Overnight Desert Safari Dubai and Sunrise Hot Air Balloon ride with PLATINUM HERITAGE
In this blog post, we are going to share our experience about an overnight desert safari in Dubai and a sunrise hot air balloon ride with Platinum Heritage.
Have you ever explored the Arabian Desert in an open-top vintage Land Rover?
We were driven through the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve with a tour guide that must eat details of the tour for breakfast, his name was Amjid and he made our wildlife drive a learning experience.
If want to see a new part of the world that is different from any other, we highly recommend this as one of the best tours in Dubai, let alone the world.

Overnight Desert Safari in Dubai and Sunrise Hot Air Balloon Ride
We were invited to Platinum Heritage to see for ourselves what the Middle East’s leading Desert Safari Company has to offer its guests.
Let us just say, our minds were blown as to the quality of every detail, they had thought of absolutely everything and this is why it is regularly in the Hall of Fame for Tripadvisor in World Travel.
From being picked up from a local hotel by their own transport and getting off the hot air balloon for some breakfast in the desert, we were blown away with the organisation and delivery of the whole trip.
Platinum Heritage, was named World Travel Awards Winner at the World Travel Awards (WTA) between 2016-2020.
This demonstrates the sheer class and quality from their experiences over a number of years and we can see them winning many more awards with their tours.
They are continually recognised through the World leaders in activities as the winners of the TripadvisorTravellers’ Choice Award 2020.
A few highlights to our trip were:
- The open-top vintage Land Rover
- Tour guide giving us a run-down of local history and traditions
- Witnessing the local wildlife in the desert – Oryx, Gazelles & Falcons
- Staying the night in a traditional bedouin camp at the Royal desert retreat
- Flying 4,000ft above the Arabian Desert
You arrive at the authentic Bedouin camp to enjoy an unforgettable evening immersed in cultural activities; camel rides, a traditional Yola dance and Arabic drumming.
After the 4-course dinner, sit back and relax in the traditional Majilis or around the bonfire under the starry sky with top-quality shisha and the company of fellow travellers.
Retire to your overnight room, a traditional Arabic stone dwelling complete with bedding.
Wake in the early hours for your sunrise hot air balloon ride and then return to the stillness of the fresh desert in the morning and a gourmet breakfast of hand-cut salmon, Eggs Benedict, fruit platters and so much more.
