Overview
Dubai serves up a host of outdoor desert activities, but enjoying them can involve several trips into the sands. This tour puts a full line-up on a plate, with a night in an Arabic desert tent in between. Take a vintage Land Rover wildlife safari, enjoy dinner, falconry shows, and more at a Bedouin-style camp, and finish with a sunrise hot air balloon ride and desert breakfast the next day.

  • Overnight desert experience with full round of activities from Dubai
  • Enjoy a wildlife drive by retro Land Rover and sunrise hot air balloon ride

What to Expect
Day 1: Dubai – Wildlife Drive – Desert Camp (D) Depart your Dubai hotel and journey to Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve by open-top vintage Land Rover. On arrival, take a wildlife safari: watching for gazelle and oryx as you cross the sands to a Bedouin-style camp within a private royal retreat. On arrival, enjoy an Arabic coffee and wide range of activities: falconry displays, henna art, folkloric dance shows, camel riding, and more. Then, savor a 4-course dinner of Emirati dishes at a shared table before relaxing by the campfire under the stars and sleeping in an Arabic tent complete with a comfortable mattress, pillows, and blanket. Day 2: Desert Camp - Hot Air Balloon - Dubai (B) Rise early, transfer to the nearby balloon site, and after a safety briefing, climb inside the basket with a pilot at the controls. Then, float high over the dunes and sands as the sun rises over the Hajar Mountains. Watch a trained falcon fly from the balloon and after touching down, enjoy a delicious gourmet breakfast at camp. You can purchase a video of your flight if you wish (own expense). Your experience then ends with a drop-off at your Dubai hotel.
