Our Expert Says

If you want to go beyond the sparkling city lights of Abu Dhabi in search of some thrills, then a Desert Safari is perfect for you. Your trip into the unknown can include dune-bashing, sand-boarding, camel trekking (all under the watch of an expert guide) and even an overnight stay for the ultimate desert adventure experience. Top Tip: Take your trip into the desert in the evening and witness a spectacular sunset followed by a barbecue dinner around a campfire under the stars. This is one opportunity that you cannot have at home.
