I took my 3 years old on this tour and we had the most beautiful experience. We were picked up from a hotel close to where we live and driven out to the desert. On arrival we received branded, stainless steel water bottles and headscarves. Love, love love the bottles. So much better than plastic and reusable! We followed the camel caravan in a vehicle and arrived at a falcon. My son especially loved the saluki dog experience. Dinner was simple but delicious! And the astronomy at the end was the cherry on the top! Interactive and never before have I seen the sky light up with stars. Fantastic experience even if you live in Dubai and want a nice evening out in the desert. Great for families looking for an interactive, hands on experience.

We went on this evening desert safari back in January, when we were visiting a friend in Dubai, and we loved it. The crew are very kind, educated and well informed. The camp and everything else were spotless clean and the food was great. The camels were in very good condition and well taken care of. I particularly recommend the evening show as the “star show”, listening to Eddie (our guide), and seeing the desert sky with his telescope was quite interesting.

This experience was great from beginning to end. We had a seamless pick up & drop off from the hotel. It is an educational experience but done in such a way that you are sure to have fun whether you are 5 or 60 years old. It did not feel touristy at all. The folks who work there are very proud of their Emirati culture and do a great job in teaching you about it (dance, games, henna, nomadic way of life, why they wear black or white clothes, falconry, saluki, astronomy, medicines, traditions). The Emirati food was delicious (it is not the same as Middle Eastern food from Egypt for example). The bathrooms were adequate for being in the dessert. You get to take a long camel ride and if you don’t want to or can’t get on the camel they will drive you to the Bedouin camp. The only negative was that I would have liked some more time to take pictures with the camels. I strongly recommend this tour and would do it once more if ever in Dubai again.

By far the most authentic and revealing activity of this kind! It is from the beginning until the end, late in the night, only about Bedouin life and traditions, in a very honest and generous manner, far away from the purely commercial desert safaris offered everywhere. Ibrahim, Ali, Anisa, Yusuf, along with the entire team, they do an amazing job being so welcoming and sharing so many interesting insights about Bedouin culture. I love it and I strongly recommend it.

Thank you to our amazing guide Ibrahim and local guide Ali- they were so attentive to us and the information and experience was excellent!!
