What you'll do
Have you ever been to Dubai's largest unfenced desert reserve, covering 10% of the city's entire area? We will pick you up in a modern air-conditioned vehicle from your accommodation in Dubai to begin our 50-minute trip to Dubai's only unfenced desert reserve. Upon arriving at Al Marmoom, we shall board the Vintage G Class Mercedes 1980s, beginning the fantastic ride over the dunes. During our 30-40 minute journey through the reserve, we halt in the middle of the desert for a photo stop. It is a good opportunity to learn about Dubai, its history, and the significance of desert flora and animals in traditional Bedouin life. You may even be able to spot desert some local wildlife while exploring the desert. Proceeding the tour, we visit the Bedouin Village in Al Marmoom Desert Conservation Reserve, made of natural materials like goat hair. Visitors will have the chance to experience traditional Emirati hospitality and receive a warm welcome along with gahwa and sweets. We also have the opportunity to enjoy a camel caravan ride observing the dunes, whilst witnessing the breathtaking beauty of the desert landscape. Don't miss the chance to witness the live Arabic coffee making session after which you can sip on some authentic Emirati coffee yourself. You will be indulging in an Arabian makeover before proceeding to enjoy the traditional Emirati breakfast. After the activities of the morning desert safari have concluded, we will drive you back to your hotel or accommodation in Dubai.
