What You Can Expect
Head through Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, for an African inspired Wildlife Safari, looking out for wildlife such as Arabian gazelles and oryx, and then hop out of your Mercedes G Wagon to watch the UAE’s National Bird the Falcon perform at dazzling speeds in front of you.
The falcon is the national bird of the United Arab Emirates, and so falconry displays are popular events. Gaze at the magnificent birds of prey looping through the sky and swooping down to the trainers’ gloved fists, and get close-up-and-personal with the birds for a photo, if you wish.
After the display, enjoy a camel ride to a quiet and peaceful sanctuary, and admire your tranquil surroundings, illuminated by flame torches and antique gas lamps. Then, all that’s left to do is enjoy your 6-course dinner — cooked nearby by your private chef — under the twinkling stars. Your menu features flavors from the Middle East and Asia. See the Itinerary for a sample menu.
In between eating, you can enjoy a selection of experiences, such as a belly dancing and henna tattooing. You can smoke a shisha pipe (Arabic water pipe) if you wish! Alternatively, just enjoy your food in the romantic private sanctuary.
When you have finished your meal, your guide will pick you up by Mercedes G Wagon. Leave the site, and then journey back through the desert to finish your experience with a drop-off at your Dubai hotel.
