Leave your Dubai hotel by climate-controlled 4WD vehicle and pass some of the city’s landmarks en route to the desert.

After a roughly 45-minute journey, arrive at Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, a national park dedicated to preserving the desert’s natural beauty and wildlife.

Here, take a leisurely drive around the dunes, watching for wildlife, such as oryx and gazelle, seeing plant species, and learning about the desert’s place in Emirati culture.

Stop for a falconry display (subject to weather) and photos of the sunset, and then relax at a Bedouin-style camp in the sands. Enjoy a selection of activities, such as henna art, sandboarding, and camel riding, and savor a buffet dinner with unlimited beer and wine (except during Ramadan and religious holidays).

Lastly, lounge on carpets as you watch a belly dancing show and observe the night sky before your outing ends with a hotel drop-off.
