          I highly recommend to visit this place in Al Ain. Pricing is fair and transparent. My kids loved it and they enjoyed a lot playing with the animals and most especially their feeding time.

          A must-do experience when in Abu Dhabi
          The evening safari tour was amazing - Dune-bashing, camel-riding, sand-boarding, star-gazing, BBQ-feasting in the middle of a desert! Our tour guide Faisel was friendly and took care of us well! A must-do experience when in Abu Dhabi!

          AMAZING experience! This was our first time in the UAE and the tour was exactly what I was looking for. We opted for pick up from hotel and then we were off to the desert. Dune bashing was fun and slightly terrifying. Sand boarding is way harder than it looks and the desert was hot, but worth the experience. Would do this again 100%

        11.02 This day will remain in your memory for a long time❤️
        We visited the desert of Abu Dhabi, where we got acquainted with the local nature, customs and traditions. And I want to say, we returned from there charged with unrealistic energy and are set to continue to study this incredible Emirate further. In addition to all, I want to thank @iranirockz who controlled not only the car, but also had a fun evening, showed the beauty of Abu Dhabi, made incredibly cool photos that you are looking at now. Those who plan to come here, now you know who to contact @iranirockz
        I want to come back here again and again 🙏🏻

        The tour was great. We spent a really nice morning in the desert. Faizy was taking photos for us all the time so we could enjoy the sunrise and the desert in general. I can recommend doing this tour to everyone who wants to see the desert but maybe not spend a whole day there.

        It was a so wonderful, unforgettable trip. We was very excited about out our driver, Nadeen. On the way to the desert told us a lot of interesting facts about the history etc. In the desert he drives excellent, it was a pleasure for my wife and me to see, how he mastered all the difficulties in the parcour. In my opinion he is one of the best driver and everybody can be in trust with him in the car. There was a nice Foto point in the desert. Nadeen helps us to find good positions and made great fotos of us. Finally, in the evening there was a traditional dinner and the possibility for a lot of different activities in the desert. Camel riding, skating etc. The final of this very good activity was dance performances. We both was more than happy and satisfied. We everybody recommend this tour.

        We were picked up really early (on time) but it was so worthwhile. The sun rise in the desert was a very special experience, even more so since we were a very small group, only 4 people. It felt like we had the whole desert just for us. Faizy, our guide and driver was a real pro, we always felt safe during the dune bashing, which was a lot of fun. He also knew how to take the best pictures. We can fully recommend this tour.

        Had a morning tour with Unni, picked us up from our Abu Dhabi hotel on time and with one other party drove into the desert (about 45 mins). The dune bashing was great fun and whilst scary, Unni's driving was very skilled.
        Had about 15 mins up and down various dunes before stopping for photos. Then another 5-10 mins to the camp where we rode a camel for a few minutes and then tried sand surfing (with limited success due to our own balancing skills!) Was a perfect taste of adventure in the desert and we had a great time!

        This was a very special opportunity. The chance to see the desert in the early morning, and to share some fun moments with camels, was unlike anything I've ever experienced. Our guide Faizy was fantastic, and I would absolutely recommend this for anyone who wants to have a unique experience with great natural beauty.

        Faizy was our tour guide and he was amazing. Took great photos and knew all the right angles and timing. We did the sunrise tour and we had such a great time. Great comms with the tour company - quick response and they msg through whatsapp.

        Highly recommend doing early sunrise when the desert is untouched and quiet. You get to play around with sandboard, have some coffee and dates, and get a short 2 min camel ride. We didnt know we'd be 4wd-ing around the sand dunes, bro told us to buckle up our seat belt and off we went, so thrilling! Whole tour perfectly all done within 3 hours, not too short but just long enough to get a taste of everything. Thank you faizy!!!

        Such a fantastic way to start the day - truly magical!
        Our driver, Faizy was punctual at early morning pickup to drive us to our destination in the desert.
        There was no-one else around which really made it extra special as we stared in awe at the wonderful sunrise and the changing colours of the sands.
        Faizy was also very obliging in taking lots of photos to capture the memories.
        Magical!

        One of the unforgettable things that happened during our trip. Something to remember for life! Everything starting from the moment trip started till the end was well planned and greatly executed by our guide, incredible driver and amazing photographer Faizy, who helped us through and throughout! Drinking Arabic coffee in the middle of desert was another type of pleasure.The camel ride was unforgettable. And not to even mention sand surfing🤩 felt like a movie (if you know what I mean 😉#dune)

        The early morning was a Awsome way to get out and see the desert. We were picked up at the exact time indicated. And then drove out into the desert in the dark. As the darkness was lifting the dune bashing began. Our driver had us set up with plenty of time to watch the sunrise from start to finish. The morning was complete with a quick camel ride and a tea. There were only 3 vehicles and only 4 of us in the out car. There was enough time meltdown to enjoy each section without it lagging on. It was the right pace for us with other plans to get back to. The dune bashing was Awsome and showed the skills of the drivers. Thanks.
