    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Desert Safari Dubai - Best Dune Bashing Safari, al avir - دبي - United Arab Emirates

    Meet your guide at your central Dubai hotel and board a comfortable air-conditioned 4x4. Enjoy the views as you leave the city skyscrapers behind and set off on your Dubai desert tour. Gaze at the Dubai sands and hear all about the desert’s ecology and its history as you travel. On entering the desert, your guide deflates your tires and takes you on a rollercoaster ride as you crash through the dunes in your off-road vehicle
    After arriving at a traditional camel farm, see the hardy herbivores up close and take a memorable camel ride within the enclosures. Discover more about the different species of camels used in the region, and then return to your 4x4 to continue your desert journey. Get ready to take on the Arabian Desert on a Quad bike. Take in the thrill of driving the quad bike for 20 minutes through the sand dunes in a secured part of the Desert.
    Afterward, arrive at a desert campsite and watch a Falconer demonstrate the hunting skills of the Emiratis’ favorite bird and share in his knowledge about why the magnificent Falcons are so special to the Nation. Watch the beautiful sunset in the desert. You have the opportunity to do camel riding and sand boarding in the Desert campsite.
    Then settle inside the camp as the sun sinks below the dunes and plains. Enjoy the Arabian hospitality with dates, Arabic coffee and the Shisha (the Arabic water pipe). If you wish, ask one of the henna artists to paint a tattoo on one of your hands or feet.Visit our new onsite shawarma station and appetite a Shawarma or Falafil sandwich, both popular local snacks before settling in to watch the evening's live entertainment. A mesmerizing Tanoura traditional folk dance is followed by an enthralling fire blower show. Take a break and enjoy a delicious barbecue dinner. Dig into typical Arabian dishes such as hummus (chickpea dip) and marinated chicken. (See below for a sample menu.) Later a tantalizing belly dance performed under the starlit sky brings the evening to a close.
