Here you can not only ride camels. In addition, a great grill buffet, Arabic snacks and drinks, shishas and many small shows await you here. All-inclusive, If, on the other hand, you are not into the full tourist program in the camp, you can also book the shorter tour and drive straight back to the hotel after sunset.

Quad bike safari for active people

In short, on the quad bike safari you drive into the desert in the usual jeeps, but from here you have to saddle up and drive yourself. Together with your guide, you will drive the agile quads through the spectacular desert landscape around Dubai. Previous knowledge not absolutely necessary.

Premium safari with VIP service

The Desert Safari in Dubai are of course available in all price ranges. Currently, prices for a day in the desert start at just under € 20.

If you opt for a premium safari, you can look forward to an authentic day in the desert in a small group. Basically, all activities in the desert are already included in the price of the expensive tours and you can look forward to the appropriate service in the camp. On the so-called premium safaris, the camps are therefore usually a bit smaller and the facilities are much better. Accordingly, these tours are much more relaxed and authentic.
