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.

Once in a lifetime premium experience

If you are going to book a desert tour I don’t think you can go wrong with Platinum Heritage. Despite there being a lot of people at the camp, they set it up perfectly by grouping everyone into smaller tours of about 6-10 people. We...More

Fun with Camels

If you come all the way to Dubai I recommend you try this. Going on the camel and taking shots of it was very fun. The ride is a bit too long and it may hurt your hips after a while, but its; something to...More

It would be cutting it close. We were staying at a hotel on the Dubai Creek picked up at 3pm and then collected one other couple at a different hotel. It really would depend on your plane landing on time, how quickly you got... More
