What to expect

Experience the most awarded Desert Safari in Dubai. Take a step back in time and experience Dubai as it was in the 1950s on an adventure in the Dubai desert with a professional conservation guide. Unlike any other Dubai desert safari, you will go on a fascinating wildlife drive in a 1950’s vintage Land Rover. As the first motorised vehicles used in the Dubai desert, these Series 1 and 2 Land Rovers have become symbolic of Dubai’s heritage and ventures to unexplored territories. Arrive at the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve to receive your Adventure Pack and put on your Sheila/Ghutra (traditional headscarf). Spot native wildlife like Arabian oryx and stop at a Ghaf tree forest in the dunes for the most spectacular photo opportunities in the desert. Learn about the unique desert ecosystem and discover how the Bedouin survived in the desert in harmony with the desert animals and vegetation. Witness a spectacular falcon show led by a professional falconer and watch these magnificent birds flying. Learn about ancient training techniques and how the Bedouin used falcons for hunting. Watch the Arabian sun setting over the sand dunes. Afterwards, you will arrive at an authentic Bedouin camp, gently lit with traditional lamps and nestled inside a private desert retreat. Discover the rich culture and traditions of Dubai’s heritage with live demonstrations of Arabic coffee and bread making, henna painting, camel rides and traditional performances. Enjoy a 4-course dinner under the stars and relax in the Arabic Majilis area, where you can try some shisha. History comes to life in this once-in-a-lifetime Desert Safari in Dubai!
