HERITAGE DESERT SAFARI
Dubai's most awarded desert safari
Take a step back in time and experience Dubai as it was in the 1950s on an adventure in the Dubai desert with a professional Conservation Guide.
Unlike any other Dubai Desert Safari, we will take you on a fascinating nature safari in 1950s vintage Land Rovers. As the first motorised vehicles used in the Dubai desert, these Series 1 and 2 Land Rovers have become symbolic of Dubai’s heritage and venturing to unexplored territories.
Spot native wildlife like Arabian oryx in the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve and stop at a Ghaf tree forest in the dunes for the most spectacular photo opportunities in the desert. Learn about the unique desert ecosystem and discover how the Bedouin survived in the desert in harmony with the desert animals and plant life.
Witness a spectacular falcon show led by a professional Falconer and watch these magnificent birds in full flight. Learn about ancient training techniques and how the Bedouin used falcons for hunting. Watch the Arabian sun setting as the backdrop over the sand dunes.
Afterwards, arrive at an authentic Bedouin camp, gently lit with traditional lamps and nestled inside an exclusive desert retreat. Discover the rich culture and traditions of Dubai’s heritage with live demonstrations of Arabic coffee and bread making, henna painting, camel rides, and traditional performances. Feast on a 4-course dinner under the stars, afterwards relax in our Arabic Majilis area and try some shisha if you desire.
This safari is now customisable by allowing you to choose how you want to experience your 60-minute nature safari. When booking your Heritage Safari, ensure to choose the vintage Land Rover option.
