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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

We had so much fun on this tour. What an experience! One point to mention is: hold on tight when the camel goes from a standing to sitting position! Our guide was wonderful and very knowledgeable. The falconry demo was outstanding. The food at the Bedouin Camp was very good. If you felt brave enough you could try some camel meat. My husband did and told me it was delicious. The entertainment was good as well. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour. Don't let the price scare you. It is worth every cent.

This trip is a wonderful way to experience real Arab culture. Dubai is a big city with skyscraper after skyscraper but the desert Safari is definitely worth doing. We had a wonderful tour guide who was really helpful and answered all our questions. camel experience and dining was top class well done

An absolutely amazing experience. The 45 minute camel ride as the sun set was worth it on its own. I thought the falconry would be boring, but it was really interesting. The dinner was great - so much food. Our tour guide Wesser was funny and made the trip enjoyable. This was the best part of our Dubai trip.
