Desert Safari With Barbeque

Leave the noise and modernity of the city behind for a while, and enjoy this thrilling, spectacular desert safari. The trip combines the breathtaking natural beauty of shifting sand dunes and the roller-coaster excitement of dune bashing, with an insight into traditional Bedouin culture - and some delicious food.

The dazzling modernity of cities like Dubai and Abu Dhabi can be captivating – but don't miss your chance to experience an important and significant part of the Emirates: the vast, sandy desert. On our exhilarating half-day desert safari with barbecue we will whisk you away from all the noise and bustle of the city into another world – a place of beauty, vast open spaces, incredible dunes and ancient Arabic culture – along with some delicious food.

As you head off into the desert in our sturdy, off-road 4x4 vehicles, you will encounter the incredible majesty of towering golden-red sand dunes shimmering in the sunlight and extending as far as the eye can see. This breathtaking scenery magically changes before your eyes as the desert winds shift the sands and the sun travels across the sky, revealing a rich palette of different colours, textures and contrasts.

Once you've taken in this incredible landscape, it's time for the exhilaration and adrenaline of dune bashing, a thrilling roller-coaster ride over the sand dunes. A whirlwind of excitement and delight will culminate with a stop at the top of the highest dune, where you will witness the magical spectacle of a fiery desert sunset.

The next stop on your desert safari will be the home of the traditional inhabitants of this remarkable environment – the Bedouin. In the heart of the desert you will enjoy a warm welcome – and refreshments – from these most hospitable of people. Bedouins have roamed the Arabian deserts for centuries, developing a rich and interesting wealth of music, dance and culture which they are only too happy to share.

Immerse yourself in the Bedouin culture with a Henna design on your hands or feet, or by donning traditional clothes. Partake in the rich and various flavours of the hookah or hubbly-bubbly, the traditional Middle Eastern water pipe for smoking. You can even enjoy a camel ride through the desert. Your trip culminates with a delicious barbecue buffet, next to a roaring desert camp fire and accompanied by traditional music, dancing and entertainment – the perfect end to a wonderful desert adventure.
