Who are the bedouin?

Bedouin comes from the term “Bedu” in Arabic and means
“desert dwellers”. Also known as the nomads of the Arabian desert, Bedouin were the first inhabitants of Dubai. For centuries they traversed the desert with not much more than their families, camels and livestock.

Leaving very little trace as they moved across the desert, nomadic Bedouin are considered as one of the most sustainable and eco-friendly cultures in history. Their rich culture and fascinating traditions are significant to
Dubai’s heritage.

Dubai Bedouin Experience Tours

Morning Bedouin Experience

This morning Bedouin Culture Experience takes you on a cultural journey and historical adventure into the past. Discover what Dubai was like in the 1920’s when nomadic Bedouin wandered the rolling sand dunes of the desert in search of sustenance like food and water.

Evening Bedouin Experience
