Desert Experience: Camel Safari with Dinner and Emirati Activities from Dubai
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.

Eceptional Experience

From the pick-up at my hotel and the return, a very wonderful experience. Friendly and informative guide who made everyone on board comfortable and VIP. Looking after all in his group at every step of the adventure.

Very well done, and exceptional customer service

The entire experience was well done. Rashid, our driver, was a very nice fellow. As a solo traveler, I had the benefit of sitting up front with him. Since the other passengers were engaged in conversations, he gave me a private commentary on the 50-minute...More

Trip by vintage Land Rovers to the desert, dinner and entertainment in the Bedouin tradition

This was the highlight of our Swiss company 4-day trip to Dubai in my opinion. Our group of 20 colleagues took the trip in vintage Land Rovers in the desert. We were about 70 km from Dubai. We saw the stunning scenery of sand dunes...More
