A spectacular stargazing journey in the Dubai desert

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 a 1950s Land Rover, followed by a nocturnal eco-walk. All while your experienced Conservation Guide tells you more about the desert nightlife.

Relax in a traditional open-air Bedouin camp, smoke flavourful shisha and savour a delicious three-course dinner featuring Emirati dishes. The evening ends perfectly when a professional astronomer takes you 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 an overnight experience with a lavish breakfast or even an overnight adventure with a hot air balloon ride in the morning, followed by a gourmet breakfast.
