Networking Premium Desert Safari Tour (Sand Dunning)
Apart from this super adventurous dune bashing Dubai experience, there will be a stop to stretch your feet, take in enthralling desert sunset views, and of course, click some great pictures too.
The second part of your desert safari will head you to our modest desert camp where nature, culture, and Arabian hospitality seamlessly come together. Get a deeper glimpse into the ancient Bedouin traditions with many activities such as camel ride, henna painting, and Shisha smoking.
After all desert adventure and cultural experiences, enjoy a BBQ dinner with vegetarian and non-vegetarian delights, together with a dose of genuine traditional entertainment like intricate Tanura performance and Belly Dance show.
