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. 

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.

This is a much more sophisticated and safer tour instead of climbing the dunes in those 4x4 modern vehicles. The guide speaks perfect portuguese and was very nice. Unique experience.

Wonderful experience! Fahad was an excellent guide and extremely knowledgeable. Falcon show was good and the desert sunset is something not to be missed. Dinner was excellent, with plenty of food. Shisa, henna tattoo and camel ride were all excellent as well. Definitely would recommend this tour!

One of the best tour guides we have ever enjoyed. Ericson is very special and hardworking. Awesome experience from hotel pickup to the end of the tour. Nice commentary enroute. Loved the falconry presentation, camel ride, vintage Land Rover, conservancy tour, dancing, dining, Bedouin camp, coffee,. Can't find the superlative to explain our satisfaction. Well done!!!

THIS IS A MUST DO DESERT TOUR!! Don't look for alternatives-Platinum Heritage Desert Tour is classy, comfortable and one-of-a-kind. It was worth every penny and exceeded all our expectations. Needless to say, it was the best day ever!! It was packed with adventure, culture and information. We were picked up by our guide Tiago in a clean and comfortable SUV and taken to the vintage Land Rover pick up point. The ride in the Land Rover was a thrill and very safe and I would say much more environmentally friendly than dune bashing since animals do reside in the sand. At each stop we were provided with ample opportunity to take photos. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable we learnt much about the Dubai desert, its plants and wildlife, the Bedouins and a history of Dubai. We were greeted at the falconry exhibition with a drink. The falconry show was enjoyable with a breathtaking sunset. We were then taken to the traditional Bedouin camp where there were even more activities, lots to eat and drink much variety and vegan options as well and loads of entertainment, including camel riding, cultural dance and music. There was excellent hospitality all throughout this tour from pick-up to drop off and very classy parting gifts. You even have an opportunity to purchase professional photos and drone videos of the experience, so consider your budget if you want this memento. Keep in mind that part proceeds from this tour goes back to desert conservation so you are positively contributing to the Dubai desert.

I recommend this for authentic safari dinner with cultural respect. Only 80 people so camp doesn't feel crowded. Chose as wanted to do open air landrovers, nature reserve instead of dune bashing. Free camel riding and falcon show, sheeshas. Excellent food. Well worth the extra cost.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2018

Being our first visit to Dubai and with only 2 nights this tour seemed like the perfect introduction to the old Dubai. Loved the vintage jeeps with the open tops driving through the desert dunes, seeing animals grazing in the dessert, the falcon show and of course the camp with traditional dinner and entertainment. Our guide was knowledgable and engaged through the whole night as were the rest of the team. I highly recommend this tour as either a couple or family, just remember to take a warm jacket as it gets freezing at night.
