    Stop: 6 hours - Admission excluded
    Be collected at your accommodation or another central location and be driven straight to the Abu Dhabi desert. This desert is a haven of peace for all people alike. Once you reach the desert, you will be taken to a camel farm nearby. Get ready for a thrilling dune bashing session. Enjoy moving up and down the dunes in a 4WD vehicle, led by a seasoned driver, and feel the adrenaline rush. Once the dune bashing is done, try out sandboarding, another thrilling desert sport. Glide down the dunes with both your feet strapped to a board. Amidst all the fun, do not forget to capture some cool photographs of the beautiful desert landscape. Then it is time to drive to the desert camp. Here, be welcomed with Gahwa (Arabic coffee) and dates. Once you have refreshed yourself, it is the time to step out of the camp and go for a quad bike ride for about 10 minutes. The beauty of this activity is that it lets you experience self-driving in the desert at its best. Afterward, you then go for a short camel ride and feel the aura of the desert as the gentle animal moves at a leisurely pace. After the camel ride, head to the camp to catch the sunset from the top dunes. Partake in some traditional Arabian activities such as an Arabian makeover, shisha smoking, henna tattooing, and posing with a falcon, before enjoying a delicious BBQ dinner. The campsite and the activities in it have been designed to give you a special feeling of the Bedouin desert life from the bygone eras. Once you are done at the camp and it is time to call it a day in the desert, you will be returned to your pickup location.
