A visit to Dubai is almost always complemented by a trip to the desert where the spectacular terrain can be experienced as part of a group tour on a day or overnight safari. It is an opportunity to experience the true heart of Arabia and the terrain varies from rugged mountains to rolling sand dunes inhabited by camels and goats and dotted with the occasional village. Excursions may include camel rides, dune driving through the thick sand, sand skiing and wadi-bashing (exploring the dry river beds in a 4x4 vehicle), and many conclude with an Arabian-style barbecue in a traditional Bedouin tent complete with music and exotic belly dancers.
