We booked the private starlight safari experience as a surprise for my wife to celebrate her birthday. What an amazing experience! Picked up on time from our hotel by our driver and tour guide for the day, Shameem. Very clean and safe Toyota Land Cruiser, with plenty of hygiene masks and sanitiser available throughout the tour.
The trip was totally incredible, we were taken to the desert, where our fantastic knowledgeable tour guide Shameem showed us some fascinating places and wildlife, with regular stops to take some amazing pictures.
After the safari tour, we arrived at a private location in the desert, where we embarked on a camel ride to our private dining area. We sat on large cushions by the camp fire and watched the incredible sunset, drinking a glass of fizz for me and my wife and a juice for my daughter.
After sunset, we headed into our private dining area, where Shameem cooked us the most excellent bbq, chicken, lamb, steak, prawns, vegetable kebabs, it was amazing.
I booked a package which included unlimited alcohol beverages, and we were not disappointed, our chef and waiter Shameem did an excellent job keeping our glasses filled, lots of wine, beer, and a celebratory tequila!
After our amazing meal, we were taken safely back to our hotel.
I have to say we found it an incredible experience, amazing pictures and amazing memories forever, made extra special by our fantastic host Shameem. He is a real credit to the company, and is thoroughly recommend this private safari experience

Decided on the sunset tour out to the desert that included a shared car, 4wd over the dunes, photo opportunities, a camel ride then dinner with entertainment. Around $60 or $70 kiwi dollars for each of us. Well worth it.

Old mate Melvin collected me, my wife and daughter from our hotel promptly at 3pm, a quick skip across town in his flash Landcruiser saw us collect 3 lovely ladies out from Japan.

35 mins later, we parked out in the middle.of the desert, taking photos while the rest of the team arrived. 30 mins later its us and another 35 land cruisers - true!

Our man Melvin followed the leader and we started pushing over the dunes, i thought this might be a little light on fun but old mate Melvin and his cohorts gave it some and we were all having a good old time. Our Japanese friends were bouncing all over the show in the boot.... ha ha. Dukes of Hazzard style!!!!

Another stop, great sunset photos, drinks then we were off again. Suddenly got down to 14C, so me tshirt and jandals didnt keep me too warm. Heads up!!!

Over a couple more sand hills and wow, an Arabian camp in the middle of the desert. Wife and daughter were quick to get in a camel ride (200m) then into the grounds for wonderful entertainment, tons of food and beersies and wine should you wish.

We chose the beer n wine option once there, as we needed a couple of drinks after Melvin's antics. Seriously tho, Melvin was a very safe and knowledgeable driver. Well.done Arabian Safaris, a slick operation that was a ton of fun.

We booked this through our hotel for six of us. We were picked up in a Land-cruiser and taken to the location on the other side of Dubai (approximately an hour away). As we approached we joined c30+ other 4x4 vehicles and then the fun started. The driver lowered the pressure in the tyres and we went "off piste" and the experience was amazing. We then stopped to watch the sun set and finally stopped at a location where we were able to experience a short camel ride, sand surfing before walking into an impressive arena. The buffet was excellent and the entertainment was fantastic. All in All it was a terrific afternoon/evening, so well organised and great value for money.
I would absolutely recommend this as a "must do" if you are visiting Dubai.
Thank you for making a last day in Dubai so a great day

From the pick up at the door to the friendly and informative commentary in the car this excursion was a standout. Limited to 6 per vehicle, we joined a number of other cars in a whooping safari (skilled driving by Sele) in the sanddunes spotting oryx and gazelles until a spectacular sunset over the sandunes.
Dinner at a deaert oasis, up-close with a racing falcon, camel rides, sand boarding, fire dancing, henna painting, sashish, and arabic tea and coffee.
A great way to taste the desert in Dubai!

This has been one of the best experiences of my life so far. i cannot explain in words how beautiful this part of the world is and Aarabian adventures have ensured every need is met. - Luxury is an understatement. the views are breathtakingly beautiful, the staff are so friendly and our guide Ismail went beyond expectations to ensure we had the best stay possible.
From the moment we met Ismail at the hotel we felt relaxed and comfortable. they have thought of everything, there's refrigerated water in the car, someone to take your bags and every step gets better and better. Ismail had such good knowledge on Dubai itself and we really enjoyed getting to know him on the drive.
the dune bashing was so much fun, Riding a camel at sunset across the sand dunes was more special than i can possibly say and the campsite itself was one of the most beautiful places i've ever been fortunate enough to stay.
There is a bed, showers, toilets, adorable care packages with everything you need, fresh towels etc. We can honestly say we wanted for nothing, Ismail or another guide was there every time our glass was empty with another fresh drink or refreshment. the food was incredible. There's also only 8 tents on the campsite and so you can pretty much guarantee a private and quiet experience. we were lucky enough to meet another couple. it was only us four for the meal and majority of the evening and it was a real pleasure to meet people from another part of the world.

i could go on forever about this, the stars, food, drink, sand, sunset, sunrise EVERYTHING was worth every penny. Don't be put off by the price because once we left we felt if anything we would have paid more for this experience. Book it now and don't miss out on something that one day may be crowded with people.

