Desert Experience: Camel Safari with Dinner and Emirati Activities from Dubai
From US$163.50
Exploring Dubai’s desert on a DIY trip won’t give you the full-on Arabian camp experience. This excursion delivers it with a difference: incorporating a longer-than-usual camel ride, a falconry show, and activities like bread- and coffee-making demos, while giving the standard dune bash a miss. Ride a camel to a tented camp, enjoy the activities as you wish, and savor a 4-course dinner and dancing shows before returning to Dubai.
What to Expect
After pickup from your central Dubai hotel, travel into the desert by air-conditioned minivan. Meet your camel convoy and enjoy a 45-minute ride across the sands to a Bedouin-inspired camp set within a reserve owned by the UAE’s royal family.

Take in the atmosphere of the torch-lit compound, and as the sun sets, watch a falconry demonstration. Stroll into the dunes for sunset photos, and enjoy the activities on offer inside the Bedouin-style tent—getting a henna tattoo, sipping Arabic coffee, and watching bread- and coffee-making demonstrations.

Next, settle at a low table for a 4-course dinner of Emirati dishes served with soda and mineral water. See the Itinerary for a sample menu.

Afterward, opt to try a shisha (Arabic water pipe), and enjoy live dancing and music displays under the stars before your trip concludes with a hotel drop-off in Dubai.

Saeed was Great! Amazing experience in the Desert.

Saeed, a most excellent guide picked us up at our hotel and off we went to the desert. Driving through the dunes, seeing the wildlife and learning about their conservancy was enlightening. The falconry demonstration by Esme was wonderful. Then a camel ride to dinner...More

In my opinion, the camel part of the ride wouldn't be a problem. You would need to check with the tour operators regarding the jeep ride to the Bedouin camp and them back to the cars.is the best advice. I am not a medical... More

Personally, I don't think you would have a problem with the camel part of the tour. After the falconry display, there is a 4WD back to the Bedouin camp and then from the camp back to the transport. That is quite bumpy, so... More
