    What to Expect
    Safari takes off - we’ll proceed to Fossil and Camel rocks, after a pick up from your selected location, in a 4x4 land cruiser. On the way you will hear interesting facts about this land such as how it was evolved into a desert from a seafloor - millions of years ago, and still exhibits various kinds of marine fossils, so on.  

    Break time - In the desert you can take 20-25 minutes break in the arranged rest area. Take rest or, if you want, go for an optional quad bike ride. In this time we will make the land cruiser ready for desert ride with low Tyre pressure.

    The fun starts with dune bashing in Dubai desert, which continues for next 35-45 minutes. You can also try another sports - sand boarding... play close to the soft sands by surfing over the dunes. At the same time, make it a point to shoot the best sceneries of Fossil and Camel rock in cameras. When it is over, we will go to Al Khayma desert camp for more fun.

    BBQ at Al Khayma - Get seated in a tent / Khayma and be welcomed with local Gahwa, Gaymat & all. ... Have a delicious BBQ followed by desserts - a great chance to taste Arabic cuisines.

    Entertainments @Al Khayma - Inside the camp, different activities are arranged and you can have it one by one. Try Arabian costumes, henna designs, shisha pipe smoking, falcon photo-shoot. In addition, be an active spectator of Tanoura dance and Belly dance performances.

    Time for sunset ride - when camp activities get over, go for an evening ride on Camelback. You can have a good desert sunset view (subject to timings).

    Finally we will take you back to your drop off location... an exciting Fossil and Camel rocks desert safari in Dubai concludes!
