Abu Dhabi: 4-Hour Morning Desert Safari with Camel Ride and Sandboarding

Select Date and Travellers
US$ 55.00
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Get ready for a 4-hours desert safari starting with morning pick-up at your hotel. A 45-minute drive takes you to the heart of the desert outside Abu Dhabi.

    Explore the desert in a 4x4 Land Cruiser, bashing the huge dunes. The fun continues with a chance to try out sandboarding. Follow the instructions and glide over the dunes as you see how simple it really is.

    During the safari there will be plenty of opportunity to pose for some photos in the desert. Your friendly driver will help you with that.

    This special morning safari concludes with a short camel ride before the transfer back to the pick-up point
