Tour Overview

The sunrise desert safari tour in Abu Dhabi is one of the most popular travel packages you'll find in Abu Dhabi. There are desert safari tours offered at different times, but if you choose to go with the sunrise desert safari, you can greet the desert as it smiles at you!

Our tour guide will meet you at the hotel between 4-4.30 am in a Land Cruiser and drive you to the desert at the right time to witness the first rays of sunlight reach every nook of the desert. The sunrise desert safari is a gratifying experience for anyone wishing to explore the vast deserts of the UAE—trust us on this, and you will thank us later! Although an experience in the desert may sound bland and boring to someone, we are here to prove it all wrong with a range of desert activities prepared for you to enjoy during your tour.

The early morning skies of the desert put on a colorful show with hues of orange, yellow, and red lighting up the area. So, visiting Abu Dhabi's desert at the time of sunrise allows you to take beautiful photos with your loved ones as well. It isn't just that. You can also go dune bashing on a Land Cruiser over mighty sand dunes to add adventure and excitement to your desert tour. If you are looking for other experiences to make the most out of your trip, you can even try riding camels in the desert. These camel rides are generally short, but you can go on multiple rides to extend your camel ride duration. However, if you are looking for a proper camel trekking experience, then we recommend you book our camel trekking tour. Additionally, you can also try quad biking for an additional charge.

Not everyone likes adventure. If you are someone who'll enjoy learning more about the culture, traditions, art and history of the Middle East, you can have that too. When you spend time in the deserts of Abu Dhabi, you will be exposed to the rich Arabian history and culture. Whatever it is you like to do, our desert safari tours can always be customised, so you have nothing to worry about. The sunrise desert safari is a tour of approximately 3-4 hours.