Had a great evening. Picked up from our hotel and taken to start point which was approx 45 min journey. Our experience started with 20 minute dune off roading, (tip do not sit in very back of the land cruiser unless your prepared for a bumpy ride). Several stops including refreshments. Activities included sand boarding, soft drink refreshments included . Our driver looked after us very well making sure we had a great time. The food at the end was plentiful and very good with lots of choice for every palette. Entertainment was excellant . A definite must do if you visit Dubai. This activity was included in our City Sightseeing bus tour with the super saver Dubai pass which we bought online.

Our Private Starlight Desert Safari was so amazing I dont even know where to start. We booked online prior to our trip via the website. We were a family of two adults and two children 8 and 12. Our Sarafi Host/Driver, Shan Jaan arrived early to Atlantis to pick us up in the 4x4 Land Cruiser. During our ride to the desert, gave us a detailed run down of the history of Dubai and the many landmarks we passed. Upon arriving at the Desert Reserve, he checked in with the staff, let some air out the tires and we were on our way. The Dune Bashing was a simply amazing experience and our host knew exactly was he was doing. We were very thrilled but never felt unsafe. After the Dune Bashing, our driver took us to a reserve area and showed us some of the animals and plant life that reside there. Next we headed to an area where a gentleman with two camels was waiting for us to arrive. We enjoyed riding the camels to our private Starlight Camp sight. He offered to take as many pictures as we liked of the camels and amazing sunset. As we arrived to the camp we were greeted by a waiter who had Champagne and a wide variety of other drinks waiting for us. The tent setup with a table for 4 was surrounded by large tiki torch style fires which was awesome. Over to the side a large campfire was waiting for us along with two large sitting pillows to rest on. Our meal was prepared over to the side on a gas grill from scratch by our Host. This was simply awesome and surpassed every expectation We were served a wide variety of sides as well as grilled Lamb Chops, Chicken and Giant Prawns.

Overall the Private Starlight Dinner Safari by Arabain Adventures was the highlight of our Christmas vacation to Dubai. The impeccable service offered by our Host and Waiter were nothing short of amazing. They made sure our every need was taken care of and definitely kept our glasses full of champagne! When we return to Dubai we will definitely do the private safari again. I doubt our experience would have been so unique if we were with a group of other people. The private aspect really set this apart and it was amazing.

Awesome, awesome job Arabian Adventures and Shan Jaan. His excellent customer service and awesome attitude are very beneficial to Arabian Adventures. We would request him again next time!!! Thank you for making our Christmas vacation extra special!!!

We were greeted by two Toyota land cruisers at our hotel in dubai. We drove about 45 minutes to the spot at which we drove all around the sand dunes at a high rate of speed. Our driver, Bokhari, was a super fun, nice, confident person to be around. We drove into the desert in the two back to back land cruisers, aggressively swerving around and over the dunes. It was very fun. About 15 minutes later, we stopped to take pictures of the desert and a few family photos. Our driver, Bokhari, took amazing photos which we will have forever! He was super funny and made us laugh many times throughout the afternoon. Afterwards, we started driving towards the place in which we meet the camels. We arrived in about 10 minutes. We booked a private trip so it was only my family and another family that we invited. We were greeted by about 5 or so camels. We hopped on the camels and rode to our picnic/ dinner spot for the night. Whilst we were riding our camels, the sunset was a great scene in the background. We arrived at the dinner spot which had a giant towel with bean-bag type pillows to sit on, a table which was already set, plenty of torches all around, music with a bar, a chief cooking at a grill, and cold towels to dry our faces off with. We started eating not so long after. We were offered soft drinks as well as acholic beverages (wine, cocktail, etc.) we were served many interesting and tasty foods with my personal favorite from the night, the lamb. After we wrapped up we headed home in the land cruisers. Our driver was super fun and interesting to talk to throughout the journey. Overall 11/10! We had such a great time and I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in doing something like this!
