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.

Everything about this experience was great! It is as local of an experience as you can get. It was wonderful to see the men dancing with the drums, the local food was delicious and our driver was very knowledgeable. All of the guides were very friendly and helpful. My trip was in February and as soon as the sun sets it get chilly. Make sure you bring a jacket.

It was fabulous to have dinner in the desert. The ride to the camp was fun and exciting. We saw quite a few gazelle. The falcon show was interesting. The food was really good. I wish they had belly dancing instead of the drum show. The rifle display was really good.

This was a highlight of our trip to Dubai. We were picked up promptly at our hotel by our amazing guide Brandon. Once we arrived at the Dubai Conservation Reserve we loaded into a 1958 Range Rover or a camel and began a beautiful all day adventure that included seeing animals, a falcon demonstration, wonderful meal, music and Emirate entertainment, and much more, all inside a replica of a desert fort. The information shared and memories made that day will last a lifetime. This is a first class tour from beginning to end and not to be missed.

Totally worth the money and time. The tour staff and hosts were nothing short of awesome for the entire journey. No hidden fees, no charge-ups, they organize everything so you enjoy your trip to the fullest. Note that there is a private VIP trip offered too, I would recommend the regular one because of all the people you get to meet, which is half the fun. This is a must-do if coming to Dubai for the first time.
