Overview
Make more of Dubai’s Arabian desert by staying overnight in the dunes—something most visitors never experience. With this tour, head for the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve and enjoy a wildlife safari across the sands by classic open-top Land Rover. Then, hit a desert camp for a 4-course dinner and entertainment, including camel riding, falconry, and cooking demos, before sleeping in an Arabic tent under the stars.
Highlights
  • Feel like a Bedouin during a night at a Dubai desert tented retreat
  • Sleep in a tent after a wildlife nature reserve safari by Land Rover
  • Includes campfire dinner, camel ride, food demos, falconry, and dance shows
  • Breakfast at camp and convenient return transfers from Dubai hotels included
What to Expect
Experience the desert at night like a true Bedouin on this overnight expedition from Dubai. After hotel pickup, travel to the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve and enjoy a wildlife-spotting drive by vintage open-top Land Rover. Watch for animals such as the Arabian oryx, gazelle, and desert rodents as your driver-guide fills you in on the desert's natural world and traditional culture. Then, head to a Bedouin-style camp for an evening of entertainment and cultural activities such as falconry displays, cooking demos, and live dance shows, all along with a 4-course dinner under the stars. Sleep in an Arabian tent with a comfortable mattress, blanket, and pillow, and wake the next morning for breakfast before your return transfer to Dubai.

From learning a little about the history of Dubai, to seeing a falcon being trained, through to experiencing a bit of Bedouin culture, this was a intriguing experience. Eric, who was the guide from hotel pick-up to hotel drop-off the next day, was good fun and full of

Hi Ceinalem, Thank you for the wonderful review. We are delighted that you could enjoy this and also label this as a knowledgeable experience. Thank you for coming out on our Overnight Desert Safari which would have been even more fascinating if you had added a Balloon flight. Perhaps we could tempt you to try this next time. Regards, Mabel

Our entire trip was planned around the full Moon. Safety was our primary concern, so we booked with the best, Platinum Heritage. It was luxury all the way. We got picked-up by Tobias, our guide. After we reached the desert, we transferred to a 1972 Land Rover. Oh the colors were

Hi MusratMou, Thank you for taking the time to feedback on your experience. We are so happy that you enjoyed your time with us. We started our Overnight Safari because so many of our guests didn't want to leave and wanted to sleep under the stars, like you, waking up to a beautiful sunrise with birds chirping all around. We hope that we can see you all next year so we can share a coffee and a few tales with our Bedouin in the morning. Thank you for your recommendation. Kind Regards, Mabel

We booked the overnight desert safari with Platinum Heritage because 1) we weren't interested in dune bashing, 2) we wanted an desert overnight option and theirs is in a conservation reserve, and 3) it was highly recommended by a friend. We weren't disappointed in their
