Itinerary

Explore the depths of the Arabian deserts and get a first hand experience of what life is like on the other side of the city-life in this experiential tour. Prepare yourself for a night of fun, frolic and feasting as you set out in the early afternoon to reach the start of the Dubai desert and board your classic 1950s Land Rover. This car is the perfect ride, apart from the regular camels, to scale the dunes of the desert and power through the sand. Cross the desert with the setting sun on your backs and admire the changing hues of the sand as it turns from golden to orange and then a deep red. Your drive to the Arabic-style camp will first take you through the pristine Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve which was set-up to protect and cater to the dwindling population of the desert’s exotic beasts and birds. Learn about some of the endangered species in the reserve and if you are lucky, you might even spot a few, basking in their natural habitat. On reaching the camp site, you will be welcomed into a world straight out of the Arabian Nights with dimly lit dining areas, thatched huts, extravagant carpets and low chairs and tables to have your meal in comfort. After settling into your seats and table, you will be treated first with a stunning falconry display – where one of the locals will showcase the skills of his falcon, trained to swerve, dive, fly and dance with the wind. The falcons have been part of the Arabic culture for centuries, commonly used in the ancient times for hunting and sending messages, and the art still persists in parts of the community- which is a sight to behold. Make sure to take up on the opportunity of the setting sun and onset of the evening to capture some memorable photographs in the desert and with the local people. After the falconry display, a traditional bread and coffee making demonstration will be set up where you will get the chance to taste one of the world’s best coffees and learn the secret behind its aroma and taste. Step into the night with some engrossing cultural performances by the talented locals who will sing and dance to the beat and tunes of ancient Arabia. Their intricately designed costumes and enthralling moves will add the perfect zest to your evening before you commence with your dinner. After the dance and music performances, settle down into your comfy cushions and chairs to indulge in an authentic feast with a wide range of Emirati dishes and fresh juices. Make sure to try out as many of the items as possible to get the best flavors and aromas.
