Taking an Abu Dhabi desert tour is a delight for every traveller/ tourist because it is a good mix of fun, adventure and cultural know-how. Be it a car drive or a bumpy camel ride, it is excitement per se. The feel of the terrain is something that you would be engulfed into and would carry along for life!
Dune bashing is one of the best parts of the safari although it comes with many hair raising moments. With the maddening roller-coaster drive, wheel spinning swirls of sand over the car, riding sideways on two wheels and falling back; it is one life time experience. For an adventure lover, it is simply euphoria!
As the sun goes down and you enjoy breath-taking views of the landscape at many picturesque locations, you get an opportunity to carry your memories in the form of photographs.
Before long it is time to enjoy the rich culture and hospitality of the Gulf in the form of fine food spread, beverages on a star studded night surrounded by the cool desert aura. Shisha and belly dancing along the campfire are other attractions that bring laughter and smiles to culminate the night.
If you are lucky enough, you might as well go for some more small adventures in the shape of quad biking, sand boarding or a soothing camel ride.

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.

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.
