Morning Desert Safari

Dubai and Sharjah Desert

If you want to surf the sandy ocean, then morning desert safari will suit you. You can get high on dune bashing, quad biking, sand skiing and camel rides. Quad biking comes at an added price of AED 30 in most plans.

You will be entertained in a 4WD vehicle through most of the trip. Some tour operators offer vintage drives as old as 60 years for those who appreciate a classic touch while others boast of late models of land cruisers.

Other activities include henna painting and camel rides. After 20-30 minutes of dune bashing, you will be taken to your camp where you can unwind. You may want to get traditional henna tattooed on your hands or travel the desert the bedouin way- that is on camels.

You will be picked up from your hotel in a large, air conditioned 4WD with a capacity to accommodate 6-8 passengers. So if you are a group of 6, then you have the entire ride to yourself without the presence of strangers. After the trip is over, the drop-off will be available as well.

The basic features of the package remain the same though. You will be picked up in a 4WD along with other passengers. Upon reaching the destination, you will be entertained with the Emiratis’ favourite pastime -that is dune bashing. This involves dashing through the mighty sand dunes at full throttle as your vehicle bumps and drifts spraying sand in its wake.

Thrill aside, the dunes look magnificent at sunset and are a sight to marvel. Your driver will probably stop at a viewpoint where you can take in the majestic beauty of the desert. Don’t forget to make some memories here.

Some tour operators also offer sand-skiing and you might want to take up on the opportunity. You will then be driven off to your enclosure which basically comprises of bedouin camps pegged up. Here you can enjoy the rest of your tour package which entails, henna painting, camel rides and belly dancing. You can pose in the traditional Arab costume, sit back and smoke Sheesha or have a picture taken with a Falcon perched on your arm. The last on the list is of course an Emirati buffet cuisine which you will be served on site.

Overnight Desert Safari

Dubai and Sharjah Desert

Soft glow of the lamps lighting up the golden desert sand, warm lights in the tent as you cozy up for the night, an overnight safari conjures up sweet nostalgia of old days. Extending Sunset Safari further, you have an overnight desert safari which is a much better way to enjoy the grandeur of the desert and contemplate upon life’s finer points.

You probably like your coffee in cafe or on a wooden bench under the tree or in a winter night on your patio— but here you enjoy a steaming cup of Arabic Coffee (Qahwa) in the midst of a desert sitting by an antique lamp with your companions.

Some tour operators also offer stargazing with a professional astronomer as part of the package. The luxury level is of course dependent on the price you pay. You get what you pay for in the desert safari experience and it's all worth it.

Things to be concerned about

  • Do check with your tour operators if they offer washrooms facility. Nothing spoils a trip more than having to attend nature’s call in the dunes.
  • Bring a tripod along if possible, especially if you are on an overnight desert safari. The transition of dusk to dawn in a desert is mesmerising and you can create a time lapse of these twilight hours.
  • Bars and belly dancing are not operational in Ramadan or during religious holidays.
  • Leave unnecessary gadgets and tech behind. Signal reception is poor if not null in the desert. Moreover, there are no charging points for your devices.
  • Avoid bringing big luggage along with you. The vehicles do not have enough room for unnecessary belongings.
  • Dune bashing and desert trips are not suitable for pregnant women or people with spinal problems.
  • If you get motion sickness, hate rollercoaster or are travelling with children, then dune bashing is a big no. You can opt for a wildlife drive instead.
  • It would definitely be wise to carry a camera.

Is pick-up available from private residencies?

Most tour operators offer pick-up from wherever in Dubai you ask them to.
