Our guide will add fun with interesting desert stories. When it’s time for sleep, we will return to the camp. Get back to your tent for a good sleep.

Wake up 15 minutes earlier the sunrise time for witnessing that view. Our guide will take you to the desert on the Camel caravan, that is waiting outside the camp. Go for about 10-15 minutes Camel trekking. And capture that nice view of sunrise over sand dunes.

This is probably the best excursion I’ve ever been on. Imran was the best tour guide I’ve ever had and was so attentive and caring throughout with comedy as a bonus! Would 100% recommend and will be telling my friends to request imran specifically when booking any trips with this company as he really did make it a memorable experience for us both.

This was the most fantastic experience made all the better by our host Imran. From communication before the trip, to the car journey, all of the activities (which were all very well organised) to the camp. Nothing was too much trouble. We couldn’t recommend this trip more for an awesome desert experience.

My friends and I had the pleasure of receiving Imran as out travel guide when booking with OceanAir Travels. Imran was the best host, making sure we had so much fun, teaching us so many things and taking bomb photos. We ended up staying overnight at the Al Marmoom Desert Camp which is also a Conservation reserve so we ere able to do stargazing from a really nice telescope. The overnight stay was so serene that we didn't even sleep in the tents they provided. The experience is absolutely life changing. This is an experience I will make sure to do every time I visit.

This was one of the best experiences I've ever had while traveling overseas. From start to finish, the overnight safari experience exceeded expectations by providing a friendly and knowledgeable tour guide, a full schedule of fun activities, delicious meals throughout the day, and a night sleeping under the stars. Our safari guide, Imran, was also consistently accommodating, and humorous, and an amazing photographer which helped make the trip memorable. If you are considering booking this experience, this is your sign to book today! You won't regret it.

The entire safari experience was absolutely amazing. Everything was worth it. From driving the dune buggy, dune bashing in an SUV, camel riding, camp experiences and performances as well as food (including dinner and next morning breakfast). Special thanks to Imran our safari guide. He is an incredibly patient, pleasant and knowledgeable guide. I would highly recommend this experience and Imran to travelers looking for a memorable and adventurous time in Dubai
