Following a hotel pick-up, head out from Dubai in a comfortable 4x4 vehicle for your Fossil & Camel rocks safari. On the way learn some fascinating facts about the Fossil Rocks from your guide. Upon arrival, take a short break (20-25 minutes) in the rest area, making use of bathroom facilities, relax, and if you’d like to, go for an optional Quad Biking nearby. Red dunes adventure time; as soon as your 4x4 is ready, proceed for a dune bashing drive. Feel the excitement mounts as your safari driver rides the 4x4 over those steep dunes for 35-45 minutes. Marvel the sights of Fossil and Camel rocks. For more thrills take a sandboarding ride on the desert dunes.  Next, drive to Al Khayma camp in Dubai desert. Get seated in your own Khayma and experience the Arabic culture and hospitality by having Arabic coffee, dates and sweets. It’s then time for an evening camel ride — enjoy the beautiful views while riding across the desert terrains. Head back to camp where you can experience henna body painting, smoke a shisha pipe to get into the Bedouin spirit, put on an Arabic costume, get a photo of yourself with a falcon on your hand, and be entertained by the traditional Tanoura dance on stage. Once you've worked up an appetite, you will then enjoy a barbecue buffet dinner followed by desserts, before watching the Belly dance shows later on.  You will then be driven back to your hotel/accommodation at the end of the tour.
