All about the trip
This Dubai desert tour will give you a taste of the Bedouin lifestyle from a bygone era!
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 Lahbab Desert. Once you've arrived at Lahbab, there will be a nice 20-minute break to prepare for the activity. During this time the captain will check the vehicle and go over safety procedures with you and your group. The crimson dunes are endless, and the captain will take you to the peak of the dune, and let the Land Cruise fall gently down, giving you a feeling of being suspended in time. If vehicles aren't for you, you can try your hand at surfing the dunes by sandboarding! Slide down the dunes at rapid speed and race your friends to catch the best "surf" in the desert.
After about 45 minutes of dune bashing, the captain will take you to the Al Khayma desert camp. When you arrive, the guide will lead you to your tent also known as a Khayma. Feel as though you've transported to the tale of "One Thousand and One Nights," dates and coffee will be there to greet you for a warm Arabian welcome. In the desert, you will have the opportunity to try a multitude of activities such as camel riding at sunset, trying on traditional Arab attire, receive a henna tattoo, and have your photos taken with the breathtaking sunset behind you!
As the evening continues, the dancing entertainment will begin! The traditional Tanoura dancers will dazzle you with their colorful costumes and hypnotic twirling. As you watch the performance you can dine on a delicious buffet filled with BBQ meats. After the Tanoura dancing, the Ladies Khaliji Dance will begin! During this time you can enjoy your delicious desserts and watch the mesmerizing women perform their ancient dance.
At the end of the evening, the lights will be turned down low, creating a sultry ambiance. This is the perfect time for stargazing, as the crimson dunes turn to silver the evening takes on a cool tranquil atmosphere. Relax by yourself or with loved ones as you think about the incredible day you've had at the camp. If you feel tired from all of the excitement of the day, you can go back to your tent and sleep. If you wish, you can be woken up about 20 minutes till the sunrise to witness the beauty of the dunes changing color. You can also decide if you would like to ride a camel during the sunrise. The world is your oyster while at the Al Khayma desert camp. As the morning progresses, you can enjoy a delicious breakfast before your guide returns you to your hotel in Dubai.Bedouin Wikipedia
