Why Travelers Choose This Tour
A step up from standard desert trips, this offers a longer-than-usual camel ride, and dinner at a luxe camp.
Begin your experience with a pickup from your central Dubai hotel. Settle inside your air-conditioned minivan and relax as travel into the desert.
Meet your camel convoy and enjoy a leisurely ride on a camel. Enjoy the views as your camel lumbers across the sands: you soon understand how these hardy herbivores provide ideal transport for nomadic Bedouins.
Then, arrive at a Bedouin-style camp inside a desert retreat owned by the UAE royal family. The compound stands amid rolling dunes and is illuminated by flame torches, giving it a truly Arabian feel.
As the sun sets, watch a falconry demonstration. Admire the speed and elegance of the falcons as they answer their handlers’ commands and swoop for lures.
Stroll into the dunes for photos of the sunset and enjoy a range of traditional desert activities inside a rustic-style Arabian tent. Sip Arabic coffee, get a henna tattoo, and learn to make Arabic breads during a step-by-step demonstration.
Next, settle at a low Bedouin table for a 4-course feast of typical Emirati dishes with sodas and mineral water. See the Itinerary for a sample menu.
Following dinner, choose to smoke a shisha (Arabic water pipe) and watch a display of traditional dancing and music under the stars.
Return to Dubai in your minivan and end your experience with a hotel drop-off.
Pick-up from Dubai hotels between 2:30pm and 4:30pm.
Arrive at an authentic torch-lit Bedouin camp. Be entertained by traditional Henna tattoos, live bread making, Arabic coffee making, camel rides and aromatic shisha pipes.Dinner includes soup, salad, appetiser, main course and dessert. Enjoy cultural Emirati entertainment performances such as drumming and Yola.
Excellent organisation! So much information in advance and perfect service. This was a great experience! Cars are in perfect condition, Camel riding takes nearly up to an hour, Falconry show is awesome and the food is excellent. You guys deserve a recommendation 10 out of 10 times 👍
Great experience, very enjoyable. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Pick-up was prompt from port. Camel ride was amazing, about 45-60min in length. Falcon show was interesting. Dinner/BBQ at the camp was very good. Overall would definitely recommend this, well worth the price.
Would have liked more time on camels. Everyone in our group thought it was a great experience! Tops was the time with camels. 2nd was the Falconry demo. 3rd was the food, both how it was cooked and prepared and the taste - although we are not convinced the team really understands "Gluten-free". 4th would be the time with the camels out back - although you should advertise more that they were available. Finally, least favorite would have been the Shisha smoking and the traditional dance. I would have preferred cutting them in favor possibly of more time with or riding the camels.
The photo ops and opportunity to buy photos taken from terra firma was welcome. Plus the photographer stationed knew exactly where to position himself.
Excellent trip ! We really enjoy camel trip around 45 minutes in the desert. Staff very friendly.
Bedouin Camp very interesting with show, music and good food. Pick up and come back to hotel from Dubai. Water was provided by company.
I recommend this Camel Desert Safari. Very good for children also.
This excursion was absolutely perfect!!! A slow camel ride through the desert, dancing with drums by the men, traditional dinner, henna, shisha pipe, and a moment of quiet to view the stars in the sky! I had an amazing 50th Birthday! Thank You!
Fantastic experience on the camel caravan. Excellent communication from Platinum in regards to the forthcoming trip. Our guide was Nikki, I have to say he was superb and knowledgeable. Attentive to our groups needs. I have to say a special thank you to him. Food was gorgeous no complaints at all. I would definitely use these again on our next trip.
