What you will do...

Want to explore the beautiful desert terrain of Abu Dhabi? Come along for the “Magic of Arabia” excursion, which is also known as a Half-Day Safari or Evening safari. This 6-hour Desert Safari tour begins in the afternoon by meeting at the location (click on Meeting Point) and switching into the company’s 4×4 WD land cruisers. Once seat belts are buckled, the expert desert driver heads towards the Al Ain road, which is about 45 minutes from the city. The adventure begins in the Al Khatem desert with 45 minutes of thrilling and exhilarating dune bashing in the tall sand dunes! Enjoy a stop at a camel farm to take photos and learn more about camels. Also, the driver will take you up a tall dune and stop so you can step out into the sand and marvel at the stunning Arabian sunset.  

After the dune bashing ride, you will be driven to the desert camp area where you are welcomed with traditional Arabic hospitality: dates and Arabic guava (coffee). There are camels at the camp for you to experience a camel ride! Also, if you are looking for more adventure, try sandboarding – this is a sand-surfing sport where you can stand or sit on a board and glide down a dune! Enjoy lovely refreshments: unlimited soft drinks, water, tea, and coffee. To get into the true spirit, try dressing up in traditional Arabic costumes and hold a Falcon for pictures! True to Arabic culture, fragrant Shisha (Arabic water pipe) is available to smoke as is henna painting. Onsite, there are also 4×4 WD quad bikes, and dune buggys, available for an extra cost. Also available for additional charges is an open alcohol bar.

Come enjoy the true experience of Abu Dhabi by exploring its desert, camp, and camels!
