Visit Dubai’s most remote desert area known as ‘Lahbab,’ located approximately 50 kilometers outside the city on this 6-hour desert safari. The silky red sand and towering dunes lend Lahbab a unique desert landscape with picture-perfect views of the desert surrounding. This tour is perfect for adventure seekers, families, couples and solo travelers looking for a unique tour combining fun, adventure, nature, and culture.
Start with a pick-up from your hotel in the 4x4 vehicle. After all the guests have been picked up, head straight towards Lahbab. On the almost 45-minute drive, enjoy interesting views of Dubai from the car window and trade the big city with tall skyscrapers, shopping malls and metro/cars for old dusty towns on the outskirts of Dubai and then a completely isolated desert. Let the driver answer any of your questions and learn more about Dubai's history.
Upon arrival in the desert, wait for 20 minutes for your driver to inflate the vehicle's tires so they are better suited to driving on the desert sands then head off-road and into the red dunes. Have a restroom break before heading into the desert whilst the team catches up in the 4x4 convoy. You can also spend that time enjoying an optional quad bike ride.
Then drive across the beautiful red dune desert. Enjoy an adrenaline rush ride as you slide across from one dune to another in the 4x4. Venture deeper into the desert for the best scenic views possible, then stop for a picture on the highest dune at sunset (only 50% guaranteed) and admire beautiful 360 views of the desert landscape as the sun slowly sets down
Try your hands at sand-boarding during the picture-stop. You’ll be able to surf the sand on the never-ending dunes. Guests of all ages are invited to do this activity which does not require any training. Glide and conquer the dunes with sand-boards and experience the wonderful thrills.
Afterwards, visit a Bedouin-style camp hidden in the middle of the desert and enjoy many fun and exciting activities. Hop on a camel for a short ride, try a Shisha pipe, decorate your hands with paintings by Henna tattoo artists, dress up and take pictures in traditional Arabic costumes and even look for the stop at the souvenir stand for finding unique and exotic stuff to buy.
As dusk falls, enjoy scrumptious barbecue dinner of dishes such as kebabs, hummus, and salads accompanied by sodas, mineral water, and additional drinks from the bar. Enjoy a colorful belly dancing show and Tanoura performance, where fast-spinning dancers whirl across the stage along with a captivating fire dance show. There will be Arabian Falcons showcased at the camp as well, so be sure take pictures with them too.
Finally, after the last show, return to Dubai with your driver and enjoy a drop off at your hotel.
