Know More about this tour
In the early evening, depart your Dubai hotel by air-conditioned 4 wheel drive vehicle. Your knowledgeable and experienced safari guide will point out landmarks of Dubai and share a wealth of knowledge about the desert, it’s history and importance as you drive out to the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve. After approximately 45 minutes you will enter the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, a unique reserve, funded by its visitors to conserve the natural beauty and biodiversity of the Arabian Desert.
After a gentle drive through the desert you will stop at the top of a sand dune to watch the sun-setting over the dunes, an unmissable photo opportunity. Next you will take a short drive to our Bedouin-style camp where desert activities and a camp fire await you. You can try a variety of desert activities for the adventurous - try a ride on the 'ship of the desert’, more commonly known as the camel and sand-boarding. Then relax on large carpets and cushions set within our tents and henna hand-painting. You will enjoy an Arabic style, three-course buffet while enjoying unlimited soft drinks and watching a belly dancing performance. Enjoy the tranquility of the desert as we turn off the camp lights for a few minutes so that you can see the beauty of the stars in the night sky.
Your adventure ends with a drive back to Dubai and drop off to your hotel at 11pm.
