Private Night Safari & Astronomy

After the sun has dropped and the temperature cools, see the nocturnal animals come to life. Explore the desert at night with your professional Conservation Guide on a private tour. Use UV arachnid lights to see into the desertscape.

Even daytime animals may move away from their hideouts to drink, forage and frolic. Enjoy the dark, fresh and quiet desert air as a contrast to the bright lights, heat and noise of the city. After your nature drive, relax at an opened aired camp and enjoy the cooler desert air and watch the blanket of stars above you.

Enjoy a scrumptious three-course dinner, drinks and a shisha after joining us on a cosmic journey as your private Astronomer recalls the early history of Astronomy and the impressive legacy of Astronomy from Arabia. Enjoy spectacular telescope views of mesmerising night sky objects including the mighty planet Jupiter and its four Galilean Moons, distant galaxies and star-forming nebula.

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.

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!
