All about the trip
This Abu Dhabi Desert tour will give you a taste of the most exciting desert activities that the UAE has to offer! The tour will begin with our safari captain picking you up from your hotel in a 4X4 Land Cruiser. From there you will be driven to the Abu Dhabi desert. Once you've arrived at the desert there will be a short break for the captain to prepare the vehicle for the dune bashing activity.
During this time the captain will review safety procedures with you and the group. The feeling of being suspended in the air as you ride the dune from crest to base is an exhilarating experience! Next, you can try your hand at sandboarding, a product of Emirati ingenuity! Strap on the board and begin the race to the bottom, sandboarding is low-impact which makes this sport perfect for everyone. As you glide to the bottom, the captain will be there to catch your best moments on camera.
After the desert activities have come to a close, it will be time to make the journey to the desert camp. This camp is like an oasis in the heart of the endless desert! Soak in the tranquility of the campsite and experience a warm Arabian welcome with sweet dates and coffee. Experience the Bedouin lifestyle by engaging in activities such as henna painting, shisha smoking, trying on traditional costumes, and camel riding! The possibilities seem endless while in the desert. If you prefer to relax, you can lounge on plush cushions and feast on a lavish BBQ dinner of kebabs, shawarma, and salad. During dinner, there will be a traditional folk Tanoura dance as well as a belly dancing show! Allow yourself to be mesmerized by the dancers' hypnotic movements and colorful costumes. After an incredible day in the Abu Dhabi desert, it will be time to head back to your hotel, leaving the vast desert behind you.Sandboarding Wikipedia
