Quiet time in the dunes, the dancing was a lame and did nothing for me.

As a Mercedes fan I loved the safari, very luxurious

Travel in Style in a Mercedes Beast

3:45pm onwards

Your Al Marmoom Bedouin experience starts with a comfortable pick-up from your hotel in Dubai. You can choose between a shared or private transfer at your convenience. Before entering Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, the largest unfenced natural reserve in the country, you'll switch from a modern car to a Vintage G Class Mercedes 1980s. Soon, you'll be welcomed at a traditional Bedouin Village in Al Marmoon Desert Conservation Reserve with gahwa and sweets.

Sail on the Sand during a Camel Caravan Ride

5:30pm onwards

Experience the desert as the nomads did on a camel caravan ride with your family and friends. You'll get the perfect opportunity to take photographs of the vast sea of sand from a unique vantage point.

Explore the Traditional Bedouin Village

6pm onwards

The Bedouin Village has multiple activities in store for you. The village has Bedouin tents, a restored well, cooking stations, farm animals, and more.

Arabic coffee is a cultural symbol in the Middle East. During this experience, you'll get to watch a live coffee-making session by an Emirati professional! You don't have to settle for a whiff of the delectable coffee scent, you can also sip on the richly made beverage.

Located near the desert oasis, the staff at the camp will narrate fascinating anecdotes and legends about the Bedouin past. You'll also get a chance to see the Arabic cooking style as they make Emirati bread and luqaimat, a sweet dumpling. Get a small henna painting done on your hand as a souvenir from this incredible safari.

Enjoy a 3-Course Dinner, Live Shows, and Stargazing

7:30pm onwards

Tuck into a delicious 3-course dinner at the camp and watch delightful performances that combine modern and traditional Middle Eastern art forms. Guests will also get a chance to don typical Arabian costumes and pose for a photo with the falcon, the UAE's national bird. Your evening will become more glamorous with the onset of the live shows that include a fire show and a Tanoura show.

Towards the end of your evening, you'll get to use a telescope to gaze into the evening sky and listen to stories of how the Bedouin used stars for navigation. The staff will then switch off all the lights at the camp - an authentic desert experience in the calm of the evening.
