Know More about this tour

After a pickup from your centrally located Dubai hotel, relax in an 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. 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 late afternoons entertainment. Get a henna tattoo design on your hands or feet, watch a traditional folk dance, and feast on a delicious barbecue dinner.

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!

    This was really good value for money. We had the vehicle to ourselves. The guide/driver arrived promptly at our hotel lobby and was amiable throughout. He was an expert at driving at the sand dunes and we were safe and had fun. We had a quick visit to a camel farm. The camel ride was just a short circle around the area but it is enough for me. The entertainment during dinner could’ve been grander but I have no complaints if it means keeping costs down.

    Mehul is the best your guide in Dubai hands down. He has so much knowledge on Dubai and he sense of humor was so fun and refreshing! His partner was an amazing bus driver and such a smooth ride all week for our tours. Thank you both for an amazing week in your beautiful city. We will be back.

    We were picked up on time from our hotel by our tour guide, Jaffar, who was absolutely brilliant. He chatted to us along the way and told us lots of interesting facts as we passed landmarks. Once in the desert we were able to take photos of the camels, then came dune bashing! This was such an exhilarating experience!! Next we went on to the camp where all activities were included; henna tattoos, shisha & traditional arabic coffee, camel rides, sand boarding and shows. We were also able to enjoy the most delicious bbq and there were as many soft drinks and water as you wanted. The camp was so well set out and there were clean toilets etc. I would recommend this trip to everyone, it was our most enjoyed activity of our holiday!

    The itinerary was quiet good. A stop at a camel farm with a lot of questions and answers. Some stops in the desert for taking pictures and of course the 4x4 driving across the desert. The camp does have a nice setup layout wise. You can go camel riding but it is just a short circle to take some pictures to be sold later on. The sand boarding is a disappointment as you will not move downhill. Not steep enough. You can take pictures with a falcon or have a henna tattoo. Drinks are included (except for alcohol) there are a few performance: dancer, fire artist and belly dancer. Food is a buffet with partly a bbq. What raised this tour a notch was the driver/guide Nabil. He answered all questions and ask himself as well and in the process pointed out many things along the way. He is a very knowledgeable and experienced guide. Highly recommended

    Amazing experience and enjoyed sand dune bashing. We booked a private safari and it was worth it. Our driver Noufan was very experienced and knowledgeable and kept us entertained. Loved the quad bikes rides. Very friendly team at the camp, food and entertainment was good. Will surely do this again if I am back in Dubai in future

    It was a busy day full of adventure and fun!! I was with a group of 90 people (VP Productions) We were divided into groups of 5 in land-cruisers and picked up from our hotel. Many of us went on ATVs first. Next we met as a group and took pictures in the desert as our drivers deflated the tires for the desert driving. The desert driving was amazing and felt like ATV riding (in AC)!! Our driver made sure to provide us cold water in vehicle #5 (so sorry I cannot remember his name). We stopped and took more group pictures. Then drove on for a bit. We then stopped to take pictures at the camel farm. Next we arrived at the camp site. There was a cool falcon presentation. Then we rode camels. There was sand boarding inside the camp site (I was too tired to climb the hill). We had appetizer wraps (chicken and veggie while we waited for the buffet). There were cold non-alcoholic beverages included for free. Alcohol was available for purchase. There was a hookah (free) section, henna (free) and souvenir shop. There were several other performances at the camp site (fire performance, belly dancing, etc). The buffet was pretty good and our evening concluded around 9pm. It was a fun filled experience that I’d definitely recommend!!! The tour company was well organized and our driver was very nice/professional!!

    This trip far exceeded our expectations. Helped by an incredible driver Mustava. He was early for our hotel pick up in a very smart 4x4, we were early too so that worked well. He gave us a fascinating insight into the development of Dubai and its many different areas. The hours drive in the dark passed very quickly and our excitement built as we entered the desert. Mustava released the air pressure in the tyres and we were off. We got to a very secluded spot where breakfast and Arabian coffee was set out for us. A party of four joined us from one of Orient’s other vehicles and we settled down to watch the sunrise - which was spectacular and well worth losing sleep for. We then had a most enjoyable Falcon demonstration before getting back into the cars for a blast across, up, down and along the massive sand dunes. What a laugh. Mustava has us at ease and was amazingly proficient at controlling the car. 10/10 doesn’t do this trip justice. Great work to all the Orient team.
