The best way to learn about the Arabian night sky is by venturing into the magical desert to enjoy a private night safari, followed by an immersive astronomy session. Explore the desert after dark in a 1950s Land Rover, before embarking on a nocturnal eco-walk. Admire your surroundings as your conservation guide tells you more about the desert nightlife.

Relax in a traditional open-air Bedouin camp and savour a delicious three-course dinner featuring Emirati dishes. The evening ends perfectly when a professional astronomer takes you on a journey through the galaxies and tells tales about the starry sky and how the Bedouin used it to find their way. After an unforgettable evening spent around the bonfire in a traditional majlis, retreat to your private room. The Arabic stone dwelling rooms are inspired by how the Bedouin designed and built their accommodation. Enjoy a restful sleep with no city sounds or lights to interrupt. Your room is fully equipped with a bed and comfortable bedding.

A gourmet breakfast awaits you in the morning and will compete your unforgettable time in the desert. You'll return to Dubai with your appetite for adventure fully satisfied!

Know before you go

Hotel pick-up is available from Dubai, Sharjah and Ajman in a private air-conditioned vehicle.

We recommend (especially during summer) that you wear a hat, sunglasses, sun cream and comfortable clothes to keep you cool. During winter (December- February) we recommend that you bring something warm to layer on as the temperature drops considerably after sunset.

Dinner includes a salad, main course and dessert. We also provide vegetarian and vegan meal options. Please inform us when booking so we can make sure your preferences are accommodated.

Shared bathroom facilities are available in the desert and at the camp.

Our camps are solar-powered, so you will be provided with a torch as lights will be switched off at night.

Your desert safari is conducted by highly-trained conservation guides with extensive knowledge of ecotourism, cultural heritage, history and the natural environment of Dubai.

A portion of your desert safari fee is contributed towards local conservation efforts in Dubai.
