Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

In addition to being the only desert safari in Dubai where you’re transported in vintage Land Rovers—an Indiana Jones lover’s dream—this luxury safari is one of the few allowed to set up camp on the property of the UAE’s royal family, which means less crowds and a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

What You Can Expect

Desert Experience: Dinner and Emirati Activities with Vintage Land Rover Transport from Dubai

Travel through the desert in a 1950s vintage Land Rover!

Begin your desert experience with a pickup from central Dubai hotel. Enjoy the views as you travel into the desert and swap your pickup vehicle for a shared, open-top vintage Land Rover. If you wish, upgrade when you book to travel in your own private Land Rover, with a private driver.
Take a seat in the rugged 4x4 — a classic vehicle used extensively for desert transport during the 1950s and 1960s.

Then, with an experienced driver at the wheel, set off through the beautiful Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, a protected haven for desert wildlife. On route, listen to interesting stories about Dubai’s history and an introduction to the traditional desert activities on offer this evening.
As you rumble through the sands, look for wildlife such as Arabian gazelles and oryx. Then, as the sun sets, stop for a fascinating display of falconry. Watch as the birds soar through the air and swoop for lures.

Back aboard your Land Rover, drive to a Bedouin-style desert camp in the grounds of a private royal retreat. Admire the beautiful setting of plush tents and outdoor cushions cast in the flickering light of flame torches.

Before dinner, enjoy an array of Emirati activities. Savor an Arabic coffee, watch a bread-making demonstration, get a henna tattoo and take a camel ride.

Next, take a seat at a shared, low Bedouin-style table for a delicious 4-course dinner of Emirati specialities. (See the Itinerary for a sample menu.) Afterward, smoke a shisha (Arabic water pipe) if you wish, and enjoy displays of Arabic folk dancing and music as the stars light up the sky.

Then, ride your Land Rover back through the sands to the camp entrance. Board an air-conditioned minivan and return to Dubai, where your experience ends with a hotel drop-off.

Don't wear mesh sneaker, you will get sand in your shoes. Best to wear boots or something you dont mind getting sandy. Food was amazing and plenty to eat. Bring a bottle of water for the ride from Dubai but after you arrive to the desert drinks were provided. Restroom facilities are available upon arrival in the desert and again at the camp where food is served. Bring a jacket for when the sun goes down if in the chillier months. This was the best Viator experience we took in Dubai.

I highly recommend this tour to anyone traveling to Dubai. Our guide,Khairy, was very knowledgable about all things Dubai.
Driving to the reserve he gave us an insight into the history of Dubai as well as an insight into modern day Dubai.
When we reached the reserve we transferred to the vintage land rovers and the drive through the desert was a great experience, and surprisingly comfortable. The camp,site was beautifully presented ............and again very well organised. The food available on the evening was of a high standard and there was plenty. Lots of fun having a henna tattoo, camel riding and enjoying the traditional dance.
A must do on your visit to Dubai and a big thank you to Khairy for making the trip so enjoyable.

The Desert Experience delivered as advertised. We are experienced and frequent world travelers and we try to pick an unique experience in destinations which will represent the culture and history of the locale and also provide us with memories. This Desert Experience certainly did. From an informative guide Hossan Jr and the driver Moussa congrats on Cameroon victory over Senegal to carefully planned itinerary, we were never disappointed.

I was in Dubai for a trade show so I scheduled this Desert Experience as an opportunity to get my sales team together. The event was a big hit and everyone had a great time. Our host was Mahmoud, who was absolutely great, and he picked us up at our hotel in Dubai and gave us very special attention throughout our tour. I would absolutely recommend this tour for anyone that wants to experience the great adventure that surrounds Dubai.

What an incredible experience! Our guide, Yasser was very knowledgeable and funny! When back at the camp he always made sure we had everything we needed. The food was fantastic and the shows were amazing. We went at the end of January so it got cold at night, but otherwise we all had a great time!

This was an excellent experience wherein we got to see the true older customs of the Emiratis. The authentic food and dancing and other activities at the camp were very intriguing.

Even the trip out to the camp across the desert in an open-air vehicle was exciting though mildly uncomfortable due to blowing sand. Our excellent guide showed us how to cover up using the head scarves, and that was a great help. The falcon training and flights provided an unusual side show.

I have to commend our driver/guide for his paying special attention to my wife who required extra help to get in and out of the high jeep. That, added to his overall expertise and interesting anecdotes and obvious love for his job, made for a very pleasant experience.
