Bedouin Culture Safari

A fully immersive morning desert safari exploring the Bedouin culture
Immerse yourself in the ultimate cultural experience with this hands-on desert safari. See first-hand how the Bedouin lived and survived the desert – by camel and even by vintage Land Rover.

At a nomadic-inspired camp, you will meet with Bedouin storytellers and a friendly Saluki dog and falcon. Learn how our Emirati ancestors used to herd, hunt, and thrive by using their resources. Experience a traditional Emirati breakfast and join in authentic Bedouin performances.

This experiential morning is sure to give you insight into the rich culture and heritage of the United Arab Emirates and the people who made it the beautiful country it is.
