Overview

Experience thrills, spills and high-octane adventure among the dunes on this morning desert safari from Abu Dhabi. Visit a Bedouin-style camp nestled deep in the desert before the day’s heat kicks in. Ride and roll over the sand by powerful 4x4 vehicle, and feel the wind in your face as you dominate the dunes! Explore the terrain in style on camelback, just like the desert-dwelling Bedouin peoples, and enjoy breathtaking views over the rugged landscape. Test your balance sand boarding down the dunes, then enjoy refreshments back at camp.
  • Enjoy three activities at a Bedouin-style camp before the desert heat cranks up
  • Slip and slide down the dunes on a thrilling 4x4 dune bash
  • Hop aboard a camel for a ride across the sands
  • Take to a sandboard to glide and skid down the steep sandy slopes

Avoid! l3 hours in length including pick up/return . 7 seater 4WD we were picked up last so were squashed in the two rear seats. My seatbelt was broken . Driver gave no commentary. The sand boarding hill wasn't steep enough for anyone to get the boards moving. Camel ride was a 50 metre led circle

Very ordinary tour that lacked fun and surprise. Expensive. The driver/guide was just going through the motions most of the time. The "dune bash" was monotonous and uninteresting, with so-so scenery. The camel ride was all too brief.

I was disappointed that I did not get a private safari for me and my friends. It was rather awkward having a stranger join us. The guide was not willing to wait and let me finish my breakfast at the hotel as I was never told a specific time to be ready. The 4x4 dune bash was fun but anything more than 15 min. was too much. My friends were getting motion sickness and needed to rest afterwards. I didn't bother with the camel ride as I've already done that in Qatar and Egypt. The sand boarding was something new to try but they need to fix the boards. Some of them were not bolted down securely enough for safety reasons. It was unbearably hot before 11 a.m. and we were ready to go back to the hotel.

Excellent value. My tour guide was great and this safari was a lot of fun. I would do it again next time I am in Abu Dhabi. Don't miss this one. All 5 stars all the way.

Good to get out of the city for a few hours and do something a little bit different. The 4x4 dune bashing was fun, but the camel riding and sandboarding weren't great. The camel ride was about 200 yards in a circle and the sandboards were just lying there and we were told to just have a go. Would have been better with a bit of instruction. Not a bad way to spend a few hours, but could be improved.
