Overview
The desert around Dubai demands more than a passing look—it’s a place of beauty that showcases the UAE’s Bedouin heritage. This expedition does it justice with several touches not offered on standard tours, including a wildlife safari by vintage Land Rover, falconry display, bread- and coffee-making demos, and a multi-course, desert-camp dinner within a royalty-owned retreat.
Highlights
  • Visit the Dubai desert in style with a wildlife safari by vintage Land Rover 
  • Try to spot gazelle and oryx in the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve
  • Visit a desert camp in a royal retreat and see a falconry show
  • Feel like a Bedouin with bread-making demos, henna art, and camel riding
  • Multi-course dinner and live dance show included
  • Hassle-free experience with hotel pickup and drop-off in central Dubai
What to Expect
After central Dubai hotel pickup, travel into the desert before settling into a shared, open-top vintage Land Rover—a classic desert workhorse used extensively in the 1950s.  Then, with a skilled driver, trundle through the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, hearing about Dubai’s history and wildlife, and watching for animals such as gazelle and oryx. Stop for a sunset falconry display, and then head to a Bedouin-style desert camp within a private royal retreat. Here, enjoy an Arabic coffee and various Emirati activities like bread-making demonstrations, henna tattoos, and camel riding before sitting at a shared Bedouin-style table for a multi-course local dinner. After a folk-dancing and music show—and optional shisha (Arabic water pipe)—enjoy a minivan transfer to your hotel, where your trip concludes.

Great alternative to the dune bashing stuff... Super convenient with the hotel pickup. Loved the retro land rovers and the drive through the desert reserve where we saw oryx and gazelle. Our 7 year old said it was his favourite thing from Dubai.
