Departure Point

Traveler pickup is offered
We pick up from any hotel in Dubai

Begin your desert experience with a pickup from central Dubai hotel. Enjoy the views as you travel into the desert and swap your pickup vehicle for a shared, open-top vintage Land Rover. 

Then, with an experienced driver at the wheel, set off through the beautiful Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, a protected haven for desert wildlife. On route, listen to interesting stories about Dubai’s history and an introduction to the traditional desert activities on offer this evening.

As you rumble through the sands, look for wildlife such as Arabian gazelles and oryx. Then, as the sun sets, stop for a fascinating display of falconry. Watch as the birds soar through the air and swoop for lures.

Back aboard your Land Rover, drive to a Bedouin-style desert camp in the grounds of a private royal retreat. Admire the beautiful setting of plush tents and outdoor cushions cast in the flickering light of flame torches.

Before dinner, enjoy an array of Emirati activities. Savor an Arabic coffee, watch a bread-making demonstration, get a henna tattoo and take a camel ride.

Next, take a seat at a shared, low Bedouin-style table for a delicious multi-course dinner of Emirati specialities. (See the Itinerary for a sample menu.) Afterward, smoke a shisha (Arabic water pipe) if you wish, and enjoy displays of Arabic folk dancing and music as the stars light up the sky.

Then, ride your Land Rover back through the sands to the camp entrance. Board an air-conditioned minivan and return to Dubai, where your experience ends with a hotel drop-off.

This was a fun trip enhanced by very friendly staff. A special shout out to Amjad our driver guide who was engaging and entertaining. Dropped a star only because of previous personal experiences of the desert, falconry and Jeep safari. Otherwise 5 star all the way and well organized. Small group eco-conscious tour with great food and good traditional entertainment

Highlight of Dubai trip

This tour was definitely the highlight of our Dubai trip. From Pickup at our hotel to drop off the tour guides were friendly and attentive. The open Land Rover desert drive was amazing, although we encountered a flat tire, a replacement vehicle was quickly brought to us so we could continue our tour. The henna artist was very good, the falcon show was amazing, the camel rides were a fun touch. The food was great and traditional dances were quite interesting to watch. I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone interested in desert life.

My wife and I really enjoyed the whole experience of this trip. From start to finish our guide and driver Kumur was friendly, helpful, very knowledgable and just a fun Person to be with. The whole trip was well organised and it was extremely interesting to learn about the culture of the Bedouins people.

Our trip into the Desert was absolutely amazing. We even got to see camel races as we drove east on Route 66. The wildlife got closer and closer and Felix did a fantastic job of keeping us informed while looking after us. The camel ride, the Henna, the falcon display and the dinner, and entertainment were awe inspiring. An excellent experience to be remembered.

Would do this again without hesitation.

We had just come off a two week cruise from Singapore to Dubai. This was -without question- the highlight of the trip. Joel was an incredible guide. He was friendly and knowledgeable, providing great information about Dubai and the UAE from pickup to drop off. The tour itself was amazing. We rode in “Martin”, a vintage open top Land Rover. There were plenty of photo opportunities, including wild birds, antelopes, stunning vistas, a falconry display, and live entertainment at a Bedouin camp. On top of all that was the most delicious dinner followed by some stargazing in the desert. This is an experience not to be missed.

Perfect Desert Evening

This evening tour and company is perfection! We were met my our driver and guide promptly at our hotel. They call or email you during the morning/afternoon with exact pick up time. Note this will happen sometime between 2:30-3:30. Then after picking up other passengers you make your way to the desert! I forget if the ride was a hour or hour and a half but it goes fast has he points out points of interest, answers questions, and a stop at a camel race track. The car is a very clean and comfortable suv from platinum heritage. As soon as you arrive to the desert site you are greeted with a complimentary souvenir bag with water canister and they wrap your head in traditional scarf. Then youre on your way in their vintage Land Rover- coolest part! actually like the pictures. On the drive the point out animals and scenery and a couple of stops to see the sunset, and falcon show. Then to the dinner spot- the atmosphere of the camp was gorgeous ! and the food - so much! and so good!!! They definitely planned this tour perfectly and everyone from platinum heritage is sooo nice and professional and always had smiles on their faces and wanted to make sure you had this best time! Highly Recommend ! 10 stars if I could !
