Bitten By the Adventure Bug: The Desert Safari in Dubai

Picture this: Perfect dunes till as far as your eyes can see, glistening in the sun, untouched by man and machines – just a wonder of nature in its rawest, purest form.

The vast and spectacular desert in the UAE isn’t just a physical feature. It is in fact, what lends character to the country, and deserves to be explored. Desert Safari Dubai specialises in tours of the sands that help you marvel at this unique wonder. Imagine sitting at the top of a dune to catch the stunning orange sunset and taking a few moments to collect your thoughts, before returning to the car to bounce up and down dunes with exhilarating speed.

Dubai Desert Safari in the surrounding sandy desert is a thrilling and electrifying experience. It is very difficult to choose amongst a variety of adventurous desert trips. The journey starts from pick up point boarding into a 4×4 wheel drive. There are a few kinds of tours available for the Safari, depending on the time and your interests!

For those who plan their trips in a hurry, or have super packed schedules, Morning Desert Safaris are a great option. The adventure tour of sorts can be enjoyed in almost 2 hours. Starting with about 20 minutes of exciting dune bashing along with an exciting camp journey, where one can enjoy the thrill of quad biking, camel riding and even sand skiing. So for those who only want the adrenaline rush and not so much the explorers touch, Morning Safari is the best – no dinner and no camping.

But for those who want to etch the Dubai dunes in their most pleasant travel memories forever, an Evening Desert Safari is a must!

Starting in the afternoon, you will get plenty rest at the first destination near a camel farm. Post that, one gets to experience the gorgeous sunset in the ocean of desert sands, and enjoy camel rides and sand boarding. To add a cultural twist, one can try out beautiful henna designs on their hands and feet, done by local artists. The Safari offers indulgences galore for those in the mood to celebrate, with Arabian food to savour and countless flavoured Shisha options. What’s even more is that you get to watch dancers performing the exotic belly dance to rustic Arabic tunes, right at campsite!

And for the ones who want a full experience of life in the dunes, and Overnight Desert Safari is just what you need. Explore the moonlit Arabian Desert while everyone is resting in the camp. This is one instagrammable destination, that you’ll surely regret not capturing lots of pictures of. Apart from everything the Morning and Evening Safaris have to offer, including the quad bikes, camel rides, belly dancing and shisha etc., what makes this experience the most unique is the tranquility of the desert at night – and how you get to experience it. If you plan to camp in the desert at night which is an altogether different tour, you get to experience the tranquility and mysteriousness of the night desert in a totally different way. From the sound of wind striking the sand in the calm night, to watching the dunes glisten in the pale moonlight, this will become an experience you will cherish forever.

A trip to Dubai is definitely incomplete without an authentic face-to-face with the mighty desert, and these safari tours help you get just that. So if you’re currently planning a trip to Dubai, or it is on your bucket list, remember – you cannot afford to forget booking yourself one!
