Head out of the city to a traditional camp within the dunes to spend the day camel riding, sand surfing, riding quad bikes over the dunes and ‘dune-bashing’ in luxury air-conditioned four-wheel drive.
Finish up the day with an authentic Arabian night of traditional Bedouin feasting, music and culture.
