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

Luxury 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.

Really interesting and enjoyable tour. Food was good met some interesting people. Tip for other travellers, take something warm to wear, we were freezing! May have just been unlucky for the time of year January when the company phoned to confirm pick up time they did I advise us to bring something warm, but long trousers and a hoodie would have been better than a cardi !

What a fantastic time. This visit is worth every penny, our guide Housamme included a stop to see the racing camels, these animals are lean and in beautiful condition, worth a visit. We then arrived at the start of our journey into the reserve we hopped on to an open top 1950's jeep, we were all given head scarves to cover our heads from the sand. Our journey included the history of the desert, our guide housamme explained that the Ghaf tree was an important part of a Bedouins life as the tree was used for medicinal purposes, the desert boasts of all sorts of animals but on this occasion we were only able to spot an oynx in the distance, still a beautiful sight. We stopped of to walk in the sand dunes, I have never seen sand that is so fine, just beautiful. Our next port of call was the falconry, were we were given a glass of juice on entrance and mats to sit on to enjoy the falconry display. On our way for our meal we did a bit of Dune bashing, which was quite fun. On entrance to the Bedouin camp, we were given the history of their coffee, we were shown the various stages from grinding the coffee bean to the finished product, and then given a taster of the coffee. Our guide Housamme showed us to our table, we were greeted with various salads, Arab breads and sauces, the starters were delicious. There were various cold drinks, bottled water, fizzy drinks and hot drinks, coffee, tea and hot chocolate to choose from. We lined up to a hot buffet, the meat on offer was lamb, camel in a sauce, chicken kebabs, rice, all deliciously cooked, deserts included honey donuts and fresh fruit. The entertainment included a lady dancing the hair dance and a group of guys dancing the traditional Arab way. We enjoyed the activities which included riding a camel and having a henna tattoo. the whole experience was just wonderful and helped with the fact we had the most amazing guide, whom we never stopped laughing with. Houssame thank you, you made our trip to the desert a memorable occasion.

Excelente escolha. Pedi um tour em português e nosso guia foi espetacular . Artonio Tony, alem de bastante conhecimento sobre a cidade e o tour era bem simpatico e sempre pronto a responder nossas duvidas. O grupo era de vários países, por isso o idioma predominante era o ingles, mas não foi um problema pra nos. Tour dividido em varias etapas, todas muito interessantes. Eu e meu marido somos vegetarianos e mesmo assim pudemos aproveitar o jantar oferecido, pois tínham varias opções de comidas vegetarianas. Tudo muito gostoso. Recomendamos muito esse passeio.

The is an excellent experience. First it allows you to do something in the morning, or if you want a late night before, you can sleep extremely late and still have a days worth of activity. The guide enhanced the experience. As American who have never been anywhere, you really get to experience some different culture. If you are the outgoing type and interactive with the experience, the guide and the other guest in your group, this very well may be the highlight of your vacation. My family never ate camel before. We ate and drank everything they put in front of us, and it was a middle eastern type Thanksgiving feast.
