Vintage Land Rover: Shared
Desert experience including a shared 1950s Land Rover safari
From US$ 163.50
Overview
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.

Absolutely unreal experience. Driven around the dunes in an open top Land Rover before being taken back to the camp in the middle of the desert. Falconry demonstration was great, followed by sunset over the desert, traditional dinner then camel rides. As it was Ramadan,...More

Paolo is the man and this experience is not to be missed

There's a reason the celebrities choose Platinum Heritage for their tours. Everything was perfectly planned out; it operated like a Patek Philippe. It might be a little pricier than other versions, but it's because they: 1. Provide a much more premium, authentic experience 2. Actually...More
