A discovery of Dubai's desert fauna, flora and heritage

Embark on the most awarded desert safari in Dubai. Be a part of history and experience the desert like never before. Your professional Conservation Guide will take you on a nature safari through the Dubai Desert Conservation Drive while telling you all about the desert fauna and flora and how the Bedouin used to survive. Take in a magnificent Arabian sunset while watching a spectacular falconry performance. Ease into the evening with a delicious Emirati dinner and aromatic shisha. Be entertained with traditional performances like Yola and Drumming before heading back to the city.

Customize your tour by choosing how you want to explore the desert for your 60-minute safari. The Vintage Land Rover ensures a throwback to when the first vehicles were introduced to the UAE in the 1950s, feel the wind in your hair and take irreplaceable pictures in these classic cars. Feel like a true Bedouin from the past when choosing to traverse the desert on a camel safari. The so-called “ships of the desert” have been an integral part of the UAE’s heritage. Taking on the desert in a classic Land Rover Defender feels like something from a movie!

If you’re not ready to greet the desert yet, you also have the option to stay overnight with breakfast or stay overnight and enjoy a hot air balloon flight and breakfast the next morning.
