Dubai Heritage Land Rover Desert Safari with Traditional Dinner & Entertainment

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
The desert around Dubai demands more than a passing look—it’s a place of beauty that showcases the UAE’s Bedouin heritage. This expedition does it justice with several touches not offered on standard tours, including a wildlife safari by vintage Land Rover, falconry display, bread- and coffee-making demos, and a multi-course, desert-camp dinner within a royalty-owned retreat.
  • Visit the Dubai desert in style with a wildlife safari by vintage Land Rover 
  • Try to spot gazelle and oryx in the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve
  • Visit a desert camp in a royal retreat and see a falconry show
  • Feel like a Bedouin with bread-making demos, henna art, and camel riding
  • Multi-course dinner and live dance show included
  • Hassle-free experience with hotel pickup and drop-off in central Dubai
What to Expect
After central Dubai hotel pickup, travel into the desert before settling into a shared, open-top vintage Land Rover—a classic desert workhorse used extensively in the 1950s.  Then, with a skilled driver, trundle through the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, hearing about Dubai’s history and wildlife, and watching for animals such as gazelle and oryx. Stop for a sunset falconry display, and then head to a Bedouin-style desert camp within a private royal retreat. Here, enjoy an Arabic coffee and various Emirati activities like bread-making demonstrations, henna tattoos, and camel riding before sitting at a shared Bedouin-style table for a multi-course local dinner. After a folk-dancing and music show—and optional shisha (Arabic water pipe)—enjoy a minivan transfer to your hotel, where your trip concludes.

From the moment we were picked up and warmly greeted by our guide, the incomparable Saeed, we knew this tour would be special. We were driven to a vast desert area that is actually a preserve for animals native to the region. On our Land Rover tour we saw Arabian oryx and

Fantastic and well organised afternoon/evening trip. Youssef was an excellent, attentive and entertaining guide. For me the opportunity to enter the conservation area and see Arabian oryx and gazelle was the main attraction. The falconry at sunset and the dinner, cultural
