Enjoy Dubai's n°1 activity: the desert safari!

The first stop will be at a camel farm, where you'll learn about the particularities of this endearing animal. You will then travel to a remote bedouin camp in the middle of the desert. Here you will be offered various activities: sandboarding, a camel ride or a henna tattoo. You can even smoke a traditional shisha!

As the sun sets in the desert, you will share a delicious BBQ dinner while watching a belly dance show. With family or friends, this outing guarentees a fun time for all! You will be returned to your hotel at the end of an unforgettable day and evening.

  • 1000 Mercis à notre chauffeur : Noor ;) Bien plus qu'un chauffeur, il nous a bichonné, il nous a fait tombé amoureux du désert et de la vie des Emiratis en nous racontant des anecdotes et coutumes locales. Il parle anglais mais très compréhensible pour les novices. Nous avons été récupérés à l'hotel à 15h, puis nous avons fait la route jusqu'au désert (environ 1h de trajet) puis nous avons fait entamé le 4x4 dans le sable (sensations fortes garanties), puis nous avons pu faire des arrêts pour faire des photos avec des chameaux, etc..puis nous avons rejoint le camp où nous avons pu faire du henné, de la chicha, du surf dans les dunes, voir des supers spectacles, et manger au top! Attention prévoir des lunettes de soleil et une casquette, ça cogne fort pour nous les européens...Les enfants ont adoré aussi , donc tout est parfait!! Merci Ceetiiiiz
