Start your experience with a pickup from your centrally located Dubai hotel, and then head into the desert in an air-conditioned minivan. Here, meet your camel convoy and clamber onto your own ship of the desert.
Sit high up and enjoy the views as your camel lumbers through the desert — you’ll soon see why these stoic creatures made perfect transport for the nomadic Bedouins. After around 45 minutes, your camel safari ends when you reach your Bedouin-inspired camp where you will meet your guide. Situated within a private royal retreat, this exclusive camp is lit by flickering lamps and surrounded by rolling dunes.
As the sun fades, enjoy an exciting display of the ancient sport of falconry. Watch as the trained falcons fly and swoop down for lures from their handlers. Then, after a sunset photo stop amid the dunes, enter a Bedouin-style tent for an array of traditional desert activities. Sip Arabic coffee, get a tattoo from henna artists and watch a bread-making demonstration to learn how to make Arabic bread.
Then, sit at a low Bedouin table for a delicious, 4-course Emirati banquet served with water and sodas. See the itinerary for a sample menu.
After dinner, enjoy traditional dancing and music and perhaps try a shisha. Then, return to Dubai where a driver and air-conditioned minivan will drop you off at your hotel.

We loved every part of our Safari from the minute we were picked up right to the drop off. Our guide was so great explaining everything and went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. It's a must do experience!
Fabulous tour with great tour guide. Very helpful with people of all ages and sizes for getting onto camels and then a great falcon show and dinner
Start to finish it was first class service. Each part of the evening was well planned out and relaxing. You gotta do the camel ride!
From start to finish very professional, well organised and informative. Our guide Asim was fantastic and we all learned a great deal about the culture of the area. The camel ride was great fun.
well organized. jacob our guide was the ultimate professional. the culture was well explained and the food was great. The camel ride was maybe a little long but still a great part of the adventure. We would strongly recommend this trip to anyone visiting dubai
Excellently put together day/evening. You get dropped off and get a bag with a water bottle to fill up and a head scarf. You then get put on your camel and go for a long walk. The camels seem content. You get a little saddle-sore, but that's why you're there, right? They occasionally will stop and will take your photo for you with your camera. After the camel ride, you get to wash your hands and sit with a glass of grape juice and watch a falconry demonstration, which is far more impressive than you would expect. Finally, you are driven to the camp where the evening begins. There's entertainment with participation, food, drinks including camel milk, star-gazing... Quite an evening. It was sad when it ended. They even catered to my boyfriend's celiac dietary needs - you just have to let them know.
Enjoyed every minute of it, from the camel ride to the dinner, the falcon show and the music and dancing.
This was the best part of our trip! We were so glad that we paid more for this trip because the service was exceptional and the entire experience was perfect from start to finish.
This was a great tour to do.Very well organised. Camel ride was very comfortable. Food was great and plentiful. The company was very professional
There were many of these desert safaris to pick from, and I was glad I chose this one. Our guide Karola was very helpful and informative. I had never been to this region of the world, so I wanted to experience a taste of the area. Enjoyed the camel ride, it was nice to get up close to the falcon, and the dinner camp and related demonstrations and experiences were really fun! Plenty of food, so come hungry!
Ride a camel through the desert and enjoy dinner at a Bedouin-inspired camp on this exciting 7-hour experience. Leave Dubai in an air-conditioned minivan and swap your vehicle for a camel for a memorable 45-minute ride to an exclusive desert camp amid the dunes. As the sun sets, enjoy a host of traditional Arabic activities: see a falconry demonstration and cookery displays, get a henna tattoo, and watch traditional dancing under the stars. The finale comes with a scrumptious 4-course banquet of Emirati dishes served Bedouin style.
