Private Desert Safari in Dubai with BBQ Dinner, Sandboarding & More
Supplied by: Orient Tours

Make the most of the gorgeous desert on this unforgettable desert safari in Dubai, as you immerse yourself in the Arab entertainment and a mouth-watering BBQ dinner.


  • Take in the views of the golden desert landscape as your guide drives across the mesmerising dunes 
  • Visit a camel farm in the heart of the desert and enjoy a short camel ride
  • Find your balance as you try out sandboarding
  • Get a henna tattoo on your hands or feet, if you wish 
  • Enjoy a delicious BBQ dinner under the stars whilst immersing yourself in incredible local entertainment


This tour departs in the afternoon and takes you across the Arabian Desert with exceptional photo opportunities waiting during an exciting dune drive. You'll enjoy a stop at a camel farm to learn about these ‘Ships of the Desert’ before continuing to the next highlight.

Witness a spectacular sunset upon reaching the traditional Arabian campsite where you will be welcomed with Gahwa (Arabic coffee) and local dates. Experience camel riding, sand boarding and get a henna tattoo before trying the Arabic water-pipe called shisha.

As by that time you could probably use some refuelling, have a quick bite of a Shawarma or a falafil sandwich, before settling in to admire the evening's live entertainment. The Tanoura dance, a mesmerizing traditional folk dance, is followed by an awe-inspiring fire blower show. Take a quick break from the visual extravaganza and satisfy your taste buds with a delicious barbecue dinner thereafter. The evening comes to an end after an enthralling belly dance is performed under the starlit sky.

Your adventure concludes with a ride back to the city, during which you can recap your action-packed day.
