For the first time in the 20-year history of the gated 225-square-kilometre Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve (DDCR), visitors can enjoy a self-drive safari in their own vehicles through the unique area under the expert guidance of Sand Sherpa.

The sunset adventure begins with a self-drive safari as we guide and instruct participants over hand-held radios and spot indigenous wildlife, including gazelle, oryx, monitor lizards and countless birds, and discover fox dens and natural phenomena. Adults and kids alike will learn all about the desert, its history and its inhabitants during this informative 75-minute safari.

Upon arrival at Sherpa Camp, participants will be able to enjoy a birds of prey interaction as the sun sets in the desert, which, during summer, experiences lesser humidity than the city, making it the ideal spot for an escape in nature that is close to home. An indigenous owl, hawk, eagle and falcon join us for a unique experience in the desert and every participant can take turns walking with, and flying, our trained birds of prey.
