Let your hair down and scream “Woo Hoo!” as you ride nature’s roller coaster, dune bashing across the big red soft sandy hills of the desert in a 4?4 Land Cruiser. Dune bashing is a form of off-roading, using a 4x4 vehicle to explore all the dips and slopes of sand dunes, giving you a thrilling excursion, so buckle-up and brace yourself for a very different ride, one that promises to banish the snooze-worthy blahs of your work week.

From 4x4’s to ships of the desert - discover how it feels to ride the camel, often known as the “ship of the desert” for its ability to transport people and goods across long distances. Get up close and personal with the remarkable creature that is such an important part of the Arabian culture. With camels usually towering over 6 feet (1.8 meters) tall, it promises to be an unforgettable Al Maha Desert Safariride.

As guests catch a picture-perfect sunset surrounded by rolling red hills, a traditional Arabian campsite awaits you for more activities to savor. Opportunities to ride a camel, smoke aromatic Shisha (water pipe), sand surf, Grab the opportunity to dress up in Emirati abayas and dishdashes - that would definitely be one for Facebook and the photo albums or have a traditional henna painting done are all part of the experience. As for the grand culmination, a 3-course Arabic feast is to be enjoyed. A Belly Dancer will then perform, having the moonlit sky and an Arabian folk music as background completing the mood.
