If you’re lucky, you’ll get to see wild animals while hanging on to the car’s rods and looking out through the open top.  Arriving at the traditional Bedouin village, enjoy an authentic Emirati welcome with gahwa (Arabic coffee) and sweets, followed by a camel caravan ride, where you’ll witness another perspective of the rare beauty of the desert landscape. Later, watch a live Arabic coffee-making session with a local. Sip on traditional Emirati coffee and explore the Bedouin village.

Marvel at the endless sand dunes as the sun falls and snap some unbeatable photos. Before enjoying your own Emirati meal, you can learn more about the Emirati cooking style by seeing a village lady busy making Emirati bread and luqaimat, an Arabic sweet dumpling.  Then, an Emirati 3-course dinner awaits. Start with an appetizer followed by the main course and a dessert. Take this time to enjoy the lively Bedouin-style entertainment.  Get dressed in your own typical Arabian costume and pose with the majestic falcon to take more photos to remember your experience. As night falls, the camp lights will be turned off, allowing you to feel the true essence and magic of the calm desert while enjoying a stargazing session with a telescope. Conclude your trip by hopping back in the vintage Mercedes for one more ride back to your hotel or accommodation in Dubai.

Communication between the tour guide and us was superb. They arrived on time to pick us up to our hotel . Imran Khan, our tour guy, was very courteous and knowledgeable. My kids 9 and 6 really enjoyed the tour. Imnar took us to a mini sand bashing on a vintage Mercedes Benz. drinks were provided while doing the tour. We had the opportunity to see some wild dessert animals. The other experiences with the camel ride and photo with a hawk were nice as well. After the camel ride, and the sand tour, we were served a traditional Emirati breakfast at a camp; food was good and we had a guy playing an Oud while eating.

This turned out to be the highlight of our Dubai trip. From the jeep safari through the desert to the camel ride and dancing. Diner was also really good and plentyful! If you have the opportunity ask for Imran Khan as your driver. He is not only a very skilled drivers and knowledgeable but a very funny and super friendly guy. He definitely made our trip!

The communication was good both with the company and the guide. All aspects of the tour were well organised and very enjoyable. The guide was friendly, witty, helpful and knowledgeable. The food was very good and plentiful. The Bedouin camp was great with everything including the toilets clean. Good value for money and an experience well worth doing.

Great experience in the open jeep! Our driver made our tour an excellent experience . The morningtour was very quiet and therefore a very unique experience. We had the chance to watch oryx, big lizzards and also the falk experience was very nice The breakfast was tasty amd fresh! We can certainly recommenf our driver and tour!!
