Want to get away from your hectic schedule and just getaway? We have just the package for you. The package is from afternoon till 10 am the next day which includes an adventure packed with a vintage Land Rover wildlife drive, falcon show, Dubai camel ride, cultural entertainment, 4 Course dinner, and a Gourmet breakfast after a magical sunrise hot air balloon ride.
It’s literally going to be the best desert safari in Dubai. Begin your overnight adventure with a pickup from your Dubai hotel for a trip into the desert. Arrive at the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve and pick up your Adventure welcome kit, which includes a traditional Arabic headscarf.
Head into the desert excursion in your luxurious open-roof vintage Land Rover, a mode of transport common during desert expeditions in the 1950s. Listen to your conservation guide’s stories about Dubai’s history and present, as well as the various traditions and practices you will experience as the evening continues as you drive.
Take pictures in the sand dunes during the sunset and watch UAE’s national bird – the falcon perform some amazing tricks. Pass the softly flickering flames from the lights that mark the entrance to your authentic Bedouin Camp, and then exit your Land Rover to take a seat at your shared table. A variety of cultural rituals are demonstrated prior to the start of your meal. Enjoy an Arabic coffee while watching dancers perform to popular Emirati songs, or get a henna tattoo, smoke a shisha pipe, or even ride a camel – the traditional mode of Bedouin transportation. Then it is only a matter of finishing your four-course meal under the stars. The dishes, like the events at the camp, are all traditional Emirati specialties that combine flavors from all around the Middle East.
After your meal, relax around the bonfire and gaze up at the stars, try shisha if you like, and then make your way to your Arabic stone shelter — complete with a comfortable mattress, pillows, and blanket — nestled inside the camp. Settle in for the night and enjoy sleeping in the middle of the desert for a memorable overnight desert safari!
Since you are just a few minutes away from the Hot Air Balloon take-off spot, you can sleep in later than passengers arriving from Dubai. When you arrive, you will be given a safety briefing before climbing inside the balloon basket with Balloon Adventures Dubai, the world’s most experienced Hot Air Balloon Company. Feel your adrenaline rush as your balloon slowly ascends andget the real thrill of a hot air balloon ride in Dubai!
As you ascend, take in the breathtaking sunrise views and listen to your pilot’s informative commentary on the geology and wildlife of the endangered Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, all while keeping an eye out for wandering animals such as gazelles and camels.
Enjoy a smooth touchdown managed by your pilot after your nearly 1-hour flight and walk down onto the stable ground.
If you like, you can purchase a quality recording of your flight (Not included in the package) to relive the moment at home. You will be taken to a private desert conservation reserve where you can freshen up in nice, private toilets. Breakfast will consist of delectable treats such as hand-cut smoked salmon and caviar.
