Desert Experience: Camel Safari with Dinner and Emirati Activities from Dubai
From US$163.50
Overview
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.

Camel safari

Thanks to all for a fantastic experience. The guides were very knowledgeable and ready to answer all our questions. Camels were great fun and we saw wildlife in the desert. Dinner and entertainment was excellent. Can't rate this trip highly enough.More

Riding camels in the desert!

Had a great time riding camels and learning about the culture. We took our 9 year old and he had a great time. Our guide Amir was amazing!

Not a good idea. We brought our 9 year old and it was ok. If you bring a kiddo, they need to be able to ride the camel by themself. Otherwise, you won't have a good time
