Have you ever visited the largest unfenced nature reserve in the UAE? Your ride will start from your hotel in Dubai. Once you arrive at Al Marmoom Conservation Reserve, you will board a vintage G-Class Mercedes from the 1980s to enjoy the rest of your safari experience.
After a leisurely 30 to 40-minute ride, it's time to stop for awe-inspiring photos at sunset. You will enjoy the chance to learn more about the significance of desert plants, animals, and the traditional Bedouin way of life.
Admire the ghaf, the national tree of the UAE, and medicinal herbs and plants. Witness wild animals like the Arabian oryx, gazelle, deer, falcon, and more. A camel ride across the desert terrain will be offered so you can continue admiring the fantastic desert scenery.
Arriving at the Bedouin Village, experience traditional Emirati hospitality as you're being welcomed with Arabic coffee and sweets. Then your tour guide will show you the village where the soft lighting and magical beauty of the oasis is guaranteed to leave you speechless.
Walking around the village, you can witness local ladies preparing sweet luqaimat dumplings and flatbread using traditional culinary methods. You can listen to stories about traditional Bedouin lifestyle and culture.
A typical Emirati three-course dinner begins with an appetiser followed by a main course, and dessert. These will be served to you in your tent, followed by a series of performances by local entertainers. You can also take part in henna painting and catch a beautiful photo with a falcon.
When the lights go out, unwind and enjoy the peaceful environment the magical desert provides. Afterwards, your guide will drive you back to your hotel in Dubai.
