Full description

The Evening Desert Safari is a signature Arabian Adventures experience. Set in the heart of the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, you will always remember the night you spent watching the sunset over the desert, spotting Arabian Oryx and Gazelle roaming in their natural habitat, and feeling the rush of adrenaline that comes with a 4x4 dune drive in a branded Land Cruiser.

Away from the record-breaking skyscrapers and beautiful beaches of the city, there’s a desert world from which the Dubai we know today was born. Home to the origins of Bedouin culture, a world of indigenous wildlife, and a range of thrilling activities that can only be experienced on the dunes, your time on the Dubai desert will leave you feeling like you’ve discovered a brand-new world.

Every activity on your Evening Desert Safari creates a memorable night in the heart of the desert. The journey begins with a pickup from your hotel or residence. Our team will drive you to the DDCR, where your Evening Desert Safari takes place. From here, your evening of activities begins, with a range of thrilling and enriching excursions included before a BBQ dinner in a traditional Bedouin setting and transfer back to your location.

Throughout your Evening Desert Safari, there will be multiple opportunities to spot the indigenous wildlife that call the DDCR home. As you will discover on your safari, the DDCR is a protected conservation space in which local flora and fauna are given a space to flourish. Get your cameras ready, as there will be plenty to spot while you’re with us.

The Evening Desert Safari is for adventure seekers looking for a truly unique experience to add to their Dubai itinerary. Whether you’re a resident or a visitor, there’s nothing that compares to a night on the desert dunes. We look forward to welcoming you to our home for an evening you’ll always remember.
