A chance to get up close and personal with the Bedouin way of life, a desert safari is a must-have experience for both visitors and residents. Journey into the heart of Abu Dhabi’s picturesque and serene desert landscape and take in its vast expanse, leaving the city’s bustle behind. Swoop past the capital’s megastructures and watch its futuristic skyline melt into golden sands and desert dunes. Choose from morning, afternoon and overnight tours, and prepare to take a step back in time to experience life in the desert as it was decades ago.

A professional guide, who also doubles as your driver, will lead you into the Al Khatim desert in the comfort of a luxury Land Cruiser. Feel the adrenaline surge as you climb up sandy peaks and slide down dunes. After you’ve had your thrills, you’ll be welcomed into a Bedouin-inspired reserve, complete with private tents, and treated to a selection of refreshments. 

While at the reserve, you can take your pick from a selection of activities. Morning safari-goers can test their sandboarding skills and surf down the slopes after a safety briefing from an instructor. You can also hop on a camel and enjoy a short ride over the sands.

If you opt for the afternoon safari, you’re in for a treat as you get to experience the desert, both by day and night. After an exciting dune bashing adventure, you will be ushered to the local camel farm to witness these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat. You can then settle down to watch a magical sunset among the desert dunes before feasting on a sumptuous barbecue dinner. Enjoy an evening filled with cultural activities including henna painting, shisha and watch a belly dancer perform to Arabic tunes.

The overnight safari experience gives you the chance to enjoy a memorable sleepover beneath a thick blanket of stars. Wake up to a gourmet breakfast with the aroma of authentic Arabic coffee in the air and enjoy a morning filled with activities including dune bashing, sandboarding and camel trekking.
