The new dining experience is the first of its kind in Dubai…

The stunning new Sonara Camp opened on November 28, 2019 in the Dubai Desert Conservation and at the time only a magical dining experience was offered by the eco-friendly restaurant concept. But now, Sonara is also offering a Nomadic camping experience under the stars for guests who want to continue their magical night.


The dining experience is priced at Dhs860 for adults including soft beverages and Dhs380 for children, where you’ll feast on dishes from a specially-crafted menu combining authentic Arabian-inspired dishes, Eastern and Western fusion food and French cuisine.

You can also enjoy a shisha for an additional Dhs70.

To stay over in the nomadic tent, it will cost you Dhs1,500 for four guests – so its perfect for families or if you are with a group of friends. The cost includes a delicious breakfast too.

However, the conservation is also home to oryxes and gazelles, so don’t be surprised to see them wandering around during the special evening.

Other activities include stargazing with the resident astronomer.
