Learn more about Dubai’s heritage by throwing yourself in: learn to belly dance, have an intricate henna tattoo painted on your hands or feet, and listen to the notes of traditional music. Retire to bed with just sheets of thin silks separating you from the canopy of stars hanging above you, and wake to the soft hush of the desert and a spectacular sunrise.
Internationally renowned for its birds of prey, while you’re in the desert make sure you catch a falconry display, and see the awe-inspiring partnerships between man and bird, in a display of skills that are as old as the desert.
Camps, feasts, Arabian entertainment and falconry can all be added on to desert safari tours, so make sure you book a package that allows you to experience these historical gems. Be prepared to feel whisked away in time, rid of all worries and troubles that plague modernity, and ready to relax and indulge in a history that awakens all five senses with equal muster.
