Full description

The Dune Buggy and Evening Safari Combo afternoon begins with a transfer from your hotel or residence to the Lisaili Camp, where you will experience the thrill of the dunes on a Dune Buggy Adventure. The Lisaili Camp is home to a set driving trail through which specially designed dune buggies weave their way along the bumps, turns and pivots of the desert. There are passenger and driver experiences available, both equally exhilarating.

Once your two-hour Dune Buggy Adventure is complete, we will take you on a short drive in our 4x4 vehicles over to the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, where your Evening Desert Safari begins. The itinerary for the evening includes a wildlife drive, a camel ride on board on Arabian Camel, a short sandboarding lesson, a stop to watch the sun set over the Dubai desert, and a BBQ dinner in a traditional Bedouin setting, amongst the many unique moments you’ll experience throughout your time on the dunes.

The Dune Buggy Adventure follows a set path under the guidance of our experienced team of drivers. Before the experience, a full safety briefing will be provided by our team. We encourage all guests to enjoy a thrilling drive responsibly.

The Evening Desert Safari is a truly memorable experience in the heart of the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve. When combined with the unique thrill of a Dune Buggy Adventure, you’ll enjoy an evening that will always be remembered in the Dubai desert.
