FAQs

WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY DESERT CAMEL SAFARI?
Platinum Heritage only operates with in-house camels and Conservation Guides. This means that we have very limited capacity and quite often sell out weeks in advance. Once you have confirmed your travel plans, it is strongly suggested that you book your desert camel safari before you arrive to avoid disappointment. Our online booking system contains live inventory so you can see if seats are still available.
WHAT TIME WILL I BE PICKED UP FOR MY AFTERNOON HERITAGE SAFARI TOUR?
We never want our guests to be sitting for long periods in the lobby of their hotel. Instead we prefer to give a precise pick-up. However, there are numerous factors which make it impossible to provide a precise pick-up time at the time of booking. At the time of booking, you will have a 1 hour range to help you plan your day. We will then take the following steps on the day of your safari…

1. Phone you at your Hotel room and advise you of the pick-up time. If you are not in the room…
We leave a message with the Concierge

2. If you are not in the room and we were not provided with an email address, we will phone or leave a text message on the international number you provided.If you have not received a message by 1pm on the day of your tour, please phone 04 4409827.
MY HOTEL IS NOT LISTED. WHERE WILL YOU PICK ME UP FROM?
We list the most popular hotels (from a possible 650 hotels and apartments in Dubai). However, we will pick you up from any hotel in Dubai. Please phone 04 440 9827 for information about pick-ups from other Emirates as additional charges may apply.
DO I NEED TO TIP MY CONSERVATION GUIDE?
Many of our guests want to recognise the tremendous contribution our Conservation Guides make to their experience. However, there are no obligations to include a gratuity and if you do, the amount depends completely on your generosity.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR IN THE DESERT?
The weather in the Dubai desert is very different to in the city. During the day, loose-fitting clothing and shoes that can be easily removed (flip flops/sandals/thongs) are best. However, at night, please use the following as a guide:

May-October – Loose clothing, shorts, t-shirts, etc
November – April – Dress in layers.
It can become quite cold in the desert as soon as the sunsets. Especially between December-February, the temperature can get down below 10 degrees Celsius. Jeans, closed shoes, shirts, cardigans or even a jacket is required on cooler nights in the desert.
WHY ARE THERE ALCOHOL RESTRICTIONS?
As the saying goes, when in Rome, do as the Romans do! Alcohol is generally not permitted in the Arabic culture, and while the Rulers of the country have shown great flexibility in allowing service in hotels, we are committed to stay true to local traditions and showcase the authenticity, warmth and hospitality of this region. For these reasons we do not serve alcohol on our tours.
HOW CAN WE DONATE PROCEEDS TOWARDS DESERT CONSERVATION?
You already do! A portion of your fee is donated towards Conservation of the UAE desert. We provide support for a protected area which ensures the future of the region’s desert habitats and bio-diversity. It is managed according to sound scientific ecological principles, aimed at protecting natural resources and maintaining original desert landscapes. Please let us know if you would like to make an additional contribution.
ARE THERE ANY DANGEROUS ANIMALS (SPIDERS, SNAKES, SCORPIONS) AT THE DESERT CAMP?
Bedouins would build their camps on the top of sand dunes for many reasons; to catch any cool winds, to avoid low areas susceptible to flash floods, to keep watch on approaching tribes, and to avoid snakes and scorpions which prefer low lying brush. Platinum Heritage has constructed the industry’s first camp sitting on top of a dune.

Other desert safari companies build in a “pocket” in order to protect against heavy winds. However, this comes with the disadvantage of being very hot in summer and very cold in winter. Not to mention that they become the unwilling home to lots of creepy crawlies like spiders, scorpions and snakes which prefer low lying areas. We can avoid this and take advantage of the cool Dubai afternoon breeze, using nature’s natural air-conditioning and pest control.
MY ENGLISH IS NOT TOO GOOD. CAN I PAY FOR A TRANSLATOR?
If you speak Arabic, Russian, German, Italian, French, Spanish or Portuguese, our talented team will be able to help you for no additional cost. Please just let us know at the time of booking so we can try to accommodate your request.
WILL OUR DESERT CAMEL SAFARI BE CANCELLED IF THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE BOOKED?
Tours require a minimum number of guests to operate. Minimum guest numbers differ between tours and are subject to change at any time. If a tour is cancelled due to minimum guest numbers not being reached, guests will be offered an alternate tour option or be provided with a full refund.
WILL MY DESERT CAMEL SAFARI BE CANCELLED IF THERE IS BAD WEATHER?
Our camp is located approximately halfway between the cities of Dubai and Al Ain. Dubai experiences a coastal weather system that is usually associated with high winds and rain around 5-7 days per year. Al Ain is at the base on a mountain-range and is subject to higher of concentrations rainfall.

Our camp is located between the two weather systems and does not usually enjoy rainfall as high as either centre. It is due to this lack of rain that there are a great deal less trees and plants in the desert than in either city. So, if you see a weather report for rain and storms in Dubai, quite often the sun is shining with vivid blue skies at our camp. Please check with us before changing your plans. If the tour is not able to operate due to inclement weather, compensation will be automatically offered.
DO YOU ACCOMMODATE VEGETARIAN OR VEGAN GUESTS OR THOSE WITH ALLERGIES?
We are happy to accommodate your food/dietary requirements. We have many dishes that are vegetarian so you will still have a variety to enjoy. Please inform us at the time of booking if you have any food allergies.
