Departure Time

2:30 PM
Begin your desert experience with a pickup from central Dubai hotel. Enjoy the views as you travel into the desert and swap your pickup vehicle for a shared, open-top vintage Land Rover. 

Then, with an experienced driver at the wheel, set off through the beautiful Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, a protected haven for desert wildlife. On route, listen to interesting stories about Dubai’s history and an introduction to the traditional desert activities on offer this evening.

As you rumble through the sands, look for wildlife such as Arabian gazelles and oryx. Then, as the sun sets, stop for a fascinating display of falconry. Watch as the birds soar through the air and swoop for lures.

Back aboard your Land Rover, drive to a Bedouin-style desert camp in the grounds of a private royal retreat. Admire the beautiful setting of plush tents and outdoor cushions cast in the flickering light of flame torches.

Before dinner, enjoy an array of Emirati activities. Savor an Arabic coffee, watch a bread-making demonstration, get a henna tattoo and take a camel ride.

Next, take a seat at a shared, low Bedouin-style table for a delicious multi-course dinner of Emirati specialities. (See the Itinerary for a sample menu.) Afterward, smoke a shisha (Arabic water pipe) if you wish, and enjoy displays of Arabic folk dancing and music as the stars light up the sky.

Then, ride your Land Rover back through the sands to the camp entrance. Board an air-conditioned minivan and return to Dubai, where your experience ends with a hotel drop-off.

The open top Jeep was fantastic and really made the trip extra special. Lovely Bedouin style camp, with amazing food (and lots of it!). The guides were all so friendly and also very knowledgeable on local history and customs

Fabulous day trip in vintage Land Rover. Felt like a scene from Lawrence of Arabia Drive through to dunes with some commentary about the eco system. Falconry display was impressive and informative. Highlight was the evening spent at the Bedouin camp and the amazing Arabic food - way too much of it though. Highly recommend this trip

We LOVED this tour! Our tour guide, Oscar, was amazing! Super friendly and very knowledgeable. He also was great about taking pictures for us and his camera/Instagram pic skills were on point! What to expect: They picked us up at our hotel at 4pm and it was a ~50 minute drive to the desert in a van. Then you get your traditional headpiece and water and get into an open air jeep. Now granted it was August so it was HOT but it was still great! And they kept reminding us to drink our water and stay hydrated. You get to see the animals and take pictures with the rolling dunes. They also make sure to take tons of photos for you along the way (they then try to sell these to you at the end but that doesn’t stop them from taking other pics with your phones). We then had a falconry demonstration, which was very interesting and some juice and tea. You can also take pictures holding the falcon! Then they take you to the camp where you meet up with other tour groups (~50 in all maybe). They teach you about the traditional way to say hello and the culture of the Bedouins. While they prepare your food, you ride camels and explore around a bit. The camel ride is just in a small circle but it was still fun. Camels are taller than you think! Dinner was good but if you’re not adventurous, you might not eat a ton. But they do give you a lot of food! We were stuffed! Also they start you with salad and hummus so that was delicious. At the end, the photographers come around and show you all the pictures they took of you all day, which was fun. They are for purchase but we didn’t buy any. They aren’t pushy though which was so nice! I expected to be pressured more. To end, we did some star gazing and smoke shisha (aka hookah). It was such an amazing experience. We LOVED this tour! 2 things I would say were areas of improvement. One was due to COVID they couldn’t do henna tattoos. That was super disappointing as I had been looking forward to that so much! The other was the drum circle. That was um not great. Then they wanted you to grab a drum and join in; it was lame. Belly dancing would’ve been much better! Or really just anything else. Also as a warning, and especially for us as it was August, it is hot! You’re going to sweat and you’re going to be covered in sand by the time you go home. Just prepare for that and you’ll have a great time. We sure did!

Hello— I just wanted to take a few moments to compliment your tour and especially our tour guide Hjaja. He was very professional and full of clear information and energy. We really enjoyed our jeep ride with him in the desert last night. When my friend started not feeling well, he was very attentive and made alternative arrangements for us to head back early to Dubai. We truly appreciate his efforts. Many thanks to him and your company for a lovely tour and dinner. You are lucky to have hjaja as part of your employee group.

This was a fun trip enhanced by very friendly staff. A special shout out to Amjad our driver guide who was engaging and entertaining. Dropped a star only because of previous personal experiences of the desert, falconry and Jeep safari. Otherwise 5 star all the way and well organized. Small group eco-conscious tour with great food and good traditional entertainment
