A Dubai desert experience with AutoVenture’s dune ride and Bedouin Camp adventure.
In Dubai, you’ll revel in the city’s affordable dining, opulent shopping malls, golf courses sprung from a desert landscape, and gold haggling as a local sport. Here, the seven-star Burj Al Arab hotel sits like a giant yacht, an enduring reminder that Dubai has transformed permanently from a traditional quiet fishing village of decades ago.
But some traditions are still very much alive and, if you want to enjoy an enchanted evening at a Bedouin camp, the best way to do so is to hop aboard a guided, AutoVenture four-wheeler and launch up and over the dunes. After an exciting, riotous ride over humps and bumps, you arrive at the Bedouin camp — a manmade oasis of color, with goat-hair tents, comfortable cushions, an underground oven, tasty dishes, a bar and entertainment around the campfire.
Bring your camera because before nightfall, the desert sunset washes the dunes in a hot palate of vibrant hues. There also are free camel rides and ATVs for rent for those who didn’t get enough rollicking over the dunes.
Other activities inside the camp include sand art for sale, henna tattoos, belly dancing and even a falcon show. A starlit evening in the desert is the perfect capper to an exotic vacation in Dubai.
