Depart your central Dubai hotel by private, air-conditioned minivan and venture into the desert.

On route, learn about the desert ecosystem and the ongoing efforts to protect its flora and fauna. After about an hour, arrive at a desert camp owned by Dubai’s royal family and located inside Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, a national park.

Here, climb into a private vintage 1950s Land Rover with a trained desert driver, and take a wildlife safari in the twilit dunes. Look for Arabian oryx, gazelles, hares, lizards, and other species, and use the headlight beams and night-vision binoculars to detect any movement.

Afterward, enjoy a 2-course dinner at the torchlit camp and an optional shisha (Arabic water pipe). Then, with an astronomer guide, scan the starry skies to see and learn about the constellations.

Your tour finishes with a hotel drop-off.
