Looking for cohesive, team-building activities in Dubai that will get your team motivated but just can’t find the one that fits the bill? Team-building activities have come a long way from the chalk-and-board, classroom-type presentations and the exercises that help cement the theories that are presented.
So instead, why not take up Explorer Tours’ fun-filled physical activities which are largely recreational in nature, but also combine elements of awareness and development in nature. These activities involve you coming up with a strategy while overcoming your team’s strengths and weaknesses, all in efforts to help turn the outcome in your favor.
1. The Amazing Race!
The ever-popular team-based race made popular on TV is now available at Explorer Tours! Split up into teams of four or five (or three if you’re a small company) and head out into the city. Navigate using local transportation – Dubai Metro, water taxi, bus, taxi, or on foot – and decipher instructions and overcome challenges and tasks to acquire artefacts. Make your way through these tasks and race to the checkpoint with all the tasks completed to claim the coveted spot of Team Number One!
The race is available in half-day and full-day packages. You will also be provided with a luxury 4×4 vehicle and driver for the duration of the race.

2. Dune Buggy Challenge.
Sometimes the monotony of professional life can bog you down to the point where you don’t feel like coming in to work the next morning. Why not treat your employees to a fun day in the sand racing our fully-customised dune buggies known in these parts as Desert Foxes. Our sand rails come fully equipped with roll cages, bucket seats, safety harnesses, and state-of-the-art shock absorbers. We also provide a pair of goggles and helmets for added safety.
We’ve set up a 10km track full of obstacles and hazards for you to overcome. Can’t drive or don’t own a driver’s license? Don’t worry! Our Desert Foxes are fully automatic. What’s more, we have a briefing session conducted by a veteran Explorer who will guide you on how to operate these beasts. In case of any technical difficulties, we’ve got a technical team on standby who will shadow you throughout the course of the race.
3. The Bedouin Treasure Hunt.
Use your team’s collective strategic institution to find the coveted treasure of the Bedouin. This treasure was said to have been the lost property of a Bedouin merchant, who was making an expedition from Liwa to Fujairah back in the 1930’s. As the story goes, he fell ill on his journey and had to make an unscheduled stop somewhere in Margham. It is said that he left three treasure boxes hidden in the desert. Ultimately though, the merchant would succumb to his illness, taking the location of the treasures with him to his grave. After news of their father’s demise, his three children sought out the treasure, wasting years with no reward. Their loss, however, may just be your gain, because you now have the chance to claim the Bedouin’s lost treasure as your own!
Once you have found the location of Bedouin’s treasure, you will be able to choose which of the three treasure boxes you wish to keep. The first three teams to find the treasure get the treasure boxes. But don’t worry, no one goes home empty-handed! The remaining teams will be compensated with a souvenir they can take home in memory of the event! So put on your treasure hunting gear and get set to have some fun!

4. The Desert Explorer!
Experience exhilarating challenges while building on the cohesiveness and effectiveness of your team with our Desert Explorer experience. Your day starts with a short safety briefing conducted by trained instructors who will then accompany you on an hour-long exploratory drive to the desert where you will begin your trials. Prepare to get tangled while trying to solve the rope maze, utilise your white matter to navigate our scavenger hunt, sweat and shimmy through our minefield, and get a little wet in the water balloon volley challenge, all while having some good, old-fashioned competition thrown into the mix with our ball and kart race.
Once these activities are completed, retire to our Bedouin-themed camp for a little Arabian hospitality. Cool off for the day with a cocktail, enjoy a leisurely stroll on camelback, learn the beautiful and intricate art of henna painting, or stoke the shisha, while our team prepares a scrumptious three-course BBQ dinner for you. Once dinner is done, enjoy the sights and sounds of an entertaining belly dance, following which you will be taken back to Dubai.
5. The Beach Olympics.
Explorer Tours’ Beach Olympics event gives participants the chance to compete for Olympic glory. The games are staged in a beautiful and safe coastal location. Groups are divided into smaller teams, which will remain so until the end of the events. The games will push the competitors to think, communicate and work together. Following each activity, the teams are given the opportunity to discuss them and the experience they carry from each one. All activities and events are supervised by experienced and qualified staff. At the end of the day, following the awards ceremony, participants can relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of the ocean.
The activities focus on energising the body and motivating individual capability while aligning every individual involved towards achieving a common goal. Group dynamics and bonding are promoted and inculcated, while skills such as communication, cooperation and leadership are key areas that can be improved upon. Activities include Water Volleyball, the Rope Maze, Beach Skiing, the traditional Tug-of-War, Inflatable Whale Relay, and a Sand Castle building competition!
