This safari is the best one I have been on in Dubai. There was no desert bashing, falcon pics or other tourist activities. The private preserve was interesting and beautiful too. However, I found the desert safari ride extremely uncomfortable. We were 90% tall people all crammed into the cruiser. I couldn’t move/turn around to take pictures. The person on my rt kept pushing into me when he turned to take pics. I would not go on this part of the trip again. Also, you didn’t allow for the option of indicating who I attended the safari with. My adult daughter attended with me.
Absolutely fantastic experience!! I would recommend this activity to everyone. The whole morning was well organised and fun. The staff were knowledgeable and well drilled, and the balloon ride was a real highlight in Dubai, the most gorgeous sunrise followed by sightings of a falcon, camels and gazelles. This was follows by a lovely breakfast at a cool site in the desert with wifi and a modern twist. I really enjoyed the whole thing and will recommend it to friends and family wholeheartedly.

One of the highlights of our visit to Dubai, our driver and guide, Peter, was an accomplished naturalist. He quickly picked up on our interest in birds and wildlife and we had some great views of oryx, two species of gazelle, numerous LBJ’s and fine views of a Pallid Harrier, all from the comfort of a splendid silver Range Rover. The desert landscapes are spectacular and the stop for a relaxed breakfast was a welcome break at the unexpectedly luxurious Al Maha “desert resort”.
Fantastic from start to finish. The guides really cared about the experience they were delivering and all felt very authentic and premium. Particularly liked the awareness of sustainability of the experience by not offering dune bashing, sticking to the tracks and not using plastic bottles, rare to see in Dubai!
The guide was very nice, the dune bashing fun but not overly scary so the driver got it just right. Trip was comfortable and good, camp part was nice though food not amazing. The trip was well organised, with good communication about pick up even though we booked very last minute, pick up was punctual.
