About Platinum Heritage
As the only ecotourism Desert Safari company in Dubai, our mission is to protect the cultural heritage and natural environment of Dubai. We have three collections of Desert Safaris which authentically showcase a different time period in Dubai’s history. The Bedouin Collection (pre-1920’s) is the most traditional. Retrace the footsteps of Bedouin tribes and immerse yourself in a first-hand experience of a day in the life of a Bedouin living in the desert. With no frills or fuss, this is the most traditional and hands-on experience of Dubai’s cultural roots. The Heritage Collection (1950’s) is a journey back to the turning point in Dubai’s history to the time when Land Rovers were first introduced to the desert. These Desert Safaris offer an authentic encounter with Dubai’s cultural heritage with the addition of a few modern comforts. The Platinum Collection (modern day) is the most luxurious. Embrace modern day times and experience the magic of the desert with a sophisticated touch.

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 multi-course, desert-camp dinner within a royalty-owned retreat.

Camel Desert Safari with Traditional Dinner & Heritage Activities from Dubai

Exploring Dubai’s desert on a DIY trip won’t give you the full-on Arabian camp experience. This excursion delivers it with a difference: incorporating a longer-than-usual camel ride, a falconry show, and activities like bread- and coffee-making demos, while giving the standard dune bash a miss. Ride a camel to a tented camp, enjoy the activities as you wish, and savor a 4-course dinner and dancing shows before returning to Dubai.

Wonderful night trip in the desert. The tour guide, Atif was amazing, kind and very knowledgeable of the desert. We took and ancient Land Rover and drove into the Dubai Desert Conservation area, a 250 sq meter fenced space owned by the Dubai Royal Family. We went for a walk and searched for skorpions, foxes and all the desert species. After that we had dinner in a luxury tent and cherry on the cake was the astronomy lesson we had with an Australian guy. We used the telescope to see very clearly the moon and all the constellation. Very enchanting moments. We will remember them forever. Thanks again Atif and Platinum Heritage for this unique experience !

We’ve literally just finished this tour and WOW! Incredible from start to finish. Our tour guide was Shane who, as far as we’re concerned, is the creme de la creme. He’s funny, witty, friendly and extremely knowledgable. He was also very proactive during the activities, thinking of everything before we had a chance to process anything. For me, he is what made the tour! The tour itself was A class. We got picked up in a comfortable Range Rover from the hotel and made the short journey into the desert. Along the way, Shane was full of random bits of trivia about the country and things we passed as we went. When we got into the desert, we were fortunate enough to see a few animals followed by the falcon show. Really incredible! The camel ride was amazing and the guys more than willing to take pictures for us. Dinner was excellent, hats off to the chef! The fireworks display great as well. The pictures and video that they took throughout were presented to us at the end and, I suggest you buy! All in all, definitely worth every single penny (especially if you get Shane!).

No stone was left unturned during our adventure. These guys get it right. We were picked up right on time from our hotel and driven out into the desert abyss. Our wonderful tour guide got to know us on our drive and filled us in on what to expect throughout our tour. Once we arrived, we started with the vintage Land Rover excursion through the desert and it was out of this world. The best part is they have a team filming your ride on a drone, so you have the option to have it on video for posterity. They take pictures throughout the day for you as well. The dinner gives you a great opportunity to try authentic dishes, all of which we really enjoyed (even the camel meat). For sleeping in the desert, our overnight accommodations were quite luxurious. The sunrise hot air balloon ride over the desert was a truly unique experience as well. I cannot stress enough how great the service was on our entire tour, from start to finish. A once in a lifetime experience that I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Dubai!
