After an exciting desert safari by day, experience the magic of the desert by night...
This extended version of the Desert Safari and Sunset Barbecue tour offers an incredible experience to spend a night in the desert under a blanket of stars. Quite simply unforgettable!
Our guide to Overnight Desert Safari
Riding in a luxury 4-Wheel Drive vehicle, experience the wild majesty of the Arabian Desert as you enjoy the thrill of ‘dune bashing’ – an exciting rollercoaster-of-a-drive over giant sand dunes.
Accompanied by an experienced dune driver, race up giant sand dunes and plunge over blind precipices, provoking shrieks and laughter in equal measure! At sunset, head to the largest dune to watch the full glory of a desert sunset before continuing to a Bedouin Campsite nestled deep in the desert.
On arrival at the Bedouin Campsite there is the chance to ride a camel, try sand surfing or smoke aromatic Shisha (water pipe), as your delicious barbecue dinner is prepared on open fires. Then indulge in a delicious 3-course Arabic feast under a canopy of stars accompanied by an authentic belly dancer and the soft tones of Arabian folk music.
After dinner, you can sit around the open camp fires, smoke more of the hubbly bubbly and chat to the local ‘Bedouin’ people about their way of life and how it has changed since the massive development in Dubai.
After a magical night camping in a Bedouin tent in the silence of the desert, wake up to a desert sunrise and enjoy a breakfast before returning to Dubai at around 9.30am.

This is a FAB trip and a really worthwhile experience. However the regular day time safari would be recommended rather than the overnight trip. At 8pm all entertainment on the camp stopped and everyone began leaving. Our driver told us he would be back in the morning for us and that we could find somewhere to sleep on the seating area around the sides of the camp. On hearing this we made the decision to return back to the city despite having paid an extra £22 per person for the overnight trip. During the trip we also made the decision not to take a camel ride (available as part of the package) because of the poor treatment of the animals. I was very disturbed by what I seen at the camp- kicking and punishment of the camels who looked extremely agitated. Aside from these negatives the trip itself is really great fun however i feel that attraction ticket really need to change there supplier. Furthermore attraction ticket need to update the information on their website which claims you can purchase alcoholic beverages at the camp (you cant!), and to also make people more aware of the sleeping arrangements.
