There’s an element of cliché to riding a camel through the desert, but it’s actually a great insight into the Bedouin culture that preceded the oil-rich UAE that we know today. What’s more, mastering the belligerent beast is half the fun. On camel-back, enjoy the tranquility of the desert at sunset and the darkness under the stars. Desert Safari Dubai provide both pick-up and drop-off services. Dhs400, Dhs280 (kids). 4pm-9.30pm.
