Full description
Discover the magic and mystery of the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve at dusk on a half-day evening safari to watch the sun go down outside the city lights of Dubai. Since only a few tour operators have access to this serene desert reserve, you'll be able to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and admire the region's vibrant wildlife in peace.

Following a pick-up from your hotel in the city center (between 2:30 PM and 4:30 PM), drive to a traditional Bedouin-style camp, crossing the sand dunes as the sun sets. Stop to take photos of the sunset colors from the top of a dune. Continue to the camp for a traditional welcome and typical desert activities. Enjoy a magnificent falcon display.

See the desert from the back of a camel, try mini sand-boarding (weather permitting) and get an ornate henna painting on your hands. Then, enjoy an Arabic style buffet dinner of grilled meats, meze, desserts and unlimited select drinks. Relax with a shisha pipe (available for purchase) as you watch a belly-dance show under a canopy of stars. During Ramadan (expected 6th May – 2nd June 2019) experience the tradition of Iftar (breaking the fast) with traditional dates and juice at sunset in the dunes 
and hear traditional stories around the campfire at the campsite.

You will return to your hotel between 9:30 PM and 10:00 PM (depending on time of year, traffic and your hotel location).
