Jet across the sand dunes

Dune bashing is a quintessential experience for all desert safari trips. Hop into a 4WD and bash across those sand dunes with bae by your side. This thrilling experience of slipping, sliding and skidding is definitely not for the faint hearted. Grip on tight to bae’s hand and get ready for lots of sand.

Klook insider tips:

  • Bring a pair of shades – with such high speeds and a ton of sand, you can definitely expect lots of sand before you get into the vehicle
  • Try to secure the front passenger seat or window seat for the best views

Ride off into the sunset

Another Dubai essential experience is of course a camel ride in the desert. Do it like the Bedouin did in the olden days and ride on the Ship of the Desert while you take in the tranquility of the vast deserts. Share a camel with bae and enjoy the smooth ride into the sunset.

Race bae across the desert on a sandboard

Just like snowboarding, you’ll be strapped on to a board as you slide down and across the sand dunes. There’s nothing like a bit of friendly competition to spice up your relationship. We suggest racing across the desert on a sandboard, loser does dishes for a week!

Unwind over dinner and dance

After the whole day out on the sands, you’ll definitely be starving and in need of some downtime. Explore the Bedouin Camp and get a henna painting done, smoke some shisha or sit down and catch the belly dance and tanoura show. We bet you’re starving by this point so fuel up with a BBQ dinner buffet!

Sleep under the stars

Finally, retreat for the night as you lay under the stars in a traditional Arabic tent! Enjoy the cool desert breeze as you lay on your pillows and wait for the stars. On a clear night, you might even be able to spot the milky way!
