Located 50 kilometres from the city, Lahbab is distinctively known for its sleek red colour sand and its towering dunes. This tour is an ideal blend of thrill and relaxation, suitable for adventure seekers, families, couples as well as solo travellers.
You will be picked up from your hotel in a 4x4 vehicle; the drive to the desert spot takes about 45-50 minutes. Feel free to ask your expert guide about the history of Dubai, famous monuments or simply hold a casual conversation about the height of Burj Khalifa!

As the night settles in, enjoy a delicious and luxurious BBQ, hummus and salads accompanied by drinks. While enjoying your meal, feast your eyes on a colourful belly dancing show followed by a Tanura performance.
