Overview
Experience a host of exciting desert activities and a BBQ dinner on this 6-hour, desert camp expedition from Abu Dhabi, including round-trip transport. Travel to a Bedouin-inspired camp amid the dunes, and throw yourself into the traditional Emirati activities on offer. Enjoy a 4x4 dune-bashing adventure; try sand boarding, camel riding, Henna Painting, Sheesha Smoking; watch belly Dance show; and much more. Rent a quad bike (additional cost) if you wish, and finish with a tasty BBQ.
Highlights
  • Abu Dhabi desert experience with dune bash and dinner
  • Visit Al Khatim, one of the UAE’s top regions of dunes 
  • Multiple activities: dune bashing, sandboarding, and camel rides
  • Emirati-Western BBQ dinner, plus unlimited soda and water at camp
  • Optional quad biking (own expense)
  • Hotel and central pickup and drop-off by 4x4 for comfort and convenience
What to Expect
After pickup in central Abu Dhabi or your hotel, travel by shared 4x4 Toyota Land Cruiser toward the Al Khatim region. Admire the views as you hear about UAE’s culture on route, and after about 45 minutes, join a caravan of other 4x4s for a dune bash. Ride up and over the dunes and visit a camel farm to observe the desert animals. Then, continue to a Bedouin-inspired desert camp, and after Arabic coffee and dates, or a soda, tea, or water, take your pick of the desert activities. Ride a camel, go sandboarding, get a henna tattoo, dress in Arabic robes for a souvenir photo, or take a quad bike ride (own expense). Then, watch a belly dancing show and savor a barbecue dinner of Emirati and Western dishes under the stars. Your experience concludes back at the original departure point.

We booked the excursion through our hotel in Abu Dhabi. The driver who takes you on the excursion drives to you in the car that is used for the dessert safari. I don't actually know of any buses, sorry
