Start the morning by retracing the footsteps of Bedouin and their beloved camels on a traditional camel caravan through the desert. Unmount your camel to set up traditional majlis (Arabic for ‘place of sitting’) and enjoy an intimate falcon show with the Arabic Saluki dog . Ask a local Emirati everything about the importance of falconry and witness the falcon flying.

Arrive at a Bedouin village where your hosts will greet you with Arabic dates and coffee. The Bedouin village is built out of raw materials like goats hair and is based next to a beautiful desert oasis in Al Marmoom Desert Conservation Reserve. Go on a walking tour through the village and learn about the significant traditions and ways of life in Bedouin culture.

Watch live cooking demonstrations at the food stations and see how Arabic coffee is prepared over a fire in the desert. Share breakfast with Bedouin the traditional way, with a shared plate and eat with your hands if you are keen for an authentic encounter with Bedouin cuisine. Afterwards, watch and take part in a traditional performance.

Living in Dubai for almost 10 years and just now did the tour with Platinum Heritage, I’ve been missing out! The tour was perfect from the beginning till the end. Next time I have visitors, for sure I book again!

Our safari experience was beyond our wildest dreams! We truly enjoyed learning about the desert, wildlife, and cultural traditions! This was an experience you usually only see on TV, but we got to live it! Your trip to Dubai will not be complete without this safari!

We recently had the pleasure of experiencing the Platinum Desert Safari Tour. Wow! From start to finish, my mind was blown at the efficiency of the company and the highest quality of hosting they delivered us. I could not recommend this company enough, everybody we met was so friendly and inviting, the activities were unique and the whole afternoon/evening ran like clockwork. Also, the food we ate during our tour was impeccable and authentic local/national cuisine.
