About
Crack the must-try desert activities in Abu Dhabi with ease on this morning tour. Rather than brave the afternoon heat, take advantage of the morning’s cooler climes and ride a 4WD deep into an area of dunes you couldn’t access independently. Then, take a chauffeured dune bash, try sand boarding, and experience a Bedouin-style camel ride. Upgrade to a private tour option—in your own 4WD—if you wish.

Follow the instructions and glide over the dunes as you see how simple it really is. During the safari there will be plenty of opportunity to pose for some photos in the desert.

Faizy was a very good guide, driver and Photographer ;) he took care of all tour members and recognized when the dune bashing was too much for anyone. Our favorite part was that Faizy took very nice photos from our own phones. All in all we really recommend this tour.

Everything was great. We received all practical information in advance on whatsapp, and were picked up at our hotel. The tour guide Shafeel was indeed professional, skilled driver, and shared interesting information about the desert. He was also outgoing and willing to take as many photos as we wanted. We enjoyed the dune bashing, sandboarding and camel ride. Highly recommend this tour.

Nadeer was our driver and he was fantastic! Driving over the dunes was crazy, sand bording was super fun and the camel farm and ride was amazing too. When we stopped to take photos Nadeer helped us get some great group shots. He was very friendly and the car we were in was clean and nice. I would really recommend this tour with this company because it’s amazing value for money considering the amount that’s packed into the morning!

I did the morning tour on Wednesday the 8th January, and I enjoyed the whole morning. The tour guide, Faisal, made the experience comfortable by showing consideration and sharing his time with each member of his group. The 4WD over the dunes was a thrill and the interaction with the camels was exciting.

I would happily choose a tour with OceanAir Travels again in the future. If you’re a solo traveller this should be your choice of company, as they are very accommodating.

Thanks again!

Very well organized tour. You'll get an update about the estimated pick-up time so you don't have to wait for long. The driver and guide Rafeek was not just friendly and accommodating but also helping out taking photos for the guests. His driving in the dunes was both extreme fun but also always safe. The car was in good condition. In addition of 100 AED you can rent an ATV for some extra fun time. I'd definitely recommend taking that trip. Thanks!

Afsan was an AMAZING tour guide. He let us play our music in the car the whole time, was a safe driver for dune bashing, & took lots of photos for us throughout the expedition including for the camel rides & sand boarding. He was flexible with our schedule as we were able to add on 10 minutes on ATVs for 100 AED once we were there as well. Can't say enough good things about Afsan! Highly recommend the whole experience, everyone loved it.

We had an excellent dessert tour with our guide Hamza. He also took very beautiful pictures of our group, they look like from a professional photographer. The dune bashing was so much fun and we would do it again every time. At the camp we got some cold drinks and we enjoyed the camel riding. We only can recommend the tour!

My family and I went on a four hour desert safari in the morning with our guide NADEER. Nadeer is a five star guide with incredible patience. He took all the time in the world to allow my young children to take in the experience and sand board down a hill as many times as they wanted to. The trip consist of a visit to a camel farm where my kids enjoyed feeding camels, dune bashing and sand boarding. As a bonus you also get a camel ride to end the trip. The entire tour was not rushed and Nadeer made us all feel at ease. He explained everything at all times and most importantly, he let us enjoy the experience to the fullest without rushing us. Nadeer is also an amazing photographer (see attached photo) and he took as many photos as you wanted without complaining a bit. Fantastic guide. My family thoroughly enjoyed the experience and I fully recommend it to anyone traveling to Abu Dhabi. I booked the trip online and we communicated with the tour company personnel via WhatsApp thus, making the entire experience seamless. Big thumbs up to Oceanair Travels and Nadeer.

We had a great trip. All steps (pick up, drive, camel ride and sandboarding) were super well planned and everything worked well.
The driver was very kind, helpful and always checked whether everything was going well and took good care of us. ( he was also a very very good fotographer ;), he made really great pictures of us). He drived us safe during the desert.
The car with air condition was very comfortable.
I would definitely book this trip with again with the driver shafee.
