilzunehmen. Ein kurzer Ritt auf dem Kamel, mit dem Sandboard die Düne runter oder man ließ sich ein Hannatatoo machen. Wer wollte, konnte auch einen Falken auf den Arm nehmen und ein Foto schießen lassen. Natürlich gabs auch arabischen Kaffee und die Möglichkeit Wasserpfeife zu rauchen. Alle hatten sich aufgeteilt und man musste nirgends lange anstehen. Mit Einbruch der Dunkelheit wurde das BBQ eröffnet. Alle Speisen waren lecker und es gab genügend Auswahl. Wasser war inklusive. Andere Getränke konnte man kaufen. Zwei Tanzeinlagen rundeten den gelungen Abend ab. Darunter war auch eine Bauchtänzerin. Die Tatsache, daß alle anderen Teilnehmer und auch unser Fahrer dann nach Dubai zurückfuhren und wir die beiden Einzigen waren die im Camp übernachteten, hat uns nicht beunruhigt. Wir haben uns trotzdem sicher gefühlt. Man hatte uns ein Zelt auf der Tanzfläche aufgebaut. Matratzen und Schlafsäcke waren sauber. Waren tagsüber noch 45 Grad, so hatten wir nachts im Zelt noch 28 Grad. Früh 5 Uhr sind wir auf die Düne gestiegen und haben im Sonnenaufgang herrliche Bilder gemacht. Im Anschluss kam unser Fahrer mit dem Frühstück. Dann ging es zurück ins Hotel. Die Fahrzeit war ca.1 Stunde 15 min. Im Camp konnte man einen USB Stick mit dem Film der während der gesamten Tour bzw. des Programms gemacht wurde, sowie zahlreichen Fotos bestellen. Er kostete 28,- Euro und war pünktlich am Folgetag an der Rezeption.

    We did not expect to join hundreds of other vehicles on our trip! The visit to the camel farm was interesting and dune bashing OK.
    The "Bedouin camp" was disappointing as was the food - very ordinary.
    There were a lot of people there and only four camels for a short ride.
    Entertainment just OK
    The worst part was the accommodation - just 2 man tents in the middle of the arena, very uncomfortable thin mattresses and old sleeping bags with a cushion from the lounge for a pillow! We hardly slept all night and were pleased to get back to our hotel after a VERY ordinary breakfast!

    Nice but too commercial

  • 17-Jan-2012

    Was well worth paying extra for private vehicle. Broke my wrist quad biking, that hurt. Continued on with the trip, bandaging my wrist (which is now in cast). I took my tripod expecting to get some great sunset shots, I didn't. So don't waste your time dragging your tripod around the world. Food was beautiful. Plenty of choice of drinks. Toilets were clean. There was about 40 people for dinner and we were only couple that stayed over, which was great. Would not want to experience dinner and overnight in peak season when its busy, would spoil the experience.

    Great belly dancing. Food was really mediocre for the price. Stayed overnight in the desert but never slept as planes flew over every 2 minutes all night. Obviously in the flight path
