Experience the cultural heritage and natural environment of Dubai
Like every desert dream you’ve ever had but like nothing you’ve ever experienced, the Heritage Desert Safari is where culture and adventure collide. With traditional headscarf in place, you’ll climb aboard your 1950s open topped land rover, for a wildlife drive through the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve.
The dunes will quickly start to feel like home as you arrive at your traditional, torch-lit Bedouin camp, experience a sunset falcon show and be entertained as only the Emirati know how - with henna, camel rides, shisha, drumming and a traditional dinner.
Replete and satisfied, as the desert draws to darkness, your guide will be ready to return you safely to your hotel.
Prices start from £129

As the saying goes, when in Rome, do as the Romans do! Alcohol is generally not permitted in the Arabic culture, and while the Rulers of the country have shown great flexibility in allowing service in hotels, we are committed to stay true to local traditions and showcase the authenticity, warmth and hospitality of this region. For these reasons alcohol is not served on the heritage desert tours.
