Why Travelers Choose This Tour

A step up from standard desert trips, this offers a longer-than-usual camel ride, and dinner at a luxe camp.
Begin your experience with a pickup from your central Dubai hotel. Settle inside your air-conditioned minivan and relax as travel into the desert.

Meet your camel convoy and enjoy a leisurely ride on a camel. Enjoy the views as your camel lumbers across the sands: you soon understand how these hardy herbivores provide ideal transport for nomadic Bedouins. 

Then, arrive at a Bedouin-style camp inside a desert retreat owned by the UAE royal family. The compound stands amid rolling dunes and is illuminated by flame torches, giving it a truly Arabian feel.

As the sun sets, watch a falconry demonstration. Admire the speed and elegance of the falcons as they answer their handlers’ commands and swoop for lures. 

Stroll into the dunes for photos of the sunset and enjoy a range of traditional desert activities inside a rustic-style Arabian tent. Sip Arabic coffee, get a henna tattoo, and learn to make Arabic breads during a step-by-step demonstration.

Next, settle at a low Bedouin table for a 4-course feast of typical Emirati dishes with sodas and mineral water. See the Itinerary for a sample menu.

Following dinner, choose to smoke a shisha (Arabic water pipe) and watch a display of traditional dancing and music under the stars.

Return to Dubai in your minivan and end your experience with a hotel drop-off.

The highlight of our visit to Dubai!

We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon and evening on the Camel Desert Safari with Traditional Dinner. Riding on the camels was quite an experience. We took many great photos while out in the desert, and the tour company had photographers stationed out in the desert to snap pics of us as we rode by. We enjoy learning about other cultures, and we were given the opportunity to learn about the falcons, music and dance, eating delicious traditional food, henna tattoos and more. Both my husband and I would highly recommend this tour.

The safari was as expected a great experience. The only negative was that we were not able to order the photos because they delayed to circulate the ipads on time. Overall we really enjoyed it.

We had the best time on this tour. The guides were knowledgeable and witty and very attentive. The background information on our food and experiences really added to the experience. We were given a dilly bag and water bottles. They also would take photos using our phones or iPads. The video at the end was fabulous

This was EXCELLENT! I had a great ride! The handlers were patient and made the ride enjoyable. Just note that the driver takes pictures - it is expensive but worth it. You can also purchase just 10 pictures and not the video. Don't forget to try camel meat - very tasty.

This was absolutely the highlight of our trip and we really had some very special moments during our 29 day visit from Rome to Dubai. Everything starting from pickup us up at the Pullman Dubai to giving us a special case with water bottles, getting us on a camel, the amazing hour long camel ride, photos, Falcon show, appetizers, henna tattoo, an amazing dinner, and on and on.. EXCELLENT, ReCOMMEND it to ALL! This was absolutely a 5* class act and could not even suggest anything that would make it better. Linda & Augie

This is such a well organised activity, the highlight of our stay in Dubai. We enjoyed every minute of it, starting from the camel ride in the sunset, the falcon show to the activities and dinner in the beduin camp. Great hospitality.
