About
Abu Dhabi’s desert is a must-see for visitors, but going off-road into the sands isn’t recommended for first-timers. This afternoon-and-evening expedition steps in: delivering everything from dune exploration to tasters of Bedouin culture and dinner, all in one safe and effortless trip. Go dune bashing and sand boarding; enjoy traditional Bedouin activities at a desert camp; and conclude with a barbecue dinner and live shows before heading back.

A fantastic experience; highly recommend
Mar 2020
This Abu Dhabi safari was really the highlight tour in the UAE for us. The activities were awesome and the company was incredibly professional. We booked through Costco and there was an issue but that was Costco's fault. After it got sorted out it was amazing. We sandboarded, ate at a Bedouin-style bbq (so delicious!), had camel rides, went dune-bashing. I felt it was great value and a great experience and can't recommend it enough. If you go, ask for Imran to be your tour guide. He's knowledgeable, friendly AND he takes amazing photos. Top marks all around!

Great experience in the desert - must visit for anyone
Mar 2020
The Safari was just great. If you visit UAE, you definitely need to choose this excursion as it is a typical local fun for tourists which is worth visiting. Our guide Biju was amazing. He drives perfectly and we had much fun in our Toyota. He also was making fantastic photos of us during the tour. And it's all included in this tour.
Highly recommend this tour to enjoy not only the desert safari but super fun sandboarding and camel riding.
The evening show and dinner were also great.
Thanks a lot for this. And many thanks for Biju!!!!!

Absolutely a great trip! Highly recommended!
We stayed in Abu Dhabi for 10 days and booked the Desert Safari.
It was such an amazing experience and we had an unforgettable day with our great tour guide Faisel.
He picked us up from our hotel on time and informed us beforehand about the exact pickup time. We were a group of 6 people and went to a camel farm before we went for the dune bashing! It was soooo much fun! Afterwads we went for sandboarding and Faisel took amazing pictures of us in the desert. He did such a great job and made everything for providing us an unforgettable day in the desert.
Before sundown we arrived in a typical camp and had the possibility for a camel ride. In the evening they prepared a great BBQ with very delicous regional food.
The Food was great and we had a good dancing show at the end.
To sum it up: we had a fantastic and exciting day in the desert with our amazing tour guide Faisel who made the day to an unforgettable experience!!! Thanks a lot!!!

...and it is a „must do“ once you are in Abu Dhabi!!
