If you are looking for a grand celebration on the red sand dunes of the Arabian Desert, then this venture will serve the purpose for you. The Dubai red dune bashing with desert camping and BBQ experience takes place in the Lahbab region of UAE and lets you enjoy a BBQ dinner, camel ride and more. Owing to business opportunities, soaring city skyline and numerous places of interests, Dubai has emerged as a distinguished destination among international tourists. You can enjoy a refreshing and revitalising bash at a distance of less than 50 km from here. Leave from your lodging in Dubai, and hop on four-wheel drive vehicles to begin this venture. These air-conditioned and comfortable automobiles are just perfect for a tour in the vibrant Arabian Desert.
Soon, you will leave the city behind and enter the surrounding expansive desert. On the way, a guide will explain you about the local landscapes and the history of the place. The transformation of Dubai from a fishing village to a metropolis and a business hub is worth knowing about. You will notice the light yellow colour of the sand changing to dark brown and then eventually to deep red. These red dunes are also a highlight of this region. The red dune desert safari Dubai now takes you off-road and you feel your four-wheel drive sliding down on the sand. This continuous bobbing may make adrenaline rush through your veins. These rolling dunes are one of the prime attractions of the Lahbab region of the Arabian Desert.
From small dunes, move to the high and steep slopes and feel your automobile skid on the loose sand. Hold tight as your four-wheel drive bounces up and down the dunes. Give a small pause to this ride to enjoy a beautiful sunset, bathing the realm in an orange hue. Do not forget to capture this mesmerising and awe-inspiring sight in your cameras. Afterwards, continue the drive and reach your campsite, set amidst the sand dunes of Lahbab. These beautiful lamp-lit tents exhibit the heritage of Bedouins – the descendants of the nomads of the Arabian and Syrian Deserts. As you enter these tents and rejuvenate on the cosy cushions, you will receive a traditional Emirati welcome with coffee and some dates.
An aromatic shisha or a water pipe is also offered to you in these tents. While you relax at the site, you can opt for a number of activities in the region. You may head out to on a camel ride or if you are feeling adventurous, then you can try sandboarding on the red dunes of the scenic Arabian Desert. Henna artists are also here to make a tattoo of your liking. Desert buggy rides are also offered here at an additional cost. After this adventurous jaunt, return to your tents, where festivities and entertainment will be the order of the day. The programme includes live Arabic music and the incredibly alluring belly dancing. This Middle Eastern dance form has become quite famous all over the world.
Apart from the show by professional belly dancers, a performance of Tanoura dance will also treat your senses during this red dune bashing in Dubai. Witness Sufi men whirl their beautifully patterned skirts, with wide open eyes. As you enjoy this spectacle, mouth-watering BBQ dinner will be served to you in your canopies. The food served includes delicious grilled meat, salads, desserts, sodas and mineral water. If you wish, then you can also purchase additional drinks from the in-house cash bar. The tour ends when the four-wheel drive automobile drops you back at your lodging in the metropolis of Dubai.
