Full description

Tour Al Marmoom Conservation Reserve in a Vintage G 230 Mercedes. Explore an ancient Bedouin village while participating in local activities such as coffee making and camel riding. Savor a 3-course dinner while breathing in the one-of-a-kind desert ambiance.

Start your trip with pickup in a modern, air-conditioned vehicle. After a 50-minute journey, arrive at Al Marmoom Desert Conservation Reserve. On arriving, switch from your modern vehicle to a 1980s Vintage G Class Mercedes for a smooth ride over the dunes. 

During the 30 to 40 minute ride, make a photo stop in the middle of the desert. Taking advantage of this chance, learn about Dubai's history. If you’re lucky, you’ll get to see wild animals while hanging on to the car’s rods and looking out through the open top. 

Arriving at the traditional Bedouin village, enjoy an authentic Emirati welcome with gahwa (Arabic coffee) and sweets, followed by a camel caravan ride, where you’ll witness another perspective of the rare beauty of the desert landscape.

Later, watch a live Arabic coffee-making session with a local. Sip on traditional Emirati coffee and explore the Bedouin village. Spot structures made of natural materials like goat hair and hear stories about the old Bedouin lifestyle and the culture and customs they still value today. 

Next, it’s time to see an unforgettable sunset. Marvel at the endless sand dunes as the sun falls and snap some unbeatable photos.

Before enjoying your own Emirati meal, you can learn more about the Emirati cooking style by seeing a village lady busy making Emirati bread and luqaimat, an Arabic sweet dumpling. 

Then, an Emirati 3-course dinner awaits. Start with an appetizer followed by the main course and a dessert. Take this time to enjoy the lively Bedouin-style entertainment. 

Get dressed in your own typical Arabian costume and pose with the majestic falcon to take more photos to remember your experience.

As night falls, the camp lights will be turned off, allowing you to feel the true essence and magic of the calm desert while enjoying a stargazing session with a telescope. Conclude your trip by hopping back in the vintage Mercedes for one more ride back to your hotel or accommodation in Dubai.

This is a must-to-go activity if you would like to have a great evening in Dubai. Well organised 5-6 hours during which you can feel and taste all the aspects of the desert. Everything is in line with the description. The safari, the dinner and all the other programs were fantastic, the whole night went far beyond our expectation. All the guides are very kind, they take care of everybody. and they do not let you to miss any of the activities. The best among them - of course - is Imran Khan, who was our guide! :) He picked us up at our hotel on time, he is a super kind and funny guide who is always ready to answer your questions - even if the same question was answered a couple of minutes ago. And he always has an interesting story if we run ot of the questions. Incredible experience. Well done to the Team and many thanks and all the best to Imran. Thank You!

It was a really great afternoon/evening. Our guide Raz was very attentive and kept us entertained on the drive to and from camp. He answered our questions in detail and informatively. As promised, the desert tour in the open jeep was back-friendly and simply an experience. Including wildlife viewing and a wonderful sunset. The drivers also distinguished themselves as great photographers. The subsequent BBQ in the camp was more than sufficient and delicious. The camel rides and the evening show were also appropriate. I also found it positive to be able to observe the moon and the stars via a relatively excellent telescope.
