All-Inclusive Dune Dinner Safari in the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve
US$107.63
Overview
The Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve sits just south of the city and comprises one of the UAE’s most prized dune and wildlife zones. With this tour, you’ll visit this special reserve and enjoy a host of activities. Take a dune drive to look for wildlife and plants, watch a falconry display, and visit a Bedouin-style camp for desert activities, plus dinner and live entertainment under the stars.
What to Expect
Leave your Dubai hotel by climate-controlled 4WD vehicle and pass some of the city’s landmarks en route to the desert.

After a roughly 45-minute journey, arrive at Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, a national park dedicated to preserving the desert’s natural beauty and wildlife.

Here, take a leisurely drive around the dunes, watching for wildlife, such as oryx and gazelle, seeing plant species, and learning about the desert’s place in Emirati culture.

Stop for a falconry display (subject to weather) and photos of the sunset, and then relax at a Bedouin-style camp in the sands. Enjoy a selection of activities, such as henna art, sandboarding, and camel riding, and savor a buffet dinner with unlimited beer and wine (except during Ramadan and religious holidays).

Lastly, lounge on carpets as you watch a belly dancing show and observe the night sky before your outing ends with a hotel drop-off.

Super fun - very touristy though

Had lots of fun, even though it was very touristy. Our tour guide was Fahim - he did an amazing job ;)

A MUST DO WHEN IN DUBAI

We had the most wonderful time with Wajid, our very funny and informative guide and expert driver on this excursion. The most thrilling part was the dune drive which Wajid made a lot of fun. The dinner at the man made oasis was very well...More

Amazing experience!

Alex was our tour guide and driver. It was easy to realize he was the leader of the vehicle convoy. He was an excellent driver and that made us feel very safe at the dunes roller coaster. We had a blast!! The dinner was delicious....More

You have the option to sit up the front if that helps, I probably wouldn’t as it’s very very hot and you are in the car driving up and over dunes for approx an hour. Whilst it’s not a wild ride by any means you do climb up... More

I’ve done this safari now more than 10 times and henna painting has always been available. Sand boarding is more weather/wind affected so is a little less reliable. Wasn’t available the last trip I took but that didn’t spoil... More

On our trip they did switch off the lights for a couple of minutes, but it was NOT proper star gazing.
