My husband and I loved this trip! It may have been the highlight of our whole time in Dubai. The ride through the desert and the dunes was just right -- we chose this particular version of the desert experience partially because it did not do any "dune busting". The guide was terrific, the food and the camp was also very good. We had a stop for sunset and a demonstration of a falcon in flight.
If you have the time, this tour should be on the top of your Dubai list. I highly recommend it. Our driver/host Malek was fantastic. He had a great sense of humor and was really patient with us. They picked me up at my hotel. From there, we drove out towards the desert. Along the way, Malek noticed that there was a camel race going on, so we pulled over to watch. Once we arrived, they put a keffiyeh on each of us. Then we chose a Land Rover and headed out into the desert. They stop multiple times to give everyone opportunities for pictures. Climbing sand dunes was pretty cool. We then went and saw the falconry display and got to hold the falcon. We saw a stunning sunset and then headed to the camp for dinner. It's a gorgeous setup and the food was amazing. It's extremely well-run. We had camel rides whilst there and enjoyed starters and dinner. They had local dancers and entertainment (including henna artist) and the evening was capped off by the offer to partake in hookah (it's optional). That's a lot to do in your six or seven hours and it was a five-star experience. One couple in my group had done the same tour last year and loved it so much, they came back again. Now that I have done this once, I would also do it again.
We had a fantastic alternative Christmas Day on this trip. Our guide was amazing and the personal attention was magnificent. We could not fault anything on our adventure and have returned home with many great memories.
A memorable experience. Following a prompt and efficient pick up, we were soon transferred to the site where (having been head wrapped in our scarves) we were assigned to our open-topped Land Rover. Our driver (Hassam) was not only great fun to be with, he knew his stuff! He excited us: demonstrating his speedy but safe driving skills in the sand. He was informative about the intent of the conservation area and knowledgeable of the local species (not that we saw many). The entire desert experience was fun-focused. The hospitality could not be faulted. We loved the falconry display, the hilarity of riding the 'ship of the desert', the very tasty dinner and the Arabic entertainment. It was an experience we would recommend.......and if you get Hassam as your driver you will definitely have fun.
Fantastic experience. Love the 4 wheel drives, falcon display, camel ride and food. Our guide was passionate and funny and made it a complete experience.
Fantastic tour, our guide Hajaj was great entertainment and knowledgeable from pick up to drop off. I have been on a desert safari and dinner before but this is a completely different experience. The drive through the conversation was amazing and actually saw some animals. Once we reached the camp is was really well set up and we had a short tour around the camp and told what was happening over the next few hours. The food was delicious! Highly recommended!
Superb trip and a real highlight of our visit to Dubai. Our guide Handi was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable and the food was excellent. We loved the drone taking video of the trip and there was a very well produced souvenir video and photo stick - not cheap but optional. The desert scenery and wildlife viewing was amazing. Thoroughly recommended.
Fantastic tour! Our guide Hajaj was very informative, friendly and funny. The desert safari drive in the 1950s vintage jeep was very interesting with fantastic views and plenty of photo stops, never felt rushed to move on to the next part of the tour. Great view from the sunset stop and watched the falconry display. The camp has been designed very well and not too big, food was delicious! Even tried Camel! Absolute must do in Dubai!
