No animal knows the desert like an Arabian Camel. Locally known as the ships of the desert, camels play a key role in Bedouin culture, and today act as an insight into the history and heritage of this way of life. Join us for a camel ride across the Dubai desert and walk in the footsteps of many generations before you, learning about the critical role that the camel plays in the country’s cultural landscape.

Duration: 4 hours
Language: English

Full description

Camels and the desert go hand in hand. They have been modes of transport, symbols of culture and supporters of life across multiple generations for many centuries. Our Camel Ride experience brings you closer than ever to one of Arabia’s greatest companions.

The Camel Ride experience takes place in the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, and includes transfers to and from your hotel or residence. Alongside a camel ride across the desert, you’ll stop for breakfast at our designated lakeside breakfast stop, see the sun take its place in the centre of the sky throughout your morning, and spot a world of wildlife in their natural habitat.

Your Camel Ride experience takes place in the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, a natural habitat for the Arabian Camel. At a calm, steady pace, the camel shepherd for your activity will take you through the Reserve’s desert plains, in a throwback to the centuries of desert roaming camels are famous for. Your experience will include two 45–minute camel rides, with the return trek by camel being optional – please advise your preference before joining us for the activity.

The Camel Ride experience is scheduled for mornings, to take place as the sun continues to rise over the Dubai desert. Your itinerary will include a stop to watch the sun take its place over the desert, with breakfast served next to one of the DDCR’s many natural lakes as part of your activity. The stop will provide plenty of opportunities for wildlife spotting – you could be in good company!
