Overview

Experience the wildlife and beauty of the desert by night on this private experience from Dubai. As dusk falls, board a private, vintage Land Rover for a wildlife-spotting drive around the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve. With a private driver, roam the dunes and use the night-vision binoculars and headlights to spot nocturnal animals foraging in the darkness. Then, relax at a royal desert retreat with a delicious 2-course dinner and stargazing session with an astronomer-guide. In summer, upgrade to enjoy your wildlife drive in a plush Range Rover.
  • Roam the Dubai desert after dark to seek out nocturnal animals with your expert guide
  • Watch for wildlife with night-vision binoculars provided in your Range Rover or a vintage 1950s Land Rover
  • Relax over snacks at a star-lit desert camp and perhaps smoke a shisha (Arabic water pipe)
  • Receive the undivided attention of your guide on this private tour

Departure Point

Traveler pickup is offered
Pick-up times will vary through-out the year. In order for you to plan your day, please be prepared for a pick-up between 5:30pm and 6:30pm.

A confirmation with a precise pickup time will be sent to your email or phone latest 3:00pm on the day of the excursion. If we were not able to reach you, we kindly ask you to contact our office.

Departure Time

5:30 PM
In the late afternoon, depart your central Dubai hotel by private, air-conditioned minivan. With your private driver-guide at the wheel, cruise into the desert that surrounds Dubai.

As you travel, hear about the local ecology and the efforts to preserve the flora and fauna of this natural wilderness.

Pull up at a royal retreat among the dunes. Owned by members of the local royal family, the camp sits in the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, a protected area dedicated to helping preserve the desert ecosystem.

On arrival, swap your minivan for your private wildlife-watching vehicle, with a private driver. Hop inside a vintage 1950s Land Rover, or if you’ve upgraded (summer only), settle into a luxurious Range Rover.

Then, as darkness falls, drive around the twilit dunes and plains in search of wildlife. As you roam, learn how the reserve is home to Arabian oryx, gazelles, hares, and many other creatures. Hear how both nocturnal and even some daylight animals use the cool and cover of evening to feed and forage.

Soak in the stillness and watch the headlight beams to detect any movement in the sands. Use the provided night-vision binoculars to zoom in on any animals you spot. 

Afterward, savor a 2-course dinner at the torchlit camp. Smoke a shisha (Arabic water pipe) if you wish, and with tips from an astronomer-guide, scan the star-spangled sky to learn about the constellations above.

Later, return to Dubai, where your tour finishes with a hotel drop-off.

Duration: 1 hour 
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve
After about an hour, arrive at the camp and swap your minivan for your private safari vehicle: a vintage 1950s Land Rover. Then, with your private guide at the wheel, head into the surrounding desert in search of nocturnal wildlife. With your torches illuminating the way, roam the desert as your guide tells you about the animals that become active in the cool temperatures and cover of darkness. Drink in the deep silence and cool desert air, both refreshing contrasts to the heat and bustle of Dubai. Keep a close watch on the headlight beams and use the night-vision binoculars provided to detect movements and zoom in on any animals. Even daylight creatures often emerge in the evening to drink, feed and play - keep your eyes peeled!

After about 90 minutes on safari, head back to your camp for dinner and Astronomy. Sink into cushions and breathe in the fresh desert air.

Die Wüsten-Nachsafari war sehr gut organisiert und interessant, nur hätte diese 1 Stunde früher anfangen müssen. Diese Stunde fehlte im Wüstencamp. Kaum war das gute Abendessen aufgegessen, blieb keine Zeit mehr, die Gläser mit nicht-alkoholischen Getränken zu leeren oder sich entspannt zurückzulehnen. Der nächste, interessante Part der Sternenbeobachtung und Sternenkunde stand an. Danach ging es schnurstracks direkt zum Hotel zurück. Bei diesem Preisniveau darf eine zusätzliche Stunde im Wüstencamp erwartet werden.
