The headout at Safari Desert was extremely perfect, I enjoyed myself, the driver that drove the car through the desert was extremely perfect driver and me that I was in the car for a ride to go the desert had a vast experience and the camel ride was fabulous, i like it. The dancers really entertained us and I enjoyed serve yourself food that was given to us.....To crown it all, it was a wonderful experience in Safari Desert Dubai and i enjoyed the land cruiser ride that came to pick me up and drop at the main lounge close to my Hotel (Vienna Hotel). Thank you.

Comfortable Pick-Up in Dubai

5:30am onwards

Enjoy a hassle-free and smooth pick-up from your accommodation. Your destination is the well-known Dubai Conservation Reserve – a government-protected wildlife region – and you’ll travel there by a shared or private air-conditioned vehicle, according to the ticket option you choose during the booking.

Settle Down & Take in the Charming Bedouin Camp

7:45am onwards

On reaching the traditional Bedouin camp, you’ll be given an Adventure Pack containing a headscarf, stainless steel water bottle, and a bag. This is included in your ticket and can be taken home after the desert safari. Settle in the camp, meet the Bedouin community, and get ready for the main event of this heritage safari experience!

Witness a Magnificant Performance of Falconry & Other Birds of Prey

8am onwards

You’ll be treated to an exquisite show of falconry – an integral and ancient part of the Arabian desert life and culture. Considered to be a “cultural heritage of humanity” by UNESCO, falconry is art for Emiratis and this is a huge tribute to that art. For 75-minutes, you’ll be treated to performances and aerial tricks by birds of prey like falcons, eagles, and owls. Fret not, you won’t just be a bystander! Take part in this interactive experience by learning how to handle the birds and letting them perch on your gloved hand.

After this show, if you’d like, take a short camel ride around the camp.

Savor a Delicious Bedouin Breakfast

9:15am onwards

If this is your first time trying a traditional Emirati breakfast, you’re in store for a great gastronomical experience. The meal is prepared by on-site chefs with the freshest local produce. Your breakfast includes regag Arabic bread, foul medames, chabab, and an array of fresh fruit. Sip on aromatic coffee, tea, or juice and relax in the magical desert atmosphere.

End with a Nature Safari by Vintage Land Rover
