Full description

A VIP Desert Safari showcases the very best of the Dubai desert, with an added touch of culture and attentiveness. Inclusive of a full desert safari itinerary, the VIP package also includes a BBQ dinner in a Bedouin-inspired camp, complete with your own private dinner table and waiter service.

The VIP Desert Safari begins with a transfer from your hotel or residence, before heading to the dunes for an evening on safari. Your itinerary includes a thrilling dune drive, a peaceful camel trek on board an Arabian Camel, plenty of wildlife spotting opportunities throughout your safari, and a sunset stop to watch the incredible sunset over Dubai – be sure to savour the moment.

From here, our Bedouin-inspired VIP dining space awaits, with a reserved table waiting for you and your guests within the camp. Our VIP dining space is set in a smaller, more secluded corner of the desert, creating a private and more exclusive feeling for your evening meal.

Your meal will be served to your table by our team of attentive waiting staff, adding a touch of personable service and contributing to the VIP experience.
