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.

I cant praise Platinum Heritage highly enough for this great evening in the desert. They really do everything in their power to ensure their guests have a great time, we were picked up from our hotel at the time specified and driven to the desert where we met our camels for our 45 minute ride.
After our camel ride, we saw a Falcon display before a short ride in a vintage land rover to the camp for dinner , henna tattoos , dancing and shisha pipes if you wanted to try it.
Every member of staff we met were great and went out of their way to ensure we had the best time possible. I Highly recommend this tour, and wouldn't hesitate to do it again myself

One of the highlights of our trip! Our guide Mahmoud was excellent - very informative, friendly and professional. Loved the 45 min camel ride through the sand dunes at sunset, food was delicious and the atmosphere at the Bedouin camp very authentic. Did a similar tour a couple of years back but on a budget and this one was way better. It is well worth paying a bit extra and getting the luxury experience!

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!
