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.

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.

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.

We couldn't have asked for a better tour. The desert reserve is beautiful, more than enough food that was quality, kind tour guides, and programming that was captivating. You won't regret booking this tour. Our guide Abdul was great.
