Abu Dhabi Evening Desert Safari
Going off-road into the UAE desert alone is a no-no for safety reasons, making a guided tour the best option for a full Bedouin camp experience. This trip puts it on a plate with a 4WD dune bash, camel ride, sandboarding, belly dancing displays, and a barbecue buffet dinner in the sands. Plus, it offers optional quad biking (additional cost) and return transfers to give you the full works.
What to Expect
After pickup from your Abu Dhabi hotel or Abu Dhabi port, relax into a 4WD Land Cruiser for the approximately 45-minute journey to the Al Khatim Desert, known for its rolling, empty dunes.

On arrival, head to a camel farm for a short camel ride. Then, experience an exhilarating dune bash, as your driver takes your 4WD vehicle up and over the slopes at speed.

Pause on a dune for photos of the sunset and continue to a Bedouin-inspired camp. Here, after Arabic coffee and fresh dates, choose from the activities on offer. Grab a sandboard to surf the dunes, get a henna tattoo on your hands, try a shisha (Arabic water pipe), and more. Plus, if you wish, take off on a quad bike (additional cost) across the sands.

Finally, enjoy a belly dancing show and barbecue buffet dinner before returning to Abu Dhabi, where your experience concludes.
