Overview

Ride a camel through the desert and enjoy dinner at a Bedouin-inspired camp on this exciting 7-hour experience. Leave Dubai in an air-conditioned minivan and swap your vehicle for a camel for a memorable 45-minute ride to an exclusive desert camp amid the dunes. As the sun sets, enjoy a host of traditional Arabic activities: see a falconry demonstration and cookery displays, get a henna tattoo, and watch traditional dancing under the stars. The finale comes with a scrumptious 4-course banquet of Emirati dishes served Bedouin style.

This was the Adventure of a lifetime! Mohammed was extraordinary as he guided my camel ride through the desert. He pointed out Oscar made sure that the whole experience was amazing! The feast was delicious and the Falcon show was great. I even got to ride in a Vintage Land Rover! Put this on your "List of Must Do's" when in Dubai!

This tour was amazing! So much fun! The camel ride was great. We saw wildlife and wonderful views of the desert dunes. The falcon show was very interesting and informative. The food was very good and there was lots of it! The service was great. Our driver/guide Ben was very helpful, energetic and made the experience even better! We would recommend Ben and Platinum Heritage to anyone looking to have a unique and fun desert experience in Dubai!

Our drive out of the city passed by lovely buildings (including the Burj Khalifa), we passed a camel racetrack, then we arrived and got fitting in traditional head dress. After a ~20 minute camel ride (truly the perfect amount of time to appreciate being on a camel in the desert), we enjoyed a falcon show with some delicious beverages. Then we took a Land Rover to the bedouin camp had a great feast set up for us (with a vegetarian option for me). My favorite part of the camp was a tie between henna and a small stargazing talk. We had one day in Dubai, and at the recommendation of our friends who were just here, we opted to spend our day doing this camel safari experience. In our small group were people who had been in Dubai 17 days, and they said this was far and away their best experience (perhaps second to the hot air balloon tour offered by this same company).

What a great evening. It started at the hotel pickup!!! Raj and Rasheed were THE BEST!!! The ride to the location was not just a ride, but a “get to know you”, history, information and just fun. Our group was small so by the time we arrived, and onto the evening, WE were family!! And that started with Raj and Rasheed! While the rest of our group (4 other adults and 2 children) opted for the Jeep ride in the desert, my husband and I opted for the Camel ride. It was the BEST OPTION!! Along with a guide, we trekked 45 min in the desert on a camel!! It was amazing!!! Mohammed: our guide was THE BEST!! And my camel Lulu was gentle and awesome too!! Once we arrived at our first location, we were treated to a cool berry beverage or some spiced tea AND a falconry lesson. Next, it was into the jeeps for a short drive to our Bedouin-style camp. We were greeted with coffee and a rose water hand wash! The camp offered explanations on coffee and bread making, henna tattoos, a cooking lesson, music and star gazing. The Food was amazing. Lamb (cooked traditionally in the ground) chicken, CAMEL, rice and vegetables. There were also beverages (including camel milk) salad and shared breads and appetizers. There was A LOT of food!!!! The evening ended with dessert and a long ride home… everyone slept! It was an incredible evening. I would HIGHLY recommend it AND I would recommend the camel ride option!!!

Here is the Henna tattoo obtained by my wife -- it stays for 2 weeks or so.

Camels are quite wide. Short folks may be a little sore after the ride.
