Platinum Heritage Desert Safari

Hi

I wonder if anyone can tell me if it is worth paying the extra £130+ per person to take the Platinum Dinner safari than the Heritage one. We are 3 adults and the extra is quite substantial if you dont get much different.

Many thanks

For people to make a fair comparison they would have had to do both and even then that will be their opinion based on their experience so I think the only thing you can do is decide if it is worth it for you by looking at the differences on the web site and the trip advisor reviews.

I have done the Heritage Safari dinner and would say that we thought that was superb and worth the extra money for that over and above what you would usually pay for a desert safari with other operators for several reasons

we loved the journey through the dunes in the 1950s Landrover

the opportunity to see animals in their natural habitat

the falcon display

the more intimate style of camp

the food at the camp was more individual around 40 people rather than the hundreds you often get at the main camps

I have not done the Platinum Desert safari experience so cannot comment on the differences but this link to the Trip Advisor specific review site for the company may help you learn more from the experiences of those that have done the Platinum experience

That's a really useful link - thank you!

Does anyone know if snake charmers are ever part of the entertainment?
