  • Groups: Embrace the intimate atmosphere! Heritage Safaris keeps group sizes small, typically between 6 to 10 guests, ensuring personalized attention and shared fun.

  • Dining: Every Heritage Safari includes a feast under the starlit sky, with all meals and drinks covered.

Morning vs. evening vs. overnight safari

  • Morning: Budget-friendly escapes with gentle camel rides, sun-kissed breakfasts, and whispers of Bedouin life. Fewer thrills, but serenity and ancient wisdom abound.
  • Evening: Witness the desert ignite in fiery hues! Dune bashing, starlit feasts, and cultural performances transport you to a bygone era. Most activities have a vibrant atmosphere but consider peak-season crowds.
  • Overnight: Ultimate immersion under a canopy of stars. Sleep to the desert's lullaby, wake to a sunrise symphony and savor campfire stories. Premium experience with unparalleled solitude, but remember, the desert beckons an investment.

While some aspects like private dining or extended adventures might cost more, your heritage desert safari is a timeless tapestry woven with Bedouin traditions, regardless of the time you choose.

Heritage Safari Dubai tickets

Budget  

Heritage safaris are a slow burn, a deep dive into the soul of Dubai's dunes. There are no cookie-cutter experiences here. Instead, imagine camel caravans tracing ancient paths, Bedouin stories whispered under starlit skies, and the scent of freshly brewed Arabic coffee warming your hands.

  • Bedouin whispers: Trade tourist traps for genuine Bedouin traditions. Camel caravans, coffee rituals under starry skies, intricate henna designs – every moment whispers ancient stories.
  • Comfort under canvas: Ditch the crowds and embrace luxury. Private desert camps, plush cushions, and gourmet meals cooked over crackling fires are where comfort meets adventure.
  • Falconry's silent dance: Witness the awe-inspiring power of falcons soaring against the endless sky. More than just a show, it's a glimpse into a timeless partnership between man and bird.
  • Firelight and forgotten tales: As flames flicker, hear Bedouin stories whispered through generations. These aren't just campfire yarns; they're threads woven into the fabric of the desert itself.

The heritage desert safari starts from AED 135 but goes up to AED 2000, depending on the luxury and comfort you want in this culturally immersive experience. Sure, it's not the cheapest way to experience the desert, but it's far from ordinary. It's an investment in memories that linger long after the sand settles.

Heritage Safari Dubai tickets

Activities 

Immerse yourself in the heart of the desert with a focus on authentic cultural experiences. Camel rides, intricate henna art, mesmerizing Tanoura dances, and awe-inspiring falconry demonstrations paint a vibrant picture of Bedouin traditions. While thrilling adventures aren't the main focus, you can add your dose of excitement with optional activities like dune bashing, sandboarding, and quad-biking (available for an additional cost). Or, choose from pre-designed packages with specific activities to craft your perfect desert escape.
