Full description

Immerse yourself in a local Dubai experience with a guided camel safari, stargazing, and barbecue. Take in the sandy dunes from the back of a camel as the sun sets into the horizon. Enjoy local treats in a Bedouin tent and watch a traditional dance performance while delving into the barbecue buffet.

Benefit from pickup at your hotel in Dubai, then start your journey to the peaceful desert surroundings for a sunset experience of a lifetime. Make your way to a camel caravan, and experience the beauty of the landscape from the back of one of the so-called ships of the desert for about 45 minutes.

Try a shisha pipe or get a henna tattoo on your hand. Dress in traditional attire and pose for a photo with a falcon. Feast on a barbecue buffet dinner as you watch an authentic Khaliji dance performance. When the camp lights are turned off, feel the magic of the desert while stargazing with a telescope.

Excellent service and organization. We were picked up at the exact time, our driver Safeer was very friendly and gave us some interesting information along the way to the camp. The camp was beautiful, our camel ride was about 45 minutes and our camel handler made it exciting and fun. We stopped for pictures and he did some awesome shots of us. The food was delicious, everyone was very friendly and welcoming. I would do it again.

We booked this trip as our daughter really loves camels and wanted to do it. My husband and I (we both have been a lot to Gulf countries, incl desert events) didn’t have high expectations and were afraid that it would become a very touristy activity and not nice at all. Thankfully we were proven wrong! On the contrary it turned out to be one of the nicest activities we had during our trip. The pick-up went without any issues, driver was on time and we had contact through WhatsApp beforehand (both with driver & GetYourGuide), the camp was very nicely made (actually the nicest one I have seen so far), our guide there took really good care of us, our camel tour lasted for longer than expected and the camel guide took his time to take pictures. Back in the camp we were one of the first guests for the evening and all took great care of us. We were served Arabic tea and coffee and had nice chats. Time flew by fast; good quality of the dinner; show afterwards well arranged; great star gazing

Hi. Overall it was a great experience. Our guide, Omar Miro was great: arrived on time to pick us up from the hotel, giving info about Dubai and taking care of us in the camp. Dinner exceeded our expectations with amazing Emirates, Morrocan and Indian food. Beautifully arranged Bedouin camp with different activities and traditional music in the background. Nice camel ride although I expected it to go further into the desert.Everything well organised with attention to the detail I.e. blankets for cool evenings. Truly recommended 👌 xx
