Enjoy a Camel Safari with Dinner and Emirati Activities from Dubai

A Camel Desert Safari is the most authentic way to explore the Dubai desert by travelling on a traditional camel convoy. Camels are known as the ship of the desert because of the ease at which they elegantly move across the desert sands. Your 45-minute journey through the desert traces the footsteps of Bedouin travellers and leads you to a traditional Bedouin camp lit by gentle flames, nestled in a private Royal desert retreat.


Learn about another animal that was important to the region, the falcon. Watch a sunset falcon show in the dunes while sipping on sparkling date juice.


Discover Dubai as it was over 50 years ago and enjoy an evening experiencing many cultural activities such as henna, sheesha and bread making. Learn how to prepare a local recipe handed down from generation to generation, before enjoying a scrumptious traditional 4 course dinner under the Arabian desert star-lit sky. Be entertained with traditional Emirati dances and join in on a cultural drumming session.


Enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime experience and spend a night revelling in the magic of the rich cultural heritage that Dubai has to offer.
