Many people know Dubai for its skyscrapers and glitz of luxury brand shops in fancy malls. But there is more to Dubai than that. The natural beauty of Dubai lies in its deserts which has its own fantastic ecosystem with the right blend of culture and adventure. Desert Safari Dubai takes you an expertly-guided tour of this wide expanse of the desert. For a few hours, you can seclude from the bling of the city and find peace and serenity somewhere in the midst of the sand.
Desert Safari Dubai is not just a long ride where you look at the miles and miles of sand around you. It is actually a whole package, filled with adventure, cultural and historical guidance, a delicious Emirati meal, live entertainment, music, and local talents.
What to do in a Desert Safari Dubai?
You would be surprised to see the long list of activities that can be done in the desert. Don’t limit your safari tour to just riding around only as there is much more to do.
The first image that comes to your mind when you think of a desert is that of a camel. On your Desert Safari Dubai, you can ride on a camel for 15 to 20 minutes. Enjoy the bumpy ride while your guide or driver takes pictures of you against the desert backdrop. This is a magical experience that you will never find in the busy routine of the city.
Dune bashing gives you the opportunity to bash sand dunes in the desert literally. Sand dunes are small hills of sand formed by the movement of the wind. Back in the day, this activity was only for the locals but today, it is accessible for tourists too.
Your Land Cruiser driver will bash the sand dunes at a terrific speed, leaving a storm of sand behind. This is not only an amazing sight but also a thrilling experience that will bring an adrenaline rush to you. The Emirati drivers are experts in driving through the desert so they will take you up and down the sand dunes, at a crazy speed.
There are so many variations of dune bashing and you can choose the one that suits your budget and liking best. For example, you can go dune bashing at sunset which will be an exhilarating experience. Similarly, you can choose between red and golden dune bashing.
Entertainment Towards the End
Once you have had enough of dune bashing after an hour or so, you are taken to a camp where entertainment awaits. Belly dancers, with their exquisite costumes and sensual dance moves, will entertain you while Tanoura dancers will leave your mouth hanging in awe of their majestic movements. Emirati entertainment is not complete without a fire show. You can expect to see an expert, dancing with fire, giving you an epic experience of a lifetime.
Whenever you find yourself in Dubai, take out time for Desert Safari Dubai as you will not find a similar experience on even the most expensive or luxurious vacations.
