Heritage Desert Safari Dubai

Experience the most awarded Desert Safari in Dubai. Take a step back in time and experience Dubai as it was 50 years ago. Your professional guide will escort you on a fascinating Dubai desert safari in a museum quality, vintage 1950’s Land Rover. Recognised by the prestigious World Travel Awards as The Middle East’s Leading Desert Safari and the Number 1 Desert Safari in Dubai on TripAdvisor.

These Series 1 Land Rovers were extensively used in the 1950’s and since then have become part of the UAE history. No other vehicle offers a more authentic desert safari experience to spot exotic local wildlife within the pristine Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve.

Watch the sun drop under the horizon as you watch a falcon soar around you. Your Bedouin camp, lit with the gentle flames of traditional lamps is nestled inside a private Royal desert retreat. We will demonstrate cultural activities such as henna tattoos, music, dance and bread and Arabic coffee making before enjoying a scrumptious dinner under the stars. History comes to life in this once in a lifetime desert safari in Dubai.

The TripAdvisor Travellers Choice Awards recognises this Heritage 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!

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.

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!
