A few highlights of our Desert Safari
Our Dubai trip culminated with a great desert expedition. A special courtesy to a dynamic bunch of people from bestdesertsafariindubai who made it a memorable trip.

On the whole, desert safari Dubai was a great trip with something on offer for all tastes.
It lived up to our expectations! All of the inclusions in this safari from bestdesertsafariindubai were up to mark and we enjoyed every bit of it.

The best desert safari in Dubai is the one that resonates the best with your inner self. So what would make you happy? Adventure sports such as dune bashing and sand boarding? Or perhaps a nocturnal safari to appreciate the quiet beauty of the desert at night? Whatever strikes your bell is your personal desert safari and the best one that you can sign up for. So how about it? Are you ready for a fabulous desert safari in the mystical Dubai desert? Let’s take a look at what awaits you in this ages-old landscape!
It’s needless to ask what the adventurer wants – just more adventure, if you please! The desert doesn’t say no, you see. So if you’re the adventurer who’s longing for an adrenalin rush, head straight to the desert during the morning or afternoon, when the sun is shining bright and the desert sands reflect the sunlight like glass shards.
Enjoy a few hours of intense fun on the dunes. Dune bashing is a favourite sport, which involves driving very fast in the desert right up the tall dunes and coming down at speed to head right up the next dune. It’s the desert version of an irregular rollercoaster that’ll keep you breathless. Then there’s sandboarding which is rather like snowboarding except you’ll be doing it on the smooth sands of the dunes. Quad biking and riding on camels are two other sports you will love to enjoy in the desert. Imagine riding a quad bike at great speeds, making sudden stops and jerking around in a split second on the desert’s hard sands, wadis and dunes.
The romantic soul will be totally at home in the desert, especially during the early morning sunrise and in the evening, when darkness steals over the golden sands. Imagine greeting the sun and welcoming a new day, just as the sun’s rays break over the dunes and the wadis. During the evening desert safari Dubai, a romantic soul will first pay homage to the sunset and then enjoy the quietness of the night desert, celebrating in a lovely meal in the welcome tent and watching some bellydancing. An early morning sunrise safari or an evening safari or even a nocturnal safari would be good to satisfy the romantic heart’s yearning to be a part of the desert landscape. The overnight safari would also be perfect for the romantic soul, who is bound to enjoy sleeping under the stars in the cold, dark desert, celebrating in its quietness and beauty.
Animal lovers never had it so good; if you’re one, do sign up for a nocturnal safari, where you can go in search of night desert creatures while seated on a camel. Spot the elusive desert fox, and the reptiles that scurry back into their holes when you appear. The Dubai desert has the occasional gazelle, the oryx, and several other creatures that you’d love to spot and photograph. If you’re lucky, you might spot other rare creatures such as the Arabian leopard, eastern spiny mouse, Arabian tahr, Blanford's fox and Botta's serotine.
A desert safari in Dubai is a definite ode to the Middle Eastern culture and if you’re a culture vulture, you simply shouldn’t miss the evening or overnight safari. During these two safaris, you’ll be exposure to a culture capsule that comes with bellydancing, Tanura show, henna painting and more. You’ll be invited to sit in the huge welcome Bedouin tent and put on some Bedouin robes, and armed with a hookah. After this, as you stretch your legs and sit down, you’ll get to watch a rousing bellydancing performance by one of Dubai’s great dancers. The Tanura show is eye-catching, with the male dancers swirling like dervishes. Stretch out your hands and feet to the henna artists who’ll be happy to paint delicate, traditional designs using the delightful smelling henna. Best of all is the full international and Emirati BBQ buffet dinner that’s laid out in the dining tent. Here’s a chance for you to really study the Middle Eastern culture, by tasting their food. After eating your fill and observing the various food rituals, you will be handed your hookah and some dates for digestion. Enjoy this ritual as it is the same as is followed in actual royal families. The post-dinner rituals are just as important as the dinner rituals. You’ll enjoy the culture, the food, the dancing, the henna and the sheer Middle Eastern atmosphere within the welcome Bedouin tent.
Are you into photography? Then what you want is an early morning or evening desert safari, to capture scintillating pictures of the desert sunrise and sunset, two fabulous opportunities to capture the kind of show on camera that one seldom gets. The early morning safari takes you into the desert just moments before the sun breaks out over the distant eastern skies. Set up your tripod and watch as the sunrays slowly make their way down, defining the tops of the dunes, slowly changing colour from deep black to purple to crimson to orange, as the sun finally breaks through and spills its golden light all over the desert. The evening sunset experience is just as glorious, except in reverse. Watch in awe as the process reverse during sunset, till you’re left in the darkening desert, with the orange globe having said its final goodbye for the day. Capture the entire sequences of sunrise and sunset on video for a fabulous record. There’s much to photograph in the desert layout, apart from the sunrise and sunset. Cast your eyes around and you’ll see beautiful desert reptiles lazing on rocks soaking up the day’s heat. Lovely desert cactuses stand, bravely holding on to their water supply. Dunes cast shadows around them, making for a photographer’s dream of light and shadows. The early morning and evening safaris are the best desert safari Dubai for the avid photographer.
