We took the afternoon and evening desert safari.
The organisation was smooth, the dune bashing was great and wild with good thrills. You notice that the drivers are experienced and know how far to push the cars to and over the 'edge'. We never felt unsafe and had great fun. (I'd wish my wife would enjoy it the same way when I want to play and look for the limits driving on fresh snow...)
The camel farm visit, the sand surfing, and the evening spent at the campment was great, with a good BBQ, henna painting for the kids, shisha for all and some animation.
Overall good value and an excellent idea to spend a great half day in Abu Dhabi or Dubai!
Recommended.

We took an evening Desert Safari with Camel watching, Sand bashing, Camel Riding, Sand boarding, Buffet and Belly Dancing. The Land Cruisers were very new, the drivers professional and the ride great! The sand dunes between Abu Dhabi and Al Ain were really nice! It is amazing how the drivers can keep up the speed in the dunes and still be steady.

We did the morning trip on the Quad Bikes in the desert. After the drive to the desert camp, we spent a good hour in the dunes following our guide on quad bikes. Great fun, good instruction, and only the three of us around to enjoy the desert.
Great fun and a great way to see the desert while in Abu Dhabi.
Can highly recommend if you want to get out into the desert in a small group....

Yesterday we have taken part in a desert safari. This was really one of the best experience we ever had. Our guide, Azeez, is really a great driver. We have had a lot of fun and have always felt safe.
Azeez explained a lot of things about Abu Dhabi and the Emirates.
We can and will recommend this tour to everyone.
We thanking Azeez again for his excellent job.

I wish that I had done more research into Dune Bashing! It was alright for the first 20-30 minutes but after that our driver got more and more full on with the experience and I ended up motion sick and on the verge of fainting. Over an hour of flying up and down dunes, afraid that the 4WD was going to roll on the way down the dune was WAY too much for me and my husband.
After that we were too I'll upon reaching the camp to take advantage of any of the additional activities on offer, driving ATV's, camel rides, hens, shisha pipe, dressing up.
Once we recovered it was a lovely evening under the stars, the meal was delicious and the belly dancer entertaining.
I just wish that there had been an option to be able to go straight to camp in one of the other vehicles if the dune bashing got too much.
