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 fascinated as the magnificent 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. Here, board an air-conditioned minivan and return to Dubai, where your experience ends with a hotel drop-off.

Outstanding tour, great hosts/guides. The perfect length tour, pick up in late afternoon and return in the evening. This has everything needed in a tour: Desert drive with info about flora/fauna, falconry show, camels, dinner and a show. Excellent food.
