What to expect

Now it’s time to experience in real, what till now you have only seen in books and movies... the pleasant desert of Arabia!   

In the afternoon you will be received by our safari captain from your pick up location. Together we will drive to Lahbab - red dunes desert - in a 4 wheel drive Land Cruiser. At about 45 minutes you will arrive at the destination. Relax in the restrooms there, making use of bathroom facilities... you may opt for a short Quad Bike ride as the Land Cruiser gets ready for off-road desert drive.

Time for adventures... our activities start off with desert dune bashing... after 40-45 minutes of red dunes ride, go for sand surfing (sandboarding) down the dunes. We will photograph these nice moments for you. What follows that is camping at Al Khayma.

Al Khayma desert camp... as you arrive, safari captain will show the slots where traditional activities are done and lead you to a tent (Khayma). Get seated and receive a typical local welcome with Gahwa, Gaymat (Arabic coffee, sweets), Dates, and all.

Now it’s trekking time... we will soon go to Desert Ships that are waiting in the Camel area. Take a Camelback trekking on the nearby desert dunes for 15 minutes. Now as the sunset time comes up we will proceed to a top dune where you can witness the sun setting over the desert. After those refreshing views we will return to Al Khayma where you may rest for a while before camp entertainments begin.

Camp activities... make good use of your free time in camp by trying bedouin specials - dressing up as Arab, posing with a Falcon, tattooing with henna (for ladies), shisha pipe smoking, etc. As those activities conclude, you will be treated with a live Tanoura dance show at the camp’s center stage.By this time your dinner will be ready.

Dinner time... fulfill your appetite with a lavish Dinner of barbecue dishes & salads, followed by desserts. Following this, live performances by the Belly dancer further adds up your excitement.

Stargaze and departure... relax entirely on your own... as the camp’s lights get switched off, watch for the stars in the vast sky. After enough enjoyments, we will take you back to your drop off location.
