This is one of the only desert safaris around Dubai that lets you ride camels through the dunes like the Bedouins did— making it a truly authentic experience—before relaxing under the stars at the only desert camp allowed to be on the UAE royal family’s property.
Everything about experience was amazing. Sameer our guide was awesome. While he drove to the camel area he gave us a lot of history and culture of Dubai and what was up an coming. He even stopped so we could witness camel racing, which was a plus! The camel ride was nothing like a riding a horse. We rode for about 45mins and then witnessed a falconry show which was pretty cool. We then rode in a vintage land cruiser to the camp, where there was a henna tattoo station, a hooka station, a fire pit, and much more. The food was delicious and we couldn't stop eating. A tip is to not eat so much in the beginning because there is a lot of food and you want to try everything so space it out.
With only a short stay possible in Dubai, this was top of our list and we were not disappointed. Amit our able guide picked us up and with a relaxed humorous demeanor tended to our every need. After a 1 hour drive into the desert, a generous camel ride was followed by an informative falconry display and drive t o'camp' for an equally generous meal. No 1 on Trip Advisor for a reason....
Everything was perfect: the guide Ericson, the views, the food, the organization of the trip. Highly recommend!
Well organised, fun, family friendly adventure and good value for money.

The guide Hamza was friendlyour, funny, and helpful. Everything about this tour was extremely fun. Absolute must when in Dubai.
We really enjoyed this tour. Loved the camel ride. The dinner and entertainment afterwards made for an enjoyable afternoon/evening.
Awesome trip from beginning to end! Our guide Hamdy was excellent and taught us a lot about Emirati culture. The camel ride gave us plenty of time to experience the desert in a natural setting. The meal included a variety of local dishes including camel milk and camel meat which we were wanting to try anyway. The entire evening was full of new experiences, sights, tastes and smells.
This was an AMAZING experience in Dubai. Oscar was our driver, and he was very knowledgeable, providing many great details about Dubai as we travelled to the site. The only note for other travelers out there, is that the experience can be bumpy on the camel, so I would recommend against this if you have any back issues.
Highlight of our ships visit to Dubai. Well organized and great guides,good food and a fantastic experience.
This was a fantastic tour, well organised, great experience, informative and delicious food. We were picked up at our hotel around 3pm and driven in an air conditioned car, which is a must in the Dubai heat for approximately 2 1/2 hours into the desert. The driver was fantastic and gave us so much information about Dubai and the sites were were passing. We even saw some of the camel race training as we headed to the desert. Upon arriving the camels and guides were waiting for us. Lot of pictures were taken and then we embarked on our journey to desert camp on our camel or some people decided to ride in the open air buggies/cars. The sun was setting and the journey to camp on the camels was superb. We stopped for photos, saw some gazelle but most of all soaked in the fantastic scenery. On reaching camp, you could partake in several activities, falcon display, henna painting, riding camels, star gazing with an informative talk, and there was also dancing displays. The food was delicious and there were so many traditional dishes. I am a vegetarian and there was still plenty for me to eat. We ended up back at our hotel somewhere around midnight. This is a fantastic tour and would not hesitate in recommending to anyone. Thanks for a great time.
