The best way to learn about the Arabian night sky is by venturing into the desert on a private night safari, followed by an immersive astronomy session. Explore the desert after dark in a 1950s Land Rover, followed by a nocturnal eco-walk. All while your experienced Conservation Guide tells you more about the desert nightlife. Relax in a peaceful oasis on Royal Desert Grounds, smoke flavourful shisha and savour a delicious three-course dinner featuring Emirati dishes. The evening ends perfectly when a professional astronomer takes you on a journey through the galaxies and tells tales about the starry sky and how the Bedouin used it to find their way. Should you wish to extend the night, you can opt for a traditional overnight experience in authentic stone-dwelling rooms, followed by a lavish breakfast the following morning. You can also upgrade your experience with a sunrise hot air balloon ride after your overnight stay, before returning to the Heritage camp for breakfast.
