Ras Al Khaimah desert safari and BBQ dinner
Escape the heat and hassle of Ras Al Khaimah’s urban center on an afternoon and evening desert safari in a 4x4 vehicle.
Following a pick-up from your hotel, relax in the air-conditioned off-road vehicle. Head to the desert dunes that surround the city, and admire views of the barren yet enchanting landscape on the way. Stop at a traditional camel farm to see herds of the magnificent hump-backed herbivores. Learn about the different types of camels commonly seen in the desert around Ras Al Khaimah.
Continue across the desert plains in your 4x4 vehicle and arrive at a campsite where Arabic coffee and dates are offered as a welcome. Climb on the back of a camel for an optional guided tour around the encampment. You can get a henna tattoo design on your hands or feet, you will watch a traditional Tanourah folk dance and feast on a delicious barbecue dinner.
After dinner, smoke a shisha (Arabic water pipe) if you wish and watch a live belly-dance performance. Then you can relax under a canopy of twinkling stars and enjoy an experience that could be straight out of “One Thousand and One Nights.”
