Camel Desert Safari

A Camel Desert Safari is the most authentic way to explore the Dubai desert by travelling on a traditional camel convoy. Camels are known as the ship of the desert because of the ease at which they elegantly move across the desert sands. Your 45-minute journey through the desert traces the footsteps of Bedouin travellers and leads you to a traditional Bedouin camp lit by gentle flames, nestled in a private Royal desert retreat.

Learn about another animal that was important to the region, the falcon. Watch a sunset falcon show in the dunes while sipping on sparkling date juice.

Discover Dubai as it was over 50 years ago and enjoy an evening experiencing many cultural activities such as henna, sheesha and bread making. Learn how to prepare a local recipe handed down from generation to generation, before enjoying a scrumptious traditional 4 course dinner under the Arabian desert star-lit sky. Be entertained with traditional Emirati dances and join in on a cultural drumming session.

Enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime experience and spend a night revelling in the magic of the rich cultural heritage that Dubai has to offer.

The TripAdvisor Travellers Choice Awards recognises this Camel Desert Safari as part of the Top 10 Travel Experiences across the Middle East.

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!

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!

Melanie – Dubai

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.
