Dubai Desert safari
This Dubai desert tour will familiarize you with the fascinating traditional desert life! Dubai Go tours tour leader will pick you up at the hotel, or at the agreed location, in a 4×4 Land Cruiser and you will be driven to the Lahbah desert. Along the way, they will explain to you how the cosmopolitan city that Dubai is today was long ago a small town, which has been transforming into a city that today sets trends. Upon arrival in the Lahbah desert, you will have a short break of between 20 and 25 minutes while your Land Cruiser is prepared for driving through the desert. In addition, you will have the optional possibility of riding your own quad.
You’ll be right in the middle of the Dubai desert dunes, enjoying driving through the peculiar red dunes of the Lahbab desert! After 30 – 40 minutes touring the dunes, we will keep your adrenaline at the highest level, since you will be the one who descends the desert dunes doing sandboarding !. After that, we will head to al-Khayma camp.
Upon entering the camp, our tour leader will show you the main sites (where the main activities take place) and you will be invited to a table inside a Khayma (tent). You can enjoy an unlimited amount of non-alcoholic beverages there while wearing traditional Arab outfits (Abaya for women, Kandora for men). You will also be welcome with Gahwa and Gaymat (Arab coffee and sweets). We hope that this will refresh you and be ready for the next activity: riding a camel.
You can now experience a camel ride, “the ship of the desert”, while watching the sunset from a dune with special views. Capture these pretty views with your camera! You can use the free time afterwards to explore the entire Al-khayma camp, and especially its activities about traditional Bedouin life, such as Henna tattoos, smoking shisha, wearing the same clothes as Bedouins (Abaya / Kandora), meet a falcon expert and pose with this majestic bird.
Now time for nightly entertainments! The Tanoura dance will be performed on the central stage. Immediately afterwards you will be invited to a free buffet, where you will find delicious desserts to taste once you have finished with the great diversity of dishes made on the barbecue. The belly dance will be the last show.
After all this, rest. The camp lights will go out completely to recreate a typical desert night once all activities are over. Meditating is a very good option. Look at the vast sky and if you are lucky you will see a few stars!
Finally, you will return to the selected hotel or location.
