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.

Dubai Heritage Land Rover Desert Safari with Traditional Dinner & Entertainment

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 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.

This was my very first desert safari experience and Platinum Heritage really set the bar high. Our guide Ben is absolutely amazing. He was very enthusiastic and very knowledgeable, he filled in all the information we needed to know during the tour and even shared random trivia and fun facts along the way. What I appreciated the most in this trip is their commitment in conserving the native wildlife, the natural habitat and its flora and fauna. And of course the food cannot be missed, they welcomed us with fresh oysters, bread, and drinks. We were served with authentic four-course Arabic dinner while giving an authentic Bedouin experience. Above all, it was indeed a great experience! The team are all very professional and helpful. I would highly suggest Platinum Heritage for everyone visiting Dubai. It's an amazing experience, you wouldn't want to miss! Big thanks to Neil and the Team for this unique and memorable experience! :)

The unique experience of exploring the desert with a vintage land rover. All the staff of Platinum Heritage are very knowledgeable and friendly which also added to a memorable experience. The dinner is superb and the experience at the camp helps you get a glimpse of how it's like during the old times at the desert. It's really an amazing experience.

This was a fantastic experience. We did the late afternoon desert safari and dinner. Our guide James was absolutely amazing. He was so much fun, very knowledgeable and great with our two boys. The team even did a cake for my son's birthday. Cannot recommend this experience, or James highly enough.

The evening desert safari in a vintage Land Rover was not just the highlight of our holiday but one of the best things we’ve ever done. Our tour guide was Jacob and he was friendly and knowledgeable and made every aspect of the trip run smoothly. What we loved about this particular company and the trip itself was the commitment to preserving the desert environment and wildlife, while giving an authentic experience of Bedouin life. The desert landscape at sunset was breathtaking and the experience in the camp, with the opportunity for henna painting, a camel ride, traditionally cooked food and a very special star gazing session was so memorable. Probably worth mentioning we had a vegan in our party and they were able to cater for that. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Dubai.

This was a wonderful experience! We did a desert drive at night, looked for animals by foot, then had an amazing dinner at an oasis out of a movie (where we also got to handle an owl), and ended with a very informative astronomy session under the stars. We saw Saturn and Jupiter very clearly through a high tech telescope. Our children are 6 and 7 and had a great time also. Our guide Jacob was fantastic - well informed and attentive to everyone’s needs. The other staff were also incredibly hospitable and kind. Although we did this in August when it was hot, the weather was not unbearable. We take with us great memories of this excursion - thank you! PS: bring a flashlight if you own one.
