Whether you are visiting Dubai with family or friends, the desert safari is one attraction you don’t want to miss out on. There are three different timings for desert safari in Dubai, namely: morning tour, evening tour, and an overnight desert safari tour. For the ultimate experience, we recommend that you choose the evening desert safari tour.
The evening desert safari tour typically starts from 14:00 to 20:00 local time. There are various packages and deals that you can choose from, depending on the number of people with you (you can also book a solo package). The prices also depend on your choice to travel by bus or by a 4×4 to the desert safari location. The tour company will provide you with pick and drop service from your area of residence whether it is in Dubai, Sharjah or Ras Al Khaimah to ensure that you have the most comfortable and hassle-free experience.
The tour starts at the outskirts of Dubai city in the middle of the desert, where you can experience a range of engaging and fun-filled activities like:
- Dune-bashing: Brace yourself to experience an exciting jeep ride over the beautiful red dunes of Dubai. This experience is a must for thrill-seekers as it will excite you as the jeep ride will make you feel as if you are floating on water instead of sand. You can also drive quad bikes over the dunes and get camel and horse rides as well.
- The Sunset experience: As the sun sets over the red dunes, you will feel a sense of wonder and peace while truly experiencing the charm of Dubai. It would also be a great chance to take stunning photos of yourself and your friends/family with the elegant sunset in the background.
- Traditional Performances: After the first few activities, you’ll be driven to a Bedouin-themed tent, equipped with separate washrooms for men and women, an Arabian themed décor, and a comfortable sitting area. While seated there, you’d get to witness eye-opening performances like belly-dancing, Tanura dance shows, and fire shows from highly-skilled performers. We promise this would be a totally wondrous and unforgettable experience.
- Delicious Traditional Cuisine: Finally, before heading back, you’d be treated to an array of mouth-watering traditional Arabian dishes like roast lamb, Biryani rice and kebabs.
While experiencing the desert safari in Dubai is a must, your trip would not be complete if you don’t experience the enchanting Dhow cruise. Luckily, AHA tourism provides you with a combo package of a desert safari as well as a Dhow Cruise for as little as 99 AED. The Dhow cruise is an ancient Arabian traditional-styled boat with all the modern facilities like air-conditioning, a relaxing environment, a continental buffet dinner and much more.
The cruise will last roughly around 2 hours and is a must if you want to experience the culture of Dubai in a short span in a VIP environment. The cruise will sail in the Dubai Marina, and during the cruise, you will get a chance to see amazing views and local attractions such as the Gold Souk (an old and world-famous gold trading center), the Rolex Twin Towers, as well as the Burj al Arab, among several other beautiful sites.
So, if you are interested in a trip to Dubai and want to experience the local culture and also enjoy a bit of adventure in a short span of time, the Desert Safari Dubai plus the Dhow Cruise Creek deal is perfect for you. Be sure to bring your sunglasses, sunscreen, spare shoes/sandals, and most importantly, a camera to capture the experience of a lifetime.
