Dubai Safari tours.
Discover the pristine eco-system of the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve on an early morning 5-hour desert safari by museum quality 1950s Land Rover.
Your professional guide will skilfully pilot a classic Land Rover over the pristine dunes and ghaf forests. No other vehicle offers a more traditional desert experience, or better opportunities to spot exotic wildlife.
Search for Arabian oryx, a true modern-day conservation success story. Look out for gazelles, desert monitors, and abundant birdlife through on board high quality binoculars. You might even see rare a Gordons wildcat.

On return to the camp, you will enjoy a freshly cooked local snack and have the chance to ride the ship of the desert, the camel.
Siwa Oasis Tour
After meeting in Egypt’s capital, we head towards Marsa Matrouh on Egypt’s Mediterranean shore. With sandy white beaches and crystal clear waters, many believe that Cleopatra herself bathed in the tranquil waters of Marsa Matrouh. We, too, are going for a bath in the Mediterranean Sea and stay for the night in a hotel.
After breakfast, we continue our journey towards Siwa Oasis. Once arrived at the oasis, we visit the Mountain of the Dead (Gebel al-Mawta), which features a large number of tombs carved into the mountain that are dating back to the the 26th Dynasty (664 BC–525 BC) and the Ptolemaic era (305 BC–30 BC), Cleopatra’s Pool, a swimming pool fed by a natural hot spring, the Temple of the Oracle. The last sight of this day is Bir Wahed, a sulfurous spring outside Siwa. For the night we camp out in the desert on the shores of the Great Sand Sea.
On our fourth day we continue our journey on the Darb Siwa and arrive in Bahariya in the afternoon.
Valley of the Whales Tour
After meeting in Cairo, we will be leaving Egypt’s capital heading south towards Faiyum Oasis. We first visit the Lake Qarun Protected Area and the waterfalls of Wadi al-Rayan Protected Area. In the evening we head out to the dunes where we spend the night under the stars
On our second day, we visit the Wadi al-Hitan (Valley of the Whales) UNESCO World Heritage Site, which was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2005 for its hundreds of fossils of the earliest—and now extinct—suborder of whales, the archaeoceti. No other place in the world yields the number, concentration, and quality of such fossils.
After a night under the open sky, breakfast will be ready at about 8:00 am and the early birds will enjoy the sunrise in this spectacular place. We leave the Agabat Valley and head to the even more spectacular White Desert National Park. Not without good reason the White Desert National Park is honored as a “Lonely Planet Top Choice” with raving reviews on TripAdvisor: This spectacular place with its blindingly white sculptures nature has been shaping for hundreds and thousands of years looks like it is on another planet. Later that day, we pass great sand dunes where you might want to try sandboarding before returning to Bahariya Oasis. We arrive in Bahariya Oasis at around 1:00 pm just in time for our last lunch à l’égyptienne before you take your drop-off taxi or the public bus to get to Cairo where you are going to arrive at about 6:00 pm.
