What You Can Expect From the Hummer Desert Safari In Abu Dhabi
Does desert safari give you thrills? This is a level up game in the mentioned category. When you fly into Abu Dhabi, it is almost impossible that you failed to notice the alluring desert in the south of the emirate. And to discover it, the very posh and luxurious hummer gives you the opportunity to travel king-size. Leave the contemporary side of the city back and head to the sprawling desert, the looming sand dunes and cultural heritage. The Hummer desert safari in Abu Dhabi is elegant, exciting and pompous.
The escapade is set in a breathtaking site of sand and sun. It begins with a convenient pick up from your hotel or airport. The all-terrain hummer will navigate you through the wonders of the city and slowly the sky soaring buildings will demolish into an unwavering length of beautiful sand. It might seem unusual that someone would abandon the sparkling life of the city and choose an off-road excursion. But why not, when the latter choice is a compilation of all kinds of fun in one package, from adventure to culture.
It’s right from the start that you can feel the adventurous jitters. The dune bashing in the bronze desert is unparalleled in this world. It would give you the treat of a roller coaster, kick of Ferrari and exhilaration of diving. And when its Hummer, the beauty of Arabian deserts blend with the high class of the vehicle, turning your trip to something extraordinary and unforgettable. This almost an hour of the expedition is rip-roaring but still safe. You will be compelled to scream and shout with delight.
The drivers are completely trained and qualified to do their jobs and will leave you with no complaints. They will jump the vehicle off the sand cliffs, drive angular and climb up the hills, draining the sands. It is to experience them believe them. What is uplifting, is the Arabian music in the vehicle that entertains the crowd.
During this, you can hop on and off to capture the quaint and picturesque landscape of the desert. The sunset views, the magical oasis, the changing sand’s colour, will bring out the photographer in you.
Apart from the hummer dune bashing, there are three more methods to scour desert. Stop at a camel farm where you have the privilege to pet and observe the gentle giants of the desert. It is here you have the ticket to living a nomadic life- ask how! You can sit and ride the camel in the royal setting as the sun falls in the backdrop.
Now there are two optional activities that you can book in advance. One is the sandboarding which puts together surfing, skateboarding, and snowboarding. It might look tough, but once you get the trick it is easy to pick up. It is going to be so much fun- you incline and rise on the sand with great enthusiasm. What’s the big deal is uplifting the board each time. Overall, it won’t hurt!
The other is the quad biking, a four-wheeled stimulating activity. You get to zip through the desert all alone and explore the unseen side of this golden sand. Safety is of utmost importance and firstly you’re geared up with a proper suit, helmet and gloves. Then you are informed of the primary tips and you are ready to roll. The casting evening rays will perk up the experience.
When we mentioned culture, it was the later episode of the desert session. After you have had collected lots of electrifying memories, the caravan reaches the Bedouin camps. Here you can relax and unwind in the comfortable and furnished tents that have floor cushions, mats, carpets to lie back. You are greeted with traditional warm welcome. And you will witness the unlimited shisha smoking and refreshments brought at your service. Seems so Emirati, right? Well, this is just the trailer, what comes up next will pop out your eyes. The brilliant Tanoura show and the graceful belly dancing are staged up in the centre of the camp. A professional dancer would whirl, twirl and shake on the most soothing Arabian music. You will be fascinated by the experts doing numerous rounds in the Tanoura performance.
While this display of talent goes on, you can keep praising the acts while devouring the scrumptious buffet. Yes, there is a proper arrangement of international dinner that serves both the vegetarians and non-vegetarians. To enjoy drinks with dinner, there are alcohols available at additional cost. Afterwards, you can wander around and find the expert doing henna tattooing or designing. It is creative and attractive. Also, dress in the traditional Arabian dress and get pictures.
At concluding part, the driver would receive you and drive back to the rendezvous spot.
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.
