This safari departs in the afternoon across the desert of Dubai with several photo halts during a thrilling dune drive to the Camel farm, which is the first destination of the evening safari. The drive then continues across the desert and further stops so that you can watch the beautiful sunset before reaching the campsite.
On reaching the campsite, you get the opportunity to do a camel ride, sand boarding, and other thrilling activities. You can even try out a henna design on your hand and feet.
Besides, if you simply want to relax and take a nap then you can use your tent and can lie down with your favorite beverage that is available at the well-stocked bar at the campsite.
