What You Can Expect

Luxury Dinner in the Desert Experience from Dubai

Explore the desert before enjoying a private dining experience!

Start your dinner in the desert experience with a pickup from your Dubai hotel, and then travel into the desert aboard your Mercedes-Benz G-Class (SUV), a luxury mode of transport with spacious seating. As you travel, your guide will regale you with stories of Dubai’s past and present as well as the many customs and traditions that you’ll experience throughout the evening.

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 Land Rover 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 cultural 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.
