Abu Dhabi Desert Morning Safari: 4x4 Dune Bash, Camel Ride and Sandboarding
Dune driving, camel riding, and sandboarding: some pursuits are only possible—or at their best—in the desert. This Abu Dhabi experience lets you capitalize on the desert’s sporting opportunities: allowing you to experience all three in the morning's relative cool. Enjoy a 4x4 dune bash, ride a camel, and go sandboarding, all with refreshments and hotel transfers provided, and an afternoon kept free to pack more into your day.
What to Expect
Meet your driver-guide at your Abu Dhabi hotel and settle inside a comfortable, climate-controlled vehicle bound for the desert.

Gaze at the sands along the way and arrive at a Bedouin-style camp with a range of desert pursuits on offer. Then, set out on a 4x4 dune bash with a trained driver at the wheel. Enjoy the adrenaline rush as you career up the slopes before sliding back down—it’s a serious thrill.

Back at camp, refuel with sodas and chilled water, and experience two other activities. Ride a camel over the sands and try one of the desert’s most popular sports—sandboarding. Pick up a sandboard, get instructions, and then take on the dunes: surfing the slopes as if on a snow board.

Your experience then ends with a hotel drop-off.

Please note: the order of activities described above may change on the day of your tour.

Sunrise Liwa Safari with Salim

Excellent time with our driver Salim. He took us into the desert early in the morning to catch sunrise on the dunes. An absolutely amazing experience I was able to share with my friends! Driver, car, and dunes were amazing. 10/10 trip.

I simply used the Trip Advisor booking. I was worried because I know that some outfits take your money and never show up. But this group was exactly on time, and gave us a great tour.
