Desert Safari in Dubai


There is simply no way for your travel to be complete unless you take a desert safari in Dubai or experience dune bashing.

A desert safari in Dubai or dune bashing, as it is commonly referred to, is a form of off-roading exploration of sand dunes. 

The deserts in Dubai share an intrinsic link with Dubai’s rich history. 

The sand dunes, fluid and rolling, lap the foothills of Mount Hajar on the Eastern border and form a part of Dubai’s identity. 

A few decades back these dunes were the home of nomads and Bedouins, however now they have become a major tourist attraction and home to many unique mammals, reptiles and birds. 

The safari’s provide an amazing adventure into Dubai’s past and present. 

Some of the most popular desert safari’s in Dubai are: Morning safari (Sand Ski & Dune drive), Evening Desert safari, Full Day Adventure safari, Overnight Desert safari, Dune Buggy safari, Quad Bike/ATV safari, Dubai Hummer safari, Hatta Mountain safari, and Hajar Mountains safari. 

In this article we will discuss in detail the morning, evening and overnight safari’s as well as touch on details of the other types of safari’s offered.

The Morning desert safari in Dubai, otherwise known as the sand ski & dune drive is a 4 hour activity filled with fun and excitement. 

The day begins early at 9:00 am, there is a complimentary shuttle pick up from your hotel or residence and you are taken to the dunes for a desert drive followed by a sand ski adventure down the sandy slopes towards the Bedouin desert camp for camel rides. 

A truly memorable adventure that will set the tone for the rest of your Dubai trip.  The price is remarkably reasonable at $67 per person. 

The Evening Desert safari,  comes complete with a barbeque dinner and promises a truly rare experience as you watch the golden sun set over the horizon. 

You depart in the afternoon in a four wheel drive vehicle for a thrilling drive over the rolling dunes and deep into the heart of the desert and onto a visit to a camel farm. 

There will be an authentic Arabian camp set up awaiting you where you can enjoy the true ambiance of a typical Bedouin campsite complete with traditional Arabian carpets, low tables and cushions. 

You will partake of a splendid buffet dinner with a variety of meats, salads, main course and desserts.  The highlight of the evening will be a performance by an authentic exotic belly dancer performing under the moonlit night.  This adventure can be yours for only $59 USD.

The Overnight Desert safari, similar to the other two safari’s mentioned in this article, promises a fun-filled adventure that you will soon not forget.  The Overnight Desert safari is the most unique experience because it is designed to help you appreciate the true flavor of the desert. 

The entire duration of the safari is 18 hours and includes breakfast and dinner.  The tour departs at 4:00 in the evening and you are taken on an exciting ride through the dunes into the heart of the desert where you will settle down for the evening under a star-lit sky surrounded by the sounds of nature. 

After a restful sleep under the canopy sky you awaken with the desert sunrise to a traditional Arabian breakfast before returning to Dubai.  This marvelous adventure can be enjoyed for $118 USD per person.
