Full description
Discover nocturnal desert wildlife on a drive through the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, equipped with a spot light and night vision binoculars. You will stop to look for scorpions with an ultraviolet light, before taking part in some relaxing stargazing.

You will enjoy an informative and relaxing night-time nature drive through the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, learning more about the animal species sighted. Ultraviolet lights cause the fascinating exoskeletons of a scorpion to glow in the dark, making these unique creatures stand out for you to admire.

You can enjoy stargazing through a powerful Celestron Nexstar 127 telescope, and will later end your night safari with a beverage (tea or coffee), and light bites.

Our guide was very knowledgeable which made the drive to the conservation site interesting. There was not a large number of animals to see as the temperature was around 17 degrees and we understood that more would have been visible if it had been later in the season.
