Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

This exciting 4-wheel drive safari is a wonderful way to explore the amazing conservation park that's less than an hour's drive away from the bustling city of Dubai.

At Port Rashid, you will board your all-terrain vehicle for a drive to the entrance of the desert. Here, the view changes dramatically from city skyscrapers and hotels, to endless big-sky landscapes, sand-dunes and brush. On arrival at the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, you will stop to deflate the tires on your vehicle before heading off across the sand.

The reserve is relatively new to the region; in the 1960's, Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed al Maktoum became concerned about the disappearance of his country's wildlife, particularly the Arabian Oryx (a type of antelope), and so he established this reserve as a place where animals could roam safely. This vast tract of unforgiving land is also home to a luxury spa that attracts visitors from all over the world.

Your driver will stop frequently so that you can take photographs of this almost lunar landscape, as you head to an exclusive and private, lively Arabian campsite not open to the public. Here, you will first enjoy a memorable camel ride - cameras at the ready! - before relaxing over a delicious barbecue dinner served with beer and wine.

Your entertainment continues with a traditional belly dancing performance, before you return to your 4WD vehicle. Your tires will be inflated, and once more you will journey across this captivating landscape before arriving back at Dubai city and finally, your ship.
