Enjoy a Afternoon Heritage Desert Wildlife Safari and stay overnight in your private Arabic stone dwelling in the Heritage camp in the Royal desert retreat. Awake to the peace of the desert in the morning and relish a gourmet breakfast.

About this activity

Spend the night in the heart of the Dubai desert on this Overnight Desert Safari. This immersive camping safari ticks all the boxes and takes you back in time to experience Dubai as it was once before the city was born, in the wilderness, and under the stars.

Start your journey by exploring the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve on a wildlife drive in 1950’s antique Land Rovers and spot wildlife like Arabian oryx and gazelles. Along the way, your Conservation Guide will share insights about the wilderness and all its inhabitants.

Watch an enjoyable falcon show and see how these agile birds fly to lures. Take in the stunning views of the Arabian sun setting over the golden sand dunes while the expert falconer presents the wonderful falcon to soar the skies. Learn about the cultural significance of falconry in Dubai and get fantastic image opportunities in this magical desert setting.

Arrive at a genuine Bedouin camp to enjoy an unforgettable night immersed in cultural things to do like Arabic coffee and bread making demonstrations, camel rides, henna painting, a traditional Yola dance, and Arabic drumming. After the 4-course dinner, sit back and relax in the traditional Majilis or around the bonfire under the starry sky with the most effective shisha and the company of fellow travelers. Retire to your overnight room, an ordinary Arabic stone dwelling complete with bedding. Wake to the stillness of the fresh desert in the morning to a gourmet breakfast of hand-cut salmon, Eggs Benedict, fruit platters, and more. For the more adventurous, experience a Hot Air Balloon Flight over the wilderness at sunrise(not included in this tour).

This Overnight Desert Safari gives a full journey of the desert, the captivating cultural heritage of Dubai, and lets you enjoy the Dubai desert at night!
