What You Can Expect

Luxury Desert Experience: Camel Safari with Dinner and Emirati Activities with Transport from Dubai

Watch fascinating cookery demonstrations at your Bedouin-style desert 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 45-minute ride on a camel. Enjoy the views as your camel lumbers across the sands: you’ll soon understand how these hardy herbivores provide ideal transport for nomadic Bedouins. 

After around 45 minutes, arrive at a Bedouin-style camp inside a desert retreat owned by the UAE royal family.

Leave your camel and absorb the magical setting. The compound stands amid rolling dunes and is prettily illuminated by flame torches, giving it a truly Arabian feel.

As the sun sets, watch a display of the ancient sport of falconry. 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. Savor Arabic coffee, get a henna tattoo and learn to make Arabic breads with 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.

Loved it! It was a wonderful experience. The camel ride was really fun and the evening dinner in the desert was excellent.

This trip was amazing,a very well put together package. The camel ride was just the right length. Getting to see a falcon up close perched on my arm was a great experience. There was a good choice of food for a meal,more than I could eat!! An added bonus for me was finally trying a shiesha pipe.
All in all,a great outing.

This tour was amazing, the company was fantastic and the guides patient and great. It was a personalised tour, without the crowds, we were able to do a 45 minute camel ride and then see a falconry display before being covered by old jeeps to dinner. The food was amazing, heaps of it and the staff always tentative. Great tour company

This was a real nice outing to do while in Dubai. The transport from hotel was timely, driver was friendly and showed us around town, brought us to camel race track while on way to desert. I have been sand boarding in Namibia, and really wanted to do that again in Dubai, but glad we didn't waste our time, the Dubai dunes are very short, and your sand board ride would be a matter of 5 sec, the dunes maybe about 20 ft tall. Anyway, the camel ride was great, followed by a falcon show, and a generous dinner in a very cool setting. A lot of hours, but worth it! thanks for a great time!

What fun! Staff were wonderful. We took my 85 year old Auntie on this and she loved it, the staff were especially helpful to her.
Great value for money. Shame there was no wine or beer though!

Excellent tour and guide. The 40c heat that we had made the length of time on the camels a little much but the meal guide and the little 4WD that we got to do more than made up for that, plus the refreshing drink was even more enjoyable. Would highly recommend. We also got to see Saturn and its rings which was an added bonus!

The Desert Experience is possibly the best tour I have ever been on. I travel the world, and nothing has impressed me as much as this tour. The tour was very organize and thoughtfully planned. From the pick up at my hotel to the return to the hotel everything went excellently. The camel safari was incredible, the falcon show very interesting , the dinner most enjoyable and delicious. I highly recommend this tour, it is a MUST DO when you are in Dubai.

A totally amazing experience we would recommend this to anyone! Botir was our guide for the entire evening was very friendly and provide us with a lot of detailed information about the UAE, Dubai customs and camels even taking a slight detour to show us some camel being trained for racing on the way out of Dubai which added to the experience.

The guide who took us out on the camels could not have been more welcoming making sure we were happy and comfortable throughout the 45 minute camel ride and stopped to take plenty of photos for us using our own camera. There were 3 groups for the camels but each went off separately in smaller groups of 3 or less, so you really felt alone in the desert.

We arrived for the falcon display which was at sunset - although Bolt the falcon was a little reluctant to perform at first he did provide an interesting display even landing in the group at one point! This was followed by a magical evening in the bedouin camp, with dancing and great food. Then it was time for an astronomy talk and a look at Saturn - something I didn't think I would be interested in but it was really good. This trip is worth the extra money and was the best trip of our stay in Dubai.
