  • Saala, did an amazing job. He provided a very safe yet awesome dune bashing experience. He said with our group at every point to assist with taking photo and making sure we had first class experience....  more »
  • An adrenaline-pumping ride through the desert dunes with off-road vehicles, belly dancing, camel ride, all accompanied by food and clothes characteristic of the place. Our guide, Saala, was very professional, friendly and companyal. Definitely to be redone! Highly recommended!

  • I highly recommend this tour. Our driver called Bakru was punctually at our hotel waiting for us. He was super kind and attentive. He drove us for around 45 minutes to the desert to start the dunes driving with stops for photos, always taking care of our safety. If you have any problems with panicking, ask in advance how many people are in your car... In our car we were 5 passengers and the driver... The person sitting behind don't have any window and it can be very sheking during the dunes drive. It was the only inconvenient I found,but Bakru realised it without my remarks and asked someone to change place with me. I give him a 5 star for his attitude! The rest of the tour was as per our expectations... quiet touristic but worth for a half day if you never have done it before.
  • thank you, arabian desrt safari, you made me unforgetable memories in overnight safari :)
  • We used an Entertainer for an Evening Safari. We did not get the VIP package, but had an incredible time. The driver picked us up at our hotel in a Toyota Land Cruiser. He was fun. On our way out, we drove through the dunes (the desert safari), which I'll liken to a one car rollercoaster. Be sure to keep this in mind when planning your day to neither come on an empty stomach nor full. There were two stops along the way. The first was atop a tall dune for evening pictures. The second was to pet some camels at a pen. The camels were very friendly and gentle. The younger one was a little more curious and frisky, but was still a sweetheart. The dinner area was a decent sized compound. The first hour or so, you could wander around to different stations. Bring cash for things like four wheelers and henna tattoos. The souvenir store accepts credit cards, but I don't remember whether the sand bottles accepted cards. You can have your names written in the bottle and personalized in 10-20 minutes. The sand is packed firmly so you don't have to worry about the ride back. A quick camel ride is free and there is a photographer if you do not have your own camera (pictures are an extra charge). Snowboards are available (also for free) to take up the sand dune and ride down. I had a hard time sand boarding and opted to just roll down the dune. Afterwards, I was able to rinse off in the shower in the toilets area. There is a bar with free drinks. The belly dancer and male dancer performed before dinner. The belly dancer invited guests to join her for the last song. It's scary to get up there in front of strangers, but it was pretty fun. There is spaghetti for picky kids, but the Arabic foods were all pretty good. After dinner, they invited us to enjoy shisha in a separate space while others continued their dinner. Once completely dark, the fire dancer performed. After a few minutes, it was time to head out. The desert is beautiful. From the sunset on the dunes to the sky so clear you can see a thousand stars shining. We even saw a shooting star so clearly and bright with such a clear sky. In March, it was a wonderful temperature for shorts. We were barefoot in the soft sand throughout dinner. For tourists or residents, this should be experienced at least once if you can.
