Heritage Desert Safari in vintage 4x4 and traditionnal dinner and night at a Bedouin camp


The Heritage Desert Safari is a unique excursion in Dubai, not to be missed for those who want to experience their safari in the purest local Bedouin tradition. For this extraordinary adventure, your vehicle of choice will be the iconic open roof Land Rover, a real collector's car from the 60's, belonging to the Sheik's private collection!

Your guide and driver will lead you to a scenic safari through a wildlife natural reserve. You will have the chance to observe the local fauna and flora during your drive in the open roof land rover, before stopping at the top of the dunes, perfect time for souvenir pictures.

At sunset time, comfortably sitted on carpets and cushions at the top of a dune, you will take part to a royal falcon demonstration by a professional falcon trainer. You will then be told about the caracteristics of this amazing hunting bird and national symbol of the UAE.

The rest of the program will set in a genuine Bedouin camp, one of 2 only (see Luxury Desert Safari), located on the lands of the royal family of Dubai. 

Upon arrival at the camp you will be greeted the local way with refreshing rose water, traditionnal arabic gawa (coffee) and fresh dates.

Grab the opportunity to get a traditional henna tattoo or take a souvenir photo on a camel's back!

Your hosts at the camp you will teach you the traditionnal recipe of bread baking by the bedouins. They will also reveal the secrets of traditional Emirati cooking before you enjoy the delicious food freshly prepared and cooked at the camp. 

Pay attention to the furniture used in the camp, carved from the wood of dead tree trunks of the surronding regions. Later on, comfortably set under on local rugs and cushions, enjoy a traditionnal emirati dance show with a shisha (smoking pipes/hooka) to end this special evening.

A Majlis (large beduin tent made of goat hair) will be set for you to spend the night after the end of the evening program. Tents will be partitioned for each group sleeping at the camp, based on the number of participants, for your own privacy. Mattresses, sheets, blankets and pillows will be provided. The camp has toilets and sinks with water, however, being part of a conservation reserve, it does not have showers for water conservation principles. (Return to the hotel will be at about 10am the next morning).

A traditional emirati breakfast prepared at the camp will be served to you the day after. You will then be joined by a local bedouin who you will share with you his stories and tales of the desert and will answer all your questions with the help of a translator. 

The maximum number of passengers per vehicle is 6 people. Participants who would like to book this activity with children under 5 will have to privatize a vehicle for their safari.
