This was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. It was also one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. Even doing the beginners course was quite physical and mentally hard but one of the biggest Adrenalin rushes I’ve had.
If you haven’t done this before be prepared to fall off…but really it doesn’t hurt that much landing in the sand. The bikes themselves are very well kept and seriously powerful. The tour guide and the driver were very friendly and even though it was ramadan and they were fasting they were understanding in giving us water. They also let us into the desert camp. cannot wait to book our next Tour.
This was awesome – about a 40 minute drive out of Dubai.
You meet basically on the side of the road in the desert, so you’ll need a GPS so you can find the place, via coordinates. A 4WD picks you up on the roadside and takes you to the camp. I have quite a bit of trail riding experience but not much sand work, but I picked it up after some good advice from our guide and about 15 minutes of riding.
We did the 4 hour trip – it was unreal!! I would do a layover in Dubai just to do this again!

CAMPING OVERNIGHT IN TENTS
Extend your heritage experience in Dubai with an overnight stay at a unique desert camp. Take a step back in time and experience Dubai as it was 50 years ago.
Watch the sun drop under the horizon as a falcon soars above you. Your Bedouin camp, lit with the gentle flames of traditional lamps, is nestled inside a private royal desert retreat.

Camp Safari Falcon
Discover the beautiful red desert landscape on the outskirts of Dubai on a 3 to 6-hour evening tour to a Bedouin camp. Enjoy breathtaking views of the desert dunes, and entertaining activities upon arrival at the camp.
Upon arrival, stop for about 15 minutes for some warm-up-for safari things such as deflating your 4×4’s tires to suit the desert ride. Take a restroom break before going into the desert while our team are waiting to catch up the convoy, or spend that time enjoying optional Quad bike ride.
Then, drive across the desert red dunes on a thrilling 4WD dune bashing activity. If you are feeling truly adventurous, opt for the high dunes option where the level of the dunes is increased.
Once you are done with dune bashing, stop in the heart of Dubai desert to try a hand at desert sandboarding. If you already know skating or snow-boarding, it will come easily to you – just stand on the board provided and glide over the soft & smooth sand dunes. You’ll find this even more effortless than snowboarding! Conquer more dunes with your board and experience the thrills.
Enjoy a panoramic view of the sunset (Not Guaranteed-Chance 50% to catch it in desert before the camp), before going to an authentic Arabic camp. Experience a traditional Arabic welcome of coffee and dates, and learn more about the culture through multiple activities and entertainments. Relax in the beautiful Bedouin encampment, and watch traditional tanura dance shows, belly dancing, and more.
Take a ride around the desert sands on the back of a camel (a short ride which can be repeated). Get a traditional henna painting on your hands, or smoke a shisha pipe to get into the spirit of the Arabians. You are invited to put on traditional costumes for a souvenir photo. You can even get a photo taken with a falcon on your shoulder!
Then, enjoy a gourmet barbecue of Arabian treats. There will be a variety of BBQ cuisines to select like the Shawarma, Kebabs, Salads and all. Feast yourself under a canopy of stars.
