Vintage Land Rover: Shared
Desert experience including a shared 1950s Land Rover safari
From US$163.50
The desert around Dubai demands more than a passing look—it’s a place of beauty that showcases the UAE’s Bedouin heritage. This expedition does it justice with several touches not offered on standard tours, including a wildlife safari by vintage Land Rover, falconry display, bread- and coffee-making demos, and a 4-course, desert-camp dinner within a royalty-owned retreat.
What to Expect
After central Dubai hotel pickup, travel into the desert before settling into a shared, open-top vintage Land Rover—a classic desert workhorse used extensively in the 1950s. 
Then, with a skilled driver, trundle through the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, hearing about Dubai’s history and wildlife, and watching for animals such as gazelle and oryx.

Stop for a sunset falconry display, and then head to a Bedouin-style desert camp within a private royal retreat. Here, enjoy an Arabic coffee and various Emirati activities like bread-making demonstrations, henna tattoos, and camel riding before sitting at a shared Bedouin-style table for a 4-course local dinner.

After a folk-dancing and music show—and optional shisha (Arabic water pipe)—enjoy a minivan transfer to your hotel, where your trip concludes.
