The best way to learn about the Arabian night sky is by venturing into the desert on a private night safari, followed by an immersive astronomy session. Explore the desert after dark in your private 1950s Land Rover, followed by a nocturnal eco-walk. All while your experienced Conservation Guide tells you more about the desert nightlife.
After your nature safari you will join other guests and relax in a peaceful camp on Royal Desert Grounds, smoke flavourful shisha and savour a delicious three-course dinner featuring Emirati dishes. The evening ends perfectly when a professional astronomer takes everyone on a journey through the galaxies and tells tales about the starry sky and how the Bedouin used it to find their way.
Should you wish to extend the night, you can opt for a traditional overnight experience in authentic stone-dwelling rooms, followed by a lavish breakfast the following morning. You can also upgrade your experience with a sunrise hot air balloon ride after your overnight stay, before returning to the Heritage camp for breakfast.

This tour is fabulous! From A to Z everything was handled perfectly. The desert at night is an enchanting experience and one that shouldn’t be missed when you’re visiting Dubai. Our guide, Eddie, had great attention to detail and was fully engaged throughout the entire tour. He did an excellent job of explaining the history of the land where we were, pointing out where to look for wildlife, and teaching us about the constellations and planets visible in the night sky. The food was really great as well! We never felt rushed throughout the tour and were able to truly soak up the atmosphere - don’t miss out on this experience!!
So this was a meditation..perfectly organized experience. Starting with a comfy hotel pick-up from Downtown Dubai, with as many stops as wanted to see the sunset, some animals on the way itself when approaching, followed by adventurous night desert ride and walk while observing the nightlife (incl. scorpions glowing under the ultraviolet light!!), then getting to a camp to enjoy super-dinner, fireshow & stargazing with a telescope. Never saw so many colours in a desert sky. Got so much of valuable info about the nature, nightlife and the nightsky..as a universe-lover totally appreciated. Drop-off with a night city ride back perfectly wrapped-up the eve. Eddie, thanks so much to you & the team!
