Experience Dubai's award-winning safari with Platinum Heritage that promises to take you on a journey back in time to explore life in the desert like a true nomad. The Heritage Desert Safari from Platinum Heritage presents a snapshot of life in Dubai more than half a century ago. A professional conservation guide accompanies you on this experience to take you on a fascinating wildlife drive through the Dubai Desert Conversation Reserve for a chance to spot native floral and fauna. And you can now book this experience online as a MyConcierge member. 

Unlike any other Dubai Desert Safari, Platinum Heritage will take you on a desert drive in a 1950’s vintage Land Rovers. As the first motorised vehicles used in the Dubai desert, these Series 1 and 2 Land Rovers have become symbolic of Dubai’s heritage and venturing to unexplored territories. This experience gives you the chance to visit a ghaf forest for spectacular photo opportunities, where you are also likely to witness herds of Arabian oryx and gazelles in their natural habitat. 

After the wildlife drive, you will be treated to a spectacular falconry display led by a professional falconer. Watch these magnificent birds in full flight, displaying their speed and agility as they hunt for prey. During the demo, you will get to know more about ancient training techniques and learn how the Bedouin used falcons for hunting. Then, settle down and watch the sun setting against the backdrop of endless sand dunes in the Arabian desert. 

Afterwards, arrive at an authentic Bedouin camp, gently lit with traditional lamps and nestled inside a private desert retreat, for a sumptuous Arabic meal. Discover the rich culture and traditions of Dubai’s heritage with live demonstrations of Arabic coffee and bread making, henna painting, camel rides and traditional performances. Then, feast on a four-course dinner under the stars, following which you can relax in a traditional majlis and try some shisha.
