Experience the beautiful and famous Afternoon Heritage Desert Wildlife Safari in Dubai. Take a step back in time and enjoy Dubai as it was once in the Fifties on an adventure in the Dubai wilderness with an expert Safari Guide.
Unlike any other Dubai Desert Safari, we will take you on a captivating wildlife drive in 1950’s antique Land Rovers. As the first motorized cars used in the Dubai desert, these Series 1 and two Land Rovers have become symbolic of Dubai’s heritage.
Spot native wildlife like Arabian oryx in the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve and stop at a Ghaf tree forest in the dunes for the most marvelous picture opportunities in the desert. Learn about the unique wilderness ecosystem and find out how the Bedouin survived in the desert in harmony with the animals and plant life.
Witness a marvelous falcon show led by an expert Falconer and watch these amazing birds in full flight. Learn about ancient training techniques and how the Bedouin used falcons for hunting. Watch the Arabian sun setting as the backdrop over the sand dunes.
Afterward, arrive at an authentic Bedouin camp, gently lit with traditional lamps and nestled inside a private desert retreat. Discover the rich culture and traditions of Dubai’s heritage with live demonstrations of Arabic coffee and bread making, henna painting, camel rides, and traditional performances. Feast on a 4-course dinner under the stars, afterwards set back and relax in our Arabic Majilis area and try some shisha (water – pipe).
