2 travellers
Enjoy an exciting night safari and astronomy with dinner in the Dubai desert on this 5-hour private tour! As evening falls, travel from Dubai and head for Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve . Here, your private guide greets you in a private iconic 1950s Land Rover for your safari. With your guide at the wheel, drive into the desert to spot nocturnal animals as they emerge from their hideouts to frolic and forage under cover of darkness. Afterward, return to the camp for dinner and to relax under a canopy of stars listening to your expert astronomy guide.
  • Experience Dubai’s desert and wildlife in style on a private night tour
  • Private retro Land Rover safari to look for oryx, gazelle, and more
  • Enjoy dinner and private guided astronomy session at a royal desert camp
  • Hassle-free: transport and extras, such as night-vision binoculars, included
What to Expect
A private air-conditioned minivan picks you up from your central Dubai hotel. From there, venture into the desert. En route, learn about the desert ecosystem and the ongoing efforts to protect its flora and fauna. Then, arrive at a desert camp owned by Dubai’s royal family; it's located inside the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, a national park. Here, climb into a private vintage 1950s Land Rover with a trained desert driver and take a wildlife safari in the twilit dunes. Look for Arabian oryx, gazelles, hares, lizards, and other species, and use the headlight beams and night-vision binoculars to detect any movement. Afterward, enjoy a 2-course dinner at the torchlit camp and an optional shisha (Arabic water pipe). Then, with an astronomer-guide, scan the starry skies to see and learn about constellations. Your tour finishes with a hotel drop-off.
