Full description
Your adventure begins by retracing the footsteps of Bedouin and their beloved camels on a traditional 'camel caravan' through the desert. Unmount your camel to set up traditional majlis (Arabic for ‘place of sitting’) and watch an extraordinary falcon show with a Bedouin, his falcons, and his Saluki dog.

Your expert guide will then accompany you on a walking tour of the Bedouin village, introducing you to important traditions and the daily rituals of their culture. The Bedouin village is built out of raw materials like goats hair and is located next to a beautiful desert oasis in Al Marmoom Desert Conservation Reserve.

Watch live cooking demonstrations at the food stations and see how Arabic coffee is prepared over a fire in the desert. If you’re keen for a truly authentic encounter with Bedouin cuisine, you can eat breakfast with Bedouin people the traditional way, sharing a plate and eating with your hands. Afterward, watch and take part in a traditional Bedouin performance.

For the evening experience, listen to stories shared by Bedouin and even learn a traditional performance in a close encounter with these legends of Arabia. End the evening with an Astronomy session.
