Activity description

Navigate by the night’s sky on this sunset dune bashing adventure in the Red Desert.

As the shadows cast their last light on Dubai’s Red Desert; race off into the Arabian sunset in search of a hidden Bedouin camp. Travel under a canopy of stars as you travel along the roof of the Al Madam plateau, reaching the traditional camp into time for a decadent Arabian dinner, belly dancing and more…

This activity takes place in the Red Desert in Dubai. Located near Sharjah City, it is home to the area’s biggest dune ‘Big Red’ near Al Badayer. Part of the Dubai-Sharjah-Ajman metropolitan area, it is renowned among 4x4 enthusiasts as having some of the UAE’s most impressive dunes.

Meet your guide at the activity base in Al Badayer for this dune bashing excursion & Bedouin dinner in the Red Desert. An after-dark adventure that showcases Dubai’s nomadic history against the backdrop of the Arabian desert, this luxury tour takes you high into the Al Madam plateau at sunset; offering stunning views of the landscape at last light - and a rich tapestry of traditional cuisine, culture and live entertainment. Start your adventure with a short safety briefing and demo before you follow your guide deep into the Red Desert. Exploring the shifting sands of this ancient landscape, learn how to navigate and balance on its sloping dunes –drifting and sliding as you race towards the secret Bedouin camp in time for sunset. On your arrival, a team of hosts will be waiting to serve you customary Arabian delicacies alongside a buffet dinner. Later, guests can choose to take a camel ride, watch a belly dancing show or even try some flavoured shisha before returning to the activity base - where a shuttle will be waiting to transfer you back to your accommodation.

Suitable for anyone over the age of +13 years old, guests can choose from either a traditional quad bike or a dune buggy (ATV). Passengers/children are permitted when accompanied by an adult. No driving licence required.

It was a fun quad ride in a designated desert area. People who don't have any experience with quads may need 10-15 to get accustomed to the steering, but after that, it's a lot of fun!
