Start your dinner in the desert experience with a pickup from your Dubai hotel, and then travel into the desert aboard your Range Rover, a luxury mode of transport with spacious seating. As you travel, your guide will regale you with stories of Dubai’s past and present as well as the many customs and traditions that you’ll experience throughout the evening.
Head through Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, for an African inspired Wildlife Safari, looking out for wildlife such as Arabian gazelles and oryx, and then hop out of your Range Rover to watch the UAE’s National Bird the Falcon perform at dazzling speeds in front of you.
The falcon is the national bird of the United Arab Emirates, and so falconry displays are popular events. Gaze at the magnificent birds of prey looping through the sky and swooping down to the trainers’ gloved fists, and get close-up-and-personal with the birds for a photo, if you wish.
After the display, enjoy a camel ride to a quiet and peaceful sanctuary, and admire your tranquil surroundings, illuminated by flame torches and antique gas lamps. Then, all that’s left to do is enjoy your 6-course dinner — cooked nearby by your private chef — under the twinkling stars. Your menu features flavors from the Middle East and Asia.
In between eating, you can enjoy a selection of experiences, such as a flaming sands of Arabia show and henna tattooing. You can smoke a
shisha pipe (Arabic water pipe) if you wish! Alternatively, just enjoy your food in the romantic private sanctuary.
When you have finished your meal, your guide will pick you up by Range Rover. Leave the site, and then journey back through the desert to finish your experience with a drop-off at your Dubai hotel.

Excellent tour of the desert, hawk show, camel ride, lots of photo opportunity. Food was great especially camel!
Friendly staff on private tour. Belly dancing, shisha smoking, walking bare footed in the cool desert sand was a blessing.
What a fabulous excursion, book this and you will have the time of your life !!!! The driver, Hamdy, picked us up promptly at our hotel in a sparkly clean Land Rover. We had booked a private car and so excited that we did. We traveled to the camel race track and Hamdy educated us on the specifics of Camel racing and how it has changed over the years. When we arrived at the preserve there was a photographer to take pictures throughout our travels. The first thing we did was see a falconry show with Sarah - it was very informative. Then the camels arrived and my husband and I were in for our first camel ride and what a treat it was! After a ride on the camels we were escorted to our private tent followed by 6 course Bedouin meal. There is more food than you can eat and as they say in Dubai do as the Emarati's do so we had to eat some camel and boy was it tender and delicious. Unfortunately we had found out we were on the Arabic Holiday and there were no belly dancers, however we were pleasantly surprised with a one of a kind star gazing show. How incredibly awesome it was to see Saturn!! Hamdy's going away gift was a chocolate camel made out of camel milk DELICIOUS!! A fantastic experience with a one of kind tour guide thank you again Hamdy!
Fantastic experience ... guide very knowledgeable about Dubai, making the experience even more interesting. Loved all of it - the conservation park, falconry display, camel riding and ME dancing. The food at the camp was 5 star - absolutely gorgeous! Highly recommend this experience.
Lots of fun and the dinner was excellent.
The best thing we did at Dubai. It just perfect this trip to the desert.
very friendly driver/guide..excellent experience...would do it again
The tour guide is excellent . Service is five stars.
This tour was perfect and certainly a high light of our week in Dubai. Our guide was super and he was exceptionally accommodating and shared a large variety of information about the desert, Dubai and the history. I wasn't interested in being a large vehicle and the Mercedes G SUV was perfect but even better still was the amazing dinner that we were served in a private area out in the desert. Thanks Ibrahim, really appreciated your sense of humour.
Our guide Mohammed was simply the nicest guy and the whole afternoon evening was wonderful!!
Not cheap but worth every penny!!
If not the friendly tour guides Miriam and Voldemar I would rate this tour with no more than one star. The falcon show was too short and quite primitive, the ride in the desert was so-so, the dinner was frustrating, nothing to write home about and definitely not the type of food you expect when paying almost 500 per person for the tour.
The tour guides on the other hand were very pleasant and friendly.
If all of the desert tours are like that then I recommend to choose the one for a fraction of this price.
Romance the night away with a torch-lit Al A Carte dinner in the desert! After traveling through Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve by luxury Range Rover, watch the sun set over the dunes whilst witnessing the flight of a falcon and then arrive at a beautiful exclusive dining site by car or by camel within the grounds of the Royal Retreat. Watch a falconry display as the sun sets over the dunes, and then retire to a private sanctuary tucked away in the desert for your private 6-course dinner. It’s the perfect evening for any special occasion, be that an end-of-vacation meal, anniversary or even a romantic proposal!
