An exciting adventure that you and your friends and family will enjoy. Get the thrill of a roller coaster ride over the golden sand dunes of Abu Dhabi with our trained drivers. This is an experience you should never miss when you're in UAE.

  • Wide lineup of activities: dune bash, camel ride, sandboarding, and more
  • Barbecue dinner and belly dance show for full Arabian Nights experience
  • Round-trip 4WD transfers and other inclusions for comfort and convenience
What to Expect
After pickup from your Abu Dhabi hotel, sink into a climate-controlled 4WD Land Cruiser and travel to the Al Khatim area of the desert, known for its beautiful dunes. Upon arrival, set off on an exciting dune bash with a trained driver at the wheel. Enjoy the thrill of sliding down the dunes and stop on a high dune for photos of the sunset. Next, drive to a Bedouin-inspired camp, where a wide range of activities awaits. Hop out and throw yourself into the fun as you wish. Try sandboarding, take a camel ride, get a henna tattoo inked on your hands, choose to puff on a shisha (Arabic water pipe), and more. As darkness falls, watch a belly dancing show and savor an Arabian-style barbecue-buffet dinner with unlimited soda, water, coffee, tea and dates. Additional types of drinks are available to purchase. Your trip then ends with a hotel drop-off.
