Whilst on my Camel Safari, the people in our groups who didn't want to ride the camel for the whole journey rode through the Conservation area in vintage Range Rovers. I heard glowing reports!

To enjoy Dubai desert, when in Dubai ask for Desert Saffari tour. it's from 03.00 Pm to 09.00 Pm with food & belly dance at their camp in desert. As 4X4 vehicle will drive you in bumpy desert, not for very old aged people.

We just went back in Feb with Platinum Heritage amd they were FANTASTIC!! Great time, really wonderful guides, wonderful dinner at desert camp. You cannot go wrong with them!
Not interested in dune bashing or camel rides, do you actually get the opportunity to see some real wildlife on the trips to the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve?

No, the desert is quite far from the city and cannot be accessed by the metro.
